A big day for updates: Studio One 3.2, UC Surface 1.5, StudioLive AI Firmware updates (including RM Mixer Cascading), Capture 2.2, and Studio One Remote!

Wow, there’s a lot going on today. This is a long post, so let’s jump right in!

Studio One 3.2

Studio One 3.2 is available now! This is a FREE update to existing owners of Studio One 3, including Artist and Professional editions. Click “Check for updates” in Studio One to get it for yourself. Click here to visit the newly-updated Studio One site for even more details.

Read the full change log by clicking here, but here’s the short version of what’s new:

  • Mix Engine FX with new Console Shaper plugin: Apply effects to a bus that have an effect on all channels routed to the bus. Our first Mix Engine effect is Console Shaper, allowing you to impart analog-style artifacts like crosstalk and drive, evocative of classic analog consoles of yore.
  • VCA Faders: Control groups of channels with a single fader. Link your VCA to a Folder Track for added convenience.
  • Enhancements to the Arrow tool: Highlight the top half of an event in the Edit window to contextually convert the Move tool into the Range tool.
  • Other updates include: extended comping, improved Tab-to-Transients, New Transport Options, Automation Editing Improvements, improved Appearance Controls, and DSP Fat Channel and preamp control for RM mixers—as well as Preamp control for RM mixers and Fat Channel control and integration for both RM mixers and AI Consoles—straight from Studio One!

StudioLive AI firmware updates

New firmware is available for the entire StudioLive AI line from your my.presonus.com account, allowing for control from UC Surface 1.5.

  • 32.4.2AI
  • 24.4.2AI
  • 16.4.2AI
  • RM32AI
  • RM16AI
  • CS18AI

The new firmware for RM Mixers brings hotly-anticipated cascading to the RM series StudioLive Rackmount Mixers. Any two RM mixers can be cascaded via AVB to combine their channel counts. This update also adds a new Stage Box mode, in addition to the existing Remote I/O + Monitor-mixer mode.
This mega-release also brings a number of other new features and refinements, including a whole slew of bug fixes. To see the full rundown of new features and fixes, check out the UC Surface 1.5 Release Notes and the UC Surface 1.5 Release Addendum, available on your my.presonus.com account as well as on the Dowloads section of the Product page for each mixer at PreSonus.com.

UC Surface 1.5

This update adds support for cascaded RM mixers and Capture control—if you’ve installed the above-mentioned firmware and Capture 2.2. This update also adds support for USB 3.0 on Mac OS X 10.11.2 or higher. Get UC Surface 1.5 here.

Capture 2.2

Capture can now be remotely controlled by a StudioLive CS18AI and UC Surface. You can now control virtual soundcheck, transport, and Record arm; drop markers; and keep an eye on record times from anywhere in the venue—among other improvements and some bug squashing. Get it here.

Studio One Remote

Studio One Remote has been updated for Studio One 3.2 compatibility, and is also now available for Windows tablets! Studio One Professional owners can get the Windows version from their my.presonus.com accounts; Apple users can get it via this link to The App Store.

PreSonus Shines at The New Hampshire Music Educators Fall Conference

The New Hampshire Music Educators Fall Conference or “October Music Fest” is the first of two major music education conferences held annually in New Hampshire. This is a full-day conference attended by more than 300 music educators from New Hampshire. In addition to music technology, there are clinics presented relevant to other disciplines such as band and choir techniques, classroom guitar methods and general music.
Carl Benevides presented a 90-minute clinic entitled “Fun with Technology.” The session explained how technology can be integrated in ensemble rehearsals to augment teaching. In addition to exploring uses for Apple’s Garageband and iPad, one of the main focuses was on the use of the PreSonus StudioLive 16.0.2. Topics included the use of Capture as an easy solution for recording ensemble rehearsals and concerts and the use of QMix software to remotely control the StudioLive—citing the benefit of conducting from stage and being able to control overall levels while on stage using Qmix on an iPad. The video has been edited to show the relevant portions discussing the PreSonus StudioLive 16.0.2 hardware and software, Capture and QMix.
