How OWC’s ThunderBay 8 makes life Easier for Mixing Engineer to Paul McCartney, Aretha Franklin, John Mayer

Michael Brauer is one of the most respected names in the music business. Over the last 40 years, Brauer has served as mixing engineer on some of the biggest projects from artists like Paul McCartney, Aretha Franklin, John Mayer, Coldplay, and more.

But with all that star power and demand for his skill, Brauer had a problem: decades of work spread across a bunch of separate hard drives. Tired of sorting through them all, locating what he needed, and making sure the drive still actually worked, Brauer turned to the ThunderBay 8 from OWC. Now, with 64 TB of storage, Thunderbolt 3 speeds, SoftRAID RAID management software, and the benefit of one location for decades worth of hits, Brauer can rest easy. Check out the video below to see how he makes it all work.
