Hello PreSonus, this is Serin. How is everything going with you?
We successfully finished our Studio One seminar series, with a new class on every Saturday for the last six weeks. It went from Feb. 16 to Mar. 23, and everyone including myself really enjoyed all the seminars. We had different subjects for each seminar, and all the professional presenters brought and shared their knowledge and experience with Studio One.
We give you a massive thumbs up! What a great software. Thank you all at PreSonus. You guys are amazing.
The music below was the class material of the last class with Hyunjoon Lee. All the tracks are MIDI and sequenced in Studio One.
Once again, the PureMix team performed on the Sweetwater Gearfest theater stage. Fab and Ben recorded The Liza Colby Sound live, with no safety net, showing how to place microphones, set up preamps, and process audio in real-time while recording it!
Starting April 16, the tracks will be available for download, and that’s where you come in. Mix ’em up, submit them, and you could win PreSonus Studio One 2.5 Professional, an ADL 700 preamp, or one of 15 other incredible prizes!

Once in a while I’m asked, “What would you consider you’re best piece of music?” I would have to go out on a limb and say there’s no way to choose which of my creations is my best, much like a parent can’t choose between their kids. I have to let others make that choice. Those choices are what happens when music I’ve created is used to help support other’s creations in TV,film, or games.
I’m fortunate to be getting a lot of placements and uses of my “children,” or as most would call them: songs! Getting to that artistic end result and making what I hear in my head a reality that can be shared with the world is a real pleasure. In making any song a reality, I end up using tools that I know will deliver the quality I need. The PreSonus Monitor Station is a staple in my studio. It’s vital in making it easier to get a great mix.
In the last three months I’ve had the following placements. In every single one of them, I’ve used the Monitor Station. Don’t let your creations leave the studio without using it!

As an independent engineer/producer since the pre-DAW era, I had the opportunity to see the development of the modern-day DAWs. Some had all the bells and whistles but sounded terrible. I have learned so many through the sessions I’ve worked, and I am so excited about PreSonus Studio One 2.5 ! The sound of 64-bit processing and the extensive native plugins put a smile on my analog face every at session.
Every project on my Audio Evidence Mobile studio is different day by day. As a producer and as a live sound engineer, I work with singer-songwriters and full bands. I archive every show and edit each performance into stems for the client. Studio One has made the process so fast and easy. I use the F keyboard command to separate at cursor, and I can move so quickly to the end of the performance that I can sell CDs within minutes at the end of a show. In other DAWs it took a few bounces to disk to get the same task done. One great thing about PreSonus is that when I first downloaded Studio One version 1.0, this feature was not included—but PreSonus is hip to what is needed and with each update they give us what we need!
As an engineer, I love the sound. My studio is a hybrid analog/digital space allowing me the use of my outboard gear using Pipeline Stereo in Studio One. All my effects are outboard, and my main outs are going into either a
Requisite Audio Y7, or a Universal Audio 2-610 if I need EQ. Then I combine into and monitor through a Dangerous Music D-Box, which is a great tool, but Studio One is doing most of the work.
I use samples and tempo mapping a lot in my work, and in Studio One it’s so easy. It allows the programmer to create tracks that sound like a supercomputer tempo or a human—and combining the two does the trick for me!
PreSonus Studio One is fast, fun, and simply the only DAW for me.

My new CD, Mixture, was recorded with Studio One 2.5, has spent five weeks on the CMJ top 40 charts, peaking at number 9 alongside other jazz greats like Lee Rittenour, Chick Corea, Marcus Miller and Diana Krall. We’re getting many great reviews!
One of the powerful tools we used in producing this record is the PreSonus Studio One. My co-writer and co-producer Tom Rule used Studio One for his demo keyboard tracks at his home studio. When we brought the tracks in to my pro studio, Shadow Sound Studio, to finish adding real instruments and mix and master, I fell in love with many of the sounds included with of Studio One. In particular, we loved the stand-up bass sound that shipped with Studio One so much, that we actually left it on the record and never had a live bass player come and replace the MIDI. I have now made Studio One part of my studio tools and of course use PreSonus for my jazz band’s live performances.
I just can’t say enough about Studio One—it is so affordable, the workflow is great, and again, the stand-up bass is really something. I hate to say this to stand-up bass players, but they are probably out of a job—at least at my studio! All the PreSonus gear is so affordable and provides many features that gear triple its cost doesn’t provide, I can honestly recommend PreSonus to all my friends and colleagues.
