Hi guys, hope you are doing well.
I wanted to give you and update on Nimbit and on my new BlueTube DP V2!
Last year I ended my relationship with my old online distribution account for several reasons, so I was really happy when I received your email regarding the Nimbit accounts for PreSonus Artists… but I wasn’t sure what to expect.
So far, we have uploaded two of my albums to Nimbit, and all of the descriptive info. Nimbit is great! It’s very user-friendly and offers many more options than other online distribution platforms. It’s a great product! We will go live when we get three more CDs up. The uploading of my entire catalog will take some time (13 already-released albums and about another dozen or so unreleased!) but hopefully it will all be up within the next few months. I will also provide more feedback to you after we go live. Thanks to PreSonus and Nimbit!
>As for the BlueTube DP V2, I use it for live shows: one channel for guitar, and the other for vocals. I like it better than my old preamp for several reasons.
I notice an increased fullness of the voicing and more clarity in the higher range of my guitar.
The power cord is much more rugged and hearty, and is not as delicate as the electrical cord that came with the previous model. There were a couple of times when the power cord got kicked out. As said, I use it for live gigs—not to say that the old cord was a dealbreaker, but for live gigs the new one is really durable—it’s inevitable that sometimes the end that plugs into the power strip accidentally gets stepped on and pulled, but this cord can take it.
Believe it or not, I liked the owner’s manual! It is way more user-friendly! I have never been a very technical guy. Not to say that the old manual was Greek to me, or anything like that… but the new manual is laid out really well and the organization of the information works better for me.)
Also, the unit seems to be just a little bit bigger. That’s good because it sits in myeffect rack better!
Last but not least, the Jambalaya recipe. I cooked some up and it’s great!
Again, thank you and thank PreSonus. Please give my regards to Mark Williams. I look forward to seeing y’all at NAMM. I will be sure to pass by and say hello!
