Optimal Audio appoints Al McKinna

Manufacturer Optimal Audio has announced the appointment of Al McKinna as head of product.

A Sound Technology graduate of LIPA, McKinna joins after 15 years at Avid, where he spent three years in sales and 12 in product management. As director of product management for live sound, McKinna led the business strategy and product development of Avid’s Venue brand of digital live audio production systems, including Venue | S3L, the Venue | S6L unified platform, and the accompanying Venue software, overseeing 30 major product releases and achieving two patents during this time.

Most recently as director of audio hardware at Avid, he led product management for Pro Tools systems, control surfaces and live sound.

McKinna will be responsible for creating a future product development strategy for Optimal Audio that aligns with, and remains true to, the brand’s original vision for removing the often unnecessarily complex nature of commercial audio.
