PreSonus ULT-series active loudspeakers combine the widest horizontal dispersion of any loudspeaker in their class with a focused vertical dispersion for an ultra-long throw. The result is even coverage throughout the space, enabling the audience to hear clearly wherever they are. Featuring PreSonus’ proprietary Pivot X110 horn and plenty of Class D power in a lightweight design, ULT full-range loudspeakers deliver first-rate speech intelligibility and natural music reproduction. A companion ULT18 active subwoofer delivers a powerful, clear, and accurate low-end punch in a compact design, making ULT-series systems ideal for both mobile use and permanent installations.
ASCAP invited 18 top songwriters and producers to write the hits of tomorrow at its fourth annual songwriters retreat in France.
Held September 17-25 at the 14th-century Château Marouatte in the Dordogne region of France, the retreat was designed to produce hits and get cuts in a variety of genres. Each session placed a producer, a topliner and a recording artist together to write and record in a different room of the castle. By the end of the retreat, nearly all the participants had worked together. They left France with hard drives full of professional-grade demos, ready to pitch to artists and record labels.
Château Marouatte is owned by famed music industry executive Miles Copeland, founder of IRS Records. Copeland once brought music legends like Jeff Beck, Jon Bon Jovi, Belinda Carlisle and Desmond Child to high-level songwriting summits at the Château. In 2011, ASCAP convinced Copeland to revive the tradition, and has brought a new group of songwriters and producers to France every year since.
The 2014 participants hailed from around the world and across the genre spectrum. They were: Anjulie, Martin Brammer, Ashley Campbell, Mike Daly, Chris DeStefano, John Fortis, Elyar Fox, Dia Frampton, JT Harding, Brett James, Giovanni James, Brian Kennedy, Emmy Palmer, Autumn Rowe, Amir “Azeem” Salem, Sharon Vaughn, Peter Wade and Oren Yoel.

Thunder Soul, the incredible Jamie Foxx-produced music documentary of PreSonus Artists The Kashmere Stage Band, is airing soon on the Showtime network. This is an absolute must-see, feel-funky story about the power and influence of music education; the story of the Kashmere Stage band’s rise and reunion as led by the late Conrad “Prof” Johnson.
While I could write about this movie all day, I don’t want to spoil anything for you. Check out the trailer, and be sure to click here and read the Kashmere Stage Band’s biography in our artist section.

In their incredibly thorough review, AudioFanZine put the Eris E8 through its paces and it would seem as though the monitor didn’t even break a sweat. I won’t waste any of your time getting all meta- and reviewing their review—suffice it to say that we’re flattered. Instead, a snippit:
“For their first attempt in the monitor speaker market, PreSonus start with an already technically mature product. The Eris E8 offers high-quality construction, comprehensive input connections and extensive setting possibilities (low-cut filter plus low, mid and high filters) at an affordable price ($250 for a single monitor). During our listening sessions, the speaker seduced us because it reveals no real weakness. The frequency response is very smooth, even smoother than the Mackie we liked so much two years ago, all frequencies are reproduced effortless. This also applies to the dynamic range and the stereo imaging. This E8 monitor speaker is the autumn hot deal in the lower mid-class market segment.”
The StudioLive mixers are an ideal choice for running audio for your theate productions!
StudioLive mixers are ideal for the theatre because they are easy to use, allow you to save and recall production scenes, and the integrated software tools allow anyone to run sound. This video demonstrates how school and community theatres can benefit from using a StudioLive to enhance their production and rehearsals.
