[This just in from Julian Reaves, AKA Giuliani, of Architect Media Group!]
Hey PreSonus! I’m Julian. I run Architect Media, an independent entertainment company located in California. We have an in-house digital studio where we use PreSonus Studio One Professional as our main DAW. We feel that Studio One gives us unlimited flexibility from producing and recording to mastering—all in one application! We used Studio One on Irban Jeter’s album “I.R.B Hit The Spot,”released on Architect Media Group/ Interscope Digital Distribution, as well as on Ryan Goree’s single “Chocolate Teddy Bear,” that was released on Architect Media Group/ Def Jam Digital Distribution.
Architect Media Group is not just a music company. We are venturing into soundtracks, film, television, and video games, and we’re confident that Studio One Professional is going to play big part in recording, mastering and sound design.
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.

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.”

PureMix.Net just completed this incredible three-part video series on mixing Jay Stolar in Studio One. The trailer is embedded below, but the entire video series is available over on PureMix.Net. Get some great insights on recording and mixing a live show from Fab Dupont!
Hey, why not save a little money while you’re at it? PureMix is kindly offering PreSonus users 40% this great tutorial. Hurry, this offer ends Oct. 8, 2013!
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.”
A while back Rodney raised the bar for live webcasts with this great collaboration with ScanProAudioTV. We really need to work with those guys again. I mean seriously, they have a green screen and everything.
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.

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:
[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.
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.
