What was the first 8 track, cassette, CD or digital download you purchased?
My first record was the first self-titled Kiss album in 1976. A few years later I got the first Van Halen album. I was around 8 or 9 years old and my parents scheduled a family vacation where we drove from Baton Rouge to Niagara Falls. I had a Sony Walkman back then. The only tape I had with me was Van Halen 1, and I listened to it for 42 hours straight (2,628 miles.)
Who’s your go to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?
Everyone has a side gig, what’s yours?
I play with a funk band called Phat Hat.
Got any tips for working with the Rack Mixer/StageBox?
Spend some money and get an awesome wireless router. They are not that much money for a great one and you will be happy. Here’s a link to the one I use with my band.
A pair of AIR12 Loudspeakers!

But if we had the option, doing what we love at the beach is high on our wish list. Somehow that’s just what Cory Davis, with 30A company based in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, has figured out how to do in his work at 30A Radio.
30A is a highway along Florida’s gulf coast offering visitors more than just a beach vacation. Fine dining, prefect sandy beaches, weekend farmers markets, bike trails… you’re not going to want to leave. It’s also where the Truman Show was filmed. You may have seen a bright blue bumper sticker when driving around town–it looks like this:
Davis is the Director of Sales for The 30A Company advertising department, and programs and manages 30A Radio. Davis recently got his hands on one of our AR12 Mixers and we wanted to hear how it was treating him and improving his workflow.

Versatile, customizable, and easy to transport. Oh, and the sound? It will blow you away.
For a limited time, if you buy any pair of matching ULT Loudspeakers we’ll throw in a few useful extras. This offer runs until October 31, 2016.
It’s pretty simple, really. Here are your options:
That’s nearly everything you need for a mobile PA setup! Everything except for a van to haul it in, anyhow.
This offer is available worldwide.
Get a StudioLive AI Loudspeaker of your choice delivered right to your door or place of business, including a form-fitting, fashionable dust cover that will keep them looking their best while locking in that new-speaker smell for some time.
Not sure why you should get a StudioLive AI over any other black box? Control and versatility, for starters. You can remotely EQ them to the venue via SL Room Control on your iPad. They’re equipped for wireless and wired communications over an Ethernet or Wi-Fi for control and tuning. You can also add the SL-Dante-SPK option card to create a Dante network and ditch your clunky, heavy analog snake in favor of lightweight CAT5e or CAT6 cables. Oh, and they’re loud. Imagine studio monitor quality (thanks in part to the coax drivers) at extraordinarily high volume.
But enough about us from us. Check out what Sound on Sound had to say about the StudioLive AI Loudspeakers:
“The StudioLive AI series of powered speakers represents something different from the norm for portable PA. The use of coaxial MF/HF drive units, abundant power output and serious helpings of onboard DSP make these interesting and appealing in their own right, but when teamed up with the Room Control application a whole new set of possibilities opens up, and brings ‘big rig’ functionality into the portable live-sound domain. I’ve been using them in isolation, but remember that they are part of an integrated product range, and the functionality can only increase in the future… There are systems that offer a similar level of remote DSP control, but they almost all reside in the high-end touring sector, rather than the compact PA market.”
Compact and lightweight, PreSonus AIR active loudspeakers provide a rich, extended low-end and natural high-frequency extension in an enclosure that will easily fit in the back seat of a small car. Backed by 1,200W of Class D/Class AB power and enhanced with easy-to-use digital tuning functions, AIR full-range systems give you all the power and tools you need for both mobile and installed sound. The series includes AIR10, AIR12, and AIR15 full-range systems and AIR15s and AIR18s subwoofers.
Here’s a look at the new AIR speakers from InfoComm!
For those of you in the USA wondering what Musikmesse is, think NAMM—but in Germany.
“Musikmesse in Frankfurt is the international trade fair for instruments, sheet music, production, and marketing.” It all starts this Thursday, April 7 and runs to Sunday, April 10.
At our booth, participants are invited to check out the gear, connect with us on social media, and enter to win one of five copies of Studio One Pro we’ll be giving away every day of Messe! To enter, participants must:
Setting up a new PA system in your venue? Get ahead of the curve by going Dante. With the SL-Dante-SPK option card, you can eliminate audio cabling and transfer uncompressed, low-latency digital audio and control data to and from StudioLive AI loudspeakers over relatively long distances and to multiple locations, using a standard Ethernet network. You’ll also be able to connect your loudspeakers to StudioLive AI console mixers and RM Rackmount mixers via Dante for unparalleled control and flexibility—and as your needs grow in the future, Dante will be ready for you.
Until June 30, 2016, you’ll get four (4!) SL-Dante-SPK option cards when you buy four StudioLive AI loudspeakers, including the 18sAI, 312AI, 328AI, and/or 315AI. That’s eight hundred dollars worth of option cards.
Do you already have a network in your venue? Does the idea of using lightweight CAT5 cable to connect your PA appeal to you? Do you hear where I’m going with this?
