Hey PreSonus! We finished the EPK, all recorded live from our PreSonus 16.4.2. Hope y’all dig. Bobby Sparks was on the gig as you will see!

We’re proud to announce the Softube Saturation Knob extension, a new, free plug-in to all PreSonus Studio One Professional and Producer users! Why take the time and expense to hit your tracks to some old unreliable magnetic tape machine when you can just turn a li’l virtual knob for the same effect?”
[The following comes to us from Ken Davis, manager for the young six-string wünderkid, and PreSonus Artist Austin Woodward.]
Hey PreSonus team!
As my flight lifts off from the Baton Rouge runway, a silvery trickle of sunlight glints along the plane’s wing (of which I have a perfect view) and suddenly splashes into my eyes with the blinding sting of organic hotel shampoo. Lying back, I think about the events from the last two days and wonder if I’ll ever be able to digest all of the info and experiences I feasted on like Thursday’s jambalaya…
Regular readers of this column know that in addition to the techniques and philosophies discussed here, we also cover a lot of different gear from a variety of manufacturers. Microphones to headphones, keyboards to plug-ins; if it helps you make better music and recordings we try to cover it. That said, there are a few companies whose products have been featured here numerous times. None more so than those from PreSonus (www.presonus.com).
Most recently, we looked at their StudioLive 16.0.2 mixer and StudioOne 2 digital audio workstation software. We highlighted these particular products for three specific reasons: the amount of power being placed into the hands of the “average” musician or recordist, the company’s very reasonable price points and the ingenuity and elegance with which their solutions are rendered.
When I heard they were hosting a two-day event called PreSonuSphere, an interactive conference where users would not only attend information-drenched presentations and receive hands-on training with PreSonus’ line of mixers and software solutions, but would actually be able to interact with the developers of these products as well, I knew I had to go.
[More after the jump. Read the complete article over at San Diego Troubadour.]
We’ve got an extra seat to fill here in the PreSonus office in Baton Rouge. Perhaps it’s a good fit for you!

“Since switching over to the PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2 Scott Szeryk has never sounded better in the studio or on the stage… Szeryk’s latest release “Guitar Manifesto” is evidence of just how good the PreSonus Studio Live sounds!” Give it a listen!
Since the mid-90s, I had been using the Tascam M3500 as my main mixing desk for the home studio, but was becoming a bit weary of its compatibility with modern-day recording setups. When I heard how great the XMAX preamps sounded on a StudioLive, I was instantly sold. Not to mention the insane power and functionality of the board, especially for live FOH! Changing over to the StudioLive 24.4.2was an easy, practical decision…The StudioLive not only shines in the studio but also in live applications! We were able to do spot- on monitor checks, even before the band had arrived at the venue for sound check, by playing back program material from shows previously recorded in Capture. The integration of Universal Control also meant that the onstage players could also control their own monitor mix via iPad SL Remote. There were a few times when we were able to Mix FOH on the iPad when there was a less-than-ideal location for the board at the venue. We rely heavily on the PreSonus StudioLive for recording all of our shows. Check out the latest DVD “Scott Szeryk live at Aeolian Hall!”
