PreSonus unveils all-new Nimbit

Nimbit

Presonus has announced an all-new Nimbit, the musician’s direct-to-fan marketing and promotions platform, which has been completely reinvented to focus on what today’s musicians need most: automated, integrated tools that enable engaged and monetized relationships with their fans.

Capture and Reward Fans at Live Shows with FanCheck.in

When PreSonus queried its customers, at the top of their wish list was a better way to deliver live recordings quickly to fans and to capture fans at live events. Now, with Nimbit’s FanCheck.in, you can reward fans for checking in at or after live events with a simple URL or QR code. Rewards can be a live recording from the event, an exclusive mp3 download, a video from the artist, or a special offer. The fan makes an immediate connection, and you capture their email address, linked to the event they attended. Then follow up after the show with the entire live recording or another special offer and reach out to these fans when you play in their area again. The followup offer can even be automatically emailed at a set time after the show. Beta testers of FanCheck.in achieved email capture rates as high as 22% of the venue capacity. Try that with a notebook at the merch table!

New Google-enhanced Calendar with Automatic Geotargeted Promotion

You can now promote upcoming events to fans more effectively using the new Nimbit Calendar. With just a few clicks, set up events using crowd-sourced venue data and integrated Google Maps. Events display on your Profile and can be promoted to fans via automated, geotargeted announcements and reminders to fans at preset intervals before live shows. Because your Nimbit Calendar and email tool are tightly integrated, simply enter your tour dates and enable reminders to fans, and Nimbit will automatically send your tour promotion to the right fans at the right time.

Razor Focused and Automated Email Tools

The new email marketing tool makes it easy to send beautiful newsletters, event announcements, and promotions that can be automated and targeted to specific fan groups-no Web-coding experience required. Combined with Nimbit’s fan list and deep fan-filtering capabilities, email marketing lets you send personalized and relevant emails, including recurring messages.

New Artist Profile

PreSonus has overhauled the Nimbit Store with a new, fan-facing artist Profile, designed to be a central place where fans can have a richer experience with artists. The new Profile combines photos, a bio, upcoming events, videos, streaming audio, featured promotions, and more. Even those new to online promotion can set up or manage their Profiles in just a few minutes.

It’s easy to enhance your Web site with your Nimbit Profile, Store, Calendar, or any combination by copying and pasting embed codes (just like adding a YouTube video). Sell and promote to fans direct on Facebook by installing the Nimbit Facebook app. And your Nimbit Profile is instantly available on Nimbit.com as soon as you’re ready.

A Nimbit account is free, including many of Nimbit’s best features. A la carte features are available for purchase, or get the Nimbit Premium for $19.95 USD per month.

Ohm Force releases Ohm Studio 1.0 digital audio workstation

Ohm Studio

Ohm Force has announced version 1.0 of its Ohm Studio real-time collaborative digital audio workstation software for Windows and Mac.

Ohm Studio is the only pro-grade DAW that allows for online cloud-based collaboration – a technical challenge that explains why it took so long and why Ohm Studio is the only DAW to offer online collaboration to date.

As opposed to other DAWs that culturally promote the idea that one guy can do it all, Ohm Force understands that the music most people listen to is very rarely made by one person alone. In this age of the Internet, having access to a world of talented people to do instrument recording, arranging, producing will be brought back to the core experience of computer music making.

Collaborative features as well as a UI with a gentle learning curve and pro-grade audio performance complete the approach that sums up Ohm Studio.

Ohm Studio is both a software and a service. You can go for free offers for both, or buy both, or any combination of the two.

