PreSonus has announced it has acquired music marketing service Nimbit and integrated its technology and services into Studio One Artist, Producer, and Professional. 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:
- Sell and promote their music and audio the moment it is created;
- Sell MP3s, CDs, merchandise, and event tickets through stores for Facebook pages, 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; and
- 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 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.
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.
