Everyone has heard the story of Saint Patrick—the patron saint that came to Ireland in the AD 400s and converted Ireland to Christianity. Each year on the 17th of March, it appears that everyone has a little bit of Irish in them when St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated! This is especially true here at PreSonus, where we can proudly say we have our own Irish relations based in Co. Cavan where our EMEA office PreSonus Europe Limited is based.
Two well-established Irish bands who have recently started using PreSonus gear are Le Boom and The Lost Brothers. We will be tracking their progress with them over the coming months… but see a quick intro into both bands below.
Le Boom is an indie-electro-house-pop duo based in Dublin, Ireland. They are known for their energetic live performances which feature a frenzy of glass-bottle beats, layered loops, catchy vocal hooks and sweaty fans who dance like no other fans in the world. Their song, “What We Do,” has featured in a number of ad campaigns for TV. According to the US’ Paste Magazine, Le Boom are “Breaking into America in a big way.”
“I recently started using Quantum in our live shows to run my drum samples through VST effects in real time. The lightning-fast latency is essential for this to go smoothly. So far I’ve been really impressed and the drivers have been rock solid.” —Aimie, Le Boom
Irish band The Lost Brothers are Oisin Leech from Meath and Mark Mccausland from Omagh. They have just released their fifth album to huge critical acclaim. In 2018 they tour UK, Ireland, Australia, and the US.
“With emotionally wrenching and confessional songwriting they have the remarkable ability of making a large room feel very intimate indeed. With a masterful blend of careful songwriting and tuneful harmonies, the Lost Brothers make a lasting impact.”
—The Huffington Post (live review)
Oisin of the lost brothers uses a Studio 68 interface to record demos in his home studio and while on the road.
“I just started out using the PreSonus Studio 68 and Studio One to record demos at home. I love the great clear sound from the XMAX preamps, and Studio One’s workflow has been really easy to adapt to.” – Oisin, The Lost Brothers
Baton Rouge-based Thou—winners of Pitchfork’s Metal Record of the Year in 2014—recently took a Studio 192 on the road to record rehearsal sessions and demos for a forthcoming full-length.
Opportunities for collaborative songwriting had become more difficult for the band, as their members have scattered across the country. They typically only get together for tours and shows, making songwriting and recording opportunities somewhat scarce.
Not anymore. Recording straight into Studio One via the Studio 192 allowed the band to write and record in whatever impromptu spaces their tour found them in. Josh Nee (Drums) took recordings home to edit and mix demos for the record after returning from their most recent tour. The full-length, Magus, is on its way.

Our previous rebate offering of the AudioBox VSL interfaces proved so popular that we decided to just up and slash the prices for good. While the exact dollar amount will vary by region, expect to pay up to a whopping 20% less today than you would have just a short time ago.
All members of the AudioBox VSL family sport USB connectivity, high headroom, low noise XMAX preamps, sampling rates of up to 96k, and Studio One 3 Artist. The 22VSL and 44VSL give you high-quality audio in a portable profile, and the 1818VSL is rack-mountable and expandable to up to 18 inputs via ADAT. All of these guys also offer MIDI I/O.
They’re great workhorse interfaces, ideal for either home studio rigs or mobile recording.

Are you the sort of singer/songwriter who wants an AudioBox that matches that nice brushed aluminum look of your laptop perfectly?

The AudioBox iOne allows you directly record an instrument of choice and a single XLR microphone simultaneously, which is what makes ideal for the singing guitarist crowd. Just connect your guitar to the 1/4″ input on the front, your mic to the XLR port on the front, and connect the AudioBox to your computer via USB.

Not that we recommend keeping it in a shoebox. Be nice to it, it’s shiny.
The new Studio 192 has been enjoying rave reviews of late, but we’ve found a way to make it even better—by adding free stuff!
