UA Universe - This Month at Universal Audio
Hi, welcome to the new "UA Universe" column in the WebZine. This is a monthly roundup of Universal Audio News including comments from reviews, forums, emails, and calls we receive from both our loyal UA users and people new to UA. You will also still find our Employee Feature here so you can get to know the folks at UA a little better. If you don't have time to keep on top of the media overload, this column is the fast track to what's being said on the street.
Rey Rivera, UA's First Employee
Before I went back to school, I was an automobile mechanic specializing in electronic engine controls. At the time what I really wanted to do was design electronic engine controls.
We here at UA are glad he took the path to audio.
It seems having the distinction of being the first employee has its hardships as well as its glories. Rey is the wearer of many a hat; Software Engineer, Project Leader, System Administrator, IT man, Tester, and most recently TDM coder. Rey plays as hard as he works. He enjoys surfing, (he was strapping his board to the roof of his surf-mobile at 2 in the afternoon as I tried to grab him for this interview) soccer, weightlifting and babe-watching.
