The Ease of Analog Meets the Power of Digital
When Presonus designed StudioLive, one of their primary goals was to provide a familiar interface that would keep all critical controls visible and accessible - not buried inside multiple menus. Sit down at a StudioLive 16.4.2, and you see real hardware Mute and Solo buttons, trim controls, and clearly labeled, individual knobs for the semi-parametric EQ and dynamics processing. The master section - complete with Talkback, Monitor, Cue, and a choice of headphone sources - looks just like the master section on an analog board, but with far more power and flexibility. Aux sends have their own controls. Every channel has a big, bright meter display.
Easy to use and flawlessly integrated with state-of-the-art software, StudioLive 16.4.2 delivers the most creative environment possible for both live performance and studio music production. StudioLive is not simply a mixer, it's a rapidly growing family of state-of-the-art, integrated hardware-software mixing and recording systems that deliver the features you need for live sound, live recording, and studio recording.
A Versatile Mixer for the Stage or Studio
The StudioLive 16.4.2 is a great choice for those who want to mix smaller shows and worship services, and it's a great choice for small club systems, portable churches, small bands, corporate applications, educational institutions, and anywhere you want a rack-mount mixer. It's the perfect hardware core for a project studio. Or daisy-chain two StudioLive 16.4.2s to form a 32x4x2 performance and recording console for mid-sized shows and events.
In this one device, you get high-headroom XMAX microphone preamplifiers, a built-in FireWire recording and playback interface, more than 90 signal processors, a huge library of DSP effects, 6 aux buses, 4 subgroups, extensive LED metering, mixer save and recall, channel-strip save/recall/copy/paste, talkback, and more. Yet despite its many controls and features, StudioLive 16.4.2 is compact, rack-mountable, and easy to transport.
