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.
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.
[This just in from Donyea via YouTube. He’s put together a great video on mixing drums in Studio One that I really thought was worth a look and listen. Have at it! He says he’s got more videos like these brewing, so why not take a second to head over to his channel and subscribe. ]
It’s been a while since you’ve heard about what I’ve been doing. I’ve been doing lots of records, and a good bit of film scoring. All with Studio One of course—Amazing! I’ve posted a video walkthrough of me mixing some live urban funk drums with of Studio One as well—I thought your community might enjoy it.
Join Justin Spence as he takes you on a tour of our John Storyk-designed recording studio at the new PreSonus headquarters in Baton Rouge! We’ve got the ADL 700 Rack of Doom, triple-paned iso booths, and a stunning live room. We’ve had special guests come by lately, including Reba’s band and George Straight’s production crew. We’ll show in-studio performances and interviews from them, and who knows what else? Tune in!
Compression is an oft-misunderstood and sometimes over-used effect that enjoys (?) a wealth of online forum punditry. Sonic Sense has done an exemplary job here in plainly illustrating the rudiments of compression while cutting the crap. This video begins by demonstrating exactly what the basic compressor controls do, and then follows up with audible examples of the compressor being applied during tacking AND in a full mix, so you can very clearly hear the effect applied in the context of a full song. Demos include vocals, snare, and bass.
Thanks to Sonic Sense for not only clearing up some of the mysteries of compression, but also for choosing the ADL 700 as the right tool for the job.
