[I noticed a jovial exchange between two of our most vocal advocates on Twitter, @BSWorship and @RayManuelMuzik. Both are diehard Studio One junkies, and in discussing our software via Tweet, the two decided to collaborate on a remix of Brandon Scott’s “Do You Love Me?” The original track and remix are both available here for your listening pleasure, and the two artists were kind enough to spare a couple paragraphs about their experience.]
“So, what happened was Ray heard my song “Do You Love Me” thought he could do a killer remix on the song that I could add as a bonus track to the EP coming out July 4th. We met on twitter through PreSonus releasing my new endorsed artist article. I listened to what Ray was doing himself in Studio One and thought, “I don’t listen to much Latin music, but his stuff is really good and sounds great! If he wants to have a go at making a remix of one of my songs, then I’d be honored to have him be a part of it!” So, we started talking more and more via Twitter (I never have met him in my life, FYI) and just hit it off. I stemmed out the mixes of each instrument for my song, dropped it in DropBox and he was good to go. Studio One makes online collaborating so easy it’s sick! I love how simple it is to send files to others around the world to collaborate on amazing music! Music is what we feel, it moves us, and Studio One is the software that will move you into making amazing music with others around the world. It really is the game changer to music as we know it.”
Here’s Brandon’s original song:
“Brandon is pretty much in the ball park! We became friends because of how much we love Studio One and became good Twitter friends— its all about #TeamPreSonus! We decided to collaborate and make something crazy happen since sharing session and stems with Studio One is so easy. Studio One is the best DAW because we can do everything in one place; producing, recording, mixing, mastering, and beyond—even uploading the music to the Internet! I actually got rid of all my other DAWs. Brandon and I just became PreSonus buddies and we are happy to share our music, our talents and our culture, using Studio One as our platform to make it happen! Like Brandon says, Studio One is a game changer. It definitely changed my approach—and speed—to making music.”
Here’s RayManuel’s remix:
