SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Recently crashing onto the music scene, emerging artist, engineer, and producer Ron Kelly, better known under his pseudonym ron [k], has finally garnered the exposure he’s needed to launch his career. Today, Kelly was recognized for his achievements as one of two winners of HARMAN’s Lexicon ‘Endorsee Quest 2013.’ The contest was designed to recognize individuals who have experienced success working with Lexicon. As a winner, Kelly will receive $1,000 in credit towards the purchase of additional Lexicon gear and will be featured on the Lexiconpro.com homepage.
Gravitating towards the world of engineering at an early age, in 2000 Kelly was first able to upgrade his home studio to the professional level with Lexicon’s Lexiverb reverb plug-in for ProTools and the PCM 81. Kelly proudly still loves and uses his PCM81 for intricate/otherworldly effects he crafts for his music. By 2005, his career had led him to enter the post-production world as a re-recording mixer and sound designer where he became well versed with the Lexicon 480L unit, using it on everything from film and television to theatrical trailers and video games. , Kelly’s recent single ‘Stripped’ will be featured in an upcoming film directed by Joel Soisson entitled ‘Cam2Cam.’
“I’ve done shoot outs with other similar high end pro audio reverb/multi-effects processors and not one of them touches the sonic quality that Lexicon produces or the unparalleled technology that is implemented in the design of all their products,” commented Kelly. “Lexicon pioneered digital reverb. They wrote the book on it, they know what they’re doing and they do it better than anyone else!”
“We wanted to show our support for artists like ron [k], so we decided to let our Facebook fans make their best pitch on why they should get an endorsement. We looked at a lot of fantastic submissions, but Ron’s passion really shined through. We are excited to give him a chance to show everyone what he can and does do!” stated Noel Larson Market Manager, Portable PA, Tour and Recording, HARMAN Signal Processing.
For his prize, Kelly has chosen the PCM Total Bundle reverb/effect plug-in. “Whether it’s the PCM Total Bundle of plug-ins or Hardware, it will be put to immediate and excellent use for both studio and live effects processing,” explained Kelly.
The quality and features are everything when it comes to the gear Kelly selects. For an up and coming artist like Kelly, price is also an important factor in every purchase. “This is another place Lexicon excels. In my opinion all of their products are well worth more than the price tag they sell for,” said Kelly “Whether you’re on a smaller budget or you’re at a level of blank check spending privileges, Lexicon’s product line is going to deliver the best bang for your buck, hands down.”
