PreSonus Congratulates Winners of Pads 'n' Pods Giveaway
October 4, 2012
PreSonus™ has announced the winners of its Pads 'n' 'Pods Giveaway Contest.
Chosen from thousands of online entries, the winners - one in the U.S. and one in Europe - were awarded a complete StudioLive™ 16.0.2 / Apple Remote Control Kit, including four iPod touches® and a 16 GB iPad® 3.
The winner of the European Pads 'n' Pods giveaway is Andreas Rösch of Nürnberg, Germany. Andreas mixes his band Segard using a StudioLive 24.4.2 console.
"Winning this prize gives us the freedom to use iPods® to mix our monitors on stage and enables us to rapidly achieve the best in-ear sound," says Rösch. "What's more, our sound engineer is no longer bound to the FOH location. He can now operate the console via iPad from anywhere in the venue. We're about to embark on a tour across Germany and will be able to exploit the full potential of the StudioLive technology. Thank you, PreSonus!"
In the U.S., the lucky prizewinner is Sean Menza of Lakewood, Washington. Sean uses a StudioLive 16.0.2 to mix and record his band Unified Culture. "The StudioLive console gives us everything we need to mix our band, from great-sounding preamps to onboard effects," says Menza. "We've always loved the fact that it gives us more than enough aux buses to give everyone a monitor mix. With our new Pads 'n' 'Pods prizes, we can use QMix™ to control our mixes up on stage. And I can use the iPad® to mix the band live from anywhere in the room. It doesn't get any cooler than that."
StudioLive Remote software, available free from the Apple App Store, provides direct wireless control over PreSonus Virtual StudioLive software for Mac® and Windows®, allowing you to remote control any StudioLive mixer. QMix software (also available free from the App Store) enables each musician to control their own individual monitor mix using an iPhone® or iPod touch®.
