Meyer Sound has announced two promotions in its digital products team, with Richard Bugg now serving as audio show control product manager and Jason Rahoff taking over many of Bugg’s former responsibilities as the company’s new senior digital products support specialist.
In addition, Cirque du Soleil veteran Robert Mele has joined the support staff as digital products field support specialist.
“These new appointments are a direct result of the rapidly growing acceptance of our digital products,” comments John McMahon, Meyer Sound’s executive director of operations and digital products. “This personnel expansion ensures that our technology remains the leading choice of the creative community pushing to transform sonic experiences worldwide.”
Bugg has more than 12 years of experience in technical support for Meyer Sound show control systems, and has been a principal seminar leader on the topic in Meyer Sound’s education program.
In his new position, he will work closely with R&D, marketing, sales, and technical services departments to identify needs and develop new show control technology solutions.
Prior to joining Meyer Sound in 2010 as technical support specialist for digital products, Rauhoff accumulated 17 years of experience as a recording engineer, live sound mixer, programmer, and sound designer.
His credits include several Las Vegas resident Cirque du Soleil productions as well as Dragon’s Treasure, a multimedia spectacular at City of Dreams, Macau.
Robert Mele worked in the Cirque du Soleil audio department for 14 years. His credits include La Nouba in Orlando, the Corteo touring show, and two resident Las Vegas productions, CRISS ANGEL Believe and The Beatles LOVE.
Rauhoff and Mele are based at Meyer Sound’s Berkeley, CA headquarters. Bugg is based in Southern California.
