Held at the gorgeous Manship Theatre in historic downtown Baton Rouge, and featuring seminars by well-known experts, the conference will present in-depth tips and techniques for PreSonus' StudioLive [tm]-series digital mixers, Studio One 2 DAW, StudioLive AI-series Active Integration [tm] PA speakers, and ADL-series preamps and channel strips. Top professionals will show you how they do their live-sound and recording magic using PreSonus products, and especially popular topics will be repeated so that one- and two-day attendees won't miss out.
This year's presenters will include legendary author and editor Craig Anderton, A-list front-of-house engineer John Mills, Fulcrum Acoustic speaker-design guru Dave Gunness, famed studio designer John Storyk, Audio-Technica mic expert Steve Savanyu, home-recording specialist Joe Gilder, Chris Tsanjoures from Rational Acoustics (Smaart [R]), and multi-instrumentalist, composer, and writer Justin Lassen. Rumor has it that a world-class producer or two might teach a few seminars, as well - more about that soon.
Back by popular demand will be the hands-on Studio One 2 / StudioLive "Genius Bar" where you can get meaningful answers to your thorniest Studio One and StudioLive questions.
Last year, more than 480 attendees from Europe, South America, and the United States gathered at the Manship Theatre for the second PreSonuSphere conference. The two-day conference kicked off with a huge party that featured show-stopping performances by Louisiana bands, a jam session, and the PreSonus staff's traditional home-style jambalaya feast. During the next two days, attendees learned from a variety of music-industry luminaries, exchanged tips and ideas, greeted old friends, and made new ones. Between seminars, they strolled the beautiful downtown Baton Rouge riverfront area and enjoyed the local restaurants and coffee shops. And in the evenings, they were treated to two concerts.
PreSonuSphere 2013 is going to be even bigger, better, and more fun! As you would expect in Baton Rouge, attendees will enjoy plenty of great Louisiana food and music. The conference kicks off with the ever-popular jambalaya feast on Thursday evening, along with a free concert featuring the Louisiana-flavored music of L'Angelus. On Friday morning, the main event gets rolling with the first seminars. Friday evening features a free concert by Louisiana pop band Royal Teeth. And after the final seminar on Saturday, the gang will gather for the optional PreSonuSchmooze dinner.
A note to the readers of RECORDING magazine: Our editor Mike Metlay will be attending and is looking forward to meeting you!
