discWelder BRONZE to be Bundled with PreSonus Firepod, Firebox and Inspire 1394 Products

discWelder BRONZE, the popular DVD-Audio authoring tool, is to be included with PreSonus FIREPOD, FIREBOX, INSPIRE 1394 interfaces, Minnetonka announced today.

PreSonus’ recording interfaces FIREPOD, FIREBOX and the INSPIRE 1394 will now bundle a trial version of Minnetonka Audio’s award-winning DVD-Audio authoring program, discWelder BRONZE. This trial version of discWelder BRONZE includes a complete feature set, capable of burning up to five standards-compliant DVD-A discs. After that time, the program will still function but final disc recording will be disabled until a license is purchased and activated at www.discWelder.com.

We are very excited to be working with PreSonus,” proclaimed Steve Clarke, Director of Marketing at Minnetonka Audio Software. “PreSonus users can now produce high resolution and surround reference discs, playable on standard consumer DVD-A players right out of the box, getting everything out of their FIREPOD, FIREBOX, or INSPIRE 1394 that they put into it.

This is a wonderful opportunity for Minnetonka Audio Software to spread the word about high resolution audio, surround and our DVD-A authoring tools. The flexibility, compatibility, and quality of the format make it a great addition to the PreSonus products.
