Pensado’s Place has positioned itself as “the most influential show for audio engineers,” mixers and producers (Forbes Magazine) in just three years.

As a leading educational resource, Pensado’s Place is helping build the next generation of audio greats.
Herb Trawick, the Co-host/Executive Producer and Creator of Pensado’s Place, as well as Manager and Advisor to Co-host Dave Pensado, stated, “We are very thrilled to have Audio-Technica come on board and support Pensado’s Place. Just like Dave and myself, A-T is strong believer in audio education, which is why they are a perfect match to work with the entire Pensado team.”
“As an engineer and mixer myself, I am very familiar with Audio-Technica’s microphones and have an intimate knowledge of using them in the studio,” stated Dave Pensado (Co-host of Pensado’s Place, GRAMMY®-winning mix engineer, Teacher). “In addition to making great products, the company has so many talented people on their team, and I look forward to working closely with them over the next year.”
