Hey guys, I'm kind of new to most recording equipment. I've been recording with a really simple usb m-audio interface for a while now using sonar x1. Since this has really been my only hobby for a while, I'm looking to step it up. What type of equipment do I need in order to do mixing on a mixing board? How can I allow "syncing" so that for example, if I change a mix level in my software, it will adjust it on my mixing board? What should I be looking for?
With the StudioLive 16.0.2, if you have a laptop, you have a multitrack digital recorder instantly ready to capture your gig or presentation.
Just two mouse clicks engages Capture recording software. When you install it on your laptop, it automatically “maps” to the outputs of the 16.0.2 to automatically record all 16 input channels.
In a “footprint” of less than 2 square feet (0.19 sq. meters), the compact, 16-channel StudioLive 16.0.2 offers 8 mono input channels and 4 stereo channels and provides 12 XMAX Class A solid-state mic preamps. (It has a total of 13 Class A mic preamps, including the Talkback input.)
Moreover, you can control virtually the entire mixer from an iPad using PreSonus StudioLive Remote, and you can control the aux (monitor) mixes from an iPhone or iPod touch using PreSonus QMix™. Both are free downloads from the Apple App Store.
There are five parts to this system:
Virtual StudioLive with Smaart for laptop control, editor/librarian functions, and sound-system analysis and correction
StudioLive Remote for iPad remote control (available free from the Apple App Store)
QMix for iPhone and iPod touch remote control (available free from the Apple App Store)
Capture for two-click multi-track recording and playback
Studio One Artist Digital Audio Workstation for enhancing your recordings (and for direct recording from StudioLive 16.0.2 or any compatible interface)
