Join Justin Spence as we get a visit from Terence Higgins and a few of his friends! The last time we had Terence come by, we broadcast nearly the entire production of “Swamp Grease II.” It remains one of our most-watched PreSonus LIVE episodes of all time.

Alongside Terence, we’ll have producer Wendel Tilly, Erica Falls,  and Andy Bourgeois together at the new PreSonus studio to record three full songs for Erica’s new album.

These are world-class players—don’t miss this one!

Oklahoma’s John Fullbright is a songwriter’s songwriter, the kind of guy that writes lyrics that make other songwriters cry “Why didn’t I think of that?” John delivers his road-weathered ballads from a strong heart—one that’s got a more than a few miles on it, and more than a few left. The man’s a straight shooter; case-in-point, the new record, available now on Nimbit, is appropriately titled Songs.

Despite being a Grammy-nominated songwriter,  killer vocalist, guitarist, pianist, and harmonica player, he is only kind of good at dominoes.

‘Songs’ is a warm, winning and plainspoken Americana album that builds on the authority and charm of ‘From the Ground Up’ not by musical-muscle flexing, but by its clarity and simmering intensity.”
— Jim Fusilli, The Wall Street Journal

The InfoComm exhibition, June 18-20, is where A/V manufacturers from the world over all converge on the strip, and bring their latest and greatest. It’s where new products get announced and incredible new technologies are showcased. It’s not quite as loud as NAMM, but there is a constant clattering din produced by 30,000 jaws hitting the ground at once when folks get a look at some new curved 3D television or food replicator.

We’ve got something brewing for InfoComm ourselves, BTW. Stay tuned to our website and social profiles, or just take us up on the offer and come visit us in person at booth C11341.

[This just in from Mark Edward Lewis, a film composer and post-production supervisor with a lifetime of pro audio experience.]

Hey PreSonus!

I got to tell you, I went out into the shop to test that Temblor 10 this afternoon.

We have a 50,000 square foot shop, and I was testing it to see if the build’s hardware would rattle with some significant low-end pink noise in our various positions around the exhibit. Fortunately, it didn’t, but I had about 30 men stop their work and get nervous.  Many came over to find the source of that low-frequency rumble that was literally smashing the shop into fear of a literal earthquake. It’s pretty impressive—a single T10 in that space—and it’s all we could hope for in this application. It performed flawlessly, venting its heat without trouble. It did a great job of rumbling the floor in the briefing room when we put the port in the cable space. It’s amazing, and it certainly outperforms my JBL 15 with 2700 watts of power.

I know. Doesn’t seem right. But that’s what it does.

Furthermore, the included orchestral samples—recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios—sound like the real deal because they are the real deal. And there are plenty more audio expansions available as your needs grow, including everything from contrabass saxophones to vibra-slap. Last but not least, Notion’s support is a beacon of incredible of customer service, and you’ll enjoy an ever-growing, always-helpful community of users over on the Notion forum.
