Audio Nightlife: PreSonus and Studio One 2 Star at FLUX Studios

EAST VILLAGE, MANHATTAN: Summer proved it was in full swing recently at FLUX Studios. An alluring East Village evening set the warm mood for PreSonus to visit from Louisiana for a Studio One 2 party – NYC style.

A remarkably intuitive and fast-moving DAW, Studio One 2 was at the center of live recording sessions held in FLUX’s inspiring Dangerous live room. Producer Fab Dupont manned the controls and artist Jay Stolar laid down live tracks, which would later be the subject of a Q&A on the software.

Throughout the night, hands-on experience with Studio One 2 was available for the crowd of producers, engineers, and artists in attendance.

And this being FLUX, all amenities were in action: champagne, beautiful people, and the legendary roof deck became increasingly intermingled as a very musical night unfolded.

The future…is now

Some symmetry to start.

Style onsite

Threepeat!

Many a peace sign was flashed that night.

But the siren song of the FLUX roof could no longer be resisted…

Friends and fresh air
