Lesle Lewis and the StudioLive 24.4.2

[This just in from Sudhin Prabhakar of Pro Musicals, our distributor in India!]

Lesle Lewis is one of India’s well known pop stars, being one part of the Colonial Cousins, a rock/pop act that took the country by storm in the 80s, and has continued their run for decades.

Lesle used the StudioLive 24.4.2 at a concert in Chennai which incorporated a live rock band and full compliment of Bollywood-style dancers.
Lesle chose the StudioLIve for its amazing ease of use, instantaneous setup time, and virtual sound check capability. He also is full of praise for the SMAART technology built in that is used to ring out the room in minutes and control feedback in a jiffy. He’s also able to set up his delay stacks to perfection with no guesswork.
Lesle says, “It’s always amazing to see as to how this compact mixer replaces racks and racks of processing gear and endless tangles of interconnect cables. The preamps sound musically sweet,  have loads of headroom, and I get a 24 channel recording at the end of the show with a single touch of a button.”

Sudhin Prabhakar

Presonus Studio Channel Review from SoundsAndGear

Thanks to SoundsAndGear for this great review!

 

Don’t Miss Bleep Blop, Steaming Live!

 

Do you like your music a little bit electronic? And a lot experimental? If so, this may be an event for you, and in case you can’t make it to MIT, you can check out the steam on April 13 at 8pm EST.


Ramon Castillo, who leads the event, says:

“We’re using the StudioLive 16.0.2 as a super flexible interface. We’ve got a chain of moogerfoogers, piano, violin, iPad, Dave Smith Tetra, Mbira and more all hooked into the mixer. Some processing is done using a Mac running Ableton Live, and the rest is done with the MoogerFoogers and the iPad.”

“The routing varies greatly between each piece do we take heavy advantage of scene programming. Sound checks couldn’t be done without SL remote on the iPad.”

“I may try to get some good video of our setup on our concert on the 20th. I haven’t begun to promote that show yet, but the 1602 will be used in much the same way.”

Briana Tyson ADL 700 / ADL 600 Stems Available for Download via SoundCloud

Rick and the RACK OF DOOM

Hey there! I got something for ya. Here’s a pile of 30-second tracks from the sessions we did recently with Briana Tyson. Every signal on this recording was recorded direct via an ADL 700 or ADL 600 preamp. Because we could.

No other processors were used in these recordings. The guitars were recorded with Shure SM57s and Royer R-121s, and the bass was ran direct into an ADL 700. The stereo sources—keys, drum overheads, and two room mics were ran through the ADL 600s.

Here’s the mic list for this session:

Kick (Shure Beta 52)
Snare (Shure SM57)
Hi Tom (Sennheiser 421)
Low Tom (Sennheiser 421)
Stereo Overheads (Neumann K184’s)
Stereo Room Mics (AudioTechica 4080)
Bass Guitar (Direct)
Electric Guitar (SM 57)
Electric Guitar (Royer 121)
Female Vocal (Brauner VM1)
Keyboard (Yamaha P100 direct)

These tracks are available via SoundCloud for download. Help yourself to them and do with them what you will. Mix ’em up! Or down.

We hope you think they sound as amazing as we do.

Here’s the tracks:
