Betcha didn’t know we made monitor pads. SURPRISE! And what better way to introduce these squishy li’l buddies than to give them away? From now until June 30, 2016, you’ll get a free pair of the ISPD-4 Monitor Isolation Pads when you buy a pair of R65, R80, Eris E44, or Eris E66 monitors.
I know what you’re thinking. “OK, great, PreSonus makes monitor pads. But why the heck would I need a pair of those? It’s not like my monitors complain about being uncomfortable.”
In a word: decoupling. Speakers transmit their vibrations to any surface they are resting on. That includes your desk, and once it gets moving, it’s likely to have a resonant frequency or two—turning your desk into something of a speaker in its own right. This will most certainly lead to louder bass in your studio—which may sound cool to you, at first. But fact is that this resonance results in an inaccurate portrayal of your mixing work in the worst of all possible places—your studio. A recording that might sound great in your studio sans isolation pads will render thin and without much bottom-end when played on other audio systems.
All you need to do is provide this rebate form signed with proof of purchase. Get a set of ISPD-4s with our newest monitors, and start making mixes that you can trust. The monitors may not thank you, but your clients will.
We’ve decided that we’re going to be doing monthly add-on deals over at shop.presonus.com. And the very first monthly deal is on our Acoustic Drum Loops.
These high-quality drum loops are suitable for both rhythmic inspiration for that new song you’re writing as well as for use in a finished work. They were recorded live with world-class microphones in Nashville, Tennesee’s Downtown Batterie by acclaimed session drummer Tony Morra.
Styles included in all Acoustic Drum Loop packages include:
Each style is an entire library of matching loops that can be arranged to fit any song form, just as a real drummer would play them, and includes individual loops for intros, verses, bridges, choruses, fills, endings, and alternate grooves. All loops were recorded at 24-bit / 44kHz and support time stretch.
Here’s a breakdown on the three packages:
Note: All of these loops require PreSonus Studio One version 2.6.4 or higher. Prime, Artist, Producer, or Professional.
Setting up a new PA system in your venue? Get ahead of the curve by going Dante. With the SL-Dante-SPK option card, you can eliminate audio cabling and transfer uncompressed, low-latency digital audio and control data to and from StudioLive AI loudspeakers over relatively long distances and to multiple locations, using a standard Ethernet network. You’ll also be able to connect your loudspeakers to StudioLive AI console mixers and RM Rackmount mixers via Dante for unparalleled control and flexibility—and as your needs grow in the future, Dante will be ready for you.
Until June 30, 2016, you’ll get four (4!) SL-Dante-SPK option cards when you buy four StudioLive AI loudspeakers, including the 18sAI, 312AI, 328AI, and/or 315AI. That’s eight hundred dollars worth of option cards.
Do you already have a network in your venue? Does the idea of using lightweight CAT5 cable to connect your PA appeal to you? Do you hear where I’m going with this?
