US/EUROPE: Sterling Modular Systems’ European distribution is handled by MasteringWorks GmbH, reports David Davies. Founded by Jim Maher in 1989, Sterling Modular provides a range of ‘off-the-shelf’ furniture products as well as the opportunity to purchase customised and semi-customised solutions. The company is now seeking to extend its reach and increase its profile in the EMEA regions.
Recording, mixing, post-production and mastering functions are all accommodated by the Sterling Modular range, which has lately registered installs at Germany’s Austria’s Sunshine Mastering and Amsterdam Mastering (pictured, featuring a ‘Plan A’ version console), among many other locations.
There are six standard modular designs for mastering/audio console furniture (Plans A to F), with each design featuring various options such as speaker platforms, keyboard shelves, LCD screens arms and more. The resulting solutions can be specified by need and price through the Sterling Modular website.
Sterling Modular also produces a range of custom and semi-customised audio furniture for mixing consoles, as well as a full line of gear racks.
Looking to the future, Maher tells PSN-e: “In 2010 we are focusing on our ‘Pro Series’ line of consoles. This includes a full complement of integrated patchbays, buckets, stands and more for the Rupert Neve Designs 5088, API 1608, ICON, and any other console. This is an exciting concept that brings all formats and accessories together in a seamless professional package. So far the response has exceeded our expectations.”
