Performer is teaming up with Mackie to give 10 artists from across the USA a once-in-a-lifetime shot to be included on a very special vinyl sampler. Here’s the deal in a nutshell — Mackie is introducing a slew of great new products this year that are *perfect* for our readers, including some not even announced yet — and we’ve got our hands on all of them to give away!
You’ll be the first on your block to KNOW ABOUT THEM and have a chance to TEST THEM BEFORE ANYONE ELSE!
We’ll be giving away a mix of the new gear listed above to 5 new artists total for Round 2 (adding to the 5 already selected in Round 1), who’ll work with us to create video demos using the products, so their fellow artists and content creators can see how they work.
You didn’t think we forgot the vinyl, did you? We’re going to open up a public vote to choose 6 of the 10 participants who’ll earn one slot apiece on a limited edition Mackie-branded 12″ vinyl sampler we’re calling “MACKIE ACROSS AMERICA”, featuring exclusive recordings created by each artist inspired by the gear they’ve won.
PLUS we’ll be featuring ALL 10 ARTISTS in a special print feature in an upcoming issue.
