Well, her name is Linzy Rae. Linzy and her band, The Anchor, are the masterminds behind the viral video YouTube series “Metal Kitchen.” With over 1.3 million views on their first video, and 35K followers on Facebook, they caught our eye–and ear.
Check out her first video “The Ghost Inside makes Shepherd’s Pie” from December 2015.
“The Ghost Inside makes Shepherd’s Pie” from December 2015.
Linzey is the lead vocalist for The Anchor, a Melodic Metalcore band based in Denver, CO. They’re also big fans of PreSonus so we figured we could trade them an interview for some Cajun recipes. They agreed and everyone wins!
The band started out with an Audiobox USB 2X2 with a free version of Studio One 2 Artist. We eventually upgraded to the producer version because we loved it so much. Now we have Studio One 3 Producer.
We have used Studio One Pro for our first two EPs in my band, The Anchor. We have used Studio one for our entire YouTube channel as well. It has worked great in our home studio.
We originally used it because we needed a USB interface. We were told the Presonus Audiobox 2X2 would be a great start! It came with Studio one Artist and we loved it because of its user friendliness. Also the all the tutorials have been extremely helpful.
We love it’s user friendliness, compatibility with vst’s and plugins. It also comes with great mixing tools as well as the Project Page is such help with some post mixing/mastering things.
The project page is particularly helpful in putting final touches on songs.
Go watch the tutorials and Studio One Experts! It is so helpful!
Studio One 3 is a great expansion to the already awesome Studio One 2 we had previously. We will never switch, and can’t wait to see what the future holds for PreSonus.
I started uploading some covers to YouTube about a year ago. Now we consistently upload covers on a weekly or biweekly basis. We have videos such as Metal Kitchen, Scream It Like A Girl, and Pop Goes Metal.
We were in the studio and someone was going to order Chinese food for dinner. While I was in the recording booth, they asked me what I wanted to eat and I screamed “crab cheese wantons,” which created a running joke. Afterwards, our friend made a joke saying that I could write a recipe into one of our songs and people wouldn’t know the difference (Since the common opinion of metal music is that you can’t understand what the vocalist is saying). Then the idea sort of grew from there.
The video completely caught us off guard it was amazing and also scary at the same time. We have never had so much attention on us all at once!
We just released a Metal Kitchen about making Black Bean Burgers featuring Miss May I’s song, IHE. For the next metal kitchen we are thinking about making Tacos to an All That Remains songs. Metal Kitchens format probably won’t change that much but we have a lot of other cool ideas that we can’t wait to try out!
Try out Studio One for free like these guys did HERE! Who knows, you may be the next YouTube sensation! Stranger things have happened…

Now’s your chance to save 30% on the Brass Bundle for Notion—down from the usual price of $69.99. There’s a whole lotta brass for your buck in here—this world-class sample pack was recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios. You get seven instruments in the bundle, including:
What really sets the Brass Bundle (and other Notion Expansions) apart from other sample sets is the array of techniques available per instrument—these add an element of realism and expression that can’t be found in lesser sample packs. These performance techniques include:
Only in June 2016—we’re offering 30% off of any item in the entire line of eBass Add-ons for Studio One 3. These recordings of a real-deal 1970s P-bass have been recorded in immaculate detail. Make no mistake—this isn’t a one-sound-per-MIDI note sample pack like that SoundFont from 1998 that you found on some “Free samples” website. There is a LOT for you to work with here—the packs include many different right-hand dynamics, left hand positions, hammer-ons, slides, dead notes and harmonics. There’s also a bevy of scripting at hand here, including valuable presets for you keyboardists out there who want to emulate bass playing via MIDI. Last but not least, each pack includes Musicloops in a variety of styles, including MIDI note data and effects chains per Musicloop.
There are four packs in the e-Bass collection: Vintage Finger, Vintage Pick, Classic Finger, and Classic Pick. They’re also available in an all-in-one combo pack.
For more details on the incredible depth of the eBass collection, click here—but here’s a taste:
“We used a Millenia TD-1 tube channel for the Vintage Bass instruments, and an Avalon DI preamp for the Classic Bass. We also recorded the bass via an Ampeg SVT top with 112 speaker, just as a sound reference. However, we ended up using only the DI signals for our eBass instruments. The DI signal provides great flexibility for additional processing with amp simulators and EQ, so the reference amp recording was a tremendous help when we designed the Instrument+FX presets—we could always compare them to the real thing. Strings were medium 045-105 round-wound for the classic and the same gauge flat-wound strings for the vintage. The pickup set was the original from 1975.”
The eBass collection is available for all editions of Studio One 3: Artist, Professional, and Prime, and can be purchased on shop.presonus.com or directly from inside Studio One.
Are you the sort of singer/songwriter who wants an AudioBox that matches that nice brushed aluminum look of your laptop perfectly? Look no farther than the AudioBox iOne Platinum—a limited-edition run of our most portable of portable interfaces. And ONLY in June of 2016, these gorgeous li’l units are down from $99 to $69.
The AudioBox iOne allows you directly record an instrument of choice and a single XLR microphone simultaneously, which is what makes ideal for the singing guitarist crowd. Just connect your guitar to the 1/4″ input on the front, your mic to the XLR port on the front, and connect the AudioBox to your computer via USB. Using the included Studio One 3 Artist software, you’ll be up and running and demoing your next (or first) hit in a matter of minutes.
And to keep things extra-portable, you can also record via the iOne to your iPad running the included Capture Duo software. Capture files can be wirelessly transmitted to your main workstation and opened up for editing in Studio One. All told, everything you need to record a song will fit in a shoebox.
Not that we recommend keeping it in a shoebox. Be nice to it, it’s shiny.
Goes to show that you just can’t keep a good promo down. Due to popular demand, we’ve extended our existing StudioLive RM mixer rebates until August 31. We’re offering up to 17% off of the RM-series StudioLive mixers. That’s $200 in the USA, but exact amounts will vary regionally.
If you haven’t checked in on the RMs in a while, it’s worth noting that The RM-series mixers recently had cascading support added in the most recent firmware update, allowing you to get build a 64-channel mixing powerhouse. If that’s appealing to you, it’s right for you to know that this is not a one-per-customer discount offer. And if you own a StudioLive AI console mixer, you’re likely interested in the RM’s new stagebox mode.
But don’t take it from us… here’s what Front of House had to say about it, in part:
“Clearly there’s a lot here and I could spend the next 20 pages getting deeper into the possibilities of this versatile system. But for me, the bottom line here is that the RM mixers are affordable, with a solid build, great sound and an overflowing feature set with more to come, such as AVB integration. Unfortunately, my experience with this system left me with a seemingly incurable addiction for multi-touch, and it’s hard to break that habit.”
