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.

Buy an AI speaker, get free cover and free freight

September 2016 only: Buy a StudioLive AI Loudspeaker from shop.presonus.com, and we’ll cover the freight! Not only that, but we’ll also cover the cover. ai_speaker_promo_600x600_8-30-16_nee01

Get a StudioLive AI Loudspeaker of your choice delivered right to your door or place of business, including a form-fitting, fashionable dust cover that will keep them looking their best while locking in that new-speaker smell for some time.

Not sure why you should get a StudioLive AI over any other black box? Control and versatility, for starters. You can remotely EQ them to the venue via SL Room Control on your iPad. They’re equipped for wireless and wired communications over an Ethernet or Wi-Fi for control and tuning. You can also add the SL-Dante-SPK option card to create a Dante network and ditch your clunky, heavy analog snake in favor of lightweight CAT5e or CAT6 cables. Oh, and they’re loud. Imagine studio monitor quality (thanks in part to the coax drivers) at extraordinarily high volume.

But enough about us from us. Check out what Sound on Sound had to say about the StudioLive AI Loudspeakers:

“The StudioLive AI series of powered speakers represents something different from the norm for portable PA. The use of coaxial MF/HF drive units, abundant power output and serious helpings of onboard DSP make these interesting and appealing in their own right, but when teamed up with the Room Control application a whole new set of possibilities opens up, and brings ‘big rig’ functionality into the portable live-sound domain. I’ve been using them in isolation, but remember that they are part of an integrated product range, and the functionality can only increase in the future… There are systems that offer a similar level of remote DSP control, but they almost all reside in the high-end touring sector, rather than the compact PA market.”

Complete PreSonus Install by Dutchman Soundworks, LLC!

BLOG33 Our pals Adam and Dan at Dutchman Soundworks recently finished a complete PreSonus install for Victory Church in Lititz, PA. Let’s just say, victory indeed! Read more about the install and what the team had to say below.

  • What products did you choose to install and why? 

We chose to use PreSonus StudioLive 328AI for mains, StudioLive 18SAI for subs, RM32AI for the mixer with the CS18AI as a FOH controller. We also installed the Dante option cards into all compatible components. They are also using Studio One 3 for recording and virtual sound checks.

  • Why did you choose them? 

We went with all PreSonus gear for a number of reasons. The first being that the church has four campuses and all of them use PreSonus gear on one level or another. Having all their volunteers trained on similar gear throughout multiple campuses is a huge benefit to them. The gear is also easy to use making it easy to train people and also cost effective. Victory Church opened (or moved) 3 of its 4 campuses in less than 2 years so sticking to a tight budget was important. Lastly having the ability to mix and multitrack is a huge win by helping them with training volunteers through virtual soundchecks. The Dante integration provides that and is also expandable for future needs.

  • What is the benefit of choosing these PreSonus products? 

We find the PreSonus gear to be an excellent value. When we explain to a client what they can accomplish and what the price is people are generally floored. The ability to have an “all in one” mixer and multitrack recorder is huge in the church world. Aside from the mixer the AI line of speakers are absolutely incredible sounding. In my mind they compete with a much higher class of speaker than where they are priced. If anyone is on the market for a powered speaker these boxes should not be overlooked!

The Victory staff also have sung our praises:

“Using the PreSonus equipment has been a pleasure. It has made what we do on Sunday mornings much easier for our volunteers while increasing capabilities. Not to mention the system sounds fantastic! We are very pleased with the results.”

Here are some photos from the install:
