I wanted to let you know that I finished my CD “Peanut Butter Fudge,” and it will be released digitally May 29th through Favored Nations
. It’s a remake of the first Vanilla Fudge record, with a bluesy vibe.
This is my first CD done totally with PreSonus Studio One 2
from top-to-bottom. All drums by Frankie Banali
and the rest is me. I sang some of the songs and a few are instrumental. I wanted you to know how pleased I am with the results. From recording to mixing to mastering, it all worked perfectly and the sound is beyond beyond!
The only Presonus gear I have is the software, but that’s why I’m so happy with the CD. I used the Dual Pan
plugin everywhere! That makes it incredibly easy for me to place things just where I need them. Using Pipeline
for connecting to external gear is perfect. Parallel compression is also made simple in Studio One, and that’s something I do a lot
. My guitars are compressed with Studio One’s compressor at 3:1 with a slow release to hold it in position. The biggest assets are Studio One’s ease of use and sound quality. It makes working fun again like the old days, but easier! I can work at break neck speed and still have fun!
All the best,
