Using pre-configured Multi Impulse Responses from the company’s highly acclaimed software Vienna MIR PRO and its RoomPacks, each instrument or ensemble loaded in Vienna Instruments PRO will find its perfect position on stage at the touch of a button. Users may select from three renowned venues that are available separately or as a bundle. While the Vienna Konzerthaus – Grosser Saal (Great Hall) with a total area of 9,900 square feet (920 m²) is the perfect venue for large symphonic and choral works, the smaller Mozartsaal (4,680 square feet/435 m²) offers an ideal setting for all types of chamber music, from string quartets to chamber orchestras. The famed Teldex Scoring Stage in Berlin has been used for recording purposes since the 1950s. With its 4,900 square feet (455 m²) hall it is still one of the largest private recording studios to achieve international standards. Hundreds of MIRx presets have been created by MIR project manager and esteemed audio engineer Dietmar “Dietz” Tinhof for specific instrumentations and stage settings, allowing for a perfectly balanced orchestral sound at any time. Users will get plenty of inspiration from new video tutorials and demo projects that are available for download at the company’s website.

PreSonus AudioBox gets AB1818VSL Remote for iPad support in v1.2 update

PreSonus has announced it is shipping AudioBox 1.2, a free update that significantly enhances the performance and versatility of their AudioBox 1818VSL interface and also provides a number of new features for its AudioBox™ USB, AudioBox 22VSL and AudioBox 44VSL audio/MIDI interfaces.

PreSonus AB1818VSL Remote for iPad
The AudioBox recording systems get support for the AB1818VSL Remote app for iPad.

One of the biggest enhancements for the AudioBox 1818VSL is that support has been added for AB1818VSL Remote for iPad®. With this free app, you can control virtually every parameter in Virtual StudioLive for AudioBox 1818VSL from an iPad, including volume, pan, aux sends, FX buses, and Fat Channel parameters.

As a result, users can use an AudioBox 1818VSL and USB-connected laptop as a full-featured mixer/recorder for small gigs, rehearsal spaces, and mobile churches, with the iPad serving as a touchscreen mixing surface. In the studio, manage the monitor mixes from your iPad while dedicating your computer screen to a DAW.

A firmware update rescales the preamp tapers on the AudioBox 1818VSL to add more headroom; Virtual StudioLive for 1818VSL now sends all channels to outputs 7/8 (headphones) by default.

With the AudioBox 1.2 update, all AudioBox-series interfaces become compatible with USB 3.0-a rarity among audio interfaces.

This update also provides enhancements for specific AudioBox-series models:

  • The AudioBox USB gains a new, optimized Windows driver for improved performance and a new Windows control panel to adjust buffer size and sample rate.
  • The meters in Virtual StudioLive for all AudioBox VSL-series interfaces have been recalibrated to match the RMS meters in PreSonus’ Studio One DAW.
  • All AudioBox VSL-series interfaces have been integrated into Studio One™ Cue Mix, providing volume and pan control over monitor mixes with the same near-zero latency that Virtual StudioLive software provides.

This free update is recommended for all AudioBox-series users. AB1818VSL Remote is a free download from the Apple App Store.
