From Live Mixing to Studio Recording!

The PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2AI 24-channel digital mixer will absolutely change the way you approach live mixing while providing you with a full set of truly useful studio-quality recording tools as well. Based around 24 PreSonus XMAX microphone preamps and Active Integration onboard DSP, you can be sure that the StudioLive 24.4.2AI will provide exquisite sound quality and flexible processing. What's more, native LAN (with Wi-Fi) and extensive FireWire 800 recording capability make recording and remote control easy. If you want a competitive, easy-to-use digital mixer for a phenomenal price, the StudioLive 24.4.2AI is for you.

Pristine XMAX preamps for sound reinforcement and recording

Simply put, the 24 Class A XMAX preamps onboard the StudioLive 24.4.2AI sound like they belong in the studio. Their high headroom and low noise floor deliver extremely clean and clear sound you simply wouldn't expect from a live console. Combine that with the StudioLive 24.4.2AI's amazing FireWire recording capabilities, and you can comfortably create live records right as you record. And with the included Studio One 2 Artist DAW software, you can easily record additional tracks, add in virtual instruments, and perform in-depth editing later.

PreSonus Fat Channel processing = great sound, efficiently

The StudioLive 24.4.2AI's Active Integration DSP ups the ante over other digital mixers. With Fat Channel processing for each of your mixer tracks, you get 4-band, fully parametric EQ; extensive dynamics; and much more. PreSonus's AI DSP is so fast and powerful that you can load up two complete Fat Channel processing chains on every mixer channel and A/B them for instant comparison. 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 24.4.2AI's Fat Channel section provides you with clearly labeled knobs, an intuitive multifunction LED display, and a separate pan display for getting clear visual feedback whenever you need it.

Wireless Remote Control: convenient live and studio options

The PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2AI's native wireless LAN lets you connect with Apple iOS devices for incredible remote-control convenience, without needing to cart around your computer or other networking gear. In addition to being able to walk the venue and tweak your mix from the palm of your hand, this gives up to 10 people remote access to the StudioLive 24.4.2AI's QMix function. Sweetwater performing artists love this added accessibility and being able to dial in their own monitor mix onstage with no fancy or expensive additional dedicated hardware.

FREE Plug-in suite for your favorite DAW

PreSonus delivers more value than ever with their mixers and interfaces, thanks to the Studio Magic Plug-in Suite. This extensive collection of seven popular plug-ins covers models of top studio gear from manufacturers such as Maag Audio, Lexicon, and Arturia, adding up to hundreds of dollars of extra value. Punch up your mix bus with Brainworx's bx-opto, add ambience with Eventide's SP2016-inspired Stereo Room reverb, fire up transients with SPL's Attacker, and much more. And since these plug-ins are available in AAX, VST, and AU formats, they're compatible with any DAW you choose.

All in one Amazingness

Buying this mixer was definitely two steps in the right direction. It has just been an amazing mixer with all its amazing features and its flexibility at an affordable price. Seeing how digital will definitely be in the future of pro audio, this a great way to get your feet wet in the world of digital mixers. I bought this for my church and I've never regret replacing our old allen and heath gl2200 mixer. Don't get me wrong that was a great mixer but it could never do as much as this mixer can. I can mix, I can mix from my iPad, I can record and mix at the same time... its just so OP in the amount of things this mixer can do. Every channel (24 channels) has its own fat channel including sub groups (4), auxes (10), fx channels (4) not to mention the stereo buss. Each fat channel contains a low cut, gate, compressor, limiter and EQ. The possibilities are insanely endless. I can definitely hear a huge difference in quality of audio with this mixer than with the gl2200. Everything sounds more clear and transparent and can easily be molded using the tools you are given. I don't hear electronic noise or white noise for that, everything is just clear and as loud as you want. I don't think I can ever go back to an analog mixer since I've been memorized by this product. I was kind of skeptical from the beginning if this mixer would be worth it and it has already paid for itself in what it can do for me. I would highly recommend looking into these mixer if you're looking for an upgrade thats worth it. The only downside to this mixer is that the 16 and 24 channel versions don't come with mute groups. I really wish I could've been given a few mute groups. I was really looking forward to muting people. :( Thats the only downside though. Everything else is simply amazing.

Great value and function

Great unit. Easy to use.

Very Excited

This is the third StudioLive that my church has gotten, the first was a first gen 24 channel, the second a AI gen 32 channel, and now for our third stage we bought this 24 AI. The workflow of this mixer is by far the best I've worked with and I'm excited to use all of the wireless capabilities that it comes with!
