Buy an AI speaker, get free cover and free freight

September 2016 only: Buy a StudioLive AI Loudspeaker from shop.presonus.com, and we’ll cover the freight! Not only that, but we’ll also cover the cover. ai_speaker_promo_600x600_8-30-16_nee01

Get a StudioLive AI Loudspeaker of your choice delivered right to your door or place of business, including a form-fitting, fashionable dust cover that will keep them looking their best while locking in that new-speaker smell for some time.

Not sure why you should get a StudioLive AI over any other black box? Control and versatility, for starters. You can remotely EQ them to the venue via SL Room Control on your iPad. They’re equipped for wireless and wired communications over an Ethernet or Wi-Fi for control and tuning. You can also add the SL-Dante-SPK option card to create a Dante network and ditch your clunky, heavy analog snake in favor of lightweight CAT5e or CAT6 cables. Oh, and they’re loud. Imagine studio monitor quality (thanks in part to the coax drivers) at extraordinarily high volume.

But enough about us from us. Check out what Sound on Sound had to say about the StudioLive AI Loudspeakers:

“The StudioLive AI series of powered speakers represents something different from the norm for portable PA. The use of coaxial MF/HF drive units, abundant power output and serious helpings of onboard DSP make these interesting and appealing in their own right, but when teamed up with the Room Control application a whole new set of possibilities opens up, and brings ‘big rig’ functionality into the portable live-sound domain. I’ve been using them in isolation, but remember that they are part of an integrated product range, and the functionality can only increase in the future… There are systems that offer a similar level of remote DSP control, but they almost all reside in the high-end touring sector, rather than the compact PA market.”

 

New Low Prices on Select StudioLive Mixers

New Low Prices on StudioLive Mixers: AI Console Mixers and StudioLive 16.0.2 in the USAStudioLive Mixers Lowest Price

Last season’s StudioLive AI mixer and StudioLive 16.0.2 mixer rebate offer was so popular that we decided to stop making it a limited-time thing, and just lower the price down on these StudioLive Mixers once and for all. Here’s the latest pricing:

  • StudioLive 32.4.2 AI: $2299
  • StudioLive 24.4.2 AI: $1899
  • StudioLive 16.4.2 AI $1599
  • StudioLive 16.0.2: $899

This price drop is effective in the USA only. Pricing outside the US will vary by dealer and region.

If you’ve been considering a digital mixer but haven’t checked in on StudioLive for a while, it’s worth mentioning that the entire StudioLive line won the Musical Merchandise Review (MMR) Dealer Choice Award for Recording Equipment Line of the Year for 2015. Furthermore, recent firmware updates now allow the StudioLive AI Console Mixers to connect to StudioLive RM- and RML-series rack mixers in Stage Box Mode. And of course, StudioLive AI still offers the always-improving remote iPad control options that helped make them such a hit. All StudioLive mixers also include Studio One 3 Artist, our award-winning digital audio workstation.

But hey, don’t take it from us. Here’s what some StudioLive AI reviewers had to say:

Get Free ISPD-4 Monitor Isolation Pads With Purchase of Select PreSonus Monitors

iso_pads_600x600_2-22-16_nee01

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.
