RM_Rebates_Digital_Flyer_7-17-15_JN01

OK, OK, we heard you. See, we got a handful of comments on our Facebook ads for our recent RM16AI rebate that—ahem—very politely inquired as to our rationale for excluding the StudioLive RM32AI from the rebate program. Thanks for checking in, guys—you raised an excellent point, and we’re sorry if those of you excited for the RM32AI felt left out.

So, with our CEO on a personal holiday for a couple weeks, and our arms sufficiently twisted by the proletariat strong-arming of Social Media, we decided to give you want you want and sneak this one under the radar. So, from now ’til the end of September, you can save $200 on the StudioLive RM16AI AND the StudioLive RM32AI. 

If you’re on the fence, read more about the RM-series by clicking here, and you can read an excellent review from FOH Online here.

“The RM-Series mixers break through the touch barrier with a compact, affordable rig that can double as a stage box (no snakes required), while offering a versatile, flexible merging of hardware and software control to form a powerful mix solution.”

This is an instant rebate with no forms to fill out because, hey, everybody hates forms.

Progression_Bundle_Digital_Flyer_7-22-15

Here’s the deal… when you buy and register an AudioBox iOne you automatically get Studio One 3 Artist, which is a tremendous value. But now through September 30th, 2015 you will also get Progression 3.

That’s a screamin’ deal…you basically get the audio interface for the price of the software…and it’s the perfect recording solution for guitarists and singer songwriters.

The AudioBox iOne allows you to record your vocals and guitar (or anything else) at a sterling 96 kHz. You can use it with Studio One 3 on your laptop or desktop computer, or record directly to your iPad using Capture Duo (which is a free download from iTunes). Capture Duo also allows you to wirelessly zap your recordings over to Studio One 3 for editing and mixing.

Once your recording is in Studio One 3, you can add all kinds of distortion, amp simulations and effects via Ampire and our other Native plug-ins. And thanks to Impact, and a nice collection of backing loops, you’ll even be able to create drum tracks and produce full songs.

Last but not least, for the more tablature-minded set, Progression 3 will allow you to create guitar and bass tablature, lead sheets, and standard sheet music with an intuitive fingerboard interface.

All told, this is a lot of power for not a lot of cash.

Production_Suite_Digital_Flyer_7-22-15

From August 1 through October 31, 2015, customers who buy any StudioLive AI console mixer will also get automatically upgraded to Studio One 3 Professional. If you’re looking for a professional studio solution (even in your very own home), this is the way to go.

StudioLive AI Mixers make a great choice for studio production work for 3 reasons: great sound, flexibility, and software integration.

Let’s Start with Great Sound

  • 96 kHz HD Recording Mode
  • XMAX Preamps
  • Burr Brown Converters
  • The same 64-bit summing, eq, and compression as Studio One 3 Professional

 

Flexibility For Every Studio Environment

  • An integrated FireWire 800 Audio Interface with LOTS of channels (48 x 34 with a StudioLive 32.4.2)
  • Inserts on each channel for integrating external gear
  • 14 Auxes for independent headphone mixes
  • Dedicated Fat Channels and effects processing processing for getting a great sound while tracking (with no latency).
  • Independent Solo Bus
  • Summing Control Room Bus
  • Talkback and more

 

Tight Software Integration

  • QMix for every player, so they can control their mix levels from their iPhone while recording
  • Make your mix environment more accurate through Smaart analysis and StudioLive’s EQ on the master bus
  • Use Spectral Analysis to head off Phase problems
  • Now with Studio One 3 Artist…and through October 31st, Studio One 3 Professional! (more on this below)

 

Benefits of the Studio One / StudioLive Connection

The StudioLive AI mixers and Studio One 3 play very nicely together. In fact, any settings you make in the StudioLive’s Fat Channel during recording are non-destructive—these settings can be imported into your Studio One session for additional tweaking during your mix process. Furthermore, StudioOne includes template configurations for all of our mixers and interfaces, so once you’ve connected the StudioLive to your computer and fired up Studio One, you’ve only got to make about two clicks before you’re recording. Smart stuff!  

With all the additional effects, instruments, editing and Sound Design capabilities (like parallel processing FX chains) that come with the auto upgrade to Studio One 3 Professional.  The StudioLive Production Suite is the ultimate solution for your recording studio (while still an incredible solution for live sound production and recording).

This offer is available worldwide. Just get yourself a StudioLive AI before October 31 2015, and you’ll receive a download link for Studio One 3 Professional in your my.presonus.com account when you register your mixer.

Studio-Grand-Banner-FINAL-1
We just released the PreSonus Studio Grand, which you can get from shop.presonus.com by clicking here. This aggressively over-sampled piano features ten distinct velocity layers and eight round-robin samples for each of the piano’s 88 keys. The result is one of the most natural and human-sounding virtual pianos available to date, containing well over 7,000 samples. We’ve also included samples of the little details that make a true piano sound different than the “piano” setting on a store-bought consumer keyboard, including note-off key release samples, pedal action, and sustain pedal resonance. These are activated during performance via the complex scripting made possible by Presence XT. The samples were recorded to some of the finest analog equipment available, and converted to digital in sterling 24-bit quality.
We’ve also included two different miking configurations. Arnd Kaiser, General Manager of PreSonus Software, states: “The main difference between PreSonus Studio Grand and other pianos is the fact that we include two independent sample sets representing two different microphone configurations. These include a matched pair of German condenser mics in the player’s perspective and a pair of fine ribbon mics placed in the listener’s perspective. This way, the user can choose or combine mic sets just like recording a real piano in a studio.” We’ve also included 21 Instrument and FX presets to get you started.
The PreSonus Studio Grand is compatible with all versions of Studio One 3 (Prime, Artist and Professional). To be clear, this is the full-featured bigger brother to the piano instrument included in the Presence XT Core library for Studio One 3 Professional and the Presence XT – Keyboards Add-on—but at ten times the depth and size! Due to incredible attention to detail, it clocks in at 5.5GB—but in the digital age, disk space is the price we pay for quality. Incidentally, competing software pianos can run you nearly triple the cost of PreSonus Studio Grand.
The Presonus Studio Grand acoustic piano is a sampler instrument for Presence XT, and compatible with all versions of Studio One 3 (Prime, Artist and Professional).

It's got a little kitty on it.

It’s got a little pixel kitty on it.

[This just in from KATFYR, who just released “Voltage“—produced entirely in Studio One! You can (and should) buy Voltage on BeatPort by clicking here. You can also listen to the track below, and check out the video interview to learn a few more details about his production tricks.]

My latest release, Voltage, was produced with Studio One 3 from start to finish. I got to take advantage of many of its newest features.

The new Arranger Track expedited the process of building the entire song structure. It enabled me to easily duplicate whole sections of the arrangement and move them around. The Scratch Pad enabled me to test how different sections interact with each other in order to find the best flow for the track.

I’ve also made good use of the new Effect Splitter feature, particularly in the bus channels for bass and synth sounds, where I was able to pinpoint certain frequencies and apply effects directly to those areas. It would nearly impossible to get the sounds I did using anything else!