Ohm Studio pricing

  • Ohm Studio (free) includes a basic production suite, free partner plugins (Hybrit amp sim from Lepou and Voxengo’s Old Skool Verb), exclusive UVI-made Ohm Studio multi-instrument (with 1.5 Gb of sounds), Frohmage filter and all of the Ohm Studio features with two exceptions: recording is limited to 16 bits and export to high quality compressed audio.
  • Ohm Studio Pro (€39 euro zone, ~$42 everywhere else) includes all of this, gets rid of the two limitations and also includes industry standards OhmBoyz delay and Minimonsta synth.
  • Ohm Studio Pro XXL (€99 euro zone, ~$107 everywhere else) includes everything from the pro version plus Ohmicide distortion, Quad Frohmage filterbank, Predatohm distortion, Hematohm frequency shifter, Ohmygod! comb filter, Mobilohm phaser and Oddity synth.
  • On the service side users can choose to pay a monthly fee to take advantage of a comfortable project- and asset storage space, or stay with the 10 free projects. Creating, joining, or being a member of a given project will all use 1 project credit.

PowerFX launches Daria Musk remix contest on Google+ Hangouts

Soundation Daria Musk remix contest

PowerFX has announced its first ever Soundation Studio social remix contest on Google+ Hangouts with +Daria Musk.

After Spotify and SoundCloud another small Swedish music tech company, PowerFX Systems, is hoping to impact the digital music world with their cloud-based music making app Soundation Studio for Google+ Hangouts. Soundation combined with the multi-person video calling feature in Google+ Hangouts allows you to create or remix music with up to nine users in separate geographical locations and video chat together in real-time.

“Digital music making is usually a solitary affair”, states Bil Bryant of Soundation. “You sit in front of your computer and make your music or your remix, but with the Soundation in Hangout combination, a whole new collaborative experience is available. The video element and the potential of engaging anyone with an internet connection really expands the possibilities.”

To kick off this development, Soundation is teaming up with the exciting, new artist and web sensation, Daria Musk, for the first ever social music making remix contest. Daria Musk is one of the most successful artists on Google+, with over 3 million followers and has provided her song “Ghost” for the contest. Participants can login with their Google+ or Soundation account and launch Soundation Studio for Google+ Hangout and invite friends in the Google+ community. Once a remix is complete it is published to a Soundation group where each remix can be listened to and voted on with likes. Daria and dancer Karen Cheng will select the winner from the top ten most voted submissions and they will receive a Meet and Greet with Daria and Karen to explain the remix which will be broadcast via Hangout On Air to YouTube. Karen will make a video of herself dancing to the winner remix and post it on YouTube and Soundation will supply a Chromebook Pixel.

Deadline for remix submissions is November 10th 2013 6:00 pm EST (24:00 CET). The winning remix will win a Meet and Greet Hangout on Air with +Daria Musk to talk about how the remix was made.

Propellerhead Figure

Propellerhead has released version 1.4 of Figure, now featuring SoundCloud integration, enabling quick sharing of tracks with friends or the world.

Directly in Figure, users can easily share their tracks privately with their friends or publicly to blogs, sites and social networks using SoundCloud, the world’s leading social sound platform. It takes just a click to share sounds to Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook and Foursquare. In addition Propellerhead has created a mobile listening gallery, where users can listen to any publicly available Figure SoundCloud uploads, to discover new great music — or get inspiration for their own creations: propellerheads.se/mobile

To celebrate the new release, Propellerhead and SoundCloud are holding a prize drawing for everyone who uploads a sound through Figure. Two lucky winners will receive Beats by Dre headphones as well as a Propellerhead software suite and one year SoundCloud Pro account. The more a song is played, the greater the chance that it wins. Details in the drawing can be found here: propellerheads.se/figuredrawing

Propellerhead Figure
In addition using Audiobus, Figure users can now bus their audio to other effects and recording apps in real-time.

Using the Audiobus app with Figure, users can interconnect Figure with other Audiobus capable apps in real-time. Audiobus works like virtual audio cables, enabling Figure audio to be “plugged” into other effects and recording apps running simultaneously. A user can now alter and record an entire Figure performance of any length using additional effects and features from apps outside of Figure itself.

Changes in Figure v1.4

  • SoundCloud integration – share your Figure tracks with access to Facebook, Twitter and more.
  • Audiobus™ support.
  • Background audio (in device Settings).
  • Sort song list by Name/Date.

Figure for iOS is available to purchase for 0.79 EUR / $0.99 USD.
