“I literally stopped using Logic.” RecordingReview.com

As anyone who uses it knows, with Studio One the hits don’t stop. We just discovered this incredibly flattering, video-peppered review from Ruprect at Recording Review. In it, they state: (among other things)

“I literally stopped using Logic after spending maybe 2 hours with Studio One. Granted, I was excited about learning something new but the switch was surprisingly painless. Fast forward a few months and I’m faster with Studio One than I ever was with Logic. The main reason is that simple tasks I perform numerous times in every mix are streamlined a little.”

Big thanks are due to the Recording Review crew. Their website is chock-full of many other reviews that you should read as well, and they also offer a number of great articles on all elements of the audio recording process. Check ’em out.

Studio One awarded for putting customers in focus by DAWfreaks.se

Don’t get me wrong here, as I don’t want to huff and puff too much. We’ve received a few technology awards over the years, and we’re proud of that. But this award is something a little different, for two reasons. First, it’s not so much a technology award as it is an attitude award. Second, it’s the first.

Sorry, that doesn’t make much sense. What I is that this is the first-ever “Customers in Focus” award that has ever been given to anybody. And it’s been awarded to Studio One, from the kind folks over at DAWfreak.se.

Via the DAWFreak.se blog:

“The Customers In Focus AWARD is a completely new award from DAWfreak.se. This award is meant to highlight companies that stand out from the crowd by always making sure that their customers feel they get what they paid for, not only through updates and fixes but by listening to the customers and always providing a good support, helpful tools and other features that shows they care for their customers.”

Fab’s video goes into great detail of the entire process, including the use of both native and third-party plug-ins for Studio One, microphone selection, and placement.

Fab DuPont says: “Studio One was perfect for this project, because I knew we would be using several different kinds of interfaces and Studio One works great with all of them. Also, it’s a great tool to do both production and mixing at the same time and i knew since we had to work fast that we may have to back to recording in the middle of the mixing process.”

Rodney’s StudioLive 32.4.2AI / Studio One 2.6 Webcast With ScanProAudioTV

Make a sandwich and strap in; this one clocks in at about 45:00, but that just means there’s no stone un-turned in this thorough investigation into our latest and greatest.

Buy Eris E5 or E8 monitors, get Studio One Artist Free!

The reviews for our new Eris monitors are pouring in, and, well. We’re happy. Currently the Eris speakers are enjoying a five-out-of-five AVERAGE user scores at Guitar Center AND Sweetwater, and we just can’t help but feel like celebrating. History has shown that the best way to share that celebratory spirit is to give away free kick-ass stuff. In this case, it’s Studio One Artist. Don’t forget to grab the free 2.6 update when you install it!

From a couple of days ago until March 31st, you’ll get Studio One Artist FREE if you purchase a Eris E5 or E8 monitors. This offer is available worldwide.

All you need to do is get your monitor(s), and visit the brand-new my.presonus.com and register them. The download link for Studio One Artist will appear in your account. Note that you will only receive a single copy of Studio One per pair of monitors purchased.

Some readers prefer user reviews, others want to know what the pros have to say. Well, here’s a bit of that:

  • PreSonus has a reputation of making great products “for the rest of us,” and the Eris speakers follow that philosophy.” Jon Chappell, Harmony Central
  • Setting them up in my humble (yet effective) home studio for a few months helped me hear things I wasn’t hearing previously and helped me to provide better mixes for my clients.Eli Crews, Tape Op
  • “The PreSonus Eris E5 and E8 are quality made, well­ equipped and good-­natured active speakers for near field… Five Stars” Felix Klostermann, Bonedo.De

Bill Sage at Pro Media UltraSound on the StudioLive

[This just in from Bill Sage—Sales & Design Engineer for Pro Media Ultrasound.]

Hey PreSonus – 

I used to be a touring and recording engineer. I now design and sell AV systems. I’m a busy guy, with a full-time sales job and a marriage.  I mostly do sound for friends’ bands or benefits for charities.

Here are some reasons I am liking Studio One and the StudioLive 16.0.2. I had the opportunity to use one for a benefit a few months ago.

Running Universal Control on my Apple Powerbook, I was able to quickly get set up and my mix together in a matter of minutes. I didn’t even read the manual, and it worked flawlessly—and more importantly, it sounded great!

After the gig, I read the manual… and I had no idea that the StudioLive 16.0.2 even had iPad control, which got me even more curious. I took the plunge and bought the 16.0.2.

I also put the band back together. I am playing bass and singing, the other guys are not engineers so  I am keeping busy!  I use the 16.0.2 and Capture to record basic tracks or rehearsals. Capture is great because I only have to press Record and Stop. Capture lets me concentrate on playing, instead of engineering.

Once home from rehearsal, I import the files into Studio One. Again, it is really simple to get good-sounding tracks. The software is really intuitive, so once again I didn’t read the manual much, but I did find the videos on the internet really helpful.

I have had the “big three” recording softwares at one time or another. This by far is the simplest, most intuitive mixer and software that I have ever used.

I would highly recommend the 16.0.2 and the Studio One Software to anyone.

Cheers!
