When he’s not working with metal giants Megadeth, internationally acclaimed bassist David Ellefson keeps busy with an impressive range of his own projects. His DAW of choice for these projects is easy-to-use PreSonus® Studio One® Professional.
“To be honest, I have been somewhat ‘DAW-dumb,’ mainly because I never invested a lot of money into an elaborate home studio,” Ellefson observes. “I did it years ago but it seemed like by the time I got done with an 18-month world tour, everything I’d bought was completely obsolete. I just like to sit down, write, and get ideas right into the computer with the least amount of effort possible. I find that as soon as I start getting into the engineering mindset, my musical ideas are gone, and then I end up frustrated and walk away with nothing. So for me, the simpler the better.”
Avid® announced that music legend Paul McCartney has embraced Avid Everywhere™ to support his “Out There” tour. Industry-standard Avid VENUE live sound and Pro Tools® audio production solutions, from the Avid Artist Suite, powered by the Avid MediaCentral Platform, are being used to mix and record his concerts, delivering a faster, more efficient and tightly-integrated workflow, as well as world-class sound for the 59-show tour. The high point of McCartney’s tour was a historic performance at San Francisco’s legendary stadium, Candlestick Park—where The Beatles’ last public concert took place 48 years ago. McCartney’s most recent performance was also the stadium’s last show before shutting down after 54 years of hosting live acts and serving as home field to the city's sports teams.
