Baton Rouge, LA (May 8, 2009)--The Tourism Authority of Thailand is sponsoring a series of special events in the town of Cha-am, the first of which was the recent Chom Wang Fang Phleng Banleng Tai Saengchan festival, held on April 25.
The Chom Wang festival featured a parade of classic cars and palace-style Thai food, but the highlight was a huge outdoor concert near the Cha-am beach. There, 10,000 music fans enjoyed the music of such popular Thai stars as Groove Riders singer Burin Boonwisut, Saksit "Tor" Vejsupaporn, Koh Mr.SaxMan, Flure singer Suwira "Q" Boonrod, and Jennifer Kim. The artists performed a variety of their hits as well as popular songs rearranged as pop-jazz covers.
The concert was recorded for posterity, which meant recording 58 tracks of audio into a computer. To accomplish this, audio engineer Pruchayar “Art” Chaiyasothi combined five PreSonus DigiMax FS preamps, one PreSonus FireStudio 26x26 audio interface, and one FireStudio Lightpipe interface.
“PreSonus equipment is very easy to use, and the mic preamps have a big, clear sound,” Chaiyasothi explains. “It’s very important to us that the price is reasonable, and the quality is very good. We connected the hardware and installed the drivers for the FireStudio and FireStudio Lightpipe. After that, we opened the FireStudio Control Panel to check the mixer and make sure that everything was working. We then closed the Control Panel and launched Cubase Studio 4 to check the I/O in the Device Setup. Then we were ready to record.”
