John Hanti founded Studios, Systems, and Transport in Manhattan in 1983, to serve the touring needs of British post-punk bands making their first appearances in the States.

Early success led SST to New Jersey later in the decade, where Hanti eventually settled the business in its current Weehawken location. The company expanded from backline into full-service recording, rehearsal, and touring services, hosting some of the world’s most celebrated artists.

A serious auto accident in 2012, followed a month later by the devastation of Superstorm Sandy, interrupted the company’s momentum for several years. Today, SST is fully rebuilt and fully operational. Hanti, too, is recovered and is again at the helm of what has become one of the industry’s most prestigious and successful industry service providers.

SST Studio Manager Billy Perez is an NYC-based audio engineer and systems technician. Billy has been with SST Studios and Backline since 2011 serving as a studio
liaison to many of the worlds leading touring artists and has aided in pre tour production for legendary acts such as Black Sabbath, The Rolling Stones, Jeff Beck, John Fogerty, The Misfits, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, to name just a few. Billy maintains SST’s large inventory of backline and audio equipment as well as a staff of backline technicians both
in house and on the road.

The SST production facility is home to 6 recording studios, a production sound stage, a choreography studio and an equipment rentals warehouse.

"I've relied on JFR and dBm for microphone and outboard rentals for years. I know I can rest assured that the quality of the equipment is exactly what I expect. I've also used dBm's repair department for myself and my clients. The turnaround time and efficiency of repairs is second to none.” - Billy Perez

Billy and the team at SST pride themselves at their ability to adapt to the ever-changing marketplace of professional touring. Billy credits SST’s owner John Hanti as a mentor
who continues to instill high values in service and client care to the SST staff.

The Pro-Sound Family is proud to have SST as their June Client of the Month!

Just completed another hugely successful 'Mixing for Musicals' training course. Well done Mike Thacker (far right) and the team.

Mixing for Musicals is far, far more than just another "this is how a mixing desk works" workshop - Mixing for Musicals participant's are taken through every stage of the process from the rehearsal room to setting up a desk in its base state, including the theory, introduction to why line-by-line mixing is so important, and what happens when you don't do it.

The students experience all the essential tasks associated with sound operating excellence, from basic mixing theory to working with the latest digital mixing technology.

SMPTE Time Code, standardized as SMPTE ST 12, was originally defined in the 1970s and, although there have been many updates and enhancements, the fundamental attributes remain unchanged. ST 12 is key to electronic video editing, and has found application in many other fields and industries.

URGENT INDEED!!

Urgent: TAX CREDIT INFORMATION

Dear Brothers and Sisters:
As you may have heard, Governor Cuomo did not allocate funding for the film tax credit program. As you should know, without the film tax credit most of our jobs will be lost. Please be sure to take the time to tell your ELECTED officials in the NY State Senate and Assembly how important these credits are to you and your family. I cannot stress the importance of making these calls. Call as often as you can.
The jobs we save will be our own!

Please use the link below to find your representatives and let them know how important this legislation is to thousands of New Yorkers who work in the film industry as well as to the health of the state’s economy:
