PreSonus Holiday Specials for December 2015

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday at a close, we’re proud to announce PreSonus Tuesday! We’ve got a couple of new discount offers for you to close out the new year—and we’ve extended a couple of favorites that we had running last month. Check it out:Lo_price_iOne_300x250_11-30-15_Nee01

First up, the AudioBox iOne has had its price permanently dropped to $89.95 USD. This is the ideal portable recording interface for guitarists, and should stuff cozily in most stockings size 12 or larger. Pack it up, take it with you, and record your best riffs directly to your iPad. You can then wirelessly transmit your recordings to Studio One on your main computer for mixing and editing. This is not a rebate, so there’s no proof or purchase required.

Speaking of rebates, we’ve got a new rebate going on the iOne’s bigger Brother: the iTwo and iTwo Studio have a $10 instant rebate this month. The iTwo works just like the iOne, but offers two XLR/1/4″ combo jack inputs to work with, allowing you a bit more connective versatility. If you’re looking for a single-purchase combo pack that includes everything you need to be recording on Christmas morning, check out the iTwo Studio—you get the iTwo interface, Studio One 3 Artist, an M7 microphone, and HD7 headphones—plus all required cabling. As an instant rebate, there’s no hassle with rebate forms.Lo_price_iTwo_300x250_11-30-15_Nee01

We’ve also extended our existing Black Friday StudioLive AI Rebates until December 31—this year, Black Friday lasts over a month! Can you believe it? Our award-winning StudioLive AI mixers can now be had for the following post-rebate prices in the USA:

  • StudioLive 32.4.2 AI: 2299.95
  • StudioLive 24.4.2 AI: 1899.95
  • StudioLive 16.4.2 AI: 1599.95

 

Furthermore, don’t forget that we’ve got a couple other offers that are carrying over from November until the end of 2015:

  • The StudioLive 16.0.2 is down by a couple hundred dollars to $899.95 in the USA.SL_AI_Rebates_300x250_11-9-15_Nee01
  • The AudioBox Music Creation Suite price is down by $50 to $249.95 in the USA.

 

Both of the above are also instant rebates—cash on the table, at the register. Or credit in the account, at the laptop for those of you who aren’t of the brick-and-mortar persuasion.

Introducing the StudioLive Production Suite—StudioLive AI Console Mixers Plus Studio One 3 Professional

Production_Suite_Digital_Flyer_7-22-15

From August 1 through October 31, 2015, customers who buy any StudioLive AI console mixer will also get automatically upgraded to Studio One 3 Professional. If you’re looking for a professional studio solution (even in your very own home), this is the way to go.

StudioLive AI Mixers make a great choice for studio production work for 3 reasons: great sound, flexibility, and software integration.

Let’s Start with Great Sound

  • 96 kHz HD Recording Mode
  • XMAX Preamps
  • Burr Brown Converters
  • The same 64-bit summing, eq, and compression as Studio One 3 Professional

 

Flexibility For Every Studio Environment

  • An integrated FireWire 800 Audio Interface with LOTS of channels (48 x 34 with a StudioLive 32.4.2)
  • Inserts on each channel for integrating external gear
  • 14 Auxes for independent headphone mixes
  • Dedicated Fat Channels and effects processing processing for getting a great sound while tracking (with no latency).
  • Independent Solo Bus
  • Summing Control Room Bus
  • Talkback and more

 

Tight Software Integration

  • QMix for every player, so they can control their mix levels from their iPhone while recording
  • Make your mix environment more accurate through Smaart analysis and StudioLive’s EQ on the master bus
  • Use Spectral Analysis to head off Phase problems
  • Now with Studio One 3 Artist…and through October 31st, Studio One 3 Professional! (more on this below)

 

Benefits of the Studio One / StudioLive Connection

The StudioLive AI mixers and Studio One 3 play very nicely together. In fact, any settings you make in the StudioLive’s Fat Channel during recording are non-destructive—these settings can be imported into your Studio One session for additional tweaking during your mix process. Furthermore, StudioOne includes template configurations for all of our mixers and interfaces, so once you’ve connected the StudioLive to your computer and fired up Studio One, you’ve only got to make about two clicks before you’re recording. Smart stuff!  

With all the additional effects, instruments, editing and Sound Design capabilities (like parallel processing FX chains) that come with the auto upgrade to Studio One 3 Professional.  The StudioLive Production Suite is the ultimate solution for your recording studio (while still an incredible solution for live sound production and recording).

This offer is available worldwide. Just get yourself a StudioLive AI before October 31 2015, and you’ll receive a download link for Studio One 3 Professional in your my.presonus.com account when you register your mixer.

Randal Walker Chooses StudioLive for David Ellefson (Megadeth) AudioBook

[This just in from Randal Walker of 22 Media Productions, who recently used his StudioLive to record David Ellefson, bassist of Megadeth, for the audiobook narration of his autobiography, “My Life With Deth.“]
This is our third book project. The first was David’s book Unsung, then we did the audio version of his book Making Music Your Business. We also did a movie called Battlefield of the Mind that David narrated.
All three of these projects were tracked using a Studiolive 16.4.2 AI.
Being a PreSonus user, I was excited to put the new AI board to use, and David’s latest project was the perfect chance to do so.
We recorded straight into StudioOne Professional 2 ,and the final project was mastered in Studio One as well.
My reason for using the StudioLive AI? Ease of use, and it s sounds great. Very clean-sounding.
The audiobook version of My life with Deth should be coming out by end of June.
