New Low Prices on Select StudioLive Mixers

New Low Prices on StudioLive Mixers: AI Console Mixers and StudioLive 16.0.2 in the USAStudioLive Mixers Lowest Price

Last season’s StudioLive AI mixer and StudioLive 16.0.2 mixer rebate offer was so popular that we decided to stop making it a limited-time thing, and just lower the price down on these StudioLive Mixers once and for all. Here’s the latest pricing:

  • StudioLive 32.4.2 AI: $2299
  • StudioLive 24.4.2 AI: $1899
  • StudioLive 16.4.2 AI $1599
  • StudioLive 16.0.2: $899

This price drop is effective in the USA only. Pricing outside the US will vary by dealer and region.

If you’ve been considering a digital mixer but haven’t checked in on StudioLive for a while, it’s worth mentioning that the entire StudioLive line won the Musical Merchandise Review (MMR) Dealer Choice Award for Recording Equipment Line of the Year for 2015. Furthermore, recent firmware updates now allow the StudioLive AI Console Mixers to connect to StudioLive RM- and RML-series rack mixers in Stage Box Mode. And of course, StudioLive AI still offers the always-improving remote iPad control options that helped make them such a hit. All StudioLive mixers also include Studio One 3 Artist, our award-winning digital audio workstation.

But hey, don’t take it from us. Here’s what some StudioLive AI reviewers had to say:

Summer of StudioLiveStock: Save up to $700 on StudioLive Mixers!

studiolivestock

All summer long (and then some) select dealers in the USA are offering discounts of Kozmic proportions on StudioLive mixers. These deals include savings of up to $700, which is enough to get you and several high school friends into the Guns’n’Roses reunion tour, and almost enough to get you and a friend to Oldchella in October.

Just so things aren’t all purple-hazey, let’s be clear. This includes the following StudioLive Mixers:

  • StudioLive 32.4.2 AI
  • StudioLive24.4.2 AI
  • StudioLive16.4.2 AI
  • StudioLive 16.0.2
  • StudioLive RM32 AI
  • StudioLive RM16 AI

One of these is the right mixer for you. If you haven’t checked in on the StudioLive mixers for a while, take a look at the below. We’ve done a lot to add features to these boards in the last few years via firmware and software updates. Some recent feature additions include:

  • Stagebox mode in the RM series
  • Cascade RM mixers for up to 64 channels via AVB
  • Remote control of RM mixer preamps via Studio One
  • Smaart Measurement Technology in UC Surface
  • Networking between StudioLive AI console and RM mixers

Get the Studiolive 16.0.2 for a Reduced Price Until Dec. 31

StudioLive1602_300x300_10-19-15_RR01I like to think of The StudioLive 16.0.2 as the scrappy little brother of the StudioLive family. Well into the StudioLive AI era, this Classic model is still one of the best-selling digital mixers we offer.

Why? In short, the 16.0.2 punches with heavyweight power in a bantamweight frame. You get sixteen inputs and four Aux Outs, the same XMAX preamps and Fat Channels found in more expensive StudioLive mixers, and Smaart Measurement Technology via VSL. This all makes it ideal for both project studios and mobile PA/DJ rigs. Pound for pound, it’s arguably the most feature-rich mixer in the line. And don’t forget the 16.0.2’s secret weapon that no other StudioLive mixer in the line has: MIDI control! You can adjust mixer settings live, in-performance, with a standard MIDI controller.

While more wallop for your wallet has always been part of what makes the 16.0.2 what it is, we’ve made that end of the deal even better for a while. Until Dec. 31, we’ve dropped the price on the StudioLive 16.0.2 for customers in the USA down by a hundred bucks to a mere $899.

Take one home. With a little training, your productions will be punching well above your weight class. Just make sure to bring in this new gear before the New Year—this offer ends December 31.

 

New StudioLive Handbook Available

Mixer aficionados the world over could always stand to learn a new trick or two, and at the rate that technology changes, sometimes we all find ourselves with a little catching up to do. Good thing, then, that Alfred Music has recently released the StudioLive Mixer handbook, which has a little something for everyone. If you’re using one of the classic StudioLive mixers or the new AI mixers, you will find something of value as the book covers both! Furthermore, it’s broken down into a simple three-tier arrangement: a general overview, live sound, and studio recording—including a nice bonus chapter on mic placement.

You’ll also find info on getting the most out of using your StudioLive with external devices like your laptop and iPhone, feedback elimination, remote iPad control, and recording your shows.

Here’s a couple freebies to get ya hooked:

With the publication of this tome, renowned engineer/producer Bobby Owsinski has cemented his stature as a dyed-in-the-wires StudioLive expert. After all, he wrote the book on it, right?

2013 ASCAP Songwriting Retreat

PreSonus was proud to be a part of the 2013 ASCAP Songwriters Retreat, held September 25th to October 4th at the 14th-century Château Marouatte in the Dordogne region of France—an inspiring place for the lyrically inclined.

And that’s the point. ASCAP has designed this retreat to bring out the best in talented writers. This year’s 30+ participants were divided into different groups, every day, to write and record, keeping collaborative spirits fresh and healthy. At the end of the session, attendees return home with renewed artistic vigor, their hearts and hard drives full of song.

In fact, a dozen of the songs written at the camp this year are already on hold for major label artists, including The Temper Trap, Kelly Clarkson, Melanie Fiona, Nylo, Jessie Malakouti, and Jon Bellion.

PreSonus was happy to provide a metric heap of equipment to foster the creative process, including:

Photos from the event follow, as well as a kind thank-you video from the songwriters themselves. You’re welcome, folks, and we hope you wrote enough hits to fill a 14th-century dining hall. Read more about it here.

The StudioLive Digital Mixer for Theatre

The StudioLive mixers are an ideal choice for running audio for your theate productions!

StudioLive mixers are ideal for the theatre because they are easy to use, allow you to save and recall production scenes, and the integrated software tools allow anyone to run sound. This video demonstrates how school and community theatres can benefit from using a StudioLive to enhance their production and rehearsals.

Bill Sage at Pro Media UltraSound on the StudioLive

[This just in from Bill Sage—Sales & Design Engineer for Pro Media Ultrasound.]

Hey PreSonus – 

I used to be a touring and recording engineer. I now design and sell AV systems. I’m a busy guy, with a full-time sales job and a marriage.  I mostly do sound for friends’ bands or benefits for charities.

Here are some reasons I am liking Studio One and the StudioLive 16.0.2. I had the opportunity to use one for a benefit a few months ago.

Running Universal Control on my Apple Powerbook, I was able to quickly get set up and my mix together in a matter of minutes. I didn’t even read the manual, and it worked flawlessly—and more importantly, it sounded great!

After the gig, I read the manual… and I had no idea that the StudioLive 16.0.2 even had iPad control, which got me even more curious. I took the plunge and bought the 16.0.2.

I also put the band back together. I am playing bass and singing, the other guys are not engineers so  I am keeping busy!  I use the 16.0.2 and Capture to record basic tracks or rehearsals. Capture is great because I only have to press Record and Stop. Capture lets me concentrate on playing, instead of engineering.

Once home from rehearsal, I import the files into Studio One. Again, it is really simple to get good-sounding tracks. The software is really intuitive, so once again I didn’t read the manual much, but I did find the videos on the internet really helpful.

I have had the “big three” recording softwares at one time or another. This by far is the simplest, most intuitive mixer and software that I have ever used.

I would highly recommend the 16.0.2 and the Studio One Software to anyone.

Cheers!
