yoTrakkz's review"great mixer"

PreSonus StudioLive 16.4.2
Wow, where to start, I've owned the Presonus Studio Live 16.4 board for about 2 months and have come to the conclusion that I just didn't know how good sound could be without a rack full of gear. I'm using this for FoH sound in a youth facility, also recording all services live, and doubling as a studio mixer to lay down tracks.


1) Amazing preamps, they sound great recording at least as good as previous presonus problems and better than the digi003 IMHO. 2) Racks full of onboard gear easy to customize for your studio/live use, save, copy, delete start from scratch, use presets, digital effects, they thought of everything with this board. Chances are if it's not included there will be a firmware update for it soon. 3) Can link up to 4 Studio Live consoles (Plus they have a metal piece that holds them together to make it 'feel' like 1 console) this is a truely innovative design, record up to 32 tracks simultaneously @ 44.1k DAWS standard will dump right into your favorite audio suite. 4) Generous 16 XLR inputs, 6 Aux Sends, plus 2 built in Effects Sends, 2 Stereo Aux Returns for additional effects/processing, 4 Sub Groups, Tape in and out great for MP3 hook-up, individual firewire returns to nearly anything on the board so if you want to sequence tracks it's a snap.


Sounds Amazing, very realistic.


I have no doubt this board will be a favorite among artists/sound engineers for years to come, there is not another board that can compete as far as sound quality, to features, to price ratio. The best part is it's 98% digital so every setting can be saved for multiple artists/senerio setups, it even shows you where the faders and knobs should be. And presonus has noted that the board is completely independent from the recording interface so there is no reason to ever worry about a 'computer problem' killing your FoH sound

PreSonus StudioLive 16.4.2
Connected to PC
Big improvement over the analog table I had before.
Fits perfectly in Cubase.


Simple and efficient.
The preamps are actually Class
So, I sold my preamp rack.


Very good dynamic
No breath, even to gain background.
Reverbs are correct.
It lacks MIDI.


3 years ago.
I do not regret this choice

taofender's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Presonus StudioLive review."

PreSonus StudioLive 16.4.2
Yes is rackable.
The connection is complete.


It takes time to become familiar with the beast.


The EQ is very effective. No breath, and transparent.


I sold this table in 2013 has brought me satisfaction, whether sound or recording. Corrections are of excellent quality, the 32 bands miracles. Only flaw, in my opinion, the drivers is not very stable. But despite all that I will ever purchase. I intend to also make me purchaser 10.0.2 StudioLive, more compact and lighter.
