CES 2013: A Prelude to NAMM 2013

Typically CES is home to the latest innovations and announcements from the world of cameras, televisions, and new smart phone technology.

Monster DNA Headphones Preview

Monster, who made a name for themselves by creating top-end audio/video cables, hasn’t been in the spotlight recently except for their collaboration with Dr. Dre and his well known Beats By Dre headphones.  If anything, Monster has been very good at promoting and marketing themselves as a brand that caters to the audiophile while remaining visible on the consumer market.

Edwin McCain Live Recording and interview | Unique Squared Mobile Studio

Edwin McCain

Recently we had the pleasure of hosting some great guitar playing and singing by Grammy-nominated musician Edwin McCain on board the UniqueSquared Mobile Studio.

Edwin and his personal sound engineer Brent Moreland were inside the Unique Squared Mobile Studio to talk about the PreSonus Studio Live 24.4.2 since it is the mixer of choice that they use while out on the road. With 11 albums in the bag and a wall of platinum and gold albums that have sold in the millions, the main thing Edwin is concerned with is, ‘the moment’:
