  • Presonus for the win!!!

    We got to use our new Presonus Studiolive 24.4.2 last night and it was as if we had an entirely new sound system. I never thought our PA would/could sound that good. I wish we were able to purchase one of these months ago!

    If you are considering one, I highly recommend taking the plunge! Since the new AI versions came out, the original Studiolives have undergone pretty drastic price reductions. I got mine for 50% off of MSRP through Sweetwater. 

    Next step: in-ears all around!!!!

      We had ours setup to do the same. Our soundman was definitely enjoying the freedom. On my side, I can't get over how awesome it was being able to control my monitor mix using my iPhone.

       I have the 16.4.2 and the 16.0.2 and really like them alot. Not set up for I pad operation since we run sound from stage. But it is great that it can be used both ways.

        I've been using my 24.4.2 for 2 and a half years now. I always get lots of compliments. Last night I did sound for 3 bands. One band had a spouse with them. He said he had seen the band over 20 times and this was hands down the best they had sounded.

        That was last night. Tonight I'm providing sound and lights for a seniors fundraiser with a band. Remote mixing again.

        I love it!

          Video from last night. It was nice seeing the seniors all having a good time! It was a fundraiser for seniors housing. Great band, great cause. I gave them a $200 fundraiser discount. The crowd was motley seniors, with others as well. $60/plate. They threw in 4 tickets, to give to my parents and a couple of their friends. It was a really great time. Fun seeing all the seniors up dancing. My parents had a rare occasion to see what I do. They said later they felt awkward watching me snort some blow off a hookers ass, but it is what it is.

          Haha kidding. It was fun, the band was easy to work with and they enjoyed their mix as well. The organizers were really happy that almost everyone stayed until the end. These are 60, 70, 80 year kids we are talking about.

          Had a nice mix, I made sure I wasn't blowing everyone away, and that you could hear the vocals well. I was too sick leading up to really do anything with the lights so I just keep it simple.

          The last song of the night. He gave me a nice shout out which is always nice!

          Wonder how often it sounds better because it's not as loud as when they run their own sound? My band played a club with their own sound engineer and I will say what I heard onstage was just fine. It was also 10 dbc lower than the level my bandmates have been forcing on me. Our constant audience member who attended the show said it was like listening to a different band. (All good.) And he could even hear the conversation two tables away from him. (Again, had to be much lower volume.) This isn't the MRX 515s being run at the limiters. (200 watts a cabinet - about 120 dbc splash.) In the last two months I haven't heard anyone tell someone else to turn down. Only turn up. There's something wrong in that. (I did warn them not to mess with the sound guy. They left him alone and things went well. Thanks Stu. Great job.)

        Do they work with other tablets?  Or just iPads?

         

        I do have an iPhone.  But, I'd like to get a tablet within the next month or so.... might be a big reason to get an iPad.

          Just iPads & iPad minis.

          I have an iPad 1 and an iPad mini. I prefer the size of the mini. I may someday ditch the ipad1 (give it to my mom) and get an iPad mini with the Retina Display.

          But not yet. For now, both work fine.

          The size and weight of the mini is a noticeable difference in the field.

          Hmmmm that depends on how good your eyes are. It would be less obtrusive attached to a stand.

            I've seen folks using an iPhone for chords and lyrics . Personally I use a full size iPad for that.
