Not to brag or anything. But this is newsworthy, right? Fact is it’s nice to be noticed, and it would seem that we turned a couple heads at NAMM. We got so many trophies and atta-boys that we couldn’t even fit them in our suitcases to go back to Baton Rouge, and they had to be shipped separately.
Here’s what we’ve won recently:
On the table, from left to right:
Visual Grand Prix Audio Excellence Award 2013, DAW category: Studio One 2
Electronic Musician, 2013 Editors Choice Award, category “Feature Creep Can Actually Be Good”: AudioBox 1818VSL

This just in from a friend of a friend… They spotted a StudioLive 24.4.2 in use at the Big Game’s Media Party! Thanks!
Here it is: The official release video for the StudioLive 32.4.2AI!
Thanks to Sam Ash for this!
Hope you had an awesome Christmas!
PreSonus VP of Sales and PreSonus lifer Rick Naqvi recently had the opportunity to sit down with überproducer Khaliq Glover. Khaliq has licence to drop names like Prince, Justin Timberlake, Herbie Hancock, John Mayer, Christina Aguilera, Stevie Wonder, Santana, Sting, Brian Eno, Annie Lennox, Smokey Robinson, Jeffrey Osborne, B2K, Narada Michael Walden, Kenny Lattimore, and Faith Evans. He was also one of the many engineers to participate on 1985’s ”We Are The World” project. The man’s the real-deal, and we’re flattered that he converted to Studio One, thanks to a little help from Teddy Riley.
And when I say a REAL test for vocals, I mean it’s tested with none other than Queen’s “Somebody to Love,” which is like the hardest song to sing ever, as p̶e̶r̶f̶o̶r̶m̶e̶d̶ knocked out of the park by American Idol finalist Mathenee Treco.
