PreSonus Blog

This just in From Jean-Jaque in Aalen, Germany! He runs Asskan Studios, where many PreSonus products have found a caring home. He sent some photos for me to put on our Facebook album of user studio photos, and I instead found them completely blogworthy. Jean-Jaque shares a few words:

Asskan started as a little home recording project. But perfectionism led to a complete little studio, with all the stuff I need. The studio was finished just about 6 months ago.

I searched for a recording solution with a analog-like usage that’s covering a wide range of requirements. I wanted to record mobile, for example in good sounding rooms, I wanted to record bands live, and most of the time, use it in my studio. The solution was the StudioLive 16.4.2. It gives me many channels of recording, great neutral preamps, and the opportunity of mixing my monitors, all in just one device. The HP60 was the perfect extension—now I can give all members of the band what they need in live recording situations.

I also use several pieces of outboard gear, and I’m a total microphone freak. The studio is equipped with a full drum set, guitar amps and many instruments. The combination especially of vintage gear and modern recording gear is what I like. I’m a singer and guitarist myself and so I understand the wish of recording a real 412 guitar-cabinet and not via VST…. although I’m using VST instruments as well. :-)

With Studio One I’ve found a classic, but easy-to-use DAW with many time-saving features. And the FaderPort adds ease to my fader adjustments. I do not like to do  fine adjustments via the mouse, but also I searched for a controller with just one single control.

What I’d like to have? The Studio Channel could be a good follower for my actual outboard preamps.  Maybe the ADL600?!

Some of my recordings:
– Big Fish Audio: The Black Kit 
– My Band: SevenLies

This just in from Fred!

“I received the TubePreV2 yesterday. Thanks! I just posted this unboxing video.”

“It’s a very nice unit. Guitar sounds great via DI. I’ll be producing a demo video within the next week or so showing DI and condenser mic use.”

Regards
-Fred”

But wait, there’s more! Shortly after we learned of the above video, Fred posted this gem, featuring an unusually scientific approach and professional presentation that we don’t always see in YouTube demos.

Much appreciated Fred. Best to ya!

Steve Savanyu at the helm.

You may have heard something about an event last night called the US Presidential Debates. Here’s a shot of Audio-Technica USA’s Steve Savanyu looking stately while recording said debates… on a PreSonus StudioLive, no less.

Here’s Brian BotKiller, lead trainer at OBEDIA, who are among the strongest Studio One advocates around.

Here he is running his MIDI kit into Studio One, where’s he’s activating samples in SampleOne.  He says:

“I’m running the MIDI out of a Roland TD8 drum brain and into Studio One, then in Studio One I run a combination of Superior Drummer, and samples are triggered in of Sample One using a limiter trick I teach to some of my students to trigger drum samples and do drum replacement.”

If you wanna know the secret limiter trick for yourself… you better sign up over at OBEDIA!

International Sales Director of Mystery Mark Williams was able to obtain these top-secret photos; surriptitously shot with his astonishing 8-megapixel suit-button camera.

His now-declassified mission primarily focused on softening a problematic Russian Pork embargo during Sao Paulo’s 2012 Global Customs Forum. Word from our contacts at MI6 is that once again, Mark Williams’ intercontinental powers of seduction have proved limitless, as PreSonus forum users in Brazil have suddenly had very little to complain about.

His Mission: Complete, Mark gathered surveillance of the ExpoMusic show, where suspicions were confirmed: PreSonus partners at QUANTA Brasil are doing an exceptional job.

See below evidence.
