Funky Music Tip #1 - Presonus StudioLive Remote Mixer
My latest funky music tip is the Presonus StudioLive mixer. I was on a wedding gig recently and I saw the sound guy walking around with his ipad mixing the monitor and speaker levels remotely. I had to do a double take. Of course I had to ask him what the heck was he doing and he showed me the whole set up. It was so cool to be able to do a mix from the audience’s perspective without having to put up a separate mixing console. He could also adjust the levels in the monitors for the musicians on the fly. So no more… “hey sound man turn me up.” Just a quick discreet cue and the sound man can adjust with his ipad. Ah the age of technology…gotta love it.
