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 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!

[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.
