OVERVIEW

The most exciting small-format digital mixer on the planet!

Presonus’s StudioLive 24.4.2 and 16.4.2 changed the game, offering amazing performance and ease of use for a great price. Now Presonus has packed the same audio quality, performance, seamlessly integrated software (including remote control) into a smaller, even more affordable package.

Small size. Bigger possibilities.
In a “footprint” of less than 2 square feet (0.19 m2), the compact, 16-channel StudioLive 16.0.2 offers 8 mono input channels and 4 stereo channels and provides 12 XMAX Class A solid-state mic preamps. (Well, okay, it actually has 13 XMAX preamps; the Talkback input has one, too.)

But don't let its size fool you; the 16.0.2 is jam-packed with features and processing power, employs the same workflow and easy-to-use mixing-surface design as the bigger StudioLive boards, and sounds every bit as good, with the same high-definition, wide-dynamic-range, digital converters.

The ease of analog meets the power of digital.
When Presonus designed StudioLive, one of the primary goals was to provide a familiar interface that would keep all critical controls visible and accessible — not buried inside multiple menus.

Sit down at a StudioLive 16.0.2, and you see easily accessed, color-coded function buttons for Mute and Solo; rotary trim controls; and clearly labeled, individual knobs for EQ and dynamics processing. Aux sends have their own physical controls. Every channel has a big, bright meter display. The master section comes complete with Talkback, Monitor, Cue, and a choice of control-room sources — looks just like the master section on an analog board but with far more power and flexibility.

Bottom line: If you’ve ever used an analog mixer, you’ll be right at home with a 16.0.2. And even if you’ve never used a mixer before, you’ll quickly be able to create professional mixes and recordings.

XMAX Class A Preamplifiers
The XMAX preamplifier runs on power rails of 30V. Most off-the-shelf, op-amp-based designs run on power rails of 10V to 18V. Higher-voltage power rails deliver more headroom, deeper lows, smoother highs, and a richer overall sound.

Discrete components — not op-amps. Presonus only use genuine transistors, resistors, and capacitors for ultra-low noise and transparency. Op-amps add noise, coloration, and harshness to a signal.

Class A circuitry. Class A circuits have no crossover distortion and deliver purer, clearer, and more musical results than the Class AB designs that are found in many preamps.

The net result of the XMAX preamp design is high headroom, low noise, wide dynamic range, extended frequency response, and — most important — musicality and transparency, with smooth highs; solid, deep lows; and everything in between.

All of that is before the StudioLive even begins to color and process the original signal. StudioLive's Fat-Channel processing has made a major splash in the pro audio industry, garnering universal acclaim for its ease of use, exacting audio integrity and ultimate musicality. With 4-band EQs, compressors, limiters and gates, DSP effects, 6 aux buses, 4 sub-groups, extensive LED metering, mixer save and recall, channel-strip save/recall/copy/paste, talkback, and more, the StudioLive breaks new boundaries for music performance and production.


JetPLL synchronization technology
Ease of use and powerful features only count if the sound quality is equally impressive. After all, it really comes down to how clean the signal path is and how well the mixing 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.

Ultra-high-headroom, 32-bit floating-point processing is used for all digital mixing. All analog inputs and outputs use the highest-quality digital converters available, with +118 dB dynamic range, for spectacular sonic results and unmatched musicality.

Synchronization to your computer is stable and robust, thanks to JetPLL synchronization technology. JetPLL incorporates noise shaping to virtually remove all audio-band jitter, ensuring near-perfect clock performance and optimal converter performance when networking two or more digital-audio devices. JetPLL quickly locks to any digital format through a wide range of frequencies and is extremely robust and tolerant of wide variations in clock frequencies. As a result, you’ll experience better stereo separation and clearer, more transparent audio.

A gigantic console in a small package — thanks to the Fat Channel
The StudioLive 16.0.2 may be compact, but its Fat Channel is loaded with a high-pass filter on every channel and aux (22 total), phase reverse for each channel strip (12), and a gate, compressor, limiter, and 3-band parametric EQ for every channel, aux output, FX bus, and main output (24 of each!).

Engaged by pressing any Select button, the Fat Channel features extensive equalization and dynamics processing for every input channel, every aux output, the FX outputs, and the main outputs. The high-pass filter and EQ algorithms deliver extremely musical results. Also included in the Fat Channel are limiters, plus compressors and a downward expander, providing extensive dynamics control.

To let you get the most from all of this processing power without descending into menu purgatory, Presonus designed the Fat Channel with clearly labeled, physical knobs; an ingenious, multifunction, 16-ladder LED display; an ingenious, multifunction, 16-ladder LED display; an in-your-face Selected Channel display; and even a separate horizontal pan display. It’s easy to instantly access any function and get clear, visible feedback.

