Orion32 Serves as Kid’s ‘Digital Hub,’ Providing Unmatched Flexibility and Audio Quality in Routing Hardware and Software Virtual Instruments

Anaheim, CA, January 23, 2014 – Antelope Audio [Booth 7118 - Arena] counts international DJ/producer phenomenon Dusty Kid (a/k/a Paolo Alberto Lodde) among its fans. A dedicated electronic music artist since age 12, Dusty Kid is very much in demand among the international DJ circuit, having toured relentlessly for the last seven years. In the studio, the Orion32 has helped Dusty Kid realize his dream of realizing the ultimate ‘modular studio,’ enabling him to seamlessly connect the hardware and software devices he needs for unmatched flexibility and audio quality. We spoke to Dusty, who was born to make music [indeed, he claims his first word was 'vinyl’] just before the 2014 NAMM Show to find out how the Orion32 fits into his music creation scheme.

Today, it is quite different as most people use computers to match tempos of digital files and basically anyone can find just about any music on the Internet!
