PreSonus Blog

SLAIPA_PriceDrop_Digital_Flyer_04-20-15_RR03The title says it all, really. We’ve slashed prices Voorhees-style of the robust StudioLive AI Loudspeakers. This is not a rebate or a limited promo, just a good old-fashioned permanent price drop.  The StudioLive AI PAs feature our Active coaxial loudspeaker design, as well as sophisticated networking and DSP. With free PreSonus SL Room Control software, you can configure, tune, and monitor networked StudioLive AI loudspeakers from anywhere in the venue—Click here for a video on that. You can even visually display the room layout on a laptop or iPad!

Anyhow, here’s the price drops:

  • StudioLive 312AI: was $1,499.95, now $1249.95
  • StudioLive 18sAI: was $1,499.95, now $1249.95
  • StudioLive 328AI: was $1,599.95, now $1349.95
  • StudioLive 315AI: was $1,699.95, now $1449.95

Still one the fence? Check out some of these reviews of the StudioLive PA Loudspeaker fam':

FSL_AI_Rebate_Digital_Flyer_4-20-15_RR03rom now until June 30, you can save up to $500 on the StudioLive 32.4.2AI and StudioLive 24.4.2AI. There’s no rebate form to print out only to lose it under the seat of the car, no clipping of UPC barcodes. Just buy a mixer and you’ll save enough money for a new TV right at the register. Probably not a 4K TV, but a TV nonetheless.

(Incidentally, we’re also offering a $200 rebate on the StudioLive RM16AI. You can read more about that by clicking here.)

The StudioLive 24.4.2AI just won a prestigious MIPA award, and several publications have been singing its praises of late. And thanks to a recent firmware update, the StudioLive AI Console mixers playvery nicely with our RM-series rackmount mixers—you can connect the two via a simple CAT5 cable and sell your clunky old copper snake to some dork on Craigslist. (Click here for the RM Applications guide for more on that.)

Pick one up, save a few hundred bucks, and experience remote iPad control, Active Integration, and massively powerful onboard effects. You’ll wonder how you lived without it.

RobScallon over on YouTube just posted this killer video of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.” In it, the ode to boogymen is performed backwards and recording—which is then flipped again when the video is run in reverse. The perplexing result is that the song comes out forwards while sounding backwards. If that doesn’t make sense, just watch the video and you’ll get the drift. And watch fast for Studio One!

Teach SecondaryBig congratulations are due to the Notion team—Notion 5 was just recognized in Teach Secondary Magazine‘s April issue. Reviewer Steve Lea states, in part:

“Notion 5 is an ideal package for anyone wanting easy-to-use notation software on a budget. If you are using primarily for teaching score-writing or producing exam coursework then it has more than enough for your needs. And if you don’t need the full functions of the bigger market leaders, then it is a real winner!”

We’re in Frankfurt for MusikMesse and stopped by the local Apple Store. We were delighted to find Notion installed on iPad demo units in-store. This isn’t the first time Notion has been spotted in an Apple Store—it was included in some wall graphics a while back, coinciding with Esa-Pekka’s Salonen’s Apple advert.

We were really excited to be asked to create a special version of Notion for use in Apple Stores. The iPad has transformed the way many people create music, and it’s made the world of notation much more accessible. And now people around the world can try out composing music in their local Apple Store!

Freebo

Daniel “Freebo” Friedberg is a decorated singer/songwriter with an impressive session/sideman history, including a ten-year stint playing bass and touring with Bonnie Raitt. Other collaborators include John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, CSN, Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Michelle Shocked, Neil Young, Loudon Wainwright III, and Dr. John. He’s also a formidable tuba player.

The last few years have seen Freebo launching into a successful solo career, having released four solo albums since 1999. There’s no quick-and-easy way to pin down a singular “Freebo sound,” as his diverse solo material is suitably colored by his work with all of the above A-list names. As such, his work boasts a seasoned blend of blues, rock and folk—but closer listening reveals undertones of dixieland, reggae, and Broadway musicals.

His Nimbit store offerings include a multitude of sponsorship opportunities (you can even buy “Executive Producer” credit on his next record!) two singles, and four full-lengths, including the canine tribute album, Dog People.

Check out this very flattering and thorough review of the Ceres 4.5BT monitors from Kern Ramsdell of Home Recording Weekly. We loaned him a pair of the Ceres 4.5BT for review—and he did an excellent job.

A couple quick snippets: “The PreSonus Ceres C4.5BT monitors are incredible sounding, and you will be blown away. I know I was,” and my favorite: “it stinks that I have to send these back.” Click here to read the full review that accompanies this video.
