I wanted to share with you a great story about my StudioLive 24.4.2
for a gig I was running front of house for the other night.
I got to the venue, and found that there was an old Behringer console there, which I soon worked out to be a serious failure. The musician I was working with was named Willy Porter, and he was very specific about what he wanted in his mix. I knew I needed to make this happen for him, so I went back to my studio and got my 24.4.2, and set it up in the venue with only 40 minutes to doors. I dialed his mix in immediately, using my ipad while mixing in the room, as the console was off in a small booth. I then made custom mixes for his sets, and I was able to record the entire set in Studio One
on my laptop for him. He was absolutely floored at how easily I was able to do this, and the quality of the mix was amazing. He said the built-in reverb was the best and most tunable he’d ever heard in a mixer, and that he’d never had a better experience with a mixer. He was quickly made a PreSonus convert!
I just wanted to share this with you, as I think it is a testament to the quality of what you make. No other product could have done this with the ease and speed that I was able to make use of with the 24.4.2.
