New monitor controller, an overview of the PreSonus Monitor Station V2.

I just bought a new monitor controller as my old became bad in time. I had a cheap ESI passive controller. Now I bought the PreSonus Monitor Station V2.

It has two sets of TSR stereo inputs, One S/P Dif coaxial input and aux Unbalanced RCA/ 1/8 inch stereo input. You can connect three sets of monitors and four headphones. The monitor outs have adjusments pots, so you can equal the volume of each set of speaker to each other.

On the headphone side you can choose either the main source or selectable cue source. Volume is adjustable per headphone out.

PreSonus 1818VSL interface question

I recently picked up a PreSonus 1818VSL interface and while I'm able to record, everything sounds a little "cheap" for lack of a better word. I've been reading and finding that some folks are using a preamp before the interface. Is this common and do the PreSonus preamps suck? Thanks in advance for any information.

PreSonus releases 16 Channel Faderport

this looks amazing! 16 motorized faders, a macro button, footswitch for start and stop, faders can control plugin parameters! A market drop button! HUI compatibility.

At 1k asking price it offers twice as many faders as it’s Mackie and Avid competitors. It’s little brother cuts the price and fader count exactly in half.

Looks like it has a nice compact footprint on the tabletop too.

PreSonus StudioLive 16.0.2

Is anyone using this interface? I love it because it's also a physical mixer but it has some quirks which I've noticed on other PreSonus equipment as well.
I use it with Mixcraft 8 Pro Studio and it works fine but after being armed for a couple of hours, seems to need a release and renew of the driver.
In other words, after I've recorded for a couple hours, the recording will get noisy. I simply close the daw and reopen and it's fine.

Anyone use a PreSonus StudioLive as their interface?

G'day, new here.

I'm at an intermediate level of home recording. Have produced/engineered a couple of records, one of which was played on radio so at a certain level of skill but still consider myself a novice with much to learn really.

Been running an Maudio profire 2626 with a Mac, using Studio One as my DAW.

Tracking live drums i'm at a point where I'm feeling the need to expand my mic preamp's...

PreSonus Firepod Replacement (Audio Interface or USB Mixer)

Sad news! Just upgraded Mac OS to Sierra from Snow Leopard, then PreSonus Firepod that served me right these years doesn't supported anymore (over latest OS).

So, I'm looking for a replacement, whether Audio Interface OR USB Mixer! I'm here to seeking your precious suggestions, opinions even advices!

These years, I realized that I mostly used 4 inputs from Firepod, and a lot of time processing source (clean recording) over DAW.

PreSonus Eris monitors ( E8's)

@dvdhawk, @audiokid, @pcrecord, @Boswell, @Kurt Foster, @Brien Holcombe, @kmetal, et al...

On his visit to Cleveland last week, Dave Hawk was kind enough to bring me a pair of PreSonus Eris E8 monitors to demo. I didn't set them up right away, because I was trying to improve the sound of my space first; but after adding 3 bass traps, a cloud, and some broadband treatment, and listening to the results of this treatment, I felt that I could get a decent enough representation of their performance, so I finally set them up.
