StudioLive AI Series

Digital mixing: the next generation

With a powerful user interface, unrivaled sound quality, amazing DSP performance, direct Wi-Fi and LAN communication, fast and intuitive workflow, onboard FireWire s800 interface, and tightly integrated software suite for Mac®, Windows®, and iOS®, StudioLive™ AI-series digital mixers create a streamlined working environment for both live and studio use.

 

Redesigned from the ground up, these state-of-the-art mixers provide analog workflow with extensive dual signal processing on every channel and bus and actively integrated software that solves real-world problems and lets you record and distribute what you mix. Configurable networking and communications option cards ensure your investment won’t be outdated as new technologies emerge.

 

In short, StudioLive AI-series mixers deliver the very best in digital mixing and recording technology and make it all incredibly intuitive and easy to learn and use.

 

The future is Active Integration™

StudioLive AI-series mixers start with all the strengths that made the first generation of StudioLive mixers famous: powerful, surface-driven interface; loads of DSP processing and analog I/O; and layerless mixing, thanks to dedicated mix buses. Then they push the technology to the next level. So while the three StudioLive AI-series mixers — the StudioLive 32.4.2AI, 24.4.2AI, and 16.4.2AI —look and feel much like their non-AI counterparts, they have been reengineered from the ground up with far more capabilities and computing power.

 

The difference is Active Integration™ (AI), a complete, networked, tightly integrated hardware/software ecosystem in which every touch point in the system communicates to enhance the user experience and solve practical problems in ways not previously possible.

 

Actively integrated software.

PreSonus StudioLive AI-series mixers are tightly integrated with an entire suite of free, state-of-the-art software that helps you mix and record better and have more fun doing it. No other digital mixer anywhere near this price class comes close with respect to software integration and features. In fact, most digital mixers in much higher price classes don’t come close.

 

Wi-Fi and wired networking.

PreSonus StudioLive™ AI-series digital mixers’ Active Integration™ technology includes powerful real-time, direct, wired and Wi-Fi remote control over a variety of features, using free Mac®, Windows®, and iOS® software. And unlike previous StudioLive mixers, you don’t need to have a Mac or PC attached to have wireless control!

 

Safe, sane, and secure.

Powerful networking and wireless remote control is great—but what if someone tries to hack into your Wi-Fi system and take control of the show or some clown attempts to play FOH engineer when you step away from the mixing station? You can put the kibosh on that, thanks to the StudioLive AI mixer’s security features!

 

A gigantic console in a small package.

If a StudioLive AI mixer were an analog console, it would have 4-foot-long channel strips packed with knobs and buttons or it would require a massive outboard rack of expensive signal processors!

 

That's because each channel and bus has its own studio-grade compressor, limiter, gate/expander, and 4-band parametric equalizer. Each input channel, aux and FX bus also has a highpass filter, and input channels have polarity invert.

It all fits into one remarkable processing and routing section known as the Fat Channel.

 

Unlike most competing digital mixers, there are no limitations or compromises, no shared resources, no figuring out what processing is available where. You have all of the processing available at all times.

 

Because StudioLive AI mixers have so much more processing power and blazing-fast RAM than previous StudioLive models, you can create two complete sets of EQ and dynamics-processor settings for every channel and bus and then make quick A/B comparisons at the touch of the Alt EQ & Dyn button. Does your guitar player use a Strat for some songs and Les Paul for others? Don’t use up two channels, create two completely different Fat Channel settings for each guitar and access them with the press of a button before he’s got the next guitar strap on.

 

It’s like having two complete channel strips on every input and output—but simpler and more efficient!

 

Effects you'd expect from a $600 stand-alone processor. Or two.

You get four programmable, 32-bit, stereo DSP effects engines—two of them loaded with reverbs and two armed with delay effects that you can really use. Each stereo processor has its own dedicated internal FX bus, and you can use all four all of the time without compromising other resources.

 

The reverbs are so rich and detailed that you feel like you're there. Delays are precise. Slap echo sounds like old-school tape effects. And all 50 preset effects have easy-to-use parameter adjustments, tap tempo, store, recall, and Scene selection for ultimate creative flexibility.

 

Plentiful graphic EQ.

With StudioLive AI-series mixers, you get graphic EQ on every aux bus and on the mains—all at the same time, without compromising other resources. In addition, each graphic EQ has an A/B option, so you can, for example, boost the bass for a rock band and then switch over to a “smiley face” for intermission program music.

 

Connect to VSL-AI over a FireWire connection, and you can use the Smaart Spectra™ Spectrograph and RTA and StudioLive EQs to quickly kill feedback building up in floor wedges before the musicians even notice it!

 

A wealth of dedicated analog I/O.

View the rear of a StudioLive AI-series mixer, and you’ll see a familiar jackfield, with individual XLR mic and ¼” line inputs and TRS insert points on every channel, along with a wealth of other dedicated inputs and outputs. Every input channel and bus send has its own dedicated jack—no sharing, no compromises.

 

Inside, it's pure PreSonus.

Getting a great-sounding mix depends partly on your skill (assisted by StudioLive’s ease of use, features, and integrated software) and partly how good the mixer’s microphone preamps and converters are, how clean the signal path is, and how well the algorithms perform.

That's why you should choose a digital mixer made by PreSonus, a company already famous for its analog mic preamps, pristine digital interfaces, and well-regarded signal processors. And because StudioLive AI mixers were redesigned from the ground up, they sound even better than their predecessors.

 

The StudioLive’s XMAX™ Class A preamplifiers deliver more headroom, deeper lows, smoother highs, and a richer overall sound than the preamps found in competing mixers. High-headroom, 32-bit floating-point processing is used for all digital mixing. The high-end Burr-Brown digital converters on every input and output are state-of-the art, with 118 dB dynamic range.

 

The ease of analog meets the power of digital.

Among the employees of PreSonus, there are more band members than you can shake a mic stand at. All of us have lived with conventional mixers for years. And many of us have struggled with the less-than-intuitive interfaces of earlier digital mixers, with their bank switching, layers, nested menus, etc. Many of today’s digital mixers have the same problems.

 

When you’re mixing a live event or have an artist in the studio, you need to be able to work quickly. So when we designed StudioLive, one of our primary goals was to provide a familiar interface that would keep all critical controls visible and accessible —not buried inside multiple menus. And the few times you do need to access a menu, StudioLive AI-series mixers quickly get you to the page you need.

 

Complete store and recall—instantly.

Two factors work against getting that Perfect Mix with an analog mixer. First, the Perfect Mix can be hard to reproduce a week, day, or hour after you perfect it. And second, a good mix should be dynamic: levels, effects, and EQ should be tailored to each song or segment of the show, service, or presentation. This adds up to a lot of settings to remember and reset at every performance.

 

That's where the power of digital comes in: StudioLive lets you save all of your digital settings for quick setup and recall. Unlike some digital mixers, StudioLive makes it very quick and easy.

 

The StudioLive 32.4.2AI makes saving and recalling scenes even faster and more convenient with six user-assignable Quick Scene buttons. We added Quick Scenes to VSL-AI for StudioLive 24.4.2AI and 16.4.2AI users too; with Active Integration, StudioLive AI-series mixers aren’t limited to how many buttons will fit on the control surface.

 

To further ease and speed your workflow, we’ve included a whole library of individual channel settings as starting points for optimizing the sound of instruments, vocals, and spoken word. New in StudioLive AI-series mixers, these presets, as well as your custom settings, can be organized and browsed by category so you can quickly find your favorite vocal preset without scrolling through horn and guitar presets. An Automatic AutoStore feature regularly saves your current settings in case the power fails.
