[This just in from PreSonus Artist and hybrid drummin' badass Brian Botkiller]

Hi guys,

I wanted to share with you a great story about my StudioLive 24.4.2 for a gig I was running front of house for the other night.

I got to the venue, and found that there was an old Behringer console there, which I soon worked out to be a serious failure. The musician I was working with was named Willy Porter, and he was very specific about what he wanted in his mix. I knew I needed to make this happen for him, so I went back to my studio and got my 24.4.2, and set it up in the venue with only 40 minutes to doors. I dialed his mix in immediately, using my ipad while mixing in the room, as the console was off in a small booth. I then made custom mixes for his sets, and I was able to record the entire set in Studio One on my laptop for him. He was absolutely floored at how easily I was able to do this, and the quality of the mix was amazing.  He said the built-in reverb was the best and most tunable he’d ever heard in a mixer, and that he’d never had a better experience with a mixer. He was quickly made a PreSonus convert!
I just wanted to share this with you, as I think it is a testament to the quality of what you make.  No other product could have done this with the ease and speed that I was able to make use of with the 24.4.2.

MIXING is MASTERING!

It is? Really?
It is for Justin! He’s experienced a little revelation of late. Thanks to the Studio One’s Project page, the once-clear line between mixing and mastering processes has started to blur. He has kindly decided to share his secrets—with YOU!

[This just in from DJ Slack!]
“Recently, I bought a PreSonus BlueTube DP V2 to use as a warmer for my DJ equipment kit. Last night I performed at a medium-sized art gallery with the new equipment for the first time, and the effects were both profound and fantastic. The BlueTube added a whole new dimension to my overall sound, creating stronger, richer bass, and it filled the space with a deeper, more intimate audio personality than I have ever been able to produce without it. It’s all about the feeling of the moment for me as a DJ, and that means more than just playing music, but creating a mood, and last night I was able to achieve a whole new type of intensity and energy. The PreSonus BlueTube DP V2 is now the most important and essential piece of gear in my signal path, and will be a permanent, much-appreciated addition to my gear kit. I absolutely recommend that anybody playing digital-based music get one of these right away, the effects are astounding!”

[This just in from Serin Hong, Assistant Manager at Sama Sound, our hardworking distributor in Korea!]

Hello PreSonus, this is Serin. How is everything going with you?

We successfully finished our Studio One seminar series, with a new class on every Saturday for the last six weeks. It went from Feb. 16 to Mar. 23, and everyone including myself really enjoyed all the seminars. We had different subjects for each seminar, and all the professional presenters brought and shared their knowledge and experience with Studio One.

 

We give you a massive thumbs up! What a great software. Thank you all at PreSonus. You guys are amazing.

The music below was the class material of the last class with Hyunjoon Lee. All the tracks are MIDI and sequenced in Studio One.

 

Best regards,
Serin Hong
