Dear PreSonus team,
I would like to let you know that we had a successful StudioLive 16.0.2 launching and Studio One seminar. Thank you so much for all of your support!
All marketing materials and gift packs were very helpful, especially the jambalaya mix! Following your request, we cooked and served jambalaya to the attendees. We were going to cook from the scratch at first before you sent us the mix. It saved tons of time and efforts. People just liked the taste of it.
The launching show was presented in two parts. In the first, we showed how to live mix and record multi-track audio using StudioLive Remote with an acapella group, The Maytree. They are our new endorsement artist of the StudioLive 16.0.2! Serin, who is our Studio One specialist, was in charge of the second part, demonstrating useful features of Studio One Professional 2 with Melodyne.
I have attached some pictures for you!
Thank you again. We couldn’t do this alone without your support.
Simon Scardanelli of Dr. Scardo has been a DAW enthusiast since the clunky days of the Commodore 64. He recently changed horses mid-stream, dumping his Logic session and bringing all the tracks into Studio One Professional 2, which he has taken on as his main DAW. Here he discusses the resultant improvements to his workflow and productivity.
Flattering that a man of such long-running DAW experience would settle on PreSonus Studio One Professional 2. Give him a listen!
[this just in from Scott Szeryk!]
Check this out: We are in the process of a live DVD, “Scott Szeryk Live at Aeolian Hall,” from his Manifesto Tour from summer or 2012. This was recorded on the one and only StudioLive 24.4.2! Note the iPad on the mic stand, which was used for i- ear monitor mixing via SL-Remote. Totally awesome!
PreSonus Universal Control 1.7, which will be released soon, will add three Smaart® System Analysis Wizards to Virtual StudioLive—for free! These System Analysis Wizards include a Smaart Room Analysis Wizard, Smaart Output Check Wizard, and Smaart System Delay Wizard for StudioLive™ 24.4.2 and 16.4.2 consoles.
Of course, you still get the Smaart Spectragraph and Smaart Real Time Analyzer (RTA) that were added to VSL earlier this year, and they work with all three StudioLive models.
These Smaart tools enable you to vastly improve the quality of your sound system—and your effectiveness as a live-sound engineer! You can even interface with them via StudioLive Remote on your iPad.
With these tools in your arsenal, you should probably start charging more for gigs. Just sayin’.
This just in from Sudhin, our partner at ProMusicals, our distributor in India!
“Just back from Broadcast India show! (Oct 10th-12th, 2012) It was a decent show, and featured some serious cameras and lights. Hereare a few pics of the mixers on demo at the show. We demoed the new Smaart features, capture for broadcast studios, etc. All visitors without exception were impressed with the simplicity and user-friendliness of this mixer!”
There’s no two ways around it: for the novice, audio is tricky business. Sometimes you just gotta get your file converted to MP3, or activate your DAW to even get rolling in the first place. I mean, you gotta crawl before you can deliberately manipulate phase cancellation to achieve psychoacoustically pseudo-surround sound on a 2.1 setup, after all.
With that in mind, we present the first set of bite-sized, barely-a-minute, just-the-facts-ma’am set of seven videos in a growing series: PreSonus 101. Learn how to activate Studio One offline, route your headphone mix from the AudioBox 1818VSL, or export a stereo mixdown of your proto-hit from Studio One Artist.
Halocene has been using PreSonus since their first purchase of a FireStudio years ago. Of late they’ve picked up a StudioLive console, a Eureka, and Studio One Professional 2… and in-between they’ve opened for Jimmy Eat World and Blink-182.
Lesson learned: You don’t need to be signed to a major with world-class studio access to open for a band who is. Just get some PreSonus.
Oh, also be sure to write good songs and be young and enthusiastic. That helps, too.
No keyboard player? No problem! Use Melodyne in Studio One Professional 2 to create MIDI keyboard tracks from your audio tracks! What a great time to be a producer/engineer/recordist/whatever. See you in the chat room!
Tune in Tuesday, Nov. 6: 2 p.m. CST / 3 p.m. EST / Noon PST / GMT -6
