The PreSonus Music Creation Suite recording kit is a complete solution for classrooms, school labs, churches, and home studios! This special all-PreSonus system combines an AudioBox USB interface with Studio One Artist music-production software, Notion music-notation and composition software, the PS49 USB MIDI keyboard, HD3 monitoring headphones, an M7 large-diaphragm condenser microphone, a free Nimbit account, a powered USB hub, and all necessary cables and mounts.
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
This just in from Peter Scott of P C Scott Audio Productions, who just took his StudioLive on a Tour of the Tropics! You can read more about the Tour of the Tropics in our initial blog post on the matter, but the short version is that it’s a great tour of country music artists in Fiji, with the added bonus of StudioLive training!]
Here’s some new photos from the event.
That’s right! We’re offering FREE TICKETS to anyone who wants to attend the InfoComm show in La$ Vega$. For flights and hotel, you’re on your own. All you have to do is click here to get your ticket.
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.

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.
If you get a Sceptre S6 studio monitor before June 30, we’ll throw in a second one for half price! We figured the chances are that if you’re interested in a Sceptre, chances are you’re really going to want another one. They’re like socks, which is where the comparisons to footwear end.
But why would you want ’em?
[UPDATE! This offer has been extended through June 2014 because we like you so much, and also to celebrate Notion’s appearance in Apple’s stellar new “Your Verse” campaign!]
We’ve been taking advantage of a lot of excuses to celebrate lately. We just had a big ol’ shindig to christen our new facility, JazzFest is going off like a roman candle, we just kicked off our shiny new online software marketplace, and Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner.
It would be selfish of us to keep all of the celebrations to ourselves, however, so we decided to extend a deal your way as well. For the month of May 2014, we’re selling Notion 4 for a whopping 50% off, down to$49.99 from $99.99. Click here to take advantage of it!
If you aren’t already familiar with Notion, here’s what you should know: Notion is the best option available for digital composition. First of all, it’s very intuitive to use, and keeps the user only a click or two away from whatever feature is required; no time wasted schlogging through nested menus. 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.
Here’s s’more bulletpoints: http://www.presonus.com/community/blog/index.php/2014/05/05/save-50-on-notion-in-may-2014/
Here’s a handy little video overview of what a powerhouse Notion is. If you’re ready to jump into the best digital composing solution available, why not do it for half price?
Looking to step up your game? Interested in cashing some of those pitch-perfect checks that Melodyne writes? Are you ready to heed the call of 3rd-party VST compatibility? Perhaps you’re ready to start mastering your own work using Studio One Professional’s Project page.
Well, there’s never been a better time than right ol’ now, because we’re offering 25% off of upgrades to Studio One Producer and Studio One Professional. For a complete look at which upgrade might be right for you, click here to view a feature-for-feature breakdown.
Let’s set aside prosaic marketing puffery for a moment and take a good, hard look at some nice, clean numbers.
If you were among the wise who picked up Studio One Artist for $5 during the Cinco de Mayo sale we had a while back (I think it was in early May), and you get the upgrade to Professional for the discounted price of $225, you’ve spent $230 for what would have cost you nearly $400 if had you bought Studio One Professional as a standalone purchase at a time when we were feeling less charitable. That’s a total savings of $170, which is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
This deal is available for digital downloads at the shiny new online PreSonus shop. But, if you’re feeling analog, we won’t get in the way. If a boxed copy is more your speed, then our ever-lovin’ dealers are participating in our little discount-a-thon as well.
