Take a look at VSL Remote and QMix. Then, add to that that we’re nestled waaaay down down here in Baton Rouge. If you detect a pattern, it is likely remoteness. Getting a StudioLive installed in your venue or house of worship is a day to celebrate for certain, but once in a while you’ve got to pull up stakes, notify your emergency contacts, lace up your boots, and leave town. In an ideal world, your StudioLive should go with you.

It can, because free bag. While we laud Bob Tudor’s effort spent trying to figure out a way to add cross-platform compatible satcheling technologies to the StudioLives via firmware update, we had to cut him off when his dev time hit the three month mark. So, while we acknowledge that this is something of a compromise… hey, free bag.

From October 1, 2013, through December 31, 2013, purchasers of the StudioLive 16.0.2 should save their receipts and then fill out this quick’n’easy form:

Click here to get the Rebate Form!

… and then we will send you your handsome, steely-grey StudioLive carrying backpack for FREE, which is cross-compatible with blankets, cables, ziplocked bags of freeze-dried gumbo, or whatever else you can fit in it. Please give us a few weeks to process and ship your backpack.

Oh, and tell your friends. If a bunch of you get together with your newfound cases, you can have yourselves a FreeBagger Party and then use that ticket to run for public office in November.

Ah, good ol’ AudioBox. It’s like a cross between an interface, pack mule, and member of the band. Ever the dependable ally, the AudioBox VSL interfaces have carried many an Artist through countless recording endeavors with reliability, consistency, and zero-latency monitoring. Perhaps that’s why I can’t find a user review for the AudioBox with less than 4/5 stars on the big online dealer websites.

In the spirit of complete solutions, we’ve always been happy to include Studio One Artist with the AudioBox VSL series. But in the spirit of completer solutions—and reliable friendyness—we’re tacking on a bonus for a li’l while.

From now through Dec 31st, 2013, you can get that included copy of Studio One Artist 2.6 upgraded to Studio One Producer 2.6 when purchasing the AudioBox 22VSL, AudioBox 44VSL, or the AudioBox 1818VSL. Both Studio One Artist and the upgrade to Studio One Producer are worth $99, so, that’s like getting $200 of free software. You’re welcome, and after all, what are friends for? Studio One Producer includes significant feature upgrades from Artist, including MP3 import/export and virtual instrument support.

If you live in the USA, click here to find a list of dealers in your area. International buyers can click here.

This rebate offer is available until Dec. 31, 2013. Save your receipt, physical or emailed, as you’ll need it when the time comes to claim your upgrade via the handy form.

Click here to get the form!

Your upgrade activation key will be provided via email; no physical product will be shipped. Allow four to six weeks for delivery. Processing time is subject to change depending on hurricane or Saints game tailgate party traffic congestion.

PureMix.Net just completed this incredible three-part video series on mixing Jay Stolar in Studio One. The trailer is embedded below, but the entire video series is available over on PureMix.Net. Get some great insights on recording and mixing a live show from Fab Dupont!

Hey, why not save a little money while you’re at it? PureMix is kindly offering PreSonus users 40% this great tutorial. Hurry, this offer ends Oct. 8, 2013!

Click here and use the coupon code: StudioOneRox 

Fab’s video goes into great detail of the entire process, including the use of both native and third-party plug-ins for Studio One, microphone selection, and placement.

Fab DuPont says: “Studio One was perfect for this project, because I knew we would be using several different kinds of interfaces and Studio One works great with all of them. Also, it’s a great tool to do both production and mixing at the same time and i knew since we had to work fast that we may have to back to recording in the middle of the mixing process.”

Sonic Sense Pro Audio is SO GOOD to us.

In this new video, they open with a nice breakdown of the workflow and feature upgrades in the new StudioLive 32.2.4AI as compared to the original StudioLive 24.4.2. They touch on Active Integration, computer-free wireless connectivity, Capture 2.1, Mute Groups, Scenes, Fat Channel updates, and more.

But they don’t stop there. They run a multi-track recording from the FoxField Four through BOTH mixers, and provide an A/B test of the stereo mix from both mixers, so you can hear the sonic improvements in the StudioLive 32.4.2AI for yourself!

Great work, guys, and thanks for your support!

WHA DAT?

September 28,2013

Spotted this on Peter’s desk. In Baton Rouge, team spirit knows no bounds, but we had to draw the line the last time Rick showed up in full purple and gold body paint. We told him that we sent him home for a shower, but fact is it was really posed a significant health risk.

Saints fans, don’t get your hopes up… this is a one-off customization.

CRAIG ANDERTON
Presenting in the Hartley Vey Workshop Theatre on Friday, Oct 25 at 1:30 p.m.
and in the Main Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 11:00 a.m.

We don’t need to tell you Craig Anderton is an authority on all things music tech, but did you know one of his primary passions has always been guitar? The author of 21st Century Guitar digs into the nitty-gritty details of getting a killer guitar tone on your recordings. Like a master class for recording guitar, Craig will take you through it all using Studio One, covering both acoustic and electric guitar. Topics will include miking techniques vs. going direct, layering, EQ, utilizing multi-band chorus, advanced amp simulation, and much more. Space is limited, get there early!

As a top-tier authority on music and technology, Craig’s resume is too darn big to even fit on our website… but we do have room to say this: He has played on, produced, or mastered more than 20 major label recordings; and played guitar and keyboards on many pop-music sessions in New York. He founded HarmonyCentral.com, has written for Electronic Musician, Keyboard, Sound on Sound (UK), Rolling Stone, and Guitar Player, as well as for himself—26 books and counting.

A while back Rodney raised the bar for live webcasts with this great collaboration with ScanProAudioTV.  We really need to work with those guys again. I mean seriously, they have a green screen and everything. 

Make a sandwich and strap in; this one clocks in at about 45:00, but that just means there’s no stone un-turned in this thorough investigation into our latest and greatest.

Of all the Throwback Thursday submissions I’ve received, this is far and away my favorite. Blurrily pictured below is our National Sales Director and all-around trooper Mark Stone, alongside Iron Maiden’s undead mascot, Eddie! 

Like Eddie, details surrounding how this photo came to be were eroded somewhere in time, likely taken during Mark’s wasted years in retail. But, rumor has it they involved an in-store signing by Maiden, followed by explicit instructions “not to mess with” Eddie.

These instructions were promptly followed by Eddie getting paraded around the mall to the delight and terror of children, chagrin from parents, and ended with a stellar footnote on Mark’s resume.

This just in from Mark Stone, Justin Spence, and Johnny McAndrews. Looks like a good time had by all, thanks to The Rocketboys for coming out and performing as well!

We’re touring the new StudioLive AI digital mixers and the new StudioLive AI PA Loudspeakers, and so far the response has been overwhelmingly positive!
