PreSonus Blog

We’re happy to report that PreSonus Artist KATFYR’s track “Lose Control” is currently sitting at the #2 spot on Beatport’s Dubstep chart, notably above some guy called “Skrillex.” We’re equally happy to also report that the track was made in none other than Studio One!

If you’ve ever wanted to see what makes a track like this tick, you need look no farther than to KATFYR’s demonstration of Studio One at NAMM 2014, where you can see how “Lose Control” was built from the ground up.

Sincere congrats to a good friend doing good work. If you’re so inclined, why not help him out a bit, and get a copy of the track and bump him up to #1?

This instant rebate allows you to save $50 when you buy an AudioBox Studio—an everything-in-one-box recording solution for budget-minded and mobile recordists alike. Here’s what you get: An AudioBox USB 2-channel recording interface, HD7 headphones, M7 condenser microphone, and Studio One Artist. All you need to supply is creativity.

Portability is the name of the game here, as the AudioBox USB is bus powered, meaning no fumbling around with dorky old wall warts, and no recording sessions will be sacrificed to the dead battery gods.

The M7 large-diaphragm condenser mic is ideally suited for vocals and acoustic instruments, but you can put it in front of pretty well anything and confidently expect great results. The HD7 headphones allow you to monitor and mix your tracks with clarity and style.

Last but most, Studio One Artist is the award-winning DAW that offers unlimited tracks, sterling audio quality, and an intuitive drag-and-drop user interface. It will leave you wondering how people ever made music any other way back in the dark ages of 2009.

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.

Christopher “AudioCzar” Smith is no joke. The man’s been cranking out track after track for a long time, now, and in the last year he’s settled on Studio One Professional for all of his sonic endeavors. Fortunately for us (and you) I was able to get him to answer some questions about his production habits, and why he’s chosen PreSonus.

When he’s not producing music, he’s also producing excellent videos full of Studio One tips; at the time of this writing he’s up to 20 and counting. Click here to see all of the Czar’s vids. 

Who are you, where are you, and what do you do?

I’m Christopher “Czar” Smith, originally from Memphis, but I live in Nashville, TN. I am an audio engineer specializing in recording and mixing.

How were you introduced to PreSonus?

I bought Studio One Artist during a NAMM sale few years ago, for about $20. It was an impulse buy I’m glad I made. Actually, I remember my first recording setup back in 2000—I had a PreSonus TubePRE for vocals. 

What PreSonus software/hardware do you use and for what purpose?

Every mix I’ve done since 2013 has been done in Studio One Professional, and every song or album I’ve mastered since upgrading to Professional was also done in Studio One. When I work out of Groove Box studios here in Nashville I use the DigiMax FS for tracking drum or hardware inserts for my analog gear I bring with me. I also have a FaderPort that I use when mixing. 

What’s so great about PreSonus, anyhow?

PreSonus is great because unlike a lot of other companies, you can tell they are really passionate about their products, and they listen to the consumer. They also have excellent customer interaction. If you tweet them, they will tweet back. Everyone I’ve met from the PreSonus staff at NAMM or Gearfest have all been friendly and helpful. And all the products are well thought-out and designed. PreSonus is one of the few companies I look forward to seeing new products from every year.

What’s the last big project that you worked on using PreSonus gear?

The last big project I did was a mix for Diane Betts, a very talented singer/songwriter here in Nashville. Her song was mixed and mastered using Studio One Profefssional.

What are you working on now—or next?

Right now I’m finishing up mixing and mastering The Equalizers debut album, “After Hours.” Next up, I’ll be mixing an album for a rap group from Nashville, and I’m doing some production for a rap artist from Nebraska. I also just got hired to do some mixing and mastering for an artist in France. It’s the first time I doing work for someone overseas, so I’m excited about it!

Where can folks find out more information about you and your work online?
