Check it out—here’s Dave Bryce, showing you the best way to set up your Temblor T10 Subwoofer in your studio. While a lot of subwoofer marketing verbiage talks about “room-shaking” bass, the fact is that’s not all hype. Subwoofers REALLY DO shake the room, and can resonate the environment at specific frequencies, creating sounds that aren’t actually coming from your speakers. This makes mixing critical low-end frequencies impossible, as you aren’t hearing an accurate representation of what you’ve recorded.
The solution is to systematically test your sub in YOUR environment, and work out the kinks to get the most accurate-sounding configuration possible. The Temblor T10 makes this very easy, and Dave is here to help. Take a look!
This just in from the globetrotting portion of our crew that spent some quality time at Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany, last week. We saw a lot of old friends, shook the hands of new friends, and shot some admittedly shakey-cam videos. But hey, that’s “from the trenches,” right? it’s just like being there!
Featured in this trifecta of Cinéma vérité are the Monitor Station V2, the Music Creation Suite, the Sceptre monitors, and—perhaps most important—our incredible #GetYourHooksIn contest. Click around the video below to get all the details.
We apologize in advance for the poor audio quality.

Alright! The very first hot-off-the-hard drive review of the Eris 4.5 just got a kickin’ video review from Fred Caplongo at HomeTracks. Fred’s review is also a full-on unboxing, so you can see all the cool manuals, stickers, and foam inserts that ship with the Eris 4.5; standard. Don’t say we never gave you nuthin’!
Fred says, “PreSonus has really thought of everything… You get every bit of that 70Hz in these speakers. I don’t know how they do it, because they’re pretty small… If your budget for monitors is $200, you’ve got a good choice in these speakers. ”

“The feature count is high, the sound quality is very good and it is a thoroughly well designed and built unit.”
Kind press folks the world over swung by our booth at NAMM 2014, cameras in tow on tiring shoulders. Here’s some clips from AudioSavings exploring the StudioLive AI mixers, SL Room Control, and the Sceptre and Eris monitors. More videos from other sources to come!

“Ultimately, someone looking to setup a home studio or who needs portable monitors ought to go with the PreSonus Eris E8. The quality’s professional level, the functions are versatile, and the design is fairly portable – so how much more could you want?”
The kind folks at Resoution Magazine recently put the Eris E8 studio Montiors through one of their signature, exhaustive bench tests. We’re pleased to report that Keith Holland from Resolution liked not only what he heard, but also what he measured. Here’s a snip.
“Overall the PreSonus Eris E8 is an excellent performer, especially at low frequencies. The designers have managed to combine a protected, extended low-frequency response and low distortion with an accurate low-frequency transient response. The other aspects of the performance do not disappoint either, with good time and frequency domain responses and controlled off-axis behaviour.”
You can read the entire bench test in Resolution’s October issue, available in digital form here.
