We recently received a kind e-mail from Mike Donahue. Mike’s a 20-year session drumming veteran from the NY/NJ area. He’s an instructor and clinician who specializes in musical motivational presentations for school kids. He’s labeled this endeavor “Rhythms for a Cause,” and he’s chosen the PreSonus StudioLive 16.4.2 for his presentations. His e-mail follows:
Along with in-store charity drum clinics where I focus on teaching kids how to achieve their their goals and share my life stories with them as proof it can happen. I use music not just to entertain, but I also harness its power to teach them how I got where I am by talking about the legwork and dedication needed to make things happen. I also do in-store charity drum clinics.
I was introduced to your StudioLive 16.4.2 system and fell in love with it. Wow, what a breath of fresh air for the artist/user. When audience members get a chance to take a look at my drum kit and electronics, the StudioLive is definitely the topic of discussion. I’m a drummer, not an audio engineer, so the simplicity of the StudioLive in a live application for me was a revelation. The quality of sound I’m able to generate between my drum mixes, the board, and finally the PA system is second to none. I’ve spent way too much time in the past not only trying to figure out other boards, but trying to achieve a seemingly unreachable sound. Artists notice all the little things that get overlooked, whether that be sound quality, effects or the overall user experience. PreSonus did and continues to do an outstanding job delivering simplicity and near perfection to their end users.
