PreSonus firmware update for StudioLive AI Mixers adds cascading

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jun 19, 2014 - comment 0 comments

PreSonus has announced an upcoming firmware upgrade for all StudioLive AI-series Active Integration digital mixers, which will see the first digital mixing solution that provides up to 64-channels, multitrack recording, networked remote control, and more for under $8,000 U.S.

PreSonus StudioLive AI cascading

Start with 16, 24, or 32 channels, then cascade a second mixer of any frame size to create custom-sized mixing consoles with all the hardware and software advantages of StudioLive™ Active Integration™ systems.

Cascading mixers functionally creates a single large-format console with full recording and remote-control capability by simply connecting a FireWire 800 cable between the two mixers. For example, combine two StudioLive 32.4.2AI to get a 64-channel system with 32 mix buses that can record 80 simultaneous streams and play back 66 on any FireWire 800- or Thunderbolt-equipped computer.

Cascading mixers of different frame sizes is great for special events that require a few extra recording channels that don’t need to be in every monitor mix. For example, a StudioLive 16.4.2AI can be cascaded to a 32.4.2AI and form a single 48-channel console with 6 global aux buses, as well as 8 local aux sends that are available to the channels on the 32.4.2AI.

This firmware upgrade is part of PreSonus’ continuing series of free updates to its StudioLive-series mixers and will be available to all registered StudioLive AI mixers owners as a free download from their My PreSonus accounts later this summer. It follows hard on the heels of a firmware update that enables StudioLive AI mixers to directly download future firmware updates over any network with Internet access.

The update does not change the computer system requirements for StudioLive AI mixers and software. Current versions of Capture™ 2.1, SL Remote-AI, QMix™-AI, and VSL-AI are fully compatible with this firmware release.

RSPE launches Mixbus V2.5 No Brainer Deal

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news, promo on Apr 30, 2014 - comment 0 comments

RSPE Audio Solutions has teamed up with Harrison to offer Mixbus V2.5 for the “No Brainer Deal” price of only $19.95 USD.

Harrison Mixbus No Brainer Deal

Mixbus is a full-featured DAW for multi-track recording, editing, mixing and mastering. The Mixbus mixer is designed by Harrison: the manufacturer of consoles used in the world’s most demanding music, film, and live performance facilities. Harrison consoles are known for their great-sounding EQ, filters, dynamics, and bus summing. If you find a music recording from the golden age of albums – the 70s and 80s – that has stood the test of time, it is likely that a Harrison console was used during the production. With the Harrison sound and a logical knob-per-function mixer interface, Mixbus invites you to produce recordings and mixes that will stand with the best.

Designed to complement your current setup with analog-style mixing, Mixbus is compatible with nearly any desktop running Windows, OSX, or Linux. Mixbus loads third-party plug-ins in common formats such as AU and VST. It also uses Harrison’s suite of plug-ins that are derived from the company’s analog and digital console processing. Mixbus and the Harrison plugins provide rock-solid mixing DSP typically reserved for high-end audio installations. Harrison has been a leader in digital audio technology for nearly 30 years.

In addition to program improvements, v2.5 includes three new plug-in demos from Harrison’s XTools for Mixbus plug-in series: the XT-EG Expander / Gate, the XT-DS De-Esser, and the innovative XT-VC Vocal Character plugin.

The XT-EG Expander / Gate provides fast gating or expansion with precision timing for demanding tracks. The XT-DS De-Esser uses proprietary processing to recognize voiced sibilance, so it can naturally de-ess your tracks. Finally, the XT-VC Vocal Character plug-in offers an innovative new way to adjust the character of your vocal recordings. It uses proprietary technology to track the pitch of the input signal, and applies EQ based on the note played.

The No Brainer Deal is available for purchase until midnight May 15th, 2014 (PDT).

PreSonus Power-Up

PreSonus has announced Power-Up, a program that saves first-generation StudioLive digital mixer owners up to $1,200 when trading up to a new StudioLive AI-series Active Integration digital mixer.

  • Global track and bus renaming across the network, including the mixer and all apps.
  • Mixer scenes can be saved with Capture™® Sessions and opened and edited in Studio One® or VSL-AI.
  • Smaart® audio analysis on every channel.
  • Upgradeable network options: Thunderbolt®, Dante®, and AVB.

The offer starts on April 15 and ends on June 30, 2014. The Power-Up offer is valid at all U.S. PreSonus dealers. Customers outside of the U.S. should contact their local distributor to ask about participation.
