Hey there, we just wrapped up a couple videos on the new StudioLive AI digital mixers. In these, Rick shows you how to set up a monitor mix or aux mix on the StudioLive. This is great for setting up floor wedge monitors or headphone mixes. Video #2 showcases how you can set up your levels. It’s easy!

VP of Sales Rick Naqvi also serves as both the face and mouth of PreSonus. Rick’s upbringing was a little less musical than other PreSonus regulars—here he is depicted moments before destroying a 1983 Les Paul Studio in a fit of fructuse-driven pre-teen rage.
Rick’s smashy habits were a path to success, as these humble beginnings lead to a three-year stint as pinch-hitting guitar smasher for KISS during the “No Peter Criss, No Ace Frehely, and No Makeup” era from 1987-1990.
Rick’s age is difficult to calculate here, as the exact date this photo was taken remains unclear and is probably lost to history.
PreSonus VP of Sales and PreSonus lifer Rick Naqvi recently had the opportunity to sit down with überproducer Khaliq Glover. Khaliq has licence to drop names like Prince, Justin Timberlake, Herbie Hancock, John Mayer, Christina Aguilera, Stevie Wonder, Santana, Sting, Brian Eno, Annie Lennox, Smokey Robinson, Jeffrey Osborne, B2K, Narada Michael Walden, Kenny Lattimore, and Faith Evans. He was also one of the many engineers to participate on 1985’s ”We Are The World” project. The man’s the real-deal, and we’re flattered that he converted to Studio One, thanks to a little help from Teddy Riley.
