[We decided it best to give some recognition to our more vocal advocates—and what better way than via a blog series?]
Who are you, where are you, and what do you do?
Hello, I am Eric Petersen, head writer and publisher of RUST Magazine which focuses on writing thorough reviews and doing interviews of emerging artists, mostly in the indie rock space. I’m also DJ Slack, and at my events I play a mix of the new music that comes to me at RUST plus vintage vinyl from thrift stores and garage sales. A typical night with me on the decks mixes punk rock, scratchy old lounge LP’s and fresh new music.
How were you introduced to PreSonus?
Recently I picked up a BlueTube DP V2 to add analog warmth to my DJ kit sound. It worked so great, I reached out to PreSonus to get more involved with their family.
Tell us how you use your BlueTube DP V2!
I use a BlueTube DP V2 as the very last piece of equipment on my signal path for the purpose of adding strength and personality to my sound. Not only is most of the music I play digital, but there’s even a second digitizing EQ along the chain. Adding the BlueTube DP V2 allows me to “warm up” the digital sound with a pair of real tube amplifiers. The result is a richer, fuller sound with a stronger low end and an old-school feeling that most digital music and devices are lacking today. The PreSonus BlueTube DP V2 totally upgraded the personality of my music and people are constantly asking me about it. They hear the music and ask what kind of equipment I am using and I always tell them that having the twin tube amplifiers is what makes my sound so unique.
What’s so great about PreSonus, anyhow?
What’s so great about PreSonus is that their physical equipment is designed by people with a real passion and understanding of music technology. They’re like your twin, finishing your thoughts. They know what you want, and they work their butts off to make quality pieces that are intuitive to use, and affordable to buy. PreSonus equipment has a vibe, a groove, and a style all it’s own. For me it delivers a personality that adds a whole new dimension to my events. It sets a mood that other gear just cannot compare to.
