The Frontliner recently scored an interview with PreSonus Quality Assurance Tester and all-around Studio One Answer Man Dominic Bazile. In their thorough Q&A session, Dominic’s brains are picked about not only how he got involved with PreSonus, but also about some of the inner workings that make Studio One tick. If you want an inside look at Studio One from a man who knows better than most, look no further!
Check it out! KATFYR, who was so kind to present for us at NAMM 2014, just wrapped up this excellent demo of the sounds of Goldbaby Essentials, an incredible add-on pack for Studio One that includes meticulously sampled old-skool drum machines, lovingly sampled to cozy, warm, analog tape. Grab yourself a copy of Goldbaby Essentials by clicking here, and save a lot of money (and desk space) over buying all those hard-to-maintain and harder-to-afford analog beatboxes of yore. Hear the sounds of GoldBaby Essentials below!

The kind sports at Hero’s Last Mission put together this exceptional video describing their workflow with the StudioLive 16.4.2. They are using the board to its fullest in both the studio and onstage, taking advantage of features like QMix personal monitoring and scene recall for saving board settings appropriate to multiple venues. Furthermore, they record live shows to Capture and then mix later in Studio One!
Hero’s Last Mission is taking advantage of the full PreSonus solution. Are you?
Long-haul six-string stalwarts at Guitar World paid us a visit at NAMM, and received demos for both the Metal Pack Add-on for Studio One, as well as the Progression tab editor. Fortunately for us (and thereby, you) they brought video cameras.
Thanks much for the kind attention, gents, and particularly to Scott Van Heldt, without whom the Metal Pack could not have been properly represented. To hear more of his heavy, click here.
Ampire XT Metal Pack for Studio One:
Progression Tab Editor:
The FREE update to Studio One 2.6.2 introduces, among other things, support for Add-ons, which will include program extensions, soundsets, plug-ins, and who knows what else. But to kick things off, we’re proud to introduce the following trifecta:
If you’re looking to get your 808 on without shelling out $3,500 on ebay—and don’t forget that a MIDI-sync mod will run you for another couple hundred—this is the right pack for you at less than 1/100th of the price. But drum machines don’t begin and end X0X kick drums, so the exclusive Goldbaby Essentials Soundset for Impact features a whopping 500 samples from beatboxes of yore, arranged into 32 Impact drum kit presets and 124 new musicloops.
This collection is very different than that no-name drum machine sample collection you regrettably BitTorrented a while back. You know the one I’m talking about: rife with clipping, inconsistent filenames, and varied sample rates. You got what you didn’t pay for. Goldbaby Essentials has been meticulously, professionally sampled by a real pro, and processed with warm, saturated, real-analog-tape-saturated goodness. Add to that the money, space, and time you’re saving when compared to buying all those drum machines and sampling them yourself—and you can’t deny that Goldbaby Essentials is even better than the real thing(s).

Ampire XT Metal Pack:
If your sonic endeavors concern matters more grim and forstbitten, then the Ampire XT Metal Pack is your expressway to the heavy-guitar underworld. The pack features six new bröötal amp models for Ampire, as well as six new cabinet emulations.
Furthermore, we’ve recognized that metal drums (and metal drummers) have rightfully begun to infringe on the guitar’s monopolization of the metal spotlight. As such, we’ve included a brand-new metal drum kit for Impact, rife with clicky kick drums, anvil snares, and, well, metallic cymbals. We decided against including drum samples inspired by St. Anger. Up the Irons!

Studio One Artist MP3 Encoder:
This long-requested feature for Studio One Artist is now available as a convenient and inexpensive Add-on! Add .MP3 import and export functionality to Studio One Artist for a low price. Once you’ve installed this, clear up a little disk space by uninstalling Audacity—you won’t be needing it to get your .MP3s converted to .WAVs for use in Studio One Artist anymore.
Here’s Travis Brockway, live sound engineer for Shane and Shane and Phil Wickham, recently brought the entire PreSonus Active Integration package on the road for the bands’ Christmas Tour. Here, he discusses his experience with the StudioLive AI mixers, and why they’re the right fit for small-to-medium sized churches.
Furthermore, he takes a look at the StudioLive AI speakers, and how they make for the best possible live performances—and how Capture 2, Studio One, and Nimbit make for effortless recording, editing and online distribution of performances and services.

Recording a guitarist with as signature a technique as Steve Dodds introduces some unusual recording quandaries. Fortunately for 5aint, his PreSonus AL 700, ADL 600, StudioLive digital mixer, and Studio One DAW provided everything he needed for the task at hand.
Dodds’ signature “guitabla” stylings are in high demand, as he has been a prolific session player and frequent collaborator with the likes of Steven Stills, Sarah McLachlan, Karen Eden, and more, having worked on projects with notable producers like David Kershenbaum, Jill Joes, Alan Moulder, and Martin Page. His more recent focus has been on his dynamic, genre-blending solo material.
[This just in from PreSonus Artist Patrik Mata of KOMMUNITY FK!]
I wanted to share this recent interview and the debut of one of the new tracks from my band’s upcoming new LP, Thee Image & Thee Myth. The track is entitled “Thee New Tribe.”
I also mention my association as an endorsed Artist with Presonus & how your company saved my career as a composer & multi-instrumentalist. Every track on the new LP was created in Studio One v2.6, as all of my work has been since the software’s original inception.
You can hear a full interview from DJ Cruel Britannia’s Fadeout podcast below. Interview starts at 36:18.
May you have a warm wonderful happy holiday,
