Presonus 24.4.2 Studiolive Digital Mixer
You'll never go back to an old-school analog mixer once you've used StudioLive. With its incredible signal-processing power on every channel, easy store and recall of every setting, and the ability to record it all with just two mouse clicks, you'll get spoiled fast! Easier to use, better sounding, and flawlessly integrated with state-of-the-art software, it delivers the most creative environment possible for both live performance and studio music production.
But 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.
Presonus 24.4.2 Studiolive Digital Mixer
Control Your Sound Your Way!
With a PreSonus StudioLive-series digital mixer, you not only get high-end sound and tremendous processing, mixing, and recording power, you can control all of this sonic might from virtually anywhere. Want to touch your mix with the physical feedback of real faders and rotary knobs and an intuitive, analog-like user interface? The StudioLive delivers big time; sound people who have only mixed with analog boards quickly become comfortable working with a StudioLive.
Virtual StudioLive: The magic of computer control.
Despite its analog-like mixing surface, this is very much a digital console, and it offers features no analog mixer-and very few digital boards - can match. For example, the ability to control the StudioLive mixer from a laptop adds tremendous flexibility and convenience - and with the bundled Virtual StudioLive bidirectional control/editor/librarian software, you get it all for free.
Written exclusively for StudioLive mixers, Virtual StudioLive (VSL) provides a complete visual representation of the mixer, allowing you to control the features with a mouse, trackpad, or trackball on a FireWire-equipped Mac or PC. Add third-party VPN software, and you can even control StudioLive mixers over the Internet - ideal for contractors. To get a competing mixer with computer control even close to this complete, you'd have to pay several times as much.
Even better: wireless control!
You're mixing a live show with an old-skool mixer - make that any mixer other than StudioLive - and you need to check the sound underneath the balcony - or in the balcony, for that matter. Or you're sound-checking and want to hear the stage monitors for yourself. If you can't leave the mixing station, you have to rely on someone elseâ€™s ears. If you donâ€™t have a reliable crew, you don't have a chance.
You can say goodbye to that problem if you use a StudioLive 24.4.2 and an Apple iPad! With StudioLive Remote for iPad - available free from the Apple App Store - you have complete, real-time, wireless remote control over Virtual StudioLive, which in turn offers real-time control over the StudioLive mixer. As long as you have a wireless connection between your iPad and computer (and are connected via FireWire to the 24.4.2), you are in control of the console. StudioLive Remote is easy to use, provides control of almost every feature of the StudioLive, and looks and feels like an iPad app should.
Yet even better: control of monitor mixes from iPhones and iPod touches!
We've given you a lot of sonic control with the StudioLive, Virtual StudioLive, and StudioLive Remote. It's only fair that we help you give the band control of their sound, too. With PreSonus' free QMix, each band member can control their own StudioLive aux (monitor) mix from an iPhone or iPod touch. QMix lets you adjust a single aux mix per iPhone. Select inputs and levels for your custom monitor mix, and then use the Wheel of Me to get, well... "more me"... quickly during performances.
You can even set permissions to ensure that the bass player, always the practical joker, can't mess with the hot-tempered lead singer's monitor mix. Otherwise, that bass player is going to get in trouble someday.
A gigantic console in a small package thanks to the Fat Channel.
If StudioLive 24.4.2 were an analog console, it would have 4-foot-long channel strips packed with knobs and buttons or it would require a massive outboard rack of expensive signal processors! That's because each channel has its own studio-grade compressor, limiter, gate, 4-band parametric equalizer, and high-pass filter. In all, we've packed 43 compressors, 43 limiters, 43 gates, 24 high-pass filters, and more, into one remarkable Fat Channel.
StudioLive expands with your input needs.
Need more than 24 channels for mixing live shows and don't need to record? Daisy-chain two StudioLive 24.4.2s via their FireWire ports to get up to 48 input channels and 8 submix buses.
If you need more than 24 channels for recording, and you don't need a full channel strip for the additional inputs, you can daisy-chain a StudioLive 24.4.2 with any PreSonus FireStudio-series interface. It could not be simpler.
