From Live Mixing to Studio Recording

The PreSonus StudioLive 32.4.2AI 32-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 32 PreSonus XMAX microphone preamps and Active Integration onboard DSP, you can be sure that the StudioLive 32.4.2AI 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 32.4.2AI is for you.

PreSonus StudioLive 32.4.2AI 32-channel Digital Mixer at a Glance:
  • Pristine XMAX preamps for sound reinforcement and recording
  • PreSonus Fat Channel processing delivers great sound quickly and efficiently
  • Wireless Remote Control provides convenient options live and in the studio
Pristine XMAX preamps for sound reinforcement and recording

Simply put, the 32 Class A XMAX preamps onboard the StudioLive 32.4.2AI 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 32.4.2AI'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 delivers great sound quickly and efficiently

The StudioLive 32.4.2AI'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 32.4.2AI'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 provides convenient options live and in the studio

The PreSonus StudioLive 32.4.2AI'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 32.4.2AI's QMix function. That means each performer can potentially tweak his or her own monitor mix onstage with no fancy or expensive additional dedicated hardware.

PreSonus StudioLive 32.4.2AI 32-channel Digital Mixer Features:
  • 32 Class A XMAX microphone preamps deliver studio-quality sound
  • USB wireless LAN included for direct wireless remote control of laptops, iPad, or iPhone/iPod touch
  • 4 onboard digital effects processors let you add dimension to your mixes
  • Integrated FireWire 800 interface makes live recording easy
  • 2 Fat Channel processors per channel provide highpass filter, gate and compressor, limiter, and 4-band parametric EQ
  • Smaart Measurement Technology integration lets you quickly tune your system to any room
  • Direct integration with PreSonus's Capture 2.x multitrack recorder and Studio One 2.x DAW
  • Optional Thunderbolt, AVB, and Dante cards provide easy integration into advanced setups
  • Includes Studio One 2 Artist and Capture 2 included
The PreSonus StudioLive 32.4.2AI gives you everything you need live or in the studio!

Up and running with my new Presonus Studio Live 32-4-2-AI

If I had ten thumbs, they'd all be up! Way to Go Presonus. This mixer has made my music productivity go thru the roof. The Pre's on all the channels sound awesome and clean. All the rotary knobs are solid and have the right ammount of reistance. The fat channel is so easy to work with versus rack strips with tiny knobs in dark places, it so much easier on my aging eyes. Having 14 aux channels is great. They can be paired with the link button for stereo aux outs or just mono , providing the ability to give each musician in the sudio his own separate head phone mix. With it is Studio One and Capture which appear to be very stable. This along with a Mackie Universal Pro MCU & a Big Knob, I finally have a reliable DAW which won't bomb out on me. Now I can patch in large arrangements and or have all the instruments in my studio pre-patched & tweeked, sounding sweet and ready to go. No more having to repatch and do soundchecks, this machine relieves all those time consuming tasks. It works awesome with Sonar X2 and Protools as well as the Studio One / Capture package. I could go on and on.

Assume

The board has been an assume improvement over our previous board. We are still learning how to use all of the features and have no regrets on the decision to go with the 32.4.2AI. Looking forward to adding our PreSonus AI speakers.

Wow!

WOW! My new 32.4.2 AI sound board is more than I expected. Many functions and I'm sure this is the better investment compared to Behringer 32. This mixing system has so many functions and EFX I think I need to go back to school regardless everything easy to learn and use once they become better known how to use them. Also, thank you Sweetwater for making this board affordable through your finance plan. I can't wait to try it at the next band practice for the group I do sound re-enforcement for and at a New Years Eve dance they are performing. I can't wait to see what I can do with this unit. A definite recommendation to anyone considering buing one. Ten stars for this unit.
