PreSonus Blog

The new Eris studio monitors are showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, they were recently recognized with AudioFanZine’s “Best Value” award, and here’s just a sampling of the praise that they’ve earned so far from others:

  • PreSonus has a reputation of making great products “for the rest of us,” and the Eris speakers follow that philosophy.” - Jon Chappell, Harmony Central
  • “Setting them up in my humble (yet effective) home studio for a few months helped me hear things I wasn’t hearing previously and helped me to provide better mixes for my clients.” - Eli Crews, Tape Op
  • “The PreSonus Eris E5 and E8 are quality made, well­ equipped and good-­natured active speakers for near field… Five Stars” Felix Klostermann, Bonedo.De

It just so happens that in April 2014, we’re cutting the price back a bit on these guys. The Eris E5s are available for $50 off per pair, down to $250, (USD) and the E8s are available for $100 off per pair, down to $400!

You are NOT going to find better sonic bang for your buck no matter where you look. Furthermore, there’s no rebate forms to mess with and no waiting times, just quick ‘n’ easy $avings.

This offer is available in the US and select markets outside the US. Click here to find a US dealer or check with your local distributor for availability in your region.

If you’ve had your eyes (and ears) on the StudioLive AI digital mixers, now’s a great time to buy, as you’ll get the PRM1 measurement microphone along with it—a $100 value! Saving money is great and all—but what’s so special about the PRM1?

Glad you asked.

The PRM1 is a special type of condenser microphone that provides an accurate reproduction of a room’s sound characteristics. As such, it is ideal for use with audio-analysis tools such as the Smaart real-time analyzers (RTAs) and spectrographs, included with the mixer’s Virtual StudioLive-AI software. This allows you to shoot the room for troublesome acoustic headaches that are specific to the venue, dial in the right EQ to compensate, and get a head-start on your high-quality mix. You can then save the scene to VSL-AI, so the next time you visit the venue, you don’t have to start from square one all over again.

The PRM1 more than pays for itself in saved time—but that’s really not an issue here, since it’s free and all. Click here to get the required form. Don’t forget to save your receipt!

This offer is available world-wide. If you’re in the US, click here to find a dealer. Folks outside the US can find a dealer by clicking here.

It’s that time again! Get in on the world’s fastest-growing DAW for a whopping 50% off of MSRP! 

I don’t even know where to start with describing what a screaming deal this is. You can get Studio One Professional, including the Project page for mastering, VST support, Celemony Melodyne Essential, and a lot more—for about two hundred bucks USD. 

Think about that. It’s like getting a 40-inch TV for two hundred bucks, or like getting a PS4 for two hundred bucks. Except with Studio One, you’ll be doing a lot more doing, and a lot less  of the sort of non-productive time associated with the prior examples.

So, come get some! This offer includes upgrades, so if you’ve been itching to update your version of Studio One Artist or Producer, now’s the best possible time. HURRY! Offer ends March 31, 2014.

Chances are that if you’re looking at Sceptre monitors, you’ve already got a pair of monitors and are looking to upgrade. Cool! While we’ve kept the price as reasonable as possible, it’s no secret that the Sceptres are completely pro—even the pros think so. You can also check out the 5-star user reviews from Sweetwater.com customers by clicking here.

While we’re flattered that you’ve considered the Sceptres, we would encourage you to refrain from hastily tossing your old, mediocre monitors on Craigslist. Why? Because even with the Sceptres, having multiple monitoring options allows you to check out how your mixes will sound  on less-than-ideal setups.

Enter Monitor Station. It would be a total pain in the ear to have to re-wire your studio just to A/B your mix on a couple pairs of speakers, so let the Monitor Station take over. And until March 31, 2014, you will get a Monitor Station for FREE if you buy a pair of Sceptres. That’s a whopping $299 value!

The Monitor Station allows you to connect up to three pairs of monitors, so you can get an idea of what your mixes sound like on your shiny new Sceptres, average speakers, crappy computer speakers, or whatever else you would like to plug to it.

Furthermore, you can mix with your producer buddies in private with four LOUD headphone Outs, and a talkback mic allows you to politely request that the drummer stop beating the devil out of your Blue Mics Kiwi that you probably shouldn’t have let him use on the snare. Lastly, you can sum your mixes to mono at the touch of a button to check for phase problems.

Oh, and there’s a great big volume knob.

Getting in with the new doesn’t mean you have to get out with the old. With this package deal, you will make dramatic improvements to your monitoring with a single purchase.

Buy Sceptre Monitorss, get Monitor Station FREE – a $299 value!

Buy Eris E5 or E8 monitors, get Studio One Artist, for FREE, a $99 value

If you’re going to get a pair of reasonably-priced, incredible-sounding speakers, it would do them (and you) a disservice to use less than a reasonably-priced, incredible-sounding DAW. For a limited time, if you purchase Eris E5 or E8 monitors, we’ll throw in Studio One Artist, FREE! No rebate forms required on this one.

  Buy an AudioBox 1818VSL before January 31, 2014, get an HP4 Headphone Amplifier FREE

These two products make a great team. The AudioBox 1818VSL offers eight XLR inputs. And if you need eight inputs, you probably have more than one musician in the room, which would imply that you need a few different headphone mixes for monitoring. Unless, of course, you’re recording an octopus playing eight single-note melodies on eight different monophonic synthesizers.If that’s the case, please invite me to your Christmas party.

