Here’s my first time taking the StudioLive console out to a gig. My goal was to create several different monitor mixes and mix live from the stage with it. Despite a few problems with a late drummer and ground hum with the Keyboard channel, we pulled off the gig in style. The difference in fidelity was huge! The band commented on how much easier it was for them to hear on stage. Having the gate set as a downward expander on the vocals really helped to get the monitors loud and clear. On the next blog, I’ll try recording using Capture. Seeya!
Here’s my first demo with the StudioLive 1642 to one of our dealers in Pensacola, All Pro Sound. (This was shot on my birthday, October 28. Kind of a drag to be working on your birthday. But at least we got to eat sushi that night in Pensacola.) As we get going through the next several weeks, I’ll be doing more detailed demo’s for you folks in my studio. But hopefully this will serve as a good overview of the main features.
We are now starting our second phase of beta testing for the new StudioLive mixer. Over the next few weeks I hope to put it through some paces and let you all see how it works. I’ll be bringing it to gigs with my band as well as doing some recordings in my studio and also doing some shootouts with other mixers to see how it holds out. Feel free to ask questions and I’ll do my best to answer them as quickly as possible. Thanks!!
