Wow, there’s a lot going on today. This is a long post, so let’s jump right in!
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:
New firmware is available for the entire StudioLive AI line from your my.presonus.com account, allowing for control from UC Surface 1.5.
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.
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 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 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.
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:
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.
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:
Furthermore, don’t forget that we’ve got a couple other offers that are carrying over from November until the end of 2015:
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.
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
Flexibility For Every Studio Environment
Tight Software Integration
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.
AVB Networking between StudioLive AI consoles and StudioLive RM mixers is now a reality, and to celebrate, we’re offering a limited-time deal: Own both a StudioLive AI Console and an RM Series Mixer by April 30, 2015, and you’ll get the SL-AVB-MIX Option Card FREE, which would typically set you back about three hundred bucks. If you’ve already got one of the two mixers, get the other and you’re qualified for this deal!
But that’s not all you’re saving—you’re also saving on future medical expenses by preventing damage to your back incurred by lugging around a monster copper stage snake. Those days are over. Furthermore, consider the following applications that open up to you when you get your StudioLive RM rackmount mixer talking to your StudioLive AI console mixer—with the option card, you can connect any StudioLive AI Console to any StudioLive RM Rackmount mixer.