Not just effects. Effects you’d expect from a $600 standalone processor. You get two programmable, 32-bit floating point, stereo DSP effects engines, loaded with 50 reverb, delay, and time-based effects presets that you can really use.

The reverbs are so rich and detailed that you feel like you’re there. Delays are precise. Slap echo sounds like old-skool tape effects. All 50 effects have easy-to-use parameter adjustment, tap tempo, and store and recall selection for the ultimate in creative flexibility.

The StudioLive 16.0.2 also sports a stereo 31-band graphic equalizer on the main outputs, so you can compensate for room acoustics and speaker response.

Whether StudioLive’s dozens of signal processors and 50 DSP effect presets were on gigundo channel strips, in a whopping rack of outboard gear, or neatly condensed into the Fat Channel, they have a lot of settings to remember and reset at every performance. That’s where the power of digital comes in: StudioLive never forgets.

What was then is now: complete store and recall.
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. StudioLive solves this problem by letting you save all of your digital settings for quick setup and recall.

The 16.0.2's Fat Channel is well stocked with compressors, limiters, gates, phase reverse, high-pass filters, and 3-band semi-parametric EQ. Two stereo, 32-bit floating-point effects processors deliver delay and reverb effects.

StudioLive solves the problem getting of a Perfect Mix by letting you save all of your digital settings for quick setup and recall.

Save Scenes that include every setting on the mixer. Save just the Fat Channel settings. Copy-and-paste settings across multiple channels and buses. Save individual DSP effects for ultimate ease, speed, and control.

This means that for fixed applications like clubs, churches, and auditoriums, you can always count on the same sound. It means that you can fine-tune Scenes for different songs and call them up instantly. And it lets rank amateur volunteers run the StudioLive and achieve pro-quality sound.

Presonus has included a whole library of individual channel settings (sample listing) as starting points for optimizing the sound of instruments, vocals, and spoken word. And an Automatic AutoStore feature regularly saves your current settings in case the power fails.

And of course you can store an unlimited number of settings and scenes on your laptop with the included Virtual StudioLive software.

Presonus’s first compact mixer with MIDI control from a footpedal. Being able to control the 16.0.2 from an iPad or iPhone is cool — unless you hands are busy playing your instrument. What if you want to change from lots of reverb to a little bit of delay? What if you just need more volume through your P.A.? What if you want to change the mix for a solo?

A glance at the StudioLive 16.0.2 rear panel reveals that "Junior" offers something the two bigger boards don't: MIDI In and Out. You can recall Scenes from a DAW using MIDI Program Changes, control the main output volume and effects level, and even mute effects between songs — all thanks to the magic of MIDI control.

Use a MIDI footpedal (or DAW) to control:
Main Output Volume
Effects A and B Output Volume
Effects A and B Setting
Effects A and B Assign to Mains
Effects Mute between Songs
Scene switching

Think of the possibilities for making your performances more exciting and varied — all without needing a separate soundperson.

More than a mixer: an integrated system.
The 16.0.2 integrates a 16x16 FireWire interface and comes with Capture, Studio One Artist recording and production software, and Virtual StudioLive, bidirectional control software, and it works great with the free SL Remote iPad and iPhone control apps.

Because of Presonus’s powerful, integrated, free software, StudioLive digital mixers can do far more than their competition. There are three and a half parts to this unique system:
• Virtual StudioLive for laptop control and editor/librarian functions
• StudioLive Remote for iPad and iPhone (free apps used with Virtual StudioLive)
• Capture 1.1 for two-click multi-track recording and playback
• Studio One Artist Digital Audio Workstation for enhancing your recordings (or for direct recording from StudioLive 16.0.2)

Virtual StudioLive: The magic of computer control.
Written exclusively for StudioLive mixers, Virtual StudioLive (VSL) provides a complete visual representation of the mixer, allowing you to control the features with a mouse, trackpad, or trackball on a FireWire-equipped Mac or PC.

Wirelessly control auxiliary mixes with QMix.
With QMix, you can enjoy wireless remote control of any PreSonus StudioLive mixer's aux sends from up to ten Apple iPhones or iPod touches! Let performers create their monitor mixes from individual iPhones. With the Wheel of Me, you can select multiple “Me” channels and control their levels simultaneously. Requires a Mac or PC running PreSonus Virtual StudioLive. Available free from the Apple App Store.

      My 5 piece classic rock band used this for the first time last night at our usual club. The results were amazing. The sound quality and lack of feedback were obvious. The pre-amps and features of the board give totally professional results. It does take time to learn as the manual is not so good. Great product though.

            I had got this thinking that I could see all inputs and outputs within windows recording and playback devices however I was very wrong there.
            Also I was getting random clicks and pops with my system, even after trying the Belkin firewire card they recommend using on the PreSonus support website.

