Linzey Rae, Studio One and a Crab Costume Walk into a Kitchen…

Many PreSonus customers ask, “what’s the deal with the Cajun recipes in the back of PreSonus manuals?” May seem odd coming from an audio company, agreed. The truth is, we think it’s cool. We’re a Louisiana company and we’re proud of it. Good food and good music go hand in hand, especially in Louisiana.

We thought it would be fun to combine those things so we hooked up our friend and PreSonus artist Linzey Rae from the band The Anchor with a classic Louisiana recipe for gumbo for one of her Metal Kitchen episodes. Bon Appetit!

She pronounced “andouille sausage” correctly and that makes all of us happy. Can’t wait to hear what’s next from Linzey and The Anchor! Thank you for sharing and for using Studio One!

New AudioBox iOne and Ceres Combo Pack—October 2016 Only!


Know a budding audio producer or musician who is looking to get started recording at home? This combo deal is an excellent introduction to the world of PreSonus. It includes an AudioBox iOne recording interface, Studio One Artist 3 software, and your choice of speakers: The Ceres 3.5BT or 4.5BT.

The AudioBox iOne lets you record guitar and vocals (or whatever else you’d like to stick a mic in front of) to your computer or iPad. The real power of the iOne, however, is the integration between the included Capture and Studio One. You can track some basic recordings onto your iPad, and then wirelessly transfer them to Studio One on your laptop or main workstation for mixing and editing. Record where you’re most comfortable, rather than at a desk.

The Ceres are great entry-level studio monitors, but they also double as wireless Bluetooth speakers for your living room or den. They’re designed by the same great minds who design our pro-level studio monitors like Eris and Sceptre, but are a little more living-room friendly, including a bevy of connectivity formats: 1/4″, RCA, BlueTooth, and good ol’-fashioned speaker wire. Wow! And of course, they’re ready to connect to a subwoofer when you’re ready to upgrade.

This offer is available to customers in the USA, and only via our online store. Click here to shop!

All members of the AudioBox VSL family sport USB connectivity, high headroom, low noise XMAX preamps, sampling rates of up to 96k, and Studio One 3 Artist. The 22VSL and 44VSL give you high-quality audio in a portable profile, and the 1818VSL is rack-mountable and expandable to up to 18 inputs via ADAT. All of these guys also offer MIDI I/O.

They’re great workhorse interfaces, ideal for either home studio rigs or mobile recording.
