Celebrating 25 years of PreSonus

15/01/2020

Let's take a minute to look at all the firsts PreSonus has had in our first 25 years, from 1995-2020. It's been quite a ride, and we've been glad to have you along for it. In fact, we couldn't have done it without your support and input. Thanks for taking the trip with us. The next 25? They're going to be even better.