            After days of trying to get this to work, I could not, nor would it works best for my situation...
            I would love to have it work as it sounded really good, but it was not worth the price without working 100%.

            Great Mixer for live and studio

            By ben becker

            from See style

            Comments about PreSonus StudioLive 16.0.2 Digital Mixing System:

            This thing has been great so far. We use this a practice every week and I mix when we play live so we use the pa to our advantage. We use the 16.0.2, 2 450W powered mains and 3 150W powered monitors. This setup is pretty portable and sets up quick.
            The 16.0.2 has been proven to be easy to work with and allow me to run effect for our vocal mics and bass through the STEREO mains - ping pong delay don't do much for me in mono.
            We mic everything up and record to an older PC using Capture (included) with great success.
            We have used it live once and it sounded so much better than most shows at the same venue and recieved compliments on the sound.
            I have been using this mixer live once a week for almost a year and am still finding cool thing that it can do!
            The preamps work well, the channel strips are great - storing and loading presets is easy! Tweaking is easy!
            The AUX/FX sends good once you understand how to set up the signal path for your application - you gotta use the menu! For our band 4 AUX mixes are all we need and they are easy to work with live.
            The FX work well for us and we use them alot. mostly reverb and delay - the tap tempo button is GREAT!
            The interface/metering/display is great! Easy to use live - the little BNC light socket came in handy untill i learned the mixer better. We use Capture every time we play and I take the tracks home and mix them - no one has beed disappointed by the results - again EASY!
            This is my first piece of Presonus gear - I hope is is as good as their other products have proven to be. Had to update firmware and such when I got the mixer but it was fine.
            A bit pricy but if it holds up it will prove to be a great value.

            Digital is definitely the way to go

            Comments about PreSonus StudioLive 16.0.2 Digital Mixing System:

            As I mentioned, this has been a great experience with this board so far. The boys sound great. Have to learn a little more about how much this thing can do just because I am a beginner at this stuff, but I wanted to write this review so that others would not hesitate to go with this digital powerhouse.
            The features on this thing are incredible. We are finding new things as we go. Intitially, we were a little scared to use the board because it looks complicated and I am an amateur sound "dad". Basically, we watched a video on the internet and picked it up right away. The kids have a 4 piece band. Lead singer, lead guitar, drums and bass. They have played different venues getting started and we have seen the house bands or other bands dragging in loads and loads of racks and boxes, all connected with at least a million wires and running all over the place. We decided that with today's technology, there had to be a better way to go. With a lot of research, we chose to go with this mixer. We literally bring in one box. It has all the features packed right in. Also, its very compact,not as big as a sheet of plywood like some other mixers. Today's technology at its best. We paired this up with a couple of powered QSC153's. Again, to cut down on all the power amps and wires and even more racks. As a result, we are set up and ready to go in no time at all. This mixer has more than enough features to handle any of our situations, and then some. We haven't even gotten into the recording aspect yet, but I know that will be great just based on some of the reviews I have read.
            We have had no issues with the quality of this board. Everything feels like it will last. Like I mentioned above, I am an amatuer sound guy but the quality seems to be great compared to other boards I've played with in the store.
            I have to say, as a parent to a beginning band but with great potential (not your everyday kid band), I thought it would be good to get them started out right. That has wokred. Although this board is more expensive than the old analog mixers, there is really nothing else to buy so I thought we were way ahead with this approach.

            Awesome product!
            I bought this for my studio for recording and I love it! It sounds great and I love the fact that I can add reverb from the mixer to headphone/monitor mixes. It's a cool work flow.

            I'm also using it for band rehearsals and small gigs. I highly recommend this mixer to anyone!

            It's built like a tank, easy to use and sounds great.

            with its setbacks its a great board, its not the 16.4.2 but it will get the job done with 700 dollars left in your bank for decent drum mics, or a crossover
            Being a 16.4.2 owner i can say a few things of what i was expecting... I was expecting a 16.4.2 without busses and without 16 channels... which is close but not exactly what i got. Heres the ticket. YES it is the same when using it live, everything you would expect to see on each channel is still there... heres where you loose out, the recording. See the 16.4.2 allows you to record each channel, each bus, and the master out. The 16.0.2 allows only to record the channels. What that means is, say you record your show, then roll it back and mix it at home. reloading your Reverb efx, comp etc. Then when you want to record that mix as is.... but you cant... You cant record the master outs. So be prepared to buy a second interface to analog XLR to in order to record your mix AS IS.
            other wise if you have a bunch of VST plugs you cant wait to use in your DAW, then its perfect. I just like the reverbs on the board. there decent.
            great! just like a mini-me version of the 16.4.2. ive owned the 16.4.2 5 years glitch free
            went from 3 racks of gear to a tote bag... by back loves me
