Los Angeles, CA (April 7, 2016): As part of its ongoing efforts to offer its customers the widest range of services possible, Guitar Center announces a new partnership with Nashville-based company Studio Automatic, a full-service online recording studio and production operation. This is the first time that Guitar Center has signed on as the exclusive retail affiliate with such a service, and it represents a new initiative for the company and expanded opportunities for its loyal customers.
With Studio Automatic, users can send in song ideas in any form (DAW or GarageBand session, iPhone recording, voice memo, etc.) and receive in return a professional-quality recording of their song at an affordable price within 5-7 business days.
Studio Automatic was created by Nashville musician, singer, songwriter and producer Zac Maloy. After 20 years in the music business (including as a founding member of iconic 90s alt-rock band The Nixons), Maloy has experienced virtually every music venture scenario imaginable. He has recorded over one hundred songs by major label artists, including Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Halestorm, Daughtry, Barenaked Ladies, The Jonas Brothers and many more. The other professionals working behind-the-scenes alongside Maloy include the industry’s best music producers, session musicians, recording engineers, and audio mixing and mastering engineers, who have worked on major label albums with years of professional experience.
“Studio Automatic provides you access to top producing talent and instrumentalists – all working diligently on a polished version of YOUR song. Guitar Center is giving us an even larger platform to reach more people, and we cannot wait to help these individuals create a version of their song they can truly be proud of. We are passionate about Studio Automatic and the work we do, and we are pleased to have a stamp of approval from Guitar Center.”
– Zac Maloy, Founder of Studio Automatic
“Guitar Center continues to evolve and expand the scope of what we offer our customers. Obviously, we source instruments, tools and gear to beginners and professionals and everyone in between, and now we have moved into valuable services far beyond the basics – for example: lessons, repairs and support, and cutting-edge third-party services such as Studio Automatic. In other words, we aim to be THE comprehensive resource for all musicians, and the addition of Studio Automatic is another step in that direction. We look forward to many of our talented customers taking advantage of this powerful service.”
– Michael Amkreutz, Guitar Center Executive Vice President, Merchandising, Marketing and E-Commerce
