PreSonus Studio One Integrates Nimbit to Become A Complete Musician's Solution


PreSonus™ announced it has acquired Nimbit® and integrated its technology and services into Studio One™ Artist, Producer, and Professional to provide a complete solution for music and audio creation, sales, and promotion. The integration will be available on August 1, 2012, via a free Nimbit Extension for Studio One 2.0.6 and later.

With integrated Nimbit, Studio One users can:
Instantly sell and promote their music and audio the moment it is created.
Sell MP3s, CDs, merchandise, and event tickets through beautiful stores for their Facebook pages, their Web sites, NimbitMusic.com, and services like Jango, FanBridge, and PledgeMusic.

Create sharable, interactive promotions for Facebook, Twitter, and email that feature music and video players, messages to fans, and free downloads to drive sales.

Grow their fan base and understand their fans better thanks to detailed analytics and sales reporting.

From Studio One Artist, Producer, and Professional v.2.0.6 and later (with the free Nimbit Extension), you can select an individual song right from the start page, or select File >Export and upload to Nimbit. You then add details, upload a product image, and set a price, and your music will be immediately available for sale.

Studio One Professional users will reap additional benefits. When you export to Nimbit from the Project page, your project metadata pre-populates the Nimbit product setup, allowing you to sell and promote your music almost instantaneously.

A Complete Solution

With the addition of Nimbit technology and services, Studio One users can now go from creating the first track to marketing and selling a finished project, all within Studio One and associated Web sites. Studio One Professional users can record, mix, master, digitally release, burn CDs, upload to the Web via SoundCloud, and market and sell through Nimbit without leaving the DAW.

In short, Studio One has become a complete musician's solution.

Registered Studio One 2 customers will be able to download the Nimbit Extension free from the PreSonus Exchange. Having installed the Extension, they can sign up for a Nimbit Free or Nimbit Plus account from within Studio One and start selling and promoting their music.

The benefits of Nimbit are not limited to PreSonus Studio One customers. Anyone who would like to sell and promote their music, other audio products, and merchandise can sign up at Nimbit.com | the power of direct to fan or can install the free Nimbit store for Facebook.

PreSonus Acquires Nimbit

To accomplish this integration and take full advantage of the two companies' synergies, 2012 PreSonus acquired Nimbit, Inc., in April 2012 for an undisclosed sum.

"Our mission has always been to empower musicians, and until today we've done it by creating the best tools for music creation and recording," says PreSonus CEO Jim Mack. "But musicians need more than a good recording to succeed. Nimbit shared our vision of helping musicians, giving them the easiest way to sell and promote music online. Combining our products into a truly complete solution for musicians was a natural fit, and we saw such a bright future for their business model that we decided to acquire the company."

"The team at PreSonus really 'gets it'; their vision fits naturally with ours and even allows us to broaden the reach of our platform," comments Patrick Faucher, co-founder and CTO of Nimbit, Inc. "We're thrilled to be working along side these luminaries, making Nimbit a critical piece of the complete ecosystem that PreSonus is creating."

Philip Antoniades, cofounder and president of Nimbit, Inc., adds, "It's easy to run fast when you are working with forward thinkers who have a similar mission of redefining the music industry through technology. Together we'll close the gap between creation, promotion and sales-in fact, with our newly released Studio One integration, it has already started."

Nimbit will continue independent operations as a wholly owned subsidiary of PreSonus, located in Massachusetts. Nimbit founders Patrick Faucher and Philip Antoniades and CEO Bob Cramer will continue running day-to-day operations, product specification, and development of the Nimbit platform; and Nimbit's development, support, retail, and marketing teams are all remaining with the subsidiary.

I gotta say....I could not care less about this. Seems gimicky to me. Stop doing things like this Presonus, and add even basic video function to Studio One. How about fixing the controller situation? Its embarrassing. Love the daw, but I'm tired of it looking like it is being marketed towards hobbyists.

Looks like it may be okay to me, and why should the hobbyist not be able to make a little coin, even if it only helps you buy another vst or s1 upgrade etc, Lets be fare to all,Iam not complaining and i will not be selfish and i will not rule out any benifits to myself until i have looked into it.
Video support is of no interest to me,but if better support is wanted who am i to stand in the way.




Just imagine being able to have this view in s1, for multiple lanes at the same time, better than the multi lane midi editor,which is more for orchestral arrangent, and bare in mind you cant beat this for drum sequencing also, its a must have view.

Bold move. This gives PreSonus their own unique Web store for musicians and will provide an additional revenue stream as well. Interesting.

Studio One is now Studio 360.

Mix
Master
Publish
Sell


It is a unique selling point IMHO in a very competitive DAW world.

I should add a new entry into my db vs Studio 360 blog about this.

Congratulations you're just another angry customer who doesn't see the whole picture...I'd venture to guess this falls under a completely different division in the company than the S1 software development div. Stop thinking small minded and take into consideration that Presonus is a much larger company than JUST the S1 development team. All the S1 devs have to do is create an extension, in the grand scheme of things that's a relatively simple project won't take focus from S1 development.

As for your implication that S1 is somehow embarassing...at version 2...

To that I say: Whatever.

The Nimbit Extension is in the Exchange right now, by the way.

And yes, this is a completely different development team, and developing this Extension, or the platform itself in the future, detracts nothing from S1 development.

We're quite aware of all the feature requests, they are important to us and a definite part of our roadmap.

Pretty awesome Presonus! This is a new, and exciting way, for artists to get there music out their, and fast!

Being able to make money on their music will help take them from entry level, to the next level.

I think this is fantastic for the home grown music industry. I would venture to say that a majority of users are not as tied in to distribution as established acts are. To have the ability to immediately market the work you just finished is outstanding.

There is always the option to not use it. Well done Presonus. Top notch son, top notch.
