Presonus Studio Live 32.4.2AI
Since the release of the first Studio Live consoles, the range has gained a reputation for solid, ease of use, flexible routing, great sounding and great value for money too.
Presonus are about to build on that history by releasing the Presonus Studio Live 32.4.2 AI which features the very latest technology behind Presonus’s Active Intergration.
Features to expect from the new 32 Channel Studio Live will include 32 Channels of HQ Class A XMAX mic preamps, 14 Aux Mixes, 4 Sub Groups with variable output delay, FAT Channel dynamics processing and parametric EQ, a 48×34 S800 FireWire audio interface, 64 times the processing power of the previous Studio Live consoles and much more.
Another highlight and first for the Studio Live unique to the 32.4.2AI is Ethernet integration which allows you to connect to an existing router-based network with an Ethernet cable or completely wirelessly.
Also included is USB2.0 connection to host the included USB Wi-Fi LAN Adapter for situations where a ad hoc, less powerful W-Fi network is sufficient.
Using either Wireless connection, the mixer can be controlled from an i-Phone or i-Pod touch.
