While studio monitors are the de facto standard for listening to your work while you work on it, not all of us have a living situation that allows us to fire off our Sceptre S8 and Temblor T10 combo at full volume all the time. Ever live in an apartment with paper-thin walls? Ever have a roommate with one of those crazy work schedules, like 9 a.m.-5 p.m? We know what it’s like, and for scenarios like that there’s nothing wrong with mixing on headphones.
Beyond that, let’s not forget that it’s important to reference your mixes on headphones to make sure they translate well to the format. After all, we’re fifteen years into the post-iPod world, and more and more listeners are growing up conditioned to listening to music on personal devices with headphones and/or earbuds. Making sure your mixes sound good on these devices is more important than ever!
For November 2016 only, customers in the USA can take 50% off of the already low price of our great-sounding HD7 headphones. They’re warm and clear, and also comfy—you can wear them for long mix sessions without getting that “octopus on my brain” headache that other, more snug headphones sometimes impart. Get some!
What are you waiting for! Half price studio-grade headphones—get some!
Join Ray Tanzten, Ace Baker, and Big Sam’s Funky Nation on October 20 at 2pm CST as we show off, celebrate, and explore the brand new Studiolive 32, our incredible flagship digital mixer that we’ve been working on for quite some time, now. We’ll discuss the all-new effects processing and redesigned Fat Channel, FlexMixes, AVB, and onboard multitrack recording—with NO COMPUTER REQUIRED!
We’ll have Q&A at the end, of course, and we’ll be giving away some stuff, including Studio One 3 Professional and a Eris 44 monitors. All told, you’ll have four chances to win!
Signing up for this event below ensures you’ll get an e-mail reminder on the day of the show. You can tune in at http://www.presonus.com/videos/presonuslive on the 20th.
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!

Take a trip back in time with Nori Ubukata’s 20th Century Sound Box and rediscover the legendary analog sounds of the 70s and 80s.
Famed Japanese sound designer and synth/theremin artist Nori Ubukata recreated some of the most memorable sounds by electronic music artists such as Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Vangelis and Wendy Carlos. The set contains a total of 111 presets and Instrument+FX presets (adding reverb, EQ and other effects). Also included are 50 Musicloops with sound elements showcasing the best presets in musical context.
The PreSonus® Notion™ 6.0.409 update includes:
Your copy of Notion 6 should auto-update next time you open it. Alternatively, you can find the download links in your My PreSonus account; simply log in and go to My Products>Software.
Hot 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 discounted Studio One Add-Ons include the Presence XT Editor, Channel Strip Collection, and the recently released Convology Vintage Reverb Library. Our friends at Studio One Expert recently posted their review of the Convology Vintage Reverb Library which you can read HERE. Long story short, it’s awesome.
The discounted Notion expansion libraries, or bundles, include Guitar, Saxophone, Strings , Percussion, Woodwinds and more, all preformed by talented musicians from all over the globe!
This offer is available only on shop.presonus.com from July 30 till July 31! Check it out while you still can.
The discount will show up during checkout.
So Merry Christmas to you and yours…
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!
