Mark Ludmer here, and ROCK PRO STUDIOS is my personal AV production facility now located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. With former California locations in West Los Angeles and Torrance, as well as Santa Barbara, and Palm Springs, I've been recording in one form or another since the late 70s. As a performing multi instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, I initially pursued recording and producing as a strategy to  help me achieve the musical compositions I heard in my head and in my dreams. 

 It all started when I attended Sound Masters Audio Institute of Engineering out of ABC Dunhill studios in Hollywood, learning recording engineering from the great Brian Ingoldsby. I then cut my teeth at Prime Track Studios in North Hollywood recording 100s of local bands and international artists on 2” tape with both 16 and 24 track head blocks. I’ve continually developed my own personal project studios since.

In 1986, I shifted away from working as a pro recording engineer, to the more stable career in the Musical Instrument field of manufacturing and distribution. Working for companies such as Alesis, Event Electronics, RODE Microphones, and Que Audio. I continued to stay active in each company's in-house studio. 

In 1988, while working at Alesis as an executive manager, co-owner Russell Palmer decided that we could produce our own product videos using borrowed or rented equipment. This led to a full in-house AV production room, the first of any music manufacturer. We also recorded bands, and did lots of product testing in that studio. Alesis was instrumental in ushering in the home recording and project studio market with the release of the ADAT in 1994. 

In 1994 I shifted to Broadcast TV, starting in Master Control with NBC affiliate KMIR TV6 in Palm springs.  With my experience in AV production, I quickly moved into the position of directing for the 6pm and 11pm live newscasts while dialing in my video editing and 3D modeling, and graphics design skills. I then moved  into  similar positions at ABC affiliate KEYT CH3 in Santa Barbara.

In 1996 I shifted back to the MI world with my old cohorts at Alesis who started Event Electronics which led me to running the US distribution for  Rode Microphones from 2001 thru 2010. In 2005, Rode bought Event Electronics, and I moved back to Santa Barbara to run both RODE and EVENT's US distribution.

In 2011 I moved to another Australian microphone company (Que Audio) running their US distribution through 2016. At that time I moved to full time freelance work as an MI sales and marketing specialist, and as an audio video specialist. 

I’ll continue to sharpen my skill set in audio and video, while aiming to keep current with the latest digital sales and marketing trends, and digital creative technology.
