Fonz Wins an RC-500 at Potluck Recording Conference
[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!
