This is a triumph. Imogen Heap recently showed up on Dara O’Briain’s Science Club, and she brought her otherworldly Power glove 2.0 MIDI gyro-accelerometer Kinect-handwear with her. We’re flattered and honored that she’s entrusted the StudioLive 16.0.2 to corral her abstruse mad-science signal chain.
Seriously, how many different technologies do you think are collaborating in tandem here?
Joe Crabtree, Live Sound Engineer for Wishbone Ash, picked up a StudioLive 24.4.2 for Wishbone Ash’s most recent tour. He’s running front-of-house from his StudioLive, and—like many StudioLive owners before him—was able to offload a rack full of old compressors, reverbs, gates… the usual suspects.
Furthermore, he’s really using the board to its fullest. He records every show to Capture, and his band is taking advantage of the remote in-ear monitor control features available via QMix.
Enough chit-chat, just watch his vid. Joe, thanks so much for this!
Hey PreSonus, I finally got my multi-pin panel built and installed. The rack panel sits in a road case that serves as a stand for the StudioLive 24.4.2 mixer. The road case also has a power conditioner, a couple of drawers, wireless in-ear transmitter, etc, and the stage snakes are stored in the bottom of the case during transport.
The big cable on the left in the photo below feeds a fan-out to the mixer. The two smaller multi-pin cables feed 12×4 stage boxes. The XLRs are main outs, sub outs, and Auxes 9 and 10. (Auxes 1-8 are fed to the stage boxes. The mixer sits in a Gator case with the doghouse. Setup is a snap. The large multi-pin cable is stored in the doghouse for transport, so I never have to mess with plugging things in to the back of the mixer!
I play guitar in a band made up of weekend warriors like myself. We play small venues, mostly bar gigs and winery gigs, with an occasional barn party thrown in for good measure. In addition to my guitar playing duties, I’ve also fallen into the role of ‘sound guy’, audio engineer, roadie, booking agent, transportation coordinator, finance manager, and marriage counselor. 😉
When we roll in to a gig, we merely open the doghouse of the mixer case where the fan out snake is stored and always stays connected to the StudioLive. We plug in the big multi-pin to the rack panel, and then roll out the two 35′ sub-snakes and stage boxes that are stored in the bottom of the road case for transport.
Check it out! Paul just wrapped up this great set of five videos describing the latest and greatest Rational Acoustics technologies that can now be added for FREE to the StudioLive 24.4.2 or 16.4.2 mixer that you already own… or the one you’re thinking about getting.
Try each of these features once, and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them.

We exhibited at Inter BEE 2012. Recognized as a professional show for audio, video and communications, Inter BEE has established itself as an international exhibition showcasing top-level domestic and overseas broadcast, video, audio and lighting equipment as well as peripheral applications and solutions all under one roof.
We displayed two sections for music production solutions: medium-format live solution and small-format live solution. StudioLive and Studio One was most popular! The visitors enjoyed the sound and hands-on experience. We obtained approximately 700 leads! I attached some photo for your reference. Thank you for your support.
Up for some funky shred? Because Scott’s StudioLive 24.4.2 sure was. Sounds like a studio track, but this is allllll live. 🙂

Hey PreSonus! We finished the EPK, all recorded live from our PreSonus 16.4.2. Hope y’all dig. Bobby Sparks was on the gig as you will see!

“Since switching over to the PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2 Scott Szeryk has never sounded better in the studio or on the stage… Szeryk’s latest release “Guitar Manifesto” is evidence of just how good the PreSonus Studio Live sounds!” Give it a listen!
Since the mid-90s, I had been using the Tascam M3500 as my main mixing desk for the home studio, but was becoming a bit weary of its compatibility with modern-day recording setups. When I heard how great the XMAX preamps sounded on a StudioLive, I was instantly sold. Not to mention the insane power and functionality of the board, especially for live FOH! Changing over to the StudioLive 24.4.2was an easy, practical decision…The StudioLive not only shines in the studio but also in live applications! We were able to do spot- on monitor checks, even before the band had arrived at the venue for sound check, by playing back program material from shows previously recorded in Capture. The integration of Universal Control also meant that the onstage players could also control their own monitor mix via iPad SL Remote. There were a few times when we were able to Mix FOH on the iPad when there was a less-than-ideal location for the board at the venue. We rely heavily on the PreSonus StudioLive for recording all of our shows. Check out the latest DVD “Scott Szeryk live at Aeolian Hall!”
