[This just in from Randal Walker of 22 Media Productions, who recently used his StudioLive to record David Ellefson, bassist of Megadeth, for the audiobook narration of his autobiography, "My Life With Deth."]
This is our third book project. The first was David’s book Unsung, then we did the audio version of his book Making Music Your Business. We also did a movie called Battlefield of the Mind that David narrated.
All three of these projects were tracked using a Studiolive 16.4.2 AI.
Being a PreSonus user, I was excited to put the new AI board to use, and David’s latest project was the perfect chance to do so.
We recorded straight into StudioOne Professional 2 ,and the final project was mastered in Studio One as well.
My reason for using the StudioLive AI? Ease of use, and it s sounds great. Very clean-sounding.
The audiobook version of My life with Deth should be coming out by end of June.

If you’re using one of the classic StudioLive mixers or the new AI mixers, you will find something of value as the book covers both!

You’ll also find info on getting the most out of using your StudioLive with external devices like your laptop and iPhone, feedback elimination, remote iPad control, and recording your shows.
