This table is a simple and intuitive, the manual is not really necessary though very well done. It contains the same tutorials for the sound, the use of effects and compressors, the choice of microphones and even ... Jambalaya recipe for 20 people (yes!). There is a manual paper handling and a more comprehensive PDF.

The table comes with software Capture, Control and Universal StudioLive and the manuals that come with it as a PDF.


The console is a remarkable transparency, it does not blow, equalizer, effects and compressors are highly efficient.


Owner of its big sister the StudioLive 24.4.2, I bought this console for home and small clubs. Did not want or need to lug around a big console in most configurations where I play I wanted something light, I can carry in a single bag without breaking my back and without taking up too much space in the car or on stage. Achieved has found its place in the boot of my Audi A3 (without lowering the seats) to my guitar amp (a George Tornado Duo a good size), my pedalboard and my accessories such as guitar stand, microphone stands and tote bag with various cables and microphones!

I got it there a couple of weeks and I immediately used on stage the next day and then recording three days later.

Likes: almost everything, ease of use, size and light weight, quality preamps that go far beyond the competition from Yamaha and Tascam, ergonomics, MIDI ...

I regret: the lack of motorized faders (as the other two consoles) but it also explains the very reasonable price of the baby. On the other hand, the volumes, once stored, electronically back in their place, an LED display lets you know where the cursors were positioned at the storage. Another regret, the seen-meter input mode only pre-fader and not post-fader, but again, on a table as compact and tight in budget, we will not complain. We have money for butter and butter but the dairy creamer and it would certainly be more expensive and in this case we can choose then the 16.4.2 or 24.4.2 ...

The value for money is good and the tables Presonus being well above their Japanese competitors for me the choice was obvious. Now everything is about value for money. I was where I worked with Yamaha, Tascam, Soundcraft, and I'm definitely won over by these tables.

Having already made an album of jazz (Corsica Jazz Project) with 24.4.2, I noticed the quality of this material. I worked so far with modules MOTU, I find the preamps Presonus of a much higher quality: clarity, a larger sample, and as the "heat" and more, have taken a quality Analog almost breath less. Club, the 16.0.2 and works wonders at home, it allows me to work in comfort.

Obviously I regret absolutely not my choice, but having already used to his big sister I knew where I was getting into.
