  • Studio One is First Call for Ellefson

    Mike Lawson | Supplier Scene | November 6, 2014

    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.”

    These 30 B&S Challenger I Bb trumpets have outfitted the entire trumpet section of the Cardinal Marching Band and were unveiled to the students on Monday, October 20, 2014 as a complete surprise. “From the minute ‘go,’ the difference in sound has been dramatic – bigger, more cohesive sounds.
