From Our Research Team:
This Digital Mixer Does It All!Huge bang for the buck! The 24-channel StudioLive 24.4.2 blurs the line between analog and digital, while packing a staggering amount of functionality into an easy-to-use digital mixing platform. Take this potent all-in-one machine to the gig and use its built-in effects and the PreSonus-exclusive "Fat Channel" to manage your sound. QMix software lets you wirelessly control your aux mixes from your iPhone or iPod Touch! Want to record the show? It couldn't be easier! Just plug the StudioLive 24.4.2 in to any FireWire-equipped computer, and you're ready to go. The StudioLive 24.4.2 even simplifies the recording process, thanks to its included Capture software for dependable live sound recording and included Studio One Artist DAW software for polishing and producing your tracks after you've recorded them!
There's a lot more you'll want to know about the StudioLive 24.4.2, though. If you've heard the story on its little brother; the 16-channel StudioLive 16.4.2. - you know that PreSonus designed the StudioLive series to redefine your live mixing experience. In just one package, they managed to put everything a serious live sound engineer just has to have - and that includes first-class effects and processing. You can get your channel settings just the way you like them and instantly recall your settings from show to show. Have to feed in an instrument you don't normally run through your board? No problem. StudioLive 24.4.2 also features built-in presets for a wide range of sources, so you have awesome "launching off" points. If you nail a sound on one channel and want to bring those settings to another channel, it's as easy as copying and pasting - a definite time-saver. Also good to know, if someone accidentally cuts the power while you're tweaking a mix, the StudioLive 24.4.2 has an AutoStore feature that will call back your last settings right when you turn it back on.
PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2 24-channel Digital Mixer/FireWire Interface at a Glance:
Fat Channel gets you a great sound fast
One way the StudioLive 24.4.2 ups the ante over its little brother is in its "Fat Channel" section - this 24-channel StudioLive provides a 4-band, fully parametric EQ plus a studio-worthy gate with Key Filter and Key Listen. The best part about all of this, though, is that you don't have to dive into mile-long menus to take advantage of all the processing. The PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2 has clearly labeled knobs plus a nice multifunction 16-ladder LED display and a separate pan display for getting clear visual feedback whenever you want it.
iPad Wireless Remote Control is convenient both on-stage and in the studio
PreSonus StudioLive mixers feature QMix, which lets you control your mixer's aux sends from up to ten Apple iPhones or iPod Touches! You can even let the performers create their own custom monitor mixes from individual iPhones. With the "Wheel of Me," you can choose multiple "Me" channels and tweak their levels simultaneously. All you need is a Mac or PC running PreSonus Virtual StudioLive software.
Pristine preamps for stellar recordings
We saved talking about the preamplifiers until last for one big reason: these XMAX preamps sound like they belong in the studio. And that's a fitting quality for the hybrid "StudioLive." With 24 high-headroom preamps at your disposal, you'll be able to run big shows while having channels to spare. Keep in mind too that with 24 great-sounding channels to feed the PA system, you can get a mic on just about everything up onstage - including a stereo room feed - that you can also record at the exact same time via FireWire. The net result is that you'll practically have a sweet-sounding, ready-to-sell live CD right from the get go. Like we said, though, the StudioLive 24.4.2 comes with Studio One Artist DAW software, so you can perfect the tracks and add in virtual instrument layers - you can even use the same StudioLive to record a studio album from scratch in your basement.
Universal Control v1.6 update gives you "Smaart" tools to fight feedback, and more
Universal Control v1.6 is a big update for the StudioLive series, adding the Rational Acoustics Smaart realtime analysis tools. Smaart displays are integrated into the Virtual StudioLive software environment, giving you visual indicators when feedback is imminent. It makes it easy to adjust the appropriate band of the graphic EQ to eliminate feedback. Universal Control v1.6 also lets you control talkback on/off and signal routing with Virtual StudioLive, and also adds support for the StudioLive Remote 1.3 app update.
You can't beat the all-in-one nature of the StudioLive 24.4.2 from PreSonus. It really is like having a sweet board, a rack of expensive effects, a complete 24-channel recording system, and a serious studio software package - all in one, and all for an exceptionally reasonable value.
PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2 24-channel Digital Mixer/FireWire Interface Features:
Take care of all your live sound and recording needs with the amazing StudioLive 24.4.2 digital mixer and interface system!

Best Mixer Ever
by Daniel Davidson from ID, USAThis thing can do anything and everything you can image. Not only that, the sound quality coming out of the board is incredible and full. We came from a VLZ3 Mackie to this, and I can't believe the di... read more [+]fference in fidelity. This board is so complex that a studio tech can do whatever he wants, but so simple that an untrained sunday morning volunteer can move the sliders for you. Not to mention the 10 aux buses can be configured for personal monitor mixes, then controlled through iOS devices. Great Board! close [-]

Great board for the price!
by Brian Pouliot from Owens Cross Roads, ALThis is my first digital board for live sound, and I am very pleased with the layout and vast array of settings/options! We use a volunteer sound team and we do not have our own building. The Studio... read more [+]Live factory presets have instantly improved our sound by applying EQ and compression that we didn't have before. I was amazed at the improvement...I could hear it the first time we used the board!

I haven't used Virtual Studio Live yet, but I'm excited about the remote control options as well. This will be helpful for our small team. This board has a TON of features for such a low price point! close [-]
Fantastic Mixing Console for Recording
by Curt DeWolff from Rochester, NYI'm very impressed with this console. I gave it 5 stars because Its extremely well thought out including the software interfaces. Presonus has done an excellent job developing this board to work wel... read more [+]l for both Live and Studio. The learning curve is relatively easy and the flexibility is fantastic. The sound of the console is clean, quiet and very transparent. Having 5 stereo Aux sends and 2 additional FX sends is very helpful especially when you are tracking a band. I like to give the band some reverb in their headphone mix which is easy with the internal FX sends to the internal FX processors. I can also give each musician their own headphone mix and they can control it themselves with the ipod Qmix software provided. I haven't had a chance to put this console through all of the paces but so far I am extremely pleased. close [-]

What can I say, this is an awesome board! I left the 16 space FOH rack at home, because the PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2 covers it all. Compressors, EQ, Gates and effects. I love the ability to record direct into my favorite DAW software via FireWire. What a timesaver and it sounds great!
