PreSonus Audio Electronics Interviews Justin Lassen (3 Videos)

PreSonus stopped by and checked out my studio setup, my work flow and some of the specific gear I use on projects! Check out these videos! There is a Part 1 (Studio 192 Mobile), Part 2 (DP88) and Part 3 (Eris E66). So if you’ve ever wanted a peak into one of my setups, this is it.  I talk about VR, music, mixing, remixing and hardware/software! Shoutout to iZotope as well! :)

Studio 192 Mobile / Justin Lassen
On-the-go audio virtuoso Justin Lassen (PreSonus Artist/Producer/Composer/Remixer/Sound Designer/DJ/Virtual Reality guy) has chosen the Studio 192 as his interface of choice for a life of producing on the road. Justin travels the world a lot, with 32 flights this year and in-demand by companies, brands and events around the planet the Studio 192 Mobile is the perfect solution for his work on the road and at home.”

Digimax DP88 / Justin Lassen
When Justin is at home from his trips and tours around the world, having the DP88 gives him an ever-expanding array of connectivity options in his studio! It integrates with his Studio 192 Mobile quickly which allows him to keep all his analog synths, workstations and outboard gear always connected and ready for creativity and inspiration.”

Thank you and enjoy! :)
