Behind the Scenes of the New PreSonus Headquarters

On April 30, 2015, we formally christened our new headquarters in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with one heck of shindig.

This video, screened at said shindig, contains  a selection of interviews with some of the luminaries who had a hand in the creation of our new home, including Mayor Kip Holden, architect Scott Ritter, and more—along with some of the regular cast of PreSonus characters. There were a few architectural challenges inherent in peppering a few office spaces around a world-class recording studio core, but the team really pulled it off.

Thanks to everyone who made this possible. This is a great home.

Don’t Think Twice, Just Listen to the Darn Bob Dylan Tribute.

This Saturday, WUMB’s “Local Folk” program For the Sake of the Song will celebrate Bob Dylan’s birthday by airing excerpts from last month’s Tribute to Bob Dylan concert. The show will also feature interviews with the performers and more behind the scenes material. The show will be streamed live at at 1:00 p.m. EST on Saturday, 5/24/14.

Patrick Coman of WUMB says, “PreSonus users might be interested to know that we recorded the concert running both stage and room mics through the StudioLive 16.4.2. The guys at the studio did a bit of clean up of the raw audio and then I used the StudioLive and the Studio One software to record and edit voice overs and production of the raw audio into our final segment.”














#ThrowBack Thursday: Retro PreSonus Marketing—Feel the Vibe

Way back in the year 2000, we had a string of ads centered around the mantra of “Feel The Vibe.” Originally titled “Feel The Vibe, Man, Because it’s Totally Gnarly,” we had to make some cuts so that it would fit on the back of our badges. Such decisions were much more difficult for us in the pre-Twitter era.

Like Apple’s 1984 Mac ad or Budweiser’s Spuds McKenzie, advertising has remained forever changed in a post-Feel the Vibe world. FtV explored the nexus of split-complimentary color theory and Chris Columbus’ 1990 masterwork Home Alone through the lens of surrealist laminate. More importantly—it asked us to examine these qualities within ourselves.  14 years later, it still does.
