PreSonus PRM1

PreSonus has announced it is offering a free PRM1 reference microphone with a purchase of the StudioLive 24.4.2 digital mixer with Smaart.

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 (RTA) 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.

Hal Leonard publishes Studio One for Engineers and Producers

Studio One for Engineers and Producers

Hal Leonard Books has announced it is shipping Studio One for Engineers and Producers, a Quick Pro Guide is specifically designed to help engineers and producers who are already comfortable using another DAW software platform make the transition to Studio One.

The author and audio engineer Bill Edstrom says: “I’ve done projects in just about every DAW on the market. To use most of these systems you need to be in a very technical frame of mind. I was looking for something simpler – something to get creative songwriting ideas out. That’s when I discovered Studio One.”

Studio One for Engineers and Producers starts by relating Studio One’s layout and functionality to other common DAWs, to identify the most important similarities and differences. It then follows the creative process through the normal progression of a modern recording/production. This new cross-platform (Mac/PC) DAW is built from the ground up for speed, efficiency, and power; Studio One for Engineers and Producers is the perfect tool to shorten the pathway from installation to inspiration!

The book is accompanied with 12 new video tutorials covering the key concepts. Studio One for Engineers and Producers demonstrates the creative, practical, and technical benefits provided by PreSonus in this modern, well-developed, flexible, and user-friendly application. All instruction is presented in straightforward and simple language that gets right to the point, taking into consideration the need for amateurs, home studio owners, and commercial professionals to get up to speed very quickly. Readers will enjoy the numerous tips and real world examples. Edstrom adds: “I was recording with Studio One as a canvas for creativity. But I realized that I could produce music end to end without really needing to use other tools. In short, Studio One is fun to use!”

The book is available to purchase for $16.99 USD.

PreSonus introduces StudioLive AI-series loudspeakers

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 25, 2013 - comment 0 comments

PreSonus has announced its new StudioLive AI-series Active Integration Loudspeakers, the first active loudspeakers that deliver studio-monitor accuracy onstage and are equipped with complete wireless or wired remote control and monitoring using an iPad or laptop.

PreSonus StudioLive AI-series

All StudioLive AI-series speakers incorporate Fulcrum Acoustic’s TQ™ Temporal Equalization algorithms. TQ employs multiple, fully addressable Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filters to eliminate horn reflections and to correct linear time and amplitude anomalies. Collaborating with Fulcrum Acoustic co-founder, Dave Gunness, PreSonus software designers incorporated custom TQ algorithms with dynamics processing, FFT tools, and performance monitoring into the onboard DSP – quite possibly the most powerful suite of tools ever available in a loudspeaker system. The result is a PA system with remarkably clear, coherent, studio-quality sound: Studio…Live!

Another key component of the StudioLive AI’s distinctive design is its use of Active Integration technology. Active Integration combines wireless and wired networking and communications with the aforementioned powerful DSP to create a unified working environment.

All StudioLive AI-series loudspeakers include a USB Wi-Fi module to connect to SL Room Control software over a wireless network. SL Room Control is an impressive system-configuration application for Mac OS X®, Windows®, and iPad that provides both individual and grouped speaker control and includes a 31-band graphic EQ and an 8-band parametric EQ, muting, soloing, and level control, in addition to performance monitoring (over temperature, click detection, and excursions). A network-setup wizard is also included to quickly connect each speaker to your wireless network. An included Ethernet port on each speaker can be replaced with an AVB option card, which is expected to available in late 2013.

Full-range AI-series loudspeakers are available in three configurations. Each compact, powered, 3-way loudspeaker relies on a custom-designed, 8-inch coaxial speaker with a 1.75-inch titanium compression driver to reproduce the mid and high frequencies. The triamplified, Class D power amplifiers in each model (quad-amped in the 328AI) deliver an astonishing combined 2,000 watts of power.

The StudioLive 312AI comes equipped with a 12-inch ferrite speaker to handle low-frequency reproduction. This model is a great choice for venue owners who need high-quality speakers that offer enough coverage for normal bar needs (such as game broadcast and canned music) and are powerful enough for a band or a karaoke night.

Featuring dual 8-inch ferrite speakers for low-frequency reproduction, the StudioLive 328AI delivers full-range, high-powered performance, yet is streamlined and compact- just right for the club that needs a compact PA with the frequency range, sound, and power of a large system.

For the large venue that needs a bigger low-end, the StudioLive 315AI provides 3-way coverage, with a 15-inch speaker for the lows.

