Special Offer On StudioLive AI Loudspeakers in the USA – save up to $1,000!

SLAIPA_Offer_Digitial_Flyer_3-3-15We thought you should know that for a limited time—until March 31st, 2015—music retailers across the US are offering a monster rebate on the StudioLive AI Loudspeakers:

  • Buy two, and save $500

  • Buy four, save $1000

 

No matter how you slice it, that’s a savings of $250 a piece for some incredible speakers. The StudioLive AI PAs feature our Active coaxial loudspeaker design, as well as sophisticated networking and DSP. With free PreSonus SL Room Control software, you can configure, tune, and monitor networked StudioLive AI loudspeakers from anywhere in the venue—Click here for a video on that. You can even visually display the room layout on a laptop or iPad!

But the StudioLive AI Loudspeakers aren’t just about brain—there’s a lot of brawn here, too. And when it’s time to put some boom in your room, these speakers offer irresponsibly high power—without the breakup and distortion typically associated with chest-resonating high volume.

Midi Music ProAudio Training is a Smashing Success

[This just in from the Press Office of MIDIMusic ProAudio, our distributor in Italy!]

Today, Midi Music has hosted an important event for the Italian key dealers featuring the two main new products recently introduced by PreSonus: The new generation of StudioLive RM Series Rackmount mixers, and the new range of StudioLive AI PA Loudspeakers. About 50 retailers and operators, as well as journalists from Italian commercial audio magazines attended the event.

Francesco Galarà, Midi Music’s new product advisor for the Pro Audio division, described the philosophy and technical characteristics of the RM series, focusing on the unique features and intuitive ease-of-use offered by UC Surface. He also addressed the versatility that makes StudioLive RM16AI and RM32AI suitable for applications in different fields: live sound, studio recording, radio and TV Broadcast, and system integration.

After going deep into the specific details of CoActual and Temporal Equalization technologies, it then has been the turn of the set of StudioLive AI PA speakers.

We conducted a listening test, covering various genres of music from pop to rock, from the classics to jazz and then—the icing on the cake—Tchaikovsky’s famous “Waltz of the Flowers,” which was very suitable for highlighting the magnitude of the StudioLive AI Loudspeakers’ dynamic response, linearity and definition playback—all without compromise at any listening level. The clarity and definition immediately captured the attention and curiosity of the audience, who remained long after the demo with many questions and insights about the features and capabilities of both products.

The event was followed by a nice dinner party, with typical Italian seafood and a fine Piedmont Hills wine selection, offering the participants another opportunity to continue to deepen the discussion about technical and commercial aspects of PreSonus products.

LOS ANGELES: Come on out to PreSonus Exchange Live!

[This just in from Byron Gaither, our very own consummate audio expert and Studio One know-it-all!]

Here are some photos from the 2nd L.A. PreSonus Meetup. We had an open mic for anyone to perform on. We recorded them via Capture, and the entire show was run through the StudioLive 32.4.2AI and StudioLive AI PA speakers. We were then able to open up their songs in Studio One for quick mixes. This is only the second event like this we’ve done, and we had double the turnout of the first!
If you live in the Los Angeles area and are interested in PreSonus, industry networking, or both, you should come on out to the next event; they are hosted monthly. You can learn more and sign up at our Meetup.com page by clicking here.

PreSonus’ own MATSY Debuts Original Score to “The Man Who Laughs”

[This just in from Jason Andreasen, Executive Director of Baton Rouge Gallery!]

Hey PreSonus! I just wanted to say thank you for your support of Baton Rouge Gallery and its Movies & Music on the Lawn series. This past weekend we were, as you know, pleased to screen “The Man Who Laughs” with an original score from Matsy. The weather was perfect and we had an audience of over 400 on hand for the event!

We’ve gotten such wonderful feedback at the gallery about the event. I know we had a number of people use the free passes, so I’m assuming that a number of PreSonus staff/clients were able to come and enjoy the evening.

Again, on behalf of the artists, staff and Board of Directors at BRG, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to you and everyone at PreSonus for the generous support. I hope that you are as proud of the partnership as we are. I’ve attached some photos of the event.

Thank you!
