Pro Tools Specialists From the Beginning

Industry veteran, Russ Belttary, founded RSPE in 1991 when Pro Tools 1.0 had just been released. Quickly realizing its’ potential to revolutionize video post, RSPE immediately began working with the Hollywood post-production community, innovating new ways to integrate Pro Tools with video production way before synchronization with film became available. Since then, the team at RSPE Audio have sold countless Pro Tools systems to go along with outboard gear, recording consoles, and all things pro audio.

A History of Innovation.


At RSPE we're always trying to think ahead. It's why we were early pioneers of Pro Tools for use in post production and professional music production. It's why we first created the Avid S6 Configurator, the Yamaha Nuage Configurator, and Pro Tools Upgrade Configurator.


It's why we're always thinking about what's next.


We're not just selling gear at the most competitive prices. We're educating and learning from our clients to create the best possible purchasing experience in pro audio.

Founded in 1991, RSPE has been integrating analog & digital audio with the film music industry since day 1.

Representing Digidesign since the release of version 1, RSPE has been a Pro Tools elite reseller since 1993.

RSPE became an Avid VAR in 1996, providing Avid's Film Composer and Media Composer, the premiere film and video workstations to the leading filmmakers in Hollywood.

RSPE was the only reseller on the West Coast to sell and support AudioVision, the first official collaboration between Avid and Digidesign.
