Harman Pro North America (HPNA) has expanded its support personnel
by appointing Shane Morris as principal engineer for Soundcraft and
Studer’s digital console offerings. Although
Morris is primarily tasked with providing technical sales, engineering,
and support for sound reinforcement customers using Soundcraft Vi

audio industry experience, initially starting out in his native
Australia designing and building mixing consoles and power amplifiers.
Upon moving to the UK in 1978, he accepted a position with Soundcraft,
then in London, as international service manager, eventually relocating
to Los Angeles to accept the role of technical manager for Soundcraft
USA during its early ’80s years in Santa Monica. Following his tenure
there, Morris spent a short time with Apogee Digital Electronics in
L.A. before returning to Australia where he supported the newly formed

was employed as a US technical sales and support engineer for DiGiCo.

is a brilliant ‘point person’ to champion and support our digital
console ranges,” says Nick
Owen, HPNA vice president of sales. “Over the past 30 years, not only has he
amassed a tremendous amount of real-world sound reinforcement
experience and knowledge, but he’s also forged close relationships with
many of the world’s top touring companies and engineers. We’re
overjoyed to have him back on our team and are already seeing our
digital console presence here in the US grow thanks, in part, to his
contributions and expertise.”

When asked what
brought about his return to Soundcraft and Studer, Morris points out,
“The technology, surface, and ergonomics of these consoles are largely
what have drawn me back, as well as the opportunity to again work with
people that appreciate my input and recognize what we will be able to
do together.”
