Hello PreSonus, this is Serin. How is everything going with you?
We successfully finished our Studio One seminar series, with a new class on every Saturday for the last six weeks. It went from Feb. 16 to Mar. 23, and everyone including myself really enjoyed all the seminars. We had different subjects for each seminar, and all the professional presenters brought and shared their knowledge and experience with Studio One.
We give you a massive thumbs up! What a great software. Thank you all at PreSonus. You guys are amazing.
The music below was the class material of the last class with Hyunjoon Lee. All the tracks are MIDI and sequenced in Studio One.
Join steadyb as he shows you advanced features of Melodyne, integrated into Studio One Professional 2. He will address converting audio to MIDI, as well as Melodyne’s tried-and-true pitch correction for those troublesome “singers.”
Tune in and win; we’ll give away free t-shirts.

John Mlynczak, Education Market Manager for PreSonus, shows us some of the basic ins and outs of recording your school band’s rehearsals via the AudioBox 44VSL. He also shares a bit about the best way to mic the band.
PreSonus LIVE has been steadily gaining momentum for a while now, and we’re really thankful for your continued support and viewership—as well as your chat room participation!
We were wondering: What topics are you interested in seeing in future episodes of PreSonus LIVE? Post your suggestions in the comments. Thanks!
In this episode of PreSonus LIVE, Justin showcases the PRM1 measurement microphone and the Smaart Wizard functionality that is included in the StudioLive 16.4.2 and 24.4.2 mixers.

[This just in from Stephen G. Mark from the George Mason University Indoor Drumline. The GMUID team just placed 8th in the WGI World Championships, and we’re proud as a new mom to learn that a PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2 lent a hand. In fact, per Stephen, the team’s performance was praised for the audio quality of their presentation. Footage of the award-winning performance is below. Running live sound for a drumline is a whole ‘nother animal than running sound for the local Journey tribute band, so I asked Stephen to share some details on the hows and whats and mics. He obliged.]
Hey PreSonus! Just wanted to let you know how things went this past weekend at WGI World Championships. We came in 8th place with a 92.25. We were the only first year world class ensemble to break 90, and the only first year group to be in the top ten, an achievement that hasn’t happened in quite a while.
After the awards ceremony I was told multiple times how our ensemble “by far had the best balance of the entire evening.” I credit being able to manipulate our sound live in aiding this accomplishment, an accomplishment that would not have been possible without the support of PreSonus.
Here’s a video of our finals performance and picture from the performer’s perspective of the 4,000+ audience who watched us perform and listened to that perfect sound that was praised about all night. That audience could definitely see what equipment that we are very proud to endorse.
Long-haul industrial band KMFDM has been at it for 29 years. On their current U.S. tour, they are mixing monitors with a PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2. At the Baton Rouge show, bandleader and multi-instrumentalist Sascha Konietzko cited ease of use and wireless control as primary reasons to choose StudioLive.

Well, our tour is nearing its end. We have our last show today in Denver. On most shows for this tour, we used the StudioLive 24.4.2 as a monitor desk, powering our in-ears mixes. Occasionally, we used it at front of house, and in a couple of situations it was used to its fullest as a front of house desk /monitor desk /recording interface.
For example, last week we did a promo event at KRXQ in Sacramento where about 30 lucky fans won a contest to see the band perform a few songs in a very intimate setting. The performance was captured with the PreSonus desk, while also being videotaped. After mixing and editing, the video will be posted by the radio station. Meanwhile, here’s a promo photo we shot after the performance.
