Ross Pallone


A sound mind

Since 1976, Ross Pallone’s passion for live mixing and studio engineering has made an imprint on the musical landscape for some of the biggest names in the business.  His big break came in the early 80’s when he met Michael McDonald while engineering Amy Holland’s debut album “On Your Every Word.” This meeting evolved into a long term relationship with McDonald, but it also set his career in motion with engineering albums and providing live mixing for hundreds of artists, including Alan Parsons, Alice Cooper, Ambrosia, Barbara Streisand, Chaka Khan, Christopher Cross, David Foster, David Pack, Diana Ross, Earth, Wind & Fire, Elton John, Dean Martin, Donna Summer, Gladys Knight, James Newton Howard, Manhattan Transfer, Michael Jackson, and Prince, among many others.  Here to talk about the behind-the-scenes world of studio engineering and live mixing is Ross Pallone.
