Lakeville, MN (November 1, 2017)—Skyland Studios near Minneapolis has chosen myMix for its artist monitoring needs, making it a staple for its artists, according to Darren Rust, who has owned the facility for 11 years.
The studio’s clients are mostly vocalists and occasionally multi-piece bands, he said: “When your average Joe steps into the studio and sees a device sitting in front of him with buttons, knobs and faders all over the place, it can get a little daunting.
“But, when you see the myMix, you see only one knob and a screen. When I have someone new come in to record, it takes no time at all for them to learn how to use it. Artists who have an average understanding of recording can be using it within 30 seconds.”
The gear, he said, helps overcome some of the disadvantages of being short-handed in the studio. “I’m the sole proprietor—the only guy running this recording studio with no assistants or help,” he said. “So I need to have a workflow that is smooth, and the myMix allows that. It allows people to take care of business when they are tracking so that I can do what I need to do in the control room. That’s absolutely essential.”
