World Renowned Guitarist Relies On Thunderbolt 2 Dock for Studio Connections


Paul Pesco knows how important connections can be – both inside and outside of the studio.

The talented guitarist/singer-songwriter/composer/producer has made a name for himself in the industry working with superstars such as Madonna, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston. But it was through his early work with the innovative techno funk group, The System, that he was able to catch the eye of the successful group Hall & Oates with whom he would develop a long relationship. From there Pesco was able to make the connections with some of the biggest names in pop music.

But equally important for Pesco is the hard work and connections made behind the scenes and inside the studio. And when it comes to those connections, Pesco puts his faith in the OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock. Pesco relies on the Thunderbolt 2 Dock throughout the recording process and to connect his hardware that he’s used throughout his career.

“I love my OWC Thunderbolt 2 dock. It’s a way for my new Mac to connect to my old drives and everything that I use. It is definitely a bridge to my old set up – uninterrupted,” Pesco said. 

paulpesco-owc-postThe Thunderbolt 2 Dock makes the perfect studio companion for musicians looking to connect both new and legacy hardware with plug and play capabilities.

“The Thunderbolt 2 dock is not just a convenience- it’s a necessity. It is the center point of my studio. The Thunderbolt 2 dock is connected to everything! It allows me to be reverse compatible to my old world. I can now combine all the drives for the many tracks that I have worked on as a writer. I can now instantly connect to them and that is invaluable.”

With just one Thunderbolt cable, artists like Pesco are able to connect up to five USB 3.0 devices, Gigabit Ethernet, a FireWire device, HDMI, audio in, and audio out. Capable of an 20 Gbps of throughput, the OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock utilizes this bandwidth to eliminate data bottlenecks, and effortlessly supports direct connection of up to ten devices, as well as daisy-chaining five additional Thunderbolt devices.
