Forward Thinking Audio Gear from Crane Song and Dave Hill Designs.
Crane Song Ltd. is about designing and building the highest quality audio hardware and software possible. The products include A/D and D/A converters, Equalizers, Preamps, Compressors, Monitor Controllers, and plug-ins for PT. The designs range from discrete class A electronics to dsp.
The Philosophy is to make musically sounding gear and plug-ins that solve problems in the recording environment. The products very flexible, by changing a control the sound of the device can go from very clean to very colored while remaining musical. In 2011 Dave Hill Designs was lunched to provide products that are digitally controlled analog, DHD follows the same philosophy of building the highest quality musical signal processing devices possible.
Some designs for other companies include Avid’s HEAT plug-in, ATR Service Company’s variable speed control and the ARIA discrete record - play tape machine electronics. In addition there is on-going design work for several other companies, both the US and the UK. New designs for both Crane Song and Dave Hill Designs are always being worked on.

Hailing from the Midwestern United States, Liz Teutsch grew up in a home saturated with music, from her parents’ Beatles records to her multi-instrumentalist grandmother’s square-dance fiddling. This early exposure led her through studies in violin, piano, cello, percussion, drum set, bass and guitar, and eventually led her to Berklee College of Music’s Boston campus where she majored in Music Production and Engineering. Her studies in Boston led to a plethora of collaborative, creative ventures in music production, sound for visual media, and of course, teaching.
Liz feels extremely fortunate that she is now able to fuse two of her passions – music and education – at Berklee’s campus in Valencia, Spain, where she has worked and taught since 2013. In the classroom, Teutsch works to make music technology accessible to all, recognizing that these tools can also lead to unexpected creative breakthroughs. “There are some facets of technology that all students – soon to be professionals – must understand. However, these technology tools can also be used creatively, and it is our students’ explorations and experimentations with them that will continue to propel the music industry forward for many years to come.”
An Associate Professor and the Director of Academic Technology, Teutsch oversees the Berklee Valencia campus’s technology services and facilities, teaches courses in music production and technology, chairs the Music Technology Minor, and advises students in the Music Production, Technology and Innovation Master's Program. Liz is an active member of the Audio Engineering Society, the faculty advisor of the Berklee Valencia AES Student Section, and is currently serving a 2-year post as the AES Vice President of the Southern Europe Region.
Formerly the Director of Audio Production at Boston University's Center for Digital Imaging Arts, Liz was based in Boston for over 10 years where she worked as an educator, technician, and tracking and mix engineer for music and multimedia. She is a graduate of Dartmouth College and Berklee College of Music.
