It’s #PreSonusFAMFriday with Tony Flammia!

 Today’s #PreSonusFAMFriday is the one and only Tony Flammia.

Tony is the Director of PreSonus’ Commercial Audio Division and an all around cool guy who loves his family and Waffle House equally. Tony spends much of his time on the road, training our commercial installation customers on the latest and greatest from PreSonus. We caught up with him on a recent trip to our HQ and quizzed him about his favorite piece of gear: the StudioLive Series III Family!

How long have you worked for PreSonus?
Three years.
What’s your official job title? 
Director, Commercial Audio Division.

What’s your favorite thing about your job? Why did you choose to work here? 

I get to travel the world working with a bunch of great people. I used to be a PreSonus and WorxAudio dealer. When PreSonus purchased WorxAudio I was offered a job to help create a commercial division which has been a blast!

What was the first 8 track, cassette, CD or digital download you purchased? 

8 Track was Aldo Nova (Aldo Nova), cassette was Alice Cooper’s “Poison” single. CD: Skid Row.

Who’s your go-to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?

Anything from Crosby, Stills and Nash to My Chemical Romance… depends on my mood.

What instruments do you play? 
Drums, some guitar, even less keyboards.
What’s your go to Karaoke song? 

The one with no lyrics… So anything Yo-Yo Ma.

What’s your favorite piece of PreSonus gear and what do you love about it?

It’s a tie between the Studio 192 & StudioLive Series III Mixers. I love the Studio 192 because it allows me to take multiple high resolution transfer function measurements at the same time. The StudioLive Series III is a great sounding mixer that incorporates some forward thinking technology. I spend most of my time with the StudioLive Mixers so I’ll go with that as my favorite.

What other PreSonus products do you have? 

AudioBox iTwo, 328AI speakers, AIR15s subs, HP4 headphones, Studio One and Notion.

Tell us about a successful event you worked with PreSonus products.

I just optimized a High School Theater system in Lehigh Acres Florida. The contractor changed the entire ecosystem from a competitor to PreSonus. After tuning the system the school said they never heard the system sound that good before. That’s a win in my book.
What are you currently working on? What’s next for you? 

Right now I working on putting training modules together for our commercial dealers. Our main focus with the commercial division is to help our dealers be the best they can be.

Got any tips for working with the mixer?

My favorite feature on StudioLive Mixers… press and hold the TAP button to zero out parameters.

Anything else you want to share? 

I have the most supportive wife (seriously, I’m on the road a lot) and six amazing kids ranging from three to nineteen years old! They are why I do what I do.
