PreSonus Blog

The monitors roll out, and the reviews roll in. The PreSonus Eris monitor speakers are being met with the sort of enthusiastic reception that we previously have only associated with The Beatles or a new Star Wars picture.
Recording Magazine’s Mike Metlay Ph.D. is bona fide qualified, and we’re really excited that he’s the guy who got to review these products for Recording.  That Ph D. is in nuclear physics, BTW.  Here’s a couple pull-quotes from Mike’s review:
“PreSonus’ first studio monitors present very neat solutions to the problem of affordable, good-sounding monitoring for small studios.”
“Let’s talk price. The E5 costs a bit more per pair than a set of cheap-ass desktop computer speakers and a thumpy little one-note sub, but for your money you get monitors you can actually use for real engineering. The E8 is even more of a no-brainer: it basically allows recording musicians who want proper full-range studio monitors, but don’t yet have the budget for high-end products, to get into the game without hurting themselves.”
Readers who want to get into the nitty-gritty details of  frequency response, 12 dB/octave highpass filter options, and more, please download the full PDF of the review by clicking this sentence.

Check out this demo from Studio One hyperproducer Spud Too Tight! In this video, he’s using Studio One to demo a bold new technology called Virtual Studio Control, or VSC, which allows producers to collaborate online by streaming audio straight from their DAW.

From Spud: “V.S.C. creates a gateway that allows audio to be streamed directly from any DAW or analog setup over the web in real-time, instead of using a USB Microphone. Audio is available to stream in stereo depending on which VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) chat service you choose to use.”

Baton Rouge residents: PreSonus is partnering with The Blood Center for a blood drive on Tuesday, May 21, from 9 a.m. to 1:20 p.m. There is currently a national shortage of blood, and sadly, deposits made to a blood bank do not accrue interest—so the Red Cross needs all the help they can get! Just a pint of blood can save up to three lives!

Please Click HERE to ensure you are eligible to donate. It is important to eat a good breakfast before donating blood and be sure to bring your photo ID!

The blood mobile will be located behind the Bon Carre buildling, near the PreSonus Audio Electronics entrance.
7257 Florida Blvd.
Baton Rouge, LA 70806

If you are interested, email jobs@presonus.com to confirm a time slot, and here’s some handy tips from the Red Cross for a successful donation.

Generous souls not suffering from trypanophobia will walk away with a bandage on their arm, a song in their heart, and a killer PreSonuSphere T-shirt!
