Baton Rouge residents: PreSonus is partnering with The Blood Center for a blood drive on Tuesday, May 21, from 9 a.m. to 1:20 p.m. There is currently a national shortage of blood, and sadly, deposits made to a blood bank do not accrue interest—so the Red Cross needs all the help they can get! Just a pint of blood can save up to three lives!
Please Click HERE to ensure you are eligible to donate. It is important to eat a good breakfast before donating blood and be sure to bring your photo ID!
The blood mobile will be located behind the Bon Carre buildling, near the PreSonus Audio Electronics entrance.
7257 Florida Blvd.
Baton Rouge, LA 70806
If you are interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm a time slot, and here’s some handy tips from the Red Cross for a successful donation.
Generous souls not suffering from trypanophobia will walk away with a bandage on their arm, a song in their heart, and a killer PreSonuSphere T-shirt!
Hey PreSonus! Wanted to let you know I’ll be speaking and answering questions at the ASCAP Expo in Hollywood, April 18 – April 20. You don’t have to be an ASCAP member to attend. Other speakers there will be Katy Perry, Steven Tyler, Akon, RJD2, Jill Scott, Lionel Ritchie, and Josef Gordon-Levitt!
Also, the next Music Success Workshops are being planned for Charlotte, NC in June, and Los Angeles in July. Exact dates and locations will be announced soon. People can sign up here to get the details once they are in place.
I also have some new Music Success Nuggets with great information on career advancement for FREE—people can sign up at JoeSolo.com.
Do you like your music a little bit electronic? And a lot experimental? If so, this may be an event for you, and in case you can’t make it to MIT, you can check out the steam on April 13 at 8pm EST.
Ramon Castillo, who leads the event, says:
“We’re using the StudioLive 16.0.2 as a super flexible interface. We’ve got a chain of moogerfoogers, piano, violin, iPad, Dave Smith Tetra, Mbira and more all hooked into the mixer. Some processing is done using a Mac running Ableton Live, and the rest is done with the MoogerFoogers and the iPad.”
“The routing varies greatly between each piece do we take heavy advantage of scene programming. Sound checks couldn’t be done without SL remote on the iPad.”
“I may try to get some good video of our setup on our concert on the 20th. I haven’t begun to promote that show yet, but the 1602 will be used in much the same way.”

The concert will feature works for electronically manipulated piano, analog synthesis, the Kronos Quartet Drum Machine, dynamically looped mbira, live video and more. Our performances successfully merge the art of acoustic music with the mystique of audio technology.
This event on April 13 promises to deliver the same mix of ambitious musical forces.
Selection of works to include:
We have a LOT of promos going on this month. Even we’re having a hard time keeping track of them all. That’s all Rick’s fault, really. But it’s because he likes you all so much! Here’s the gist of it:

Studio One Professional 2.5, $100 off through April! Get with the best for a low low price! This is an instant rebate that will be available through your local PreSonus dealer or StudioOne.PreSonus.Com.
Save a whopping $50 on the PreSonus Studio Channel. This is another easy instant rebate available at your local PreSonus dealer.
Last, but certainly not least, if you upgrade from any other version of Studio One to Studio One Professional 2.5, you are entitled to the Simon Phillips Session Tracks drum loop library for FREE! Click here for the rebate form so you can grab your copy—ASAP!
The StudioLive 24.4.2 and Studio One 2.5 work so great together. Twin Killers music has a very eclectic sound palette and during the recording process the creative flow is quickly shifting through ideas and sonic spaces. The mixer/DAW combo allows me to get sounds dialed in quickly, without a rack full of gear, print awesome sounds and keep the creative process flowing. The layout always makes sense and is very clean. You’d be hard pressed to get so much power out of any other two tools while always remaining to stay in such a musical headspace!”

Hey PreSonus team!
As my flight lifts off from the Baton Rouge runway, a silvery trickle of sunlight glints along the plane’s wing (of which I have a perfect view) and suddenly splashes into my eyes with the blinding sting of organic hotel shampoo. Lying back, I think about the events from the last two days and wonder if I’ll ever be able to digest all of the info and experiences I feasted on like Thursday’s jambalaya…
Regular readers of this column know that in addition to the techniques and philosophies discussed here, we also cover a lot of different gear from a variety of manufacturers. Microphones to headphones, keyboards to plug-ins; if it helps you make better music and recordings we try to cover it. That said, there are a few companies whose products have been featured here numerous times. None more so than those from PreSonus (www.presonus.com).
Most recently, we looked at their StudioLive 16.0.2 mixer and StudioOne 2 digital audio workstation software. We highlighted these particular products for three specific reasons: the amount of power being placed into the hands of the “average” musician or recordist, the company’s very reasonable price points and the ingenuity and elegance with which their solutions are rendered.
When I heard they were hosting a two-day event called PreSonuSphere, an interactive conference where users would not only attend information-drenched presentations and receive hands-on training with PreSonus’ line of mixers and software solutions, but would actually be able to interact with the developers of these products as well, I knew I had to go.
