It has an omnidirectional polar pattern, meaning it is equally sensitive in all directions. This allows the microphone to measure reflections, as well as direct signals, providing an accurate depiction of the room. Usually $79.95 but yours free with this deal!
  • IPS-1 iPad Stand keeps your iPad safe and visible so you can keep an eye on UC Surface and  your hands busy mixing. This is a $55.95 value.

Free Iso Pads with Purchase of Studio Monitors

If you’ve been looking to upgrade your studio monitors and listening environment, July’s a great time. You’ll get a free pair of the ISPD-4 Monitor Isolation Pads when you buy a pair of refurbished PreSonus studio monitors from shop.presonus.comfree_iso_pads_600x600_nee01!

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

In case you’re wondering about why you would want studio monitor pads, consider this: When the driver in your studio monitor vibrates, the entire box vibrates along with it. These vibrations are subsequently transferred to any surface the studio monitors are resting on. That includes your desk, and once the desk gets moving, it’s likely to have a resonant frequency or two. This transforms your desk into something of a crappy studio monitor in its own right. This will most certainly lead to louder, inaccurate bass response in your studio.

That might even sound cool to you, at first. But the fact is that this resonance results in an inaccurate portrayal of your mixing work in the worst of all possible places—your studio! A recording might sound great in your studio sans isolation pads. But it will render thin and without much bottom-end when played on other audio systems.

The ISPD-4 Monitor Isolation Pads are the solution to this problem. While admittedly low-tech, they’re an important component to creating honest, accurate, pro-level mixes. And they’re here, for you, included with your purchase of studio monitors from shop.presonus.com.

Click here to visit shop.presonus.com and pick the best studio monitors for your music and budget!

A word about our refurbished products: Hardware from shop.presonus.com has been fully tested, includes our one-year warranty, and isn’t missing any parts, documentation, or cabling like you might find from other manufacturer’s “B-Stock” items. This stuff is good as new, guaranteed. We call it B+ stock.

Eligible product families for this offer include:

  • Eris
  • Sceptre
  • Ceres
  • Temblor

Yeah, Temblor, the subwoofers. While not recommended for use with the monitor pads, we figure some of you out there already have monitors, but no sub or iso pads, and we didn’t want to leave you out.

25% off Eris MTM & R-series Studio Monitors, July 2016

PreSonus Studio Monitors: 25% discount

PreSonus Studio Monitors

Save 25% on PreSonus Studio Monitors

PreSonus E44 and E66 MTM Studio Monitors:

While MTM technically stands for “Midwoofer—Tweeter—Midwoofer,” you ought to know that they’re good from Mixing-To-Mastering. The MTM speaker configuration allows the MTM studio monitors to deliver the widest stereo field available in their class. You get a more consistent listening experience from varied listening perspectives. They’re also louder than they look, since the combined signal of the two relatively small drivers propagates forward like a single waveform. This mutual coupling provides a highly dynamic output in a compact footprint. And if footprint’s not an issue, mount them horizontally. We’ve designed them to sound just as good in either configuration.

Check out this video from A-list producer Chaka Blackmon. He relies on the Eris E66s for his daily grind.

PreSonus R-series R80 and R60 AMT Studio Monitors:

The R-series contrasts from the MTMs in a couple ways. While the singular woofer approach is a more traditional, the Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter is the star of the show. At the core of AMT is the astonishingly thin (< 0.01 mm!) Kapton® membrane voice coil, which moves at the same instant as the current that drives it, with no dampening applied to negatively affect the tweeter’s transient response time.

As a result, the R-Series faithfully reproduce the highest frequencies that can be heard by the human ear—and the vast majority of human microphones. The sonic result is a greater sense of air, space, and imaging that is characteristic of audiophile recordings and off-the-charts transient response. Furthermore, the AMT’s design inherently offers 8 to 13 times the projection area of a typical dome tweeter. This widens the stereo image considerably, while keeping problematic vertical dispersion in check. Consequently, the R80s sound consistent regardless of what room you place them in; a versatile choice for audio recording studios and post-production.

Here’s Mike White on the R-series.

Finally, both the R-series and the MTMs offer all the Acoustic Space tuning and connectivity options you’d ever need, and include RCA, 1/4″, and XLR inputs.
