Linzey Rae, Studio One and a Crab Costume Walk into a Kitchen…

Many PreSonus customers ask, “what’s the deal with the Cajun recipes in the back of PreSonus manuals?” May seem odd coming from an audio company, agreed. The truth is, we think it’s cool. We’re a Louisiana company and we’re proud of it. Good food and good music go hand in hand, especially in Louisiana.

We thought it would be fun to combine those things so we hooked up our friend and PreSonus artist Linzey Rae from the band The Anchor with a classic Louisiana recipe for gumbo for one of her Metal Kitchen episodes. Bon Appetit!

She pronounced “andouille sausage” correctly and that makes all of us happy. Can’t wait to hear what’s next from Linzey and The Anchor! Thank you for sharing and for using Studio One!

Save a hundred bucks on the Studio 192 Mobile

H192mobile_rebate_600x600_8-5-16_nee01ot on the heels of the hit Studio 192 comes his scrappy little brother, the Studio 192 Mobile. If you’re a recordist or producer and need a grab-and-go solution for your tracking, the Studio 192 Mobile is equally at home set up on your desktop, packed in your messenger bag, or tracking in your bassist’s garage.

Hook it up to a laptop with the included Studio One DAW, and you’ll have remote software control of the preamp levels on the 192 Mobile, eliminating the need to constantly get up from your seat and tweak while establishing levels. You’ll be capturing those levels in sterling 192 kHz, by the way, and you’ve got 2 XLR jacks and 2 Line inputs to do the capturing. That’s enough for a small band or multi-channel drums, but it’s expandable via additional hardware like the Digimax DP88—so you’ve got some room to grow. Add to that advanced monitoring capabilities, word clock, and S/PDIF, and you’ve got a powerhouse in a tiny package.

Just think, you can get all that for a hundred bucks less than normal. Contact a local dealer or shop online for this no-hassle, no-paperwork instant rebate.

Oh, and hurry—this USA-only opportunity ends on Oct. 31, 2016 because missing out on this deal would be terrifying.

The Rocket Summer on taking the StudioLive RM32AI Mixer on tour!

It’s been a long road since Bryce Avary first started putting out music under the name The Rocket Summer 16 years ago. With roots in pop and alt-rock, Avary showcases his talent by writing, producing and playing instruments on all 6 of his albums. The Rocket Summer is currently on tour for their newest record Zoetic which was released in February. We recently caught up with him to see how the tour was going and how the RM32AI Mixer was working for them.

Avary’s assembled a killer live band to take his songs on the road! They’re using the RM32AI Mixer for their in ear monitoring system and mixing everything on their own. Hear more of Avary’s thoughts in the video below.


The RM32AI is obviously a perfect fit for The Rocket Summer and it may be just what you’re missing. All summer long (and then some) select dealers in the USA are offering discounts of Kozmic proportions on StudioLive mixers – See more HERE!

R65 Review from Mix Magazine

R65-02Our friends at MIX Magazine are the experts at tech and gear talk, so when they’re talking, we’re listening. Recently they wrote a stellar review of our R65 Monitors and we can’t help but agree! Thanks so much for these kind words:
“From the time I first fired up the R65s, they had a very pleasant sound. Straight out of the box, the bottom end was massive. The midrange was very clear, and the stereo image was broad, deep and very detailed. True to the expectations set by other ribbon tweeters, the top end was crisp and defined while having a very natural, realistic smoothness. When listening to acoustically recorded instruments, there was a real sense that the players were right in front of you.”
