Explore 250 exciting presets for your Mai Tai synth engine in Studio One! EDM Synth Classics is the follow-up to our hugely successful Analog Model Machine from Ari Ahrendt.
Take your Mai Tai sound library to a new level with EDM Synth Classics, the follow-up title to the hugely successful Analog Model Machine! Modern, club-friendly, extreme and aggressive—these 250 presets are tailored for classic and contemporary EDM, electro house, minimal, psytrance, dance hall, chill, progressive, and hardstyle. These versatile presets include basses, mono and poly leads, pads, drums and effects that are right at home in clubs, festivals, soundtracks, videos, or radio spots.
EDM Synth Classics are made for ultra-fast editing and expressive live performance. Use the modwheel for drastic sound-shaping and morphing and create completely different sounds by saving a fixed modwheel position within your song. All presets are volume-matched for added usability and compatibility. Drum sounds are tuned to the General MIDI (GM) map (kick drums on C, snares on D), making it easy to create entire drum kits from either multiple instances of Mai Tai on separate tracks or inside a Multi Instrument (Studio One Professional only).

About Everything But Sticks
Let’s be honest. 99% of the drum loops in existence use sticks. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but isn’t it time to do something different? This is why we set out to produce Everything But Sticks, a collection of loops and samples that take a new and fresh approach to grooves on the drum set.
By using a wide variety of brushes, mallets, bundles, kitchen utensils and even our bare hands, we were able to pull out an entire range of timbres and dynamics from the drum kit that sticks simply can’t produce. For fans of our Cinematic and Art of Brushes collections, Everything But Sticks will be a welcome addition to your arsenal of loops and samples. And if you’re not familiar with some of our non-stick offerings, Everything But Sticks is the perfect place to start.

Ryan Landry is PreSonus’ Inside Sales Lead and Magisterial Overseer of Cookie Distribution. When not at the office, Ryan lives the life of a multi-talented drummer/poet; a renaissance man who lives on the razor’s edge between heartbeats and spreadsheets.
Ryan’s been with us for a few years now and we’re not quite sure what we would do without cookies.
My co-workers. I work with some truly incredible people.
But who’s your favorite?
Everyone is my favorite equally. (Hope my boss sees this)
What was the first 8 track, cassette, CD, digital download you purchased?
Unfortunately, I never saw the light of day for 8 tracks or cassettes. The first CD that I can remember buying is “Broken Boy Soldies” by The Raconteurs.
Who’s your go to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?
This Will Destroy You. Specifically, their self-titled album.
What do you love about the Studio 192?
The quality of sound, the remote preamps, and the mixer in UC Surface. Being a DIY bedroom drummer, it’s the perfect tool for me to get high-fidelity recordings at home. I keep my drums set up in one room and my computer is located in another room. From my iPad, I can set my preamp levels, create a monitor mix, and control Studio One 3 from the Studio One Remote App all without ever having to leave my drums. It’s the dream piece of gear for a lazy drummer like me.
What other products do you have?
A pair of Eris E8’s, a pair of Eris E4.5’s, a pair of Ceres 4.5’s, a Monitor Station, an AudioBox iTwo, an HP2, an HP4, and Studio One 3.
Tell us about the coolest thing you’ve done with PreSonus.
Meeting Mutemath! I’ve been a big fan of them for a couple of years now and I was excited to learn when they started using our mixers on their Vitals tour. They had an off day on tour and came by the office to pick up some more gear; I got a chance to meet the guys and hang out for a bit.
What are you currently working on? What’s next for you?
Outside of work? My band, Spyglass, is working on finishing our debut album that’s going to be released this summer.
Got any tips for working with the interface?
Use it with Studio One 3 for the best experience, hands down. The Z-Mix feature will allow you to do zero-latency monitoring within Studio One 3.
Jason Klein, bassist of the Butcher Babies, tells us about how the band is using the PreSonus CS18AI & RM32AI systems for both their in-ear monitoring system as well as multi-track recording of their live shows via Capture and Studio One—all happening at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest 2016.

