The Music Engineering & Technology Alliance (METAlliance) was created by renowned music producers and recording engineers Chuck Ainlay, Ed Cherney, Frank Filipetti, George Massenburg, Phil Ramone, Elliot Scheiner, and Al Schmitt. The executive team has created a supportive network and collaborative community in which producers, engineers and audio technology manufacturers work together to ensure the highest standards of audio production and delivery through developing consumer formats.

METAlliance’s founders are active as educators in the professional audio community, spearheading seminars and regularly speaking at industry events at both international and regional levels. Now the group is in position to expand their activities throughout the industry in periodicals, published technical papers, Internet podcasts, and in widely disseminated broadcasts.

The members of METAlliance are champions for progress in a business that has been hammered by piracy and the parallel decline in audio quality. METAlliance strives to secure the art of music through recording technology that can best deliver the music in all its many modern forms.

METAlliance embodies the group’s passionate commitment to quality in the arts and science of recording. “The highest quality audio to have ever been produced for mass consumption is currently available to all lovers of music – yet many channels of delivery are deteriorating and falling well short of what’s possible,” explains METAlliance cofounder and multi-Grammy winner Frank Filipetti. “This is a crucial time in the history of recorded music and our goal is to draw attention to this crisis. We are a generation with the passion that truly appreciates a beautifully recorded work played back on a good sound system.”

As METAlliance founder Phil Ramone often says, “It’s about the music.”
