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.

Goes to show that you just can’t keep a good promo down. Due to popular demand, we’ve extended our existing StudioLive RM mixer rebates until August 31. We’re offering up to 17% off of the RM-series StudioLive mixers. That’s $200 in the USA, but exact amounts will vary regionally.
If you haven’t checked in on the RMs in a while, it’s worth noting that The RM-series mixers recently had cascading support added in the most recent firmware update, allowing you to get build a 64-channel mixing powerhouse. If that’s appealing to you, it’s right for you to know that this is not a one-per-customer discount offer. And if you own a StudioLive AI console mixer, you’re likely interested in the RM’s new stagebox mode.
But don’t take it from us… 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 a seemingly incurable addiction for multi-touch, and it’s hard to break that habit.”
Quick question–what do the Beatles, Pink Floyd and this Classical Guitar sample for Notion have in common? Answer–they were all recorded at the historic Abbey Road Studios in London, England! You officially learned something today.

These samples include variations for open strings, hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, and left-hand and right-hand fingering control and can be used with Notion version 4 or later and Progression 3 or later.
