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, Russ 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. At that same time, top recording studios were discovering the capabilities of digital editing but were afraid to leave the comforts of working with analog tape. Two things made the transition easy. Raw fingers from a night of editing 2" tape with razor blades with takes lost forever, and RSPE’s vision and tireless dedication to making Pro Tools the industry standard for both music production and video post. Since then, we have sold Pro Tools systems, and countless units of outboard gear and recording consoles.
