Good morning PreSonus!
We thought you’d enjoy news of our little big contest with just 2 weeks left to go.
We’ve had more than 700 mixes posted on the SoundCloud channel. Also, discussions on the forum have started to pick up with almost 50,000 views!
In a nutshell, it is going really really really well. This is going to be remembered. People are already asking for the next contest!
Here are some of the submissions that have been entered so far. Check out the competition! Can you do better?
John Mlynczak, Education Market Manager for PreSonus, shows us some of the basics of running live sound AND recording a school jazz band with the AudioBox 1818VSL. He shares his channel breakdown and monitoring setup.
With the AudioBox 1818VSL, you can track the entire band, and send students their own parts for study—or whatever submix you feel is best!
In this episode of PreSonus LIVE, Justin showcases the PRM1 measurement microphone and the Smaart Wizard functionality that is included in the StudioLive 16.4.2 and 24.4.2 mixers.
Learn how to use Smaart Spectra to fine tune your live rig to your environment. We also take a look at ringing out your stage monitors using Smaart features.
[This just in from Stephen G. Mark from the George Mason University Indoor Drumline. The GMUID team just placed 8th in the WGI World Championships, and we’re proud as a new mom to learn that a PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2 lent a hand. In fact, per Stephen, the team’s performance was praised for the audio quality of their presentation. Footage of the award-winning performance is below. Running live sound for a drumline is a whole ‘nother animal than running sound for the local Journey tribute band, so I asked Stephen to share some details on the hows and whats and mics. He obliged.]
Hey PreSonus! Just wanted to let you know how things went this past weekend at WGI World Championships. We came in 8th place with a 92.25. We were the only first year world class ensemble to break 90, and the only first year group to be in the top ten, an achievement that hasn’t happened in quite a while.
After the awards ceremony I was told multiple times how our ensemble “by far had the best balance of the entire evening.” I credit being able to manipulate our sound live in aiding this accomplishment, an accomplishment that would not have been possible without the support of PreSonus.
Here’s a video of our finals performance and picture from the performer’s perspective of the 4,000+ audience who watched us perform and listened to that perfect sound that was praised about all night. That audience could definitely see what equipment that we are very proud to endorse.
Long-haul industrial band KMFDM has been at it for 29 years. On their current U.S. tour, they are mixing monitors with a PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2. At the Baton Rouge show, bandleader and multi-instrumentalist Sascha Konietzko cited ease of use and wireless control as primary reasons to choose StudioLive.

Well, our tour is nearing its end. We have our last show today in Denver. On most shows for this tour, we used the StudioLive 24.4.2 as a monitor desk, powering our in-ears mixes. Occasionally, we used it at front of house, and in a couple of situations it was used to its fullest as a front of house desk /monitor desk /recording interface.
For example, last week we did a promo event at KRXQ in Sacramento where about 30 lucky fans won a contest to see the band perform a few songs in a very intimate setting. The performance was captured with the PreSonus desk, while also being videotaped. After mixing and editing, the video will be posted by the radio station. Meanwhile, here’s a promo photo we shot after the performance.
Pictured left to right is Joe Newman (lead singer /guitarist), myself (FOH engineer), Gwil Sainsbury (guitarist /bassist /singer), Thom Green (drummer), Ron Sharpless (seated, monitor engineer), and Gus Unger-Hamilton (Keyboardist /singer).
