Nashville, TN (August 5, 2016)—Recently, following a visit to Antelope Audio’s booth at Summer NAMM in Nashville, session guitarist and Grammy-nominated songwriter Todd added the company’s new Zen Tour and Orion Studio to his equipment arsenal.
Lombardo recently relocated to Nashville, where he has been contributing his guitar work to the latest Lady Antebellum and David Nail records, and has also played an integral role in the Music Bed licensing site, for which he is a resident composer. Since being introduced to Zen Tour and Orion Studio at Summer NAMM, Lombardo has immersed himself in each interface’s capabilities. “I’ve already spent a lot of time with the amp modeling and the EQs on the units, and have since made about 20 presets that I really like,” he says.
“In the studio, it’s great for setting up a vibe quickly—particularly when I am working on a pop country song and need to hone on exactly the right combination of sounds.”
He adds, “As a touring musician, there are times and places where I need to be quiet and just not use an amp. For these times—which might be in a hotel room or on a tour bus—Zen Tour is the perfect accessory because I can acheive a no-compromise guitar sound and just use the headphone out on Zen Tour. This kind of thing makes it extremely versatile.”
