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.

Users can now explore popular and latest custom amp models, and can further search by music genres or keywords. Also, sharing is more intuitive than ever: an upload button is always visible in BIAS no matter in what stage of the amp creation process, this makes sharing much easier and faster.

With ToneCloud, BIAS users will be part of a tone community with social utilities that allow them not only to create and share custom amps, but also interact with other musicians. With ToneCloud, BIAS will deliver much more than 36 amp models: it has the whole world of tone, on the cloud.

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.