where the Grammy Award winner engineers and produces projects in a wide variety of musical genres. But every year, when the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival rolls around, Shaw and his team decamp for Manchester, home of the festival. There, behind the main stage, they soundproof their double-wide mobile recording trailer with 500 hay bales.
In this once-a-year Hay Bale Studio at Brigadoon—er, Bonnaroo—Shaw and his team record dozens of bands that will appear at the festival. The performances are fed to more than 40 radio markets around the USA.
For the 2017 Bonnaroo, Hay Bale Studio offered more capabilities than ever before, as Shaw mixed on the new PreSonus StudioLive 32 Series III digital console/recorder, while his team captured the tracks and main mix in PreSonus’ popular Studio One 3 Professional DAW.
“The StudioLive 32 allowed us to bring in all 24 inputs from the recording floor, so we could record a full band. We’re recording in multitrack to Studio One using the console’s AVB audio interface, which can send and return up to 55 streams over one CAT5 Ethernet cable,” says Shaw.
Shaw mixes live while the band is performing, a job made much easier by the StudioLive 32 Fat Channel signal-processing section’s customizable user interface. “I’ve got compressors and EQ on every channel,” Shaw specifies, “and the customizable Fat Channel lets me create my own layout so I can quickly access the processing I want when mixing. I can bring in four onboard effects processors for reverb and delay, and I also patch in my outboard spring reverb. I use Tap Tempo on the mixer to ensure the timing of the delay effects works with what the band is playing.”
PreSonus’ FlexMix feature also has proven useful. “I choose a FlexMix, and the entire mixer configuration changes and shows me what’s going on with that FlexMix,” instructs Shaw. Using the StudioLive 32’s aux sends, Shaw and team send four custom headphone cue mixes. “We send the cue mixes to the PreSonus HP4, which is a great, simple 4-channel headphone box that is really loud,” he avers. “We have two people with iPads running UC Surface software to control the monitor mixes.”
Main engineer Michael Hardesty also is equipped with UC Surface but he’s running it on a laptop. “Anything Lij can do on the mixer, I can do just as well in the software. My main goal is to set preamps and compressors and do the gain staging so I can get the multitrack feeds recorded properly in Studio One. I am also taking a print of the mix but generally I’m working with individual tracks. I also help with headphone mixes,” Hardesty observes.
With UC Surface, it’s possible to control the mixer from multiple devices at the same time. “That means you can give people different responsibilities,” Hardesty explains. “You also can lock out functions on particular devices; the iPad guys on the recording floor can only control the aux sends for the headphone mixes, while my laptop has complete control of the StudioLive 32.”
The live stereo mix goes straight to mastering engineer Joe Hutchinson. “Joe makes the radio mix sound fantastic,” enthuses Shaw. “He also uses Studio One to capture the performance in stereo. So we’re capturing bands through the StudioLive 32, mixing and mastering, and putting it out to more than 40 radio markets—all within an hour of each performance, with two or three songs for each band every hour.”
Thanks to the feature-packed, versatile StudioLive 32 and the power and speed of Studio One, Hay Bale Studio had entirely new capabilities at the 2017 Bonnaroo. “The customizable mixing surface, plenty of processing, wireless remote control, recording features, and ease of use let us do things we could never do at a dozen previous Bonnaroos,” confirms Shaw, “and it all sounded great. “We loved using the StudioLive 32, and we’re very happy with Studio One. Bonnaroo is a highlight of our year, and PreSonus helped make it extra special this year. We hope you’ll visit our site and check out some of the recordings!”

Softube’s Tape plug-in adds cohesion and weight to your mixes. But Tape goes far beyond your average tape machine emulation. It includes three distinctly different tape machine types, and it offers the ease of use and low CPU strain that today’s music creators rightfully expect.
Even in this day and age, it’s common practice for computer-based professional studios to run their mixes through at least one generation of analog tape. Why? Because even when used subtly, analog tape has a smoothing effect and adds cohesion and weight to a mix—it takes the recording from a collection of individual tracks into a song where everything is connected and works together. With Softube’s Tape plug-in, you can have all that and more.
Three Machines in One
Tape includes three different tape machine types in one plug-in. Type A is based on a classic Swiss high-end reel-to-reel machine, known and loved for its precision and linearity. Type B is much more colorful—it’s a transformer based machine which adds extra weight and cream to the low end. Lastly, Type C is based on a British tape machine with a distinct vintage vibe.
Ease of Use
Select your favorite tape machine Type, and adjust the Amount knob to taste. In most cases, that’s all you need to do to soak your tracks in analog tape sweetness. Easier still, load up one of the included presets, made by award winning engineers such as Joe Chiccarelli (Beck, U2, Strokes) and Howard Willing (Smashing Pumpkins, Sheryl Crow, Kris Kristofferson).
But Wait, There’s More
Feeling tweaky? Why not start by trying the different tape speed settings—you’ll find that the slower the tape speed, the more pronounced is the so-called tape head bump, which adds low end to the mix. Or open the Remote Control panel where you can control the selected tape machine’s speed stability, crosstalk amount and several other tape-a-licious features.
Dense Sound, Light on CPU
Add a single instance of Tape on your master bus to emulate what most computer based studios do today—mix in the computer, then mix down to a stereo tape machine—or go vintage style by adding Tape to every single track in your mix. Yes, your computer will be able to handle it. As most Softube plug-ins, Tape is uniquely light on your computer’s processor.
Extras for Studio One Users
If you run PreSonus Studio One, you can not only use Tape as a standard plug-in—Adding Tape to your MixFX slot gives you Tape Multitrack. Tape Multitrack includes all the goodies of Tape, but in addition, you get selectable crosstalk between each individual track—and you can easily control the Tape Multitrack settings from a single interface. The Tape and Tape Multitrack license is one and the same. This means that if you’re not a Studio One user but at some future point decide to switch to it, you will already have Tape Multitrack installed, licensed and ready to go.
