Buy a PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2 with Smaart, Get a Free PRM1 Reference Mic!

March 4, 2013

We’re celebrating the release of PreSonus® Universal Control 1.7 with integrated Rational Acoustics Smaart® audio-analysis and optimization software—and we want to spread the good cheer! So if you buy a StudioLive™ 24.4.2 digital mixer between March 1 and May 31, 2013, you’ll not only get a great mixer and software bundle—including Universal Control 1.7 with Smaart—you will also get a free PreSonus PRM1 precision reference microphone!

Smaart Measurement Technology™ provides a spectrograph and real-time analyzer that let you see, graphically, what’s going on in your mix and quickly fix frequency problems and squelch feedback. But that’s just the beginning. The new Universal Control 1.7 adds three amazing Smaart wizards that make it easy to view the frequency response of a venue, quickly calculate and set delay-system timing, and verify output connectivity. Now you can quickly tune your PA to whatever venue you’re in—no engineering degree required!

To use these new wizards, you’ll need a reference, or “measurement,” microphone like the PRM1—a super clean, omnidirectional mic with a flat frequency response for capturing the sound in the room as accurately as possible.

Normally, we offer the PRM1 reference mic for $99 U.S. but until May 31, you get it free with the purchase of a StudioLive 24.4.2!

This offer is valid at all U.S. PreSonus dealers and at dealers in several other nations. Customers outside of the U.S. should check with their local dealers to find out whether they are participating.
