PreSonus announced the availability of a new HD mode for their StudioLive AI-series digital mixers. Once updated, any StudioLive AI-series mixer can record and play back audio streams at sample rates up to 96 kHz over the onboard FireWire 800 interface. The number of recording and playback streams is unaffected.
Designed with recording in mind, HD mode limits cascading and output processing while retaining bus mixing, Fat Channel processing on every input channel, and one reverb and one delay processor. Since included Capture and Studio One Artist for Mac and Windows already record high-definition audio, no updates to these applications are required.
Registered StudioLive AI-series mixer owners can update their StudioLive AI-series mixer firmware free by downloading the firmware from their My PreSonus account or by connecting their mixer to an Internet-capable network and updating over the Web. Information on how to update the firmware is available from the online PreSonus Knowledgebase.
PreSonus also announced that its Nimbit online, direct-to-fan music marketing, promotion, and sales service now supports high-definition (24-bit, 96 kHz) audio. Musicians are able to upload their WAV mastered files or upload AIFF and FLAC files, all from the same interface.
With Nimbit online services PreSonus offers a complete, “riff to release” music recording, production, and delivery solution for high-definition audio. Record, mix, and master in 24-bit, 96 kHz with a PreSonus StudioLive AI-series mixer and Capture or Studio One, then upload your HD files directly to Nimbit for promotion and delivery.
PreSonus acquired the Boston-based provider of direct-to-fan music services in April 2012. Since then, PreSonus kept Nimbit running as a wholly owned subsidiary and invested directly in the integration of their existing hardware and software solutions directly with Nimbit’s tools for selling and marketing music.
