New York, NY (July 24, 2013)—Although he left the band in 1980, Roger Fisher, a founding member of the classic rock group Heart, has continued his career in music production, with a track record that includes scores for movies and television, commercial music and a continuous collection of projects with his brother, Mike Fisher.
Most recently, the Fisher brothers completed a project called Love Alive, using PreSonus’ Studio One. “It was our first project using Studio One, and we knew we’d be getting up to speed on a new DAW while we were working on the recording,” Roger Fisher said. “We were also producing video at the same time, and it was our first project using [Apple] Final Cut. So we were learning two new programs at the same time. Needless to say, we approached it with some trepidation.”
However, after starting to use Studio One, Roger Fisher said it was an easy program to adapt to. The brothers use Studio One mainly as a multitrack recorder for the live performances on the project. They also used Studio One’s Melodyne editing software.
“Frequently when you’re recording a track, you might be thrilled with the performance at the time, but a week or two later, you notice some little stuff that’s out of tune or some other anomaly. With Melodyne, you can go in there and use it on a chord and actually see which string is out and make it right,” Mike Fisher said.
