It’s been a long road since Bryce Avary first started putting out music under the name The Rocket Summer 16 years ago. With roots in pop and alt-rock, Avary showcases his talent by writing, producing and playing instruments on all 6 of his albums. The Rocket Summer is currently on tour for their newest record Zoetic which was released in February. We recently caught up with him to see how the tour was going and how the RM32AI Mixer was working for them.
Avary’s assembled a killer live band to take his songs on the road! They’re using the RM32AI Mixer for their in ear monitoring system and mixing everything on their own. Hear more of Avary’s thoughts in the video below.
The RM32AI is obviously a perfect fit for The Rocket Summer and it may be just what you’re missing. All summer long (and then some) select dealers in the USA are offering discounts of Kozmic proportions on StudioLive mixers – See more HERE!
Quick question–what do the Beatles, Pink Floyd and this Classical Guitar sample for Notion have in common? Answer–they were all recorded at the historic Abbey Road Studios in London, England! You officially learned something today.
The Classical Guitar samples were performed by Benjamin Verdery on a 1995 Greg Smallman strung with D’Addarios and let’s be honest—that just sounds awesome. We’re currently featuring the Classical Guitar for Notion for 30% off until May 31, 2016!
These samples include variations for open strings, hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, and left-hand and right-hand fingering control and can be used with Notion version 4 or later and Progression 3 or later.
