Testa and Studiorack S4FR Take on Recording Projects for Heavy Hitter Artists Sean”Diddy” Combs, Pharrell Williams,  T-Pain and Rodney Jerkins

Known as one of New York City’s finest Recording/Mix Engineers in the industry, Matthew Testa boasts a roster that involves some of music’s elite, such as Grammy super star Sean “Diddy” Combs, Owner of Bad Bay Entertainment, Producer/Artist Mario Winan and Rapper Jay-Z. And since he works with these top-of-the-line artists, he demands top-of-the-line recording tools, such as his newly acquired S4FR Storage Array from PROAVIO™. Over the years Testa has contributed to three ®Grammy nominated albums, along with over four million album unit sales. Also, in late 2007, Testa began working with Bad Boy Records’ newest acts Day 26, Danity Kane, and Donnie Klang also stars of the hit MTV television show “Making The Band” continued to fine-tune his craft by working with artists such as Swiss Beats and Ashanti.


Even most recently Testa secured numerous recording sessions with artists such as T-Pain, Rodney Jerkins, and Pharrell Williams while using his PROAVIO S4FR. As a Recording/Mix Engineer, he deals with countless factors to make the perfect-sounding record, which means he needs speed, replacement and capacity. No matter the application, Testa says the S4FR plays a prominent role in his production process. “Just by initially looking at the aesthetics you can tell PROAVIO sets itself apart from its competitors. The S4FR has played an essential part of my recordings lately because of its speed, memory and most importantly, its silent operation. I can even track vocals in the same room while the S4FR is running and it works perfectly with my Pro Tools HD Setup - basically it makes my job easier” said Testa. “I definitely have my eye on the S4UF, because of its removable hard drives, which come in handy.”