The AudioBox 1818VSL allows for monitoring your recording with effects but without latency, and when combined with the HP4 headphone amplifier, this game-changing experience can be shared with three of your friends. This offer ends January 31, 2014.

A lot of holiday marketing hoo-haw talks about “stocking stuffers.” This sort of hype is intended to resonate with that segment of the Pinterest crowd that believes “good things come in small packages.” That’s cool and all, but I know for a fact that we musicians like nothing more than unwrapping a great big box full of pro audio gear and promptly getting it up and running. Preferably before the goose is served, and grandma falls asleep in the recliner, wine glass in hand. And besides, you already have a couple of stocking stuffers. They’re called “feet.”

Here’s a look at some opportunities to save some hay-pennies on our already reasonably-priced studio stuffers.

Free Gig Bag with Purchase of StudioLive 16.0.2 Digital Mixer 

Buy a StudioLive 16.0.2, get a sweet, steely-grey carrying case. Even the most abominable of snowmen need to leave the cave now and again, and we feel the StudioLive should go with them. This fashionable, admittedly box-like gig bag will keep your StudioLive 16.0.2 warm and toasty through the most boreal of polar tundras.  Save your receipt! This promo ends Dec. 31, 2013.

So, ya wanna make a record? Have we got a deal for you. From now until January 31, 2014, if you buy an AudioBox 1818VSL interface, we’ll sweeten the deal in the form of an HP4 Headphone Amplifier. These two products work phenomenally well together. Not so much in a chocolate and peanut butter sense, as those are generally perceived as equal partners. This is more of a Batman and Robin-type relationship.

The AudioBox’s much-lauded VSL technology will allow you and your band to monitor your vocals (or guitar, or whatevs) with effects and without the heinous scourge of latency. Eight XLR inputs and a bevy of outputs and routing options make the 1818VSL a versatile solution for tracking a four-piece band, even with multi-channel drums.

It gets better. Previously proffered package of the AudioBox 1818VSL and HP4 headphone amp will allow up to four band members to monitor their performances during tracking. Hearing your vocals over the din of that 28” vintage crash/ride your drummer is rapidly destroying isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity! And as headphone amps go, the HP4 is as loud as they come—if ya want. In more quieted environs, you can mix silently without waking your spouse/roommate/rugrat(s) via your HP4 and headphones.

This offer is available to most territories worldwide—check with your local distributor.  You can find yours by clicking here.

Next, Click here to get the simple rebate form. Make sure you save your receipt when you buy the AudioBox, fill out the form, get it back to us, and we’ll ship out the HP4. It will back up your AudioBox time and time again. It’s like having R2D2, Tonto, and Short Round all come to your rescue at once.

Take a look at VSL Remote and QMix. Then, add to that that we’re nestled waaaay down down here in Baton Rouge. If you detect a pattern, it is likely remoteness. Getting a StudioLive installed in your venue or house of worship is a day to celebrate for certain, but once in a while you’ve got to pull up stakes, notify your emergency contacts, lace up your boots, and leave town. In an ideal world, your StudioLive should go with you.

It can, because free bag. While we laud Bob Tudor’s effort spent trying to figure out a way to add cross-platform compatible satcheling technologies to the StudioLives via firmware update, we had to cut him off when his dev time hit the three month mark. So, while we acknowledge that this is something of a compromise… hey, free bag.

From October 1, 2013, through December 31, 2013, purchasers of the StudioLive 16.0.2 should save their receipts and then fill out this quick’n’easy form:

Click here to get the Rebate Form!

… and then we will send you your handsome, steely-grey StudioLive carrying backpack for FREE, which is cross-compatible with blankets, cables, ziplocked bags of freeze-dried gumbo, or whatever else you can fit in it. Please give us a few weeks to process and ship your backpack.

Oh, and tell your friends. If a bunch of you get together with your newfound cases, you can have yourselves a FreeBagger Party and then use that ticket to run for public office in November.

Ah, good ol’ AudioBox. It’s like a cross between an interface, pack mule, and member of the band. Ever the dependable ally, the AudioBox VSL interfaces have carried many an Artist through countless recording endeavors with reliability, consistency, and zero-latency monitoring. Perhaps that’s why I can’t find a user review for the AudioBox with less than 4/5 stars on the big online dealer websites.

In the spirit of complete solutions, we’ve always been happy to include Studio One Artist with the AudioBox VSL series. But in the spirit of completer solutions—and reliable friendyness—we’re tacking on a bonus for a li’l while.

From now through Dec 31st, 2013, you can get that included copy of Studio One Artist 2.6 upgraded to Studio One Producer 2.6 when purchasing the AudioBox 22VSL, AudioBox 44VSL, or the AudioBox 1818VSL. Both Studio One Artist and the upgrade to Studio One Producer are worth $99, so, that’s like getting $200 of free software. You’re welcome, and after all, what are friends for? Studio One Producer includes significant feature upgrades from Artist, including MP3 import/export and virtual instrument support.

If you live in the USA, click here to find a list of dealers in your area. International buyers can click here.

This rebate offer is available until Dec. 31, 2013. Save your receipt, physical or emailed, as you’ll need it when the time comes to claim your upgrade via the handy form.
