Startisan has taken the PreSonus StudioLive RM16AI on the road for their live shows, taking advantage of the unit’s digital inputs to incorporate sophisticated backing tracks and effects processing into their live shows. They can even run VSTs and virtual instruments live.
Using the same configuration, the band is also able to record all of their shows and rehearsals.
The result? Concerts that sound more like their records. Well, that, and ticket sales.
Another Louisiana original, Startisan’s sound is at once uplifting and arresting—definitely on the rock side of things, but also employing heavy synth and percussion elements that put them light years beyond their peers. Startisan is the second band in the world to tour with the StudioLive RM16AI, which has allowed them to bring complex multitrack arrangements to the stage—arrangements that not long ago were only possible in the studio.
Startisan performs on Saturday and Sunday at 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.
