[This just in from Luis "LH Dub" Henrique, who is using the StudioLive 16.4.2 for live remixes of his band's dub tracks! It's not often that we see a StudioLive in the "mixer as instrument" application—but here it is! Check out the vid!]

Hello PreSonus! My name is Luis “LH Dub” Henrique, a Brazilian who is passionate about music production and mixing technology. In particular, I love mixing tracks with Jamaican rhythms to create new songs. I have always needed a high-quality interface in order to create my songs, and I have finally found it in the PreSonus StudioLive 16.4.2. It has everything to fulfill my needs, and meets my high standards of quality while offering a great variety of tools. It was love at first sight! I had no previous experience with digital mixers, and I was a bit afraid that I couldn’t manage it, but as soon as my 16.4.2 arrived home I quickly realized that StudioLive is a very easy interface to work with.

Personally, I really like reverb and delay effects. So when I first experienced the effects available on the 16.4.2, I was totally amazed. The delay filter is incredible. I also have been using StudioLive to record live bands and it does a great job! The compressor, gate and all other tools are very well placed. It’s easy to handle and work with.

The StudioLive 16.4.2 is also very resistant  By accident, it has fallen from 1.5 m height and it still works perfectly… only few scratches tell the story!

Because of my wonderful experience with StudioLive, I have decided to purchase only PreSonus products in the future due to the fact that I am very pleased to work with this equipment that, besides having a great design, has the best quality you can get.

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!”

John Mlynczak, Education Market Manager for PreSonus, shows us some of the basics of running live sound AND recording a school jazz band with the AudioBox 1818VSL. He shares his channel breakdown and monitoring setup.

With the AudioBox 1818VSL, you can track the entire band, and send students their own parts for study—or whatever submix you feel is best!
