Bill Sage at Pro Media UltraSound on the StudioLive

Hey PreSonus – 

I used to be a touring and recording engineer. I now design and sell AV systems. I’m a busy guy, with a full-time sales job and a marriage.  I mostly do sound for friends’ bands or benefits for charities.

Here are some reasons I am liking Studio One and the StudioLive 16.0.2. I had the opportunity to use one for a benefit a few months ago.

Running Universal Control on my Apple Powerbook, I was able to quickly get set up and my mix together in a matter of minutes. I didn’t even read the manual, and it worked flawlessly—and more importantly, it sounded great!

After the gig, I read the manual… and I had no idea that the StudioLive 16.0.2 even had iPad control, which got me even more curious. I took the plunge and bought the 16.0.2.

I also put the band back together. I am playing bass and singing, the other guys are not engineers so  I am keeping busy!  I use the 16.0.2 and Capture to record basic tracks or rehearsals. Capture is great because I only have to press Record and Stop. Capture lets me concentrate on playing, instead of engineering.

Once home from rehearsal, I import the files into Studio One. Again, it is really simple to get good-sounding tracks. The software is really intuitive, so once again I didn’t read the manual much, but I did find the videos on the internet really helpful.

I have had the “big three” recording softwares at one time or another. This by far is the simplest, most intuitive mixer and software that I have ever used.

I would highly recommend the 16.0.2 and the Studio One Software to anyone.

Cheers!
