PG's Jordan Wagner is On Location in Anaheim, CA, for the 2010 NAMM Show where he visits the PreSonus booth. In this segment, we get to see some of their new recording products for 2010. StudioLive is truly a third-generation digital mixer. Easier to use, better sounding, and flawlessly integrated with state-of-the-art software, it delivers the most creative environment possible for both live performance and studio music production. Here, in one portable device, are high-headroom XMAX? microphone preamplifiers, a built-in FireWire recording and playback interface, more than 90 signal processors, a big library of DSP effects, 6 (16.4.2) or 10 (24.4.2) aux buses, 4 subgroups, extensive LED metering, mixer save and recall, channel-strip save/recall/copy/paste, talkback, and more. Create live mixes that glisten with clarity and detail?then record and enhance the performance with the power of StudioLive. Get creative in the studio. Build mixes, loops, sound effects, and more, then bring them out to your show and mix them with the live performance. Process channels using your favorite plug-ins and completely automate your entire performance. StudioLive revolutionizes music production, opening endless creative possibilities. Studio One is a groundbreaking music creation and production application for Mac OS X and Windows XP/Vista that makes audio recording, MIDI sequencing, and audio mastering ridiculously simple right out of the box. Its a creative environment built for intuitive use, speed, and efficiencyand yet its robust enough for the most complex productions. Its the DAW that a band of leading recording-hardware engineers and a team of industry-defining software-design veterans want to use for themselves. Its incredibly easy to use yet provides a wealth of professional features. Far from just another music-production program, Studio One changes the rules of the game. Fresh code, innovative drag-and-drop MIDI mapping and plug-in management, auto-configuration with PreSonus hardware, insanely good audio quality, unlimited tracks and plug-ins per track, and a powerful, inventive Start page that literally puts the whole project right in your hands are just a few of the compelling features of Studio One.
