Buy a StudioLive CS18AI before May 31, 2016 and Get a Free Backpack!

A new month means new deals and new freebies from PreSonus, including a FREE backpack when you purchase the StudioLive CS18AI before May 31, 2016!cs18_backpack_600x600_2-9-16_NEE01

Equipped with 100 mm, touch-sensitive, motorized faders and AVB networking, the StudioLive CS18AI control surface provides a compact, intuitive mixing solution for PreSonus StudioLive RM16AI and RM32AI rack-mount digital mixers and Studio One 3. Doubly cool is that we have a significant rebate offer going on for the Studiolive RMs, and you can combine both offers to get a mix system of up to 64 channels, all controllable from the CS18AI. Click here for more details on the RM mixer offer!

The black and grey, backpack-style gig bag will keep your also black and grey CS18AI safe and sound on the road, and is stylistically compatible with both casual and formal attire. Portable and comfortable, this bag provides tons of internal storage and two external pockets. All you need to do is fill out and submit a simple rebate form with proof of purchase of your CS18AI.

Not sure if the CS18AI is right for you? Here’s a video overview to persuade you.

 

This deal is available worldwide until May 31, 2016.

 


Save up to 17% on StudioLive RM-series Mixers until May 31

rm_rebates_ww_300x300_2-2-16_NEE01

Good news for the home studio and live sound crowd—until May 31, 2016, we’re offering up to 17% (That’s $200 in the USA) off of our RM-series mixers. The RM-series mixers recently had cascading support added in the most recent firmware update, allowing you to get ​up to ​a 64-channel mixing powerhouse ​​for not a lot of cash.​ Not to mention, the same firmware update also came with significant advances when using the StudioLive RM as an audio interface with Studio One 3.2, including remote preamp control and hybrid fat channel DSP for low latency recording with FX. And yes through cascading you can have up to 64 channels of I/O in your studio now.

What is cascading you ask? Cascading provides the ability to link two RM mixers together to create one integrated mix system, in this case via Ethernet. Which begs the next question: is this offer is good for​ only “one per customer.” ​No, you can take advantage of this offer on as many RM mixers as you’d like.

​If you’re a StudioLive AI Console user, this offer will be of interest to you as well. ​That’s because the new firmware update also added a stagebox mode to the StudioLive RM for integrating it with your Trusty StudioLive 32.4.2 AI (or any console in the series) at front of house.  ​We know, this all sounds great, but why choose the RM? Lots of ​other ​reasons​… ​here’s what Front of House had to say about it, in part:

“Clearly there’s a lot here and I could spend the next 20 pages getting deeper into the possibilities of this versatile system. But for me, the bottom line here is that the RM mixers are affordable, with a solid build, great sound and an overflowing feature set with more to come, such as AVB integration. Unfortunately, my experience with this system left me with an seemingly incurable addiction for multi-touch, and it’s hard to break that habit.”

Worth noting is that this is a great opportunity to do the promo combo mambo. We’re also currently running a deal on the StudioLive CS18AI​, the touch sensitive control surface for the StudioLive RM​ that includes a free backpack. So, if you’re looking to get a full-on 64-channel mix system​ (or even just a 16)​ while saving a significant amount of money, and get a useful, practical freebie while you’re at it—now’s your chance!
