Good ol’ Jake Owen. Shortly before his appearance at the BMI Summer Block Party to celebrate his hit, Beachin’, Jake landed an interview at the Greek Theatre with none other with Larry King, the man who invented interviews, way back in 1437. Check out the video below to get a bit of backstory on Jake’s formative years and get some of his stories from the road.   While it’s hard to look past Jake’s perfect teeth and rugged heartthrobby-ness, try. Racked in the back you’ll find a bevy of familiar, handsome PreSonus gear.

Anything back there you recognize? If so, what? VIDEO SCAVENGER HUNT! (Fun fact: you can also conduct analog scavenger hunts while beachin‘.) All that gear is currently on the road with Jake, allowing him to record while on the road, mobile-studio style. steadyb and Rachel have been on working with the Jake Owen team at the above-mentioned BMI show, along with the Morris Sound and Light crew. All of them are great people to both work and be stuck in a bus with. 

Larry King isn’t the only one who’s taken notice of Jake. Here’s a writeup of the concert from a little magazine called “Rolling Stone.”

[This just in from Art Chaiyasothi, who has set up his new recording studio using PreSonus gear—and only PreSonus gear!]

I designed and built this recording studio by myself. I need to use only PreSonus equipment in this studio, for customer training, workshop, Capture training, YouTube video reviews, and for marketing. The studio is located on 3rd floor at my office. It includes:

unnamed-1The Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps won their 16th World Championship on Saturday with a record-breaking score of 99.65—the highest in the history of the competition! 

The PreSonus family is extremely proud of the organization, and we have the utmost respect for the members and staff who worked tirelessly all summer and kept improving until the very end. Congrats!

Check out this video of the Blue Devils doing what they do best with the support of the PreSonus StudioLive AI mixers and loudspeakers.

unnamedWell, this is a refreshing a change of pace from the typical Artist-of-the-Week. Up this time around is Drum Corp International, AKA DCI to those in-the-know, which now includes you.

Were this the usual singer/songwriter or rock band, this is the part where I would talk about where they are from, or their musical influences, or key band members. But how do I write about an organization made up of multiple bands, comprised of talented folks from all over the world?

I can’t, except to say that contemporary drum corp is the torchbearer for a richly storied tradition with origins in American and Canadian military history that goes back to the first world war, with competitive circuits really coming into their own by the 1960s.

Drum Corps International formed in 1972, and is the non-profit governing body for junior (under-21) drum and bugle corps in the US and Canada.

Over at the DCI Nimbit store, once can download a metric tonne of live competition performances from prestigious venues like the Alamodome and University of Akron’s InfoCision Stadium. Recordings contain championship performances from some of DCIs brightest and boldest. You can also grab a DCI hoodie or a DCI SNOWFLAKE CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT, just in time for… September?

Last but not least, you can get DVD and Blu-ray recordings of the 2013 and 2012 world championships, as well as the cutting-edge DCI Essentials collection, which includes top performances from DCI performances of yesteryear; up-converted to HD with a 5.1 audio mix. DVD is a great way to go, as drum corp is a highly visual medium.

Incidentally, PreSonus is a proud sponsor of DCI wunderkind The Blue Devils, who recently took first place at the DCI annual championship. Not only did they win, but they got the highest score ever in the history of DCI competition—a 99.65. They’ve been using PreSonus StudioLive AI Mixers and Loudspeakers in their performances for a little under a year, now, and we’re proud to have been a part of their prestigious victory. Check out a detailed overview of their set up at: musiced.presonus.com/fieldaudio

Fonz 2[This just in from Fonz, who recently lucked out and took home a PreSonus RC 500 from the Potluck Recording Conference (formerly Tape Op Con) giveaway! We've had a little hand in Potluck since 2004 or so, and this year a lucky winner got an RC 500!]
Hey guys, let me start by thanking you for your generosity! The PreSonus RC 500 will be cared for like a family member, but worked like a mule!
Potluck Audio Conference is a meeting of the minds where vendors, musicians, engineers, producers, fans of audio, and/or anyone else with a set of ears can travel to Tucson, Arizona in 100+ degree weather to share ideas, techniques, and many other valuable aspects of their respective industries. Craig Schumacher from WaveLab Studios is the guy to thank for this amazing event. Craig Schumacher is also an instructor at Scottsdale Community College, which happens to be two hours away from his residence and studio in Tucson. How and where he finds time to teach us is still a mystery, as he is constantly pulled in at least three directions at any given time. The guy is a blessing to us all!
This year Craig asked me to attend the event as a participant in a panel sponsored and engineered by Sweetwater’s very own Mike Pinotte and Austin Moss. The guys used one of the songs I created and had me track a verse to use in their Vocal Recording panel. It was a great experience, needless to say.
Currently I am a student at Scottsdale Community College. The degrees I’m acquiring are in Supply Chain Management and another in Audio Production. This doesn’t leave me much time for work, so the last year was a little rough as I had to quit my job and focus on school. As a result of the sacrifice, something VERY cool happened; my mixes started to get better, and people started to give me money to make their recording sound better.
Once again, I’d like to thank you for your kindness. Your company and the awesome gear you create are now a part of our collective efforts to keep the music alive!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
Alfonso Gutierrez (my Mama and my friends call me Fonz)

You’ve proven your status as my target demographic by clicking the link that got you to this blog.

How did I know that? Well, you’re here, and that means you’re an online sort of musician. As such, I thought you’d like to know that Carl recently set up one heckuva handsome PreSonus-branded online storefront over on Amazon.com, where you can shop for all things PreSonus, and no things anybody else.

Click around. Read reviews. Get yourself some new Eris monitors—they, in particular, are killin‘ it over there, with a review score average of 5/5 from no less than 27 reviews.

Of course, if you’re of the old-skool mindset to hear/play with something before you buy it, you can always haul your true-analog butt to a local dealer that won’t deliver your new FireStudio Mobile via drone.

John Mlynczak, PreSonus Education Market Manager, is is the kind of guy who leads by example. He recently produced this incredible nine-part video series focusing on using the AudioBox Studio, AudioBox Stereo, or AudioBox Music Creation Suite with a pair of Eris studio monitors to make practicing at home more efficient. Consider these tips “best practices” for your practices. Feel free to share your success or any new ideas!

While John’s videos were designed for music educators, fact is these tips are applicable to darn near anyone who wants to get some music made. If you’re a kid just starting out, or a home-recording vet just looking to dust off the rudiments, chances are you’ll find something of value here.
