ericthegreat's review"all in one mixer"

PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2

I purchased the Presonus Studio Live 24.4 to eliminate outboard gear and have all the onboard compression, eq’s etc. Oh yea 24 ch recording! Easy to use and built well. Plan on buying a $450 L and M case to protect this puppy. I have already tweaked and recorded with this thing in less than 4 hours. I just need a crossover and feedback destroyers now! Effects on board sound good too although limited to reverbs and delays.


UTILIZATION

The Presonus Studio Live 24.4 is a great sounding console, clean but not sterile sounding. The processing power is great. Compression, gating and eq on all the channels including the buses. Very easy to learn and get around on. Wish it had a way for routing the reverb to the monitors.

SOUNDS

Mutes on the aux masters would be nice to cut reverbs between songs. Also the current firmware (v1.0 build 166) has at least one bug that I have found. Build 165 had a couple. Tech support is very slow to respond, that disappointed me I like good customer service.

OVERALL OPINION

The size, it is deeper than our old mixer but about half the width. Once it is setup, it is as simple to operate as an analog mixer. It looks intimidating, all the buttons, but it is very straight forward to use. Add bonus: it is quite pretty when it is powered on. I would highly recommend this mixer to any one looking for a high quality mixer. But the price may steer you away, there are a lot of other mixers out that can do what this one can do for a much cheaper price. You will have to test the market to see what all there is out there but you will find something similar if you arent willing to fish out the money for the Presonus Studio Live 24.4.

limousinaudiovisuel's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" INFO PRESONUS on 16 February 4-April 24 Software 2 Capture"

PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2
Connections jacks, rack brackets, making a little plastic damage and gates a little limited.
Very explicit and clear doc made by and for the user! VERY SIGNIFICANT

UTILIZATION

For those who use a prsonus 16 or 24 April 2 April 2.
Besides the incredible ergonomics of the console preamps of good quality, and easy grip, even for the most reluctant from the analogue world (like me for example) here's a little info on when to use a computer to track the acquisitions tracks. -Some of you may have encountered difficulties with the stability acquisition computer. With the software "CAPTURE" PRESONUS when rec puts on several tracks is not uncommon for the REC PLAY becomes what is unpleasant.
SOLUTION: CONSOLIDATE YOUR ELECTRIC CURRENT, adding as little inverter via a simple base, the problem is finally resolved.
For example, I was on version 2 before the April 16 April 24 2 and it happens to me often to record 16 tracks + LR 44100Hz for 10 hours without encountering the problem. Invest in an inverter 70 € for your recordings and make your back.

SOUNDS

No noise, preamps excellent value for money

OVERALL OPINION

2 From 16 April 2011 to 24 April 2 since 2014 excellent value for money

blackle's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A good concept, unfortunately marred by chronic instability!"

PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2
Digital offering 24 physical inputs switchable mic / line, 4 subgroup outputs and 3-way master, 10 auxiliary outputs switchable pre / post fader, etc. .. I will not belabour just been said here and there ..
The console does not seem to have suffered much inevitable compromises quality. From all evidence it was not designed for "Grand Touring". But there is not his vocation. Some minds sorrow regret the absence of motorized faders, but believe me at this price it's a choice of reasons.

UTILIZATION

Certainly the highlight of this console. Moreover it is reminiscent of old consoles ergonomics Spirit 328 and 324, which were themselves inspired by the extraordinary digitally controlled analog console from Soundcraft Broadway ..
Operation is simple, access is fast and intuitive. Not much to add, it is particularly well thought see refined.

SOUNDS

The preamps are in a good average, but not transcendent qualities enough for a lot of situations. We will have to be careful in the choice of microphones! It's not always easy because you have to consider the sources and the ability of this console preamps to respect the sensors and sources .. a Neumann KMS 105 will not run optimally. The brightness will be highlighted too ..
The Eq is also a good average, they are relatively accurate. The compressors are embedded enough and good levels. However the Gates are a bit ho hum. As with virtually all digital consoles below a certain range ..
Few, if not out of breath, if not a tiny little wheezing at high frequency. Having said this must be tempered by this small criticism is that this finding is only valid when the Live Studio is connected to a distribution system particularly pointed.

OVERALL OPINION

As stated by one of my predecessors, it has everything a great, for sure .. However we can not ignore the instability of the console when you want to use up to its potential! Outright loss of signal in full ROH show is not the best taste ..
Brief for small number of solutions available to you. Either you wait for this console Presonus evolves and corrects (finally) working the bugs. Either you opt for this console still in full knowledge of the facts, ie, abandoning the idea of ​​using too much pressure (PC). At the time I write this the product does not seem to be completely ready yet. Therefore mistrust .. In short, if you are in a position to host companies / groups in a professional programming I'm afraid that we should break the bank for a most successful console. Friend (s) technical directors so does the technical credibility of your room!

PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2
Hello,

All technical information can be found on the website of the manufacturer and the mode of employment in French. What is for me a major + +

UTILIZATION

Configuration if we have no way of jobs and not have a computer with a Firewire port is galley galley. The mode of employment is quite clear.

The usual functions ... cf: read the instructions for jobs and have the program really is a universal control +

SOUNDS

The EQ does its job. No monstrous blast so far ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use the console recently PreSonus StudioLive 24/4/2, and I must say that initially it seems rather complicated, but in the end thanks to the software that provides with Presonus (universal control), it is simple phenomenal if you use a computer to control almost all functions. I use it live and at the same time recording. I think the Presonus engineers have given themselves to build on that shot. The only regret I lack of entries.

To the question about if I already worked on other console, so on a fair amount of both digital and analogue consoles.

The special feature I like most is being able to register. The one I like least is that I lack of inputs and it is better to have a computer next to you when used.

The value for money is very correct.

From a global point of view, it is a console that has everything a large, see more ... because it is an excellent interface for audio recording.


Greetings ...

How long have you use it?
Buy fresh, and some uses live from some Belgian sizes.

UTILIZATION

What is so special that you love the most,
She is very intuitive for digital. We're working on it almost as an analogue of sound technicians and I met with the same view.

SOUNDS

24 real slices available. a set of gate, compressor, eq, etc. on each slice, but also group, etc. facade.
A touch by function, and the menus are used only for backup, and effects.
The preamp has gain, it sounds better than yamaha for my taste.

OVERALL OPINION

the least?
Tiny black or gray!
the graphic eq is less intuitive, and it seems essential to add a facade of art, or for returns.
subgroups (4) are mono, which is low if you want to do a group baterie, there are two to bring back such a delay.
shame that it's not stereo groups.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
the yamaha, but nothing to do.

How would you rate the quality / price?
Superb, especially as a purchase in the United States down to even the score


With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Without any hesitation.

wse85's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2
I speak good of 24! Apparently the software is somewhat different on the 16
The feature is already given!
I was unpacking a lil bit disappointed with the aspect of "toy" of the console. Manufactur ... all of knob Pitit lummières across short, I am not a fan of her look (but it will be a little crazy). Espéront it lasts over time.
It will replace the 01V in my park. That they have hours of touring and rental without flinching.
The flycase, does "not block the console in, it arises and is maintained by the cover ...? Should I find a good way to the caller in, it does not rack.

UTILIZATION

Handling very simple. It comes out without the manual. Jel'ai sent 2 times in loc, engineers fu surprised how easy to handle.

I really appreciate the "all hands on" with the flat channel. 5Plus pleasant than Yam) Why do so many "ON" button on the EQ, to be careful not to forget ...:(
The 31 bands are a little confusing (yes, 24 knobs to 31 bands) which will seek its frequency. For handy against the EQ 6, to assign on to.
The access gate, compress, EQ, aux, effects are very intuitive.

SOUNDS

THE good preamp for the money, not too much wind. Be careful not to get into it too will tend to crack, the slightest deviation in the "red" does not forgive.
It will become familiar with the use of EQ, but they do their job, although you still "get inside"
The effects, mentioned above, are pretty bad (worse than the first 01V) it is satisfied for small live (if not take out your TC (or other) benefits. It is possible, against the level, it helps a little .
I have a little trouble with the recall of scenes (non-motorized fader) to be so light indicators to reposition their installments.
First recording with the soft capture and a laptop. Bugs, every 20 seconds, impossible.
By setting the "safe mode" it manages.
Then, macbook, logic and there it seems stable for several hours of recording. (I would do anyway not my home studio console) but to offer the live at low cost, great.
I had a bug over signal on aux1 live in the open, he sent a return) after searching the entire audio chain, I turned off and on the console, yes yes right in the concert and everything is back in order not top .. yuck! (It also happens to large consoles)

OVERALL OPINION

I've had three weeks, I can not find a competitor for the price. with the means of recording, there's no photo. Presonus, was not in the consoles, but experience in the preamp, among others. What is felt, it sounds pretty good. I will not compare it to other midas, digi, M7CL etc, I tried, it is not at all on the same products ...
For a small provider group, an association etc., can not afford to invest thousands of dollars in gear, I think this little console in its place, I could not find better value. Complete sound coorect, its reliability remains to be seen, by appointment in qq years.
Musically!
