PreSonus announces StudioLive AI-Series Digital Mixers with Active Integration

PreSonus has announced its new series of StudioLive AI hardware/software digital mixing and recording systems, each with Active Integration technology.

StudioLive AI-series mixers retain the same surface-driven functionality that made StudioLive mixers famous, while adding even more processing power, enhanced workflow features, and Active Integration technology. Like the original StudioLive series, they’re incredibly intuitive and easy to learn and use.

PreSonus StudioLive AI 32.4.2 mk2

The series consists of three models: the 32-channel StudioLive 32.4.2AI, with 24 dedicated mix buses; 24-channel StudioLive 24.4.2AI, with 20 dedicated mix buses; and 16-channel StudioLive 16.4.2AI, with 16 dedicated mix buses.

Unrivaled sound quality is provided by premium Burr-Brown A/D/A converters and new DSP architecture based on the acclaimed 64-bit Studio One® audio engine. Robust DSP performance, direct Wi-Fi and LAN communication, fast and intuitive workflow, an onboard FireWire s800 interface, and a tightly integrated software suite for Mac®, Windows®, and iOS® create a streamlined working environment for both live and studio use.

Redesigned from the ground up, these state-of-the-art mixers provide analog workflow with extensive dual signal processing on every channel and bus and actively integrated software that solves real-world problems and lets you record and distribute what you mix. All signal processing-Fat Channel processing, reverb and delay effects, graphic EQs, the works – is available on all channels and buses at all times. Configurable networking and communications option cards ensure your investment won’t be outdated as new technologies emerge.

Active Integration is the difference

PreSonus Active Integration (AI) is a complete, networked, tightly integrated hardware/software ecosystem in which every touch point in the system communicates to enhance the user experience and solve practical problems in ways not previously possible.

PreSonus StudioLive AI

In StudioLive AI-series digital mixers, Active Integration technology provides wireless or wired (Ethernet) remote control over nearly every feature, thanks to tight integration with the newly redesigned PreSonus StudioLive AI Software Library for Mac®, Windows®, and iOS®, which is included free with StudioLive AI-series mixers. The new mixers sport a FireWire s800 interface and an Ethernet control port on an upgradeable card that can be swapped for optional Dante, AVB, or Thunderbolt.

Thanks to Active Integration, StudioLive AI-series digital mixers deliver an extended feature set, including twice as many internal effects buses as first-generation StudioLive mixers (two reverbs and two delays on dedicated buses), the ability to create two complete sets of parametric EQ and dynamics-processor settings for each channel and bus and make quick A/B comparisons at the touch of a button, and more.

Seamlessly integrated software

The StudioLive AI Software Library has been redesigned for the Active Integration platform and includes the latest versions of PreSonus’ tightly integrated software bundle for Mac and Windows: Capture™ 2.1 multitrack-recording software, Studio One Artist® 2.6 DAW, and Virtual StudioLive-AI editor/librarian/control software with Smaart Measurement Technology™.

In addition, StudioLive Remote-AI control software for iPad® and QMix™-AI aux-mix control for iPhone®/iPod® touch will be available free from the Apple App Store.

All of these applications are designed to communicate with each other and with the mixer. For example, channel names entered in SL Remote-AI are broadcast throughout the network (including Capture), so you only have to name a channel once-and you can name it from anywhere, including the StudioLive AI mixer.

Here’s a level of integration you won’t get anywhere else: When you record with Capture 2.1, you have the option of saving the StudioLive AI mixer scene along with the Capture Session. Studio One 2.6 can open Capture Sessions natively, and when you open a Capture Session that includes a StudioLive AI mixer scene, the Studio One mixer is set to match your StudioLive AI mix scene, including fader values, mutes, pan, and FX send mixes. Fat Channel settings are loaded into Studio One’s new Fat Channel Native Effects™ plug-in. Now you can listen to your mix on your laptop, just as it sounded during the gig, even if the StudioLive AI mixer is packed and on its way to the next gig.

Last and far from least, PreSonus’ award-winning Studio One® DAW has been updated to version 2.6. In addition to the aforementioned ability to import StudioLive AI scenes from Capture 2.1 and apply the scene to its own mixer and new Fat Channel plug-in that can share presets with VSL-AI, version 2.6 adds Nimbit® and SoundCloud™ dashboards to the Start page, extended hardware-controller support, major metronome enhancements, and much more.

StudioLive AI digital mixers are expected to be available at PreSonus dealers in the third and fourth quarters of 2013, with the StudioLive 32.4.2AI coming first, followed quickly by the other two models. MAP/street price is expected to be $3,999.95 USD for the StudioLive 32.4.2AI, $2,999.95 USD for the 24.4.2AI, and $1,999.95 USD for the 16.4.2AI.

Nektar now shipping Panorama P1 for Cubase, Nuendo & Reason

Related: , , , , , , , , , , Posted in news on May 15, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Nektar has announced it has started shipping the Panorama P1, a compact control surface with 66 real-time controls, a color high-resolution TFT display and deep integration for Cubase, Nuendo and Reason.

Nektar Panorama P1

Build on the established Panorama workflow originally developed for Reason, the latest Cubase and Nuendo support offers full navigation of the sequencer tracks, mixer, insert and instrument plug-ins as well as project navigation. Tactile control has never been more intuitive with parameters automatically mapped once a menu is selected. Panorama comes pre-mapped for more than 250 plug-ins including all Steinberg branded plug-ins. Each map can be customized by the user using the unique Panorama “Learn” function. Users can also utilize the “Learn” function to create basic maps for plug-ins that have not yet been pre-mapped by Nektar.

Just like the Reason implementation which has been regularly updated with support for Rack Extensions over the past 12 months, the Cubase and Nuendo implementation for Panorama will continue to evolve. New plug-in maps will be added regularly and provided free to all registered Panorama users.

Both worlds simultaneously
Panorama users who ReWire Reason to Cubase/Nuendo can also take advantage of the real-time DAW switching that allows Panorama to control either Reason or Cubase at any one time. There is no loss of control functionality so the full 3 modes, Mixer, Instrument and Transport are available as you switch back and forth between Cubase/Nuendo and Reason.
The TFT display provides ongoing navigation and parameter feedback so there is no need to look at the computer monitor. The ReWire switching is color coded to make sure you always know which DAW you are controlling.

Panorama P1 in addition is a comprehensive USB MIDI controller with an easy and transparent user interface. Each assignable control can be programmed to send MIDI messages and any of the buttons are capable of sending QWERTY macros of up to 8 computer shortcut commands, as well as be programmed to load any preset or map.

Panorama P1 is available now at music dealers dealers world wide for MSRP $349.99 USD/289.99 EUR/£244.99 GBP.

The Cubase/Nuendo implementation supports the entire Panorama range. Existing P4 and P6 users can download it immediately from the Nektar website.
