PreSonus Audio Electronics and Sound On Sound magazine have come together to stage a series of 3 free events in the UK this October. Entitled “From Riff to Release”, each event will show the audience how an artist can take a song from initial concept right through to commercial release.
To show how it’s done, PreSonus’s own Rick Naqvi, Mark Williams and Rodney Orpheus will team up with UK songwriter Leroy Buckley and demonstrate how Leroy writes a song, does a virtual soundcheck, performs the song live, creates a multitrack recording and then mixes and masters it before releasing it for sale and promoting it.
Sound On Sound’s own editor and guru Paul White will also be on hand to introduce the evening and host a Q&A session on all aspects of the recording process, so this is a unique opportunity for anyone interested in finding out more about songwriting, recording and live performance.
Visitors will get to see a number of key PreSonus products in action – including the best-selling StudioLive digital mixers and the award-winning Studio One DAW, and PreSonus will also be giving away an AudioBox Studio recording bundle at each event.

L’dia on Bass, the First Lady of Four Strings, brought the house down with her brand of hip-shaking, string-breaking thunder at our booth at MusikMesse. She recently launched a new website, and wanted to make sure that all the PreSonus fans out there knew about it!
This came in recently from Modular Display, our Philippine distributor, from the PALMM Asia show!Hey guys! This is one of the top bassists in Philippines, playing in the PreSonus booth a the PALMM show, recorded live through the StudioLive 24.4.2 and Studio One.
This just in from Diggs! He’s got a new EP out recorded entirely in Studio One. He says:Hey, Guys. I’m really loving Studio One Pro 2. I’ve been bragging about it to anyone who will listen! I wanted to e-mail you and let you know that my new project has been released. It’s a short EP called “Mass Exodus” and it’s getting a lot of great reviews. Gilles Peterson even played the whole thing back to back on the BBC over the weekend. Anyway, here is a link to the iTunes page that it’s available on and it’s also available on Bandcamp. Hope you’re having a great day!
Check out the lush, lofty sounds of The Digital Age.
Former members of the David Crowder Band reformed after David parted ways and called the new band The Digital Age. Their new album, called “Rehearsals” was tracked live through a StudioLive 24.4.2 which handled not only recording, but also controlled in-ear monitoring mixes for each of the band members.
The song sounds great, the video looks great. Totally shareworthy, right?
Best wishes to the Digital Age crew down in Waco. Thanks for sharing this, guys!
This just in from PreSonus Artist Andrew Oye…Hey guys hope all is well.I just composed a featured piece of music for Monday Night Football,airing tonight!It’s the piece of music used to introduce the night’s matchup, and is an orchestral into rock piece with crowd chants… all done in Studio One of course!:)Tune in to Monday Night Football tonight to hear the tune live!
So, this is really clever! fostervf16 over at YouTube is using the PreSonus 1818VSL USB interface with his iPad running WaveMachine Labs Auria. He’s found a way to connect the 1818VSL to his iPad using a data card reader, of all things. iPad > Card Reader > 1818VSL. All of this stuff is running off the iPad’s battery.
At the time of writing, I don’t have any insights about what this will do to your iPad’s battery charge. Should you have the necessary components, give this a shot… but save often.
