Rich Macar came to New York with a Synclavier and started solving creative problems on tight schedules and tight budgets – for projects like Steven King’s Maximum Overdrive and the haunting music-box scene in Francis Ford Coppola’s Peggy Sue Got Married.


That was 1985 at Sound One NY.


Because Rich could already see the digital future – the highest quality sound at the fastest pace – he was one of the first NYC digital sound innovators.


So by 1986 he had founded Buttons Sound.
