PreSonus Blog

Long-time home recording honcho (and team captain of the #TeamPreSonus Men’s Cheer Squad) Joe Gilder has been popping up in all kinds of cool places lately, including but not limited to PreSonus LIVE, The Home Recording Weekly Podcast, PreSonuSphere, and… I don’t know, probably Wendy’s.
Joe recently spent some quality time over at was a guest on Home Recording Weekly’s podcast, talking about his new home studio. You might want to make a sandwich before tuning in, as this one runs a little long, but when Joe speaks, you really oughta listen. Note significant coverage of the StudioLive and Eureka around the 14:30 mark.
Thanks to Joe and Home Recording Weekly for this. You can/should keep up with all things Gilder over at Home Studio Corner.

Generally, at NAMM, we run around with cameras and try to interview artists and get them to say nice things about us. Ever the forward-thinking rabble-rousers, Hero’s Last Mission brought their own camera to catch Rachel and Phil at the PreSonus booth and talk about what’s new with us. Turnabout is fair play.

Thanks to HLM for giving us the opportunity to pitch the new RC-500 solid state preamp, the Sceptre monitors, as well as Notion notation software.

Hey! It’s cold outside. We’re experiencing one of the most brutal winters here in Baton Rouge that we’ve ever seen. So, why not stay indoors, get your producing on, and warm up your studio with some hot PreSonus gear? For a limited time, we’re offering the following killer deals. You can take advantage of these offers at a local PreSonus dealer or at your online store of choice. To find a dealer, click on one of the following links:

Buy Sceptre Monitors, get Monitor Station FREE!

Two great products that play well together. The Sceptre monitors are enjoying a lot of critical (and user) praise right now, and must be heard to be believed. Don’t throw out your old monitors, however, as with the Monitor Station, you’ll be able to hear your mixes on both pairs – a critical tool for knowing how your mixes will translate to various listening environments.  Click here to get further details on this world-wide offer, as well as the required rebate form. But maybe before you do that, you should check out these killer reviews of the Sceptres.

 

Buy Eris E5 or E8 monitors, get Studio One Artist Free!

Click here for more info on this deal, but the long and short of it is pretty well summed up by the above. No rebate forms, just savings. Get your Eris, register them at my.presonus.com, and your Studio One Artist activiation code will be available there auto-magically. Currently the Eris speakers are enjoying a five-out-of-five AVERAGE user scores at Guitar Center AND Sweetwater, and we just can’t help but feel like celebrating. History has shown that the best way to share that celebratory spirit is to give away free kick-ass stuff. In this case, it’s Studio One Artist. Don’t forget to grab the free 2.6 update when you install it!

Save $30 on the AudioBox USB until April 30, 2014!

The trusty, sturdy AudioBox USB is aimed squarely at the back-to-basics recording mindset. You get two 1/4″ XLR combo jacks, ideal for recording guitar and vocals simultaneously, MIDI in and Out, Main Outs for your monitor speakers, and a headphone out. Keeping things simple also means keeping them small, and the AudioBox USB will slip right into most any laptop case for recording on the go. Furthermore, it’s USB bus-powered, which means you don’t have to worry about pesky dead batteries or AC power cables mucking up your session. Also, it’s now $30 cheaper, for a limited time. No rebate paperwork, no fuss. Click here for more info.
