PreSonus Blog

SLAIPA_Offer_Digitial_Flyer_3-3-15We thought you should know that for a limited time—until March 31st, 2015—music retailers across the US are offering a monster rebate on the StudioLive AI Loudspeakers:

  • Buy two, and save $500

  • Buy four, save $1000

 

No matter how you slice it, that’s a savings of $250 a piece for some incredible speakers. The StudioLive AI PAs feature our Active coaxial loudspeaker design, as well as sophisticated networking and DSP. With free PreSonus SL Room Control software, you can configure, tune, and monitor networked StudioLive AI loudspeakers from anywhere in the venue—Click here for a video on that. You can even visually display the room layout on a laptop or iPad!

But the StudioLive AI Loudspeakers aren’t just about brain—there’s a lot of brawn here, too. And when it’s time to put some boom in your room, these speakers offer irresponsibly high power—without the breakup and distortion typically associated with chest-resonating high volume. For more details on the minds behind the StudioLive AI Loudspeakers, click here for an interview with Dave Gunness.

But don’t take it from us. Check out some of these reviews:

[This just in from the Press Office of MIDIMusic ProAudio, our distributor in Italy!]

Today, Midi Music has hosted an important event for the Italian key dealers featuring the two main new products recently introduced by PreSonus: The new generation of StudioLive RM Series Rackmount mixers, and the new range of StudioLive AI PA Loudspeakers. About 50 retailers and operators, as well as journalists from Italian commercial audio magazines attended the event.

Francesco Galarà, Midi Music’s new product advisor for the Pro Audio division, described the philosophy and technical characteristics of the RM series, focusing on the unique features and intuitive ease-of-use offered by UC Surface. He also addressed the versatility that makes StudioLive RM16AI and RM32AI suitable for applications in different fields: live sound, studio recording, radio and TV Broadcast, and system integration.

After going deep into the specific details of CoActual and Temporal Equalization technologies, it then has been the turn of the set of StudioLive AI PA speakers.

We conducted a listening test, covering various genres of music from pop to rock, from the classics to jazz and then—the icing on the cake—Tchaikovsky’s famous “Waltz of the Flowers,” which was very suitable for highlighting the magnitude of the StudioLive AI Loudspeakers’ dynamic response, linearity and definition playback—all without compromise at any listening level. The clarity and definition immediately captured the attention and curiosity of the audience, who remained long after the demo with many questions and insights about the features and capabilities of both products.

The event was followed by a nice dinner party, with typical Italian seafood and a fine Piedmont Hills wine selection, offering the participants another opportunity to continue to deepen the discussion about technical and commercial aspects of PreSonus products.

ToFree-iPad_300x300_10-01-14_jn01 the point: Buy a StudioLive AI rig before December 31, 2014, and we’ll give you an iPad for free—but you have to promise that you’ll install SL Room Control on it. Why?

SL Room Control grants you fingertip, wireless access from your iPad to the advanced DSP processing of the StudioLive AI loudspeakers. Click here to get all the details on why SL Room Control is amazing, but here’s the brief version:

  • Quickly customize your PA for any venue – compensate for room anomalies, create time-align delay systems, eliminate feedback, and apply limiting, notch filtering, or whatever else meets the acoustic demands of the venue.
  • Adjust FIR filters, alignment, and crossover settings on a per-speaker basis. Every speaker in your system can be tuned ideally for its application.
  • Edit, save, recall, and share speaker-setup parameters for when you return to the venue in a few months. You can even group speakers in order to manage specific parts of the system, then save all settings for the entire system in a single preset.
  • Monitor speaker performance in real-time, including thermal levels, over-excursion, and hot signals headed into the converters.

 

So how’s this deal work?

This offer is good for those who purchase both a pair (2) of StudioLive 18sAI subwoofers AND a pair (2) of either StudioLive 312AIStudioLive 315AI, or StudioLive 328AI between the dates of November 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014.

Save your receipt! You’ll need it. You’ll also need this rebate form, which also contains some lawyer-appeasing leagalese-ing. Fill it out, send it in, and you’re good to go.

 

Still not sure these are the right speakers for you? Check out this review of the from Jersey Jonny, a Sweetwater customer.

[This just in from Byron Gaither, our very own consummate audio expert and Studio One know-it-all!]

Here are some photos from the 2nd L.A. PreSonus Meetup. We had an open mic for anyone to perform on. We recorded them via Capture, and the entire show was run through the StudioLive 32.4.2AI and StudioLive AI PA speakers. We were then able to open up their songs in Studio One for quick mixes. This is only the second event like this we’ve done, and we had double the turnout of the first!
If you live in the Los Angeles area and are interested in PreSonus, industry networking, or both, you should come on out to the next event; they are hosted monthly. You can learn more and sign up at our Meetup.com page by clicking here.

[This just in from Jason Andreasen, Executive Director of Baton Rouge Gallery!]

Hey PreSonus! I just wanted to say thank you for your support of Baton Rouge Gallery and its Movies & Music on the Lawn series. This past weekend we were, as you know, pleased to screen “The Man Who Laughs” with an original score from Matsy. The weather was perfect and we had an audience of over 400 on hand for the event!

We’ve gotten such wonderful feedback at the gallery about the event. I know we had a number of people use the free passes, so I’m assuming that a number of PreSonus staff/clients were able to come and enjoy the evening.

Again, on behalf of the artists, staff and Board of Directors at BRG, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to you and everyone at PreSonus for the generous support. I hope that you are as proud of the partnership as we are. I’ve attached some photos of the event.

Thank you!

Jason Andreasen
Executive Director
Baton Rouge Gallery

I bet you know one of those bassists who flat-out refuses to play out of anything other than an 8×10 refrigerator of a bass cab from 1980. We all know that guy. Think about how trashed the tolex is on that thing. Sure, the cabinet sounds great and all, but after 34 years of getting tossed in and out of vans, it looks more or less like the product of an over-ambitious underachiever who got a C- in high school wood shop. Props to the guy for sticking to his guns, but you’re a little past that now, for the same reason you no longer wear jeans with holes in ’em, right? Besides, think of the loss in re-sale value.

Enter the StudioLive Dust Cover AI. Until September 30, 2014, these handsome devils are free with purchase of any pair of StudioLive AI Loudspeakers, so you can protect your investment without investing in your investment protector. Keep your StudioLive dry and dust-free while locking in that new-speaker scent for as long as possible. Purchased separately, these covers range in price from $119.95 to $139.95.  Click to get the Free Speaker Cover Rebate Form.

Note that we’ve got the dev team hard at work at offering remote zipper control of StudioLive Dust Cover AI via VSL Remote. This feature is planned for a 2015 release via a Dust Cover Firmware Update*.

This offer is available world-wide. If you’re in the US, click here to find a dealer. Folks outside the US can find a dealer by clicking here.

When Tiny Frog Media is involved, the hits can’t/won’t stop. Here, Greg takes a close look at the entire line of StudioLive AI PA Loudspeakers. His talk-through is pretty handy if you’re trying to decide exactly which StudioLive AI PA speaker is right for you and your applications. While he addresses high-tech matters such as power, DSP, and software integration, he also addresses some of the equally-enthralling low-tech features offered by these speakers, including threaded pole-mount adapters, dollies, and dust jackets. Give a look-see.
