Ryan Landry is PreSonus’ Inside Sales Lead and Magisterial Overseer of Cookie Distribution. When not at the office, Ryan lives the life of a multi-talented drummer/poet; a renaissance man who lives on the razor’s edge between heartbeats and spreadsheets.
Ryan’s been with us for a few years now and we’re not quite sure what we would do without cookies.
My co-workers. I work with some truly incredible people.
But who’s your favorite?
Everyone is my favorite equally. (Hope my boss sees this)
What was the first 8 track, cassette, CD, digital download you purchased?
Unfortunately, I never saw the light of day for 8 tracks or cassettes. The first CD that I can remember buying is “Broken Boy Soldies” by The Raconteurs.
Who’s your go to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?
This Will Destroy You. Specifically, their self-titled album.
What do you love about the Studio 192?
The quality of sound, the remote preamps, and the mixer in UC Surface. Being a DIY bedroom drummer, it’s the perfect tool for me to get high-fidelity recordings at home. I keep my drums set up in one room and my computer is located in another room. From my iPad, I can set my preamp levels, create a monitor mix, and control Studio One 3 from the Studio One Remote App all without ever having to leave my drums. It’s the dream piece of gear for a lazy drummer like me.
What other products do you have?
A pair of Eris E8’s, a pair of Eris E4.5’s, a pair of Ceres 4.5’s, a Monitor Station, an AudioBox iTwo, an HP2, an HP4, and Studio One 3.
Tell us about the coolest thing you’ve done with PreSonus.
Meeting Mutemath! I’ve been a big fan of them for a couple of years now and I was excited to learn when they started using our mixers on their Vitals tour. They had an off day on tour and came by the office to pick up some more gear; I got a chance to meet the guys and hang out for a bit.
What are you currently working on? What’s next for you?
Outside of work? My band, Spyglass, is working on finishing our debut album that’s going to be released this summer.
Got any tips for working with the interface?
Use it with Studio One 3 for the best experience, hands down. The Z-Mix feature will allow you to do zero-latency monitoring within Studio One 3.