Each full-range system has a combo XLR/TRS line input and an XLR microphone input with an XMAX™ Class A mic preamplifier and 12V phantom power, as well as an XLR audio throughput. The full-range speaker systems are pole-mountable and have two ergonomic side handles, interlocking stacking, and M10 fly points. All enclosures are of lightweight plywood construction. Three operation modes allow the user to choose DSP presets for their application, such as MP3 playback, live performance, or stage monitoring. Users can also create a custom preset using SL Room Control and store it onboard for use later.

In addition to the full-range, 3-way systems, PreSonus is offering the StudioLive 18sAI, a powered, 18-inch, ferrite subwoofer designed to complement the full-range StudioLive AI speakers while still being flexible enough to work with other powered loudspeakers. A 1,000W amplifier powers the subwoofer. The StudioLive 18sAI offers stereo line inputs (XLR/¼-inch combo) and full-range stereo line outputs (XLR) that can be summed to mono. An alignment delay can be set to 0, 2, or 4 feet, allowing the subwoofer to combine perfectly with a full-range system.

Each full-range, three-way speaker system includes a switch that engages an External Subwoofer mode. In this mode, a custom low-cut filter ensures that the bottom frequency range of the woofer and the top range of the StudioLive 18sAI subwoofer overlap, and an alignment delay and phase correction are enabled, creating a true time- and phase-aligned, four-way system.

The StudioLive 18sAI subwoofer offers an additional alignment delay that can be set to 0, 2, or 4 feet, allowing the full-range system to be placed on the subwoofer pole (the 0 setting) or with the subwoofer in front, or with the full-range system onstage and the subwoofer on the floor.

Custom accessories for the AI-series speakers include a mountable Sub Dolly to make hauling the 18sAI subwoofer easy and a pull-tested Sub Pole to mount a full-range system atop the 18sAI. An M10 Kit, which contains four M10 eyebolts, lets you fly any full-range model in a permanent installation. Protective covers for the 312AI, 328AI, 315AI, and 18sAI are also available.

All models are expected to ship late in the first quarter of 2013.

PreSonus intros Capture 2.0 live recording software

Related: , , , Posted in news on Jan 24, 2013 - comment 0 comments

PreSonus has announced Capture 2.0, a major upgrade to its ultra-easy-to-use audio-recording software for Mac and Windows.

Designed specifically for live recording, Capture is bundled with all PreSonus StudioLive™-series digital recording and performance mixers and is preconfigured for instant use. Version 2 further streamlines workflow-one of Capture’s strengths-and adds significant new safety features to an already remarkably stable recording platform.

PreSonus Capture 2.0
PreSonus Capture 2.0 live recording software adds major features and a new look.

The first thing you’ll notice when you launch Capture 2.0 is a new Start page that lets you instantly create new sessions and access previous sessions. Capture’s overall design has been updated with a darker color scheme for improved visibility and legibility in difficult lighting conditions. A new Big Meter mode turns your computer monitor into a gigantic meter bridge that is clearly visible from a considerable distance.

Capture 2.0 includes several workflow enhancements. Clicking the Record Now button on Capture’s Start page creates a new session and immediately starts recording. A new Prerecord feature captures audio on all tracks, starting up to a minute before you press Record. Even saving a session can be automated, with user-definable Auto-Save intervals. Capture also stores the active session automatically whenever the transport is stopped and the session is changed.

Sessions now can store metadata, and folder structures are organized by artist, performance, location, and song (marker). When you create a new session, Capture uses the metadata to automatically name the session and, optionally, create the appropriate subfolders.

A new Soundcheck mode makes it simple to virtually soundcheck using previously recorded material. Create a new session and press the Soundcheck button, and Capture will try to find previous sessions. Simply drag-and-drop your tracks to reorder them in the arrangement and match any channel layout on the StudioLive.

Capture has always been a notably stable recording platform; with version 2.0, Capture 2.0 is virtually failsafe. If a complete power loss occurs, as soon as Capture is relaunched, it will automatically recover the session and all files. In addition, when you begin recording, the Session Lock feature is automatically engaged, preventing keyboard access to Capture. The lock can only be disengaged with a direct click of the mouse. Disk performance and remaining record time can be monitored in real time.

The 2.0 update offers a variety of other useful features. Of particular importance, it adds support for 96 kHz recording with PreSonus’ new StudioLive 32.4.2AI Active Integration digital mixers. A new Stereo Playback mode lets you use Capture with any built-in computer soundcard so you can edit and export with a laptop and headphones.

Capture 2.0 is free to all StudioLive users and is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.8 and higher and with Windows 7 and 8 (32/64-bit). It is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2013.
