[The below comes to us from Randal Walker, PreSonus Artist and worldy drummer extraordinaire. He's charting on Steve Oliver's new CD "World Citizen!" His correspondance follows.]

Greetings all, just wanted to send a quick update. I recently played drums on smooth jazz artist Steve Oliver’s new CD World Citizen, which just peaked at number 11 on Amazon’s Smooth Jazz charts. On the hit track “Watching the World,” I recorded my parts at my home studio using the StudioLive 16.4.2 into Capture and edited it in PreSonus Studio One.

Back on the road with Craig Chaquico this week, first up is Walnut Creek CA then we fly out to Kona, Hawaii!

[Thanks Randal! Excited to see the track climb! Onward and upward...]

Balentine’s Day

July 27,2012

No, YOU try to come up with a better title.

Rick Balentine is a composer in Los Angeles. Rick has most recently been charged with composing for a new Steven Seagal TV Series, “True Justice.”  When he heard that Steven himself would dust off the ol’ Aikido if the show’s tunes weren’t up to snuff, Balentine chose Studio One Professional 2 and got the job done in the time it took Bruce Lee to throw this punch.

Hey! We’ve got a new video on our hands, hot on the presses from Summer NAMM! Rebecca Dirks of Premier Guitar came by with a camera guy and collared Nimbit’s Phil Antoniades, and grilled him about PreSonus’ recent acquisition of Nimbit… and what it means for Studio One users. Turns out it means quite a lot.

Thanks to Rebecca and PG for the hype!

Our VP of Sales and all-around Alpha Bro-Dog Rick Naqvi took some time out of his incredibly busy schedule to be subjected to the interview stylings of SonicState‘s Nick Batt. Agenda items on the docket included “You guys are on fire,”  “Sometimes Skype is hard,” and, of course, “Nimbit!”  Rick’s the first of three interviews, so jump on in!

[This kind e-mail and stylish video came to us from Anthony.]

Hi Ryan,

Thought you guys might be interested in this video.

We shot this live in the studio, and the band was having some trouble using the in-house headphone mixer for all four artists since they all sing, so the band set up their StudioLive and mixed not only their own headphone sends, but also the film crew’s cans as well! This was all done from their iPads and iPhones.

I sent this particular song because it’s got some of the best shots of the remote running from the drummer’s iPad ;) They’re really brilliant!

We recently had the chance to hang out for a while at Flux Studios for a little get-together where we could celebrate Studio One Professional 2. Here I was, all ready to write a great blog about it, and SonicScoop totally beat me to the punch. So, here’s a teaser, but then you should go read what they have to say about it.  From the SonicScoop blog:

“A remarkably intuitive and fast-moving DAW, Studio One 2 was at the center of live recording sessions held in FLUX’s inspiring Dangerous live room. Producer Fab Dupont manned the controls and artistJay Stolar laid down live tracks, which would later be the subject of a Q&A on the software.”

More after the jump!

Our friends at PureMix just published the first of many videos to come using Studio One. What sets these guys apart is that they teach real world production concepts, not just “how to xyz.” If you have yet to visit this site, now is a great time!

So, what’s PureMix all about, anyhow?

These days there is no way to learn record making from working professional since there are so few assisting positions left. In the past, an aspiring engineer or producer could watch and learn from someone more advanced for a few years and prepare for flying solo without burning their wings too early. That old mentor/disciple system is pretty much gone, and it’s a shame.

PureMix.net is a place to share the knowledge we, as successful professionals, acquired over time.pureMix.net content is produced in professional studios, professional and multiple awards engineers and teaches in depth: mixing, recording, producing and mastering.

Fab Dupont, the founder of PureMix has mixed or produced tracks for/with/featuring Jennifer Lopez, Freshlyground, Shakira, Les Nubians, Kirk Whalum, Nat King Cole, and a slew of other artists.

The platform is a streaming website that offers lessons purchased by the unit, or all-access subscriptions. Our users can download the audio files from the session that we use in order to try and practice at home. There is also a high-end and private forum for our subscribers where we they can share their thoughts and ask for thorough counseling.
