PreSonus StudioLive 32.4.2AI Digital Mixer Details

With its incredible signal-processing power on every channel, easy store and recall of every setting, and the ability to record it all with just two mouse clicks, a StudioLive mixer will spoil you fast! Easier to use, better sounding, and flawlessly integrated with state-of-the-art software, it delivers the most creative environment possible for both live performance and studio music production. The 32-channel, 14-aux PreSonus StudioLive 32.4.2AI Digital Mixer starts with all the strengths of previous StudioLive models""and then pushes the technology to the next level. StudioLive 32.4.2AI is built with next-generation Active Integration technology that adds unprecedented power for mixing consoles anywhere near this price class. So while the 32.4.2AI looks and feels much like its non-AI counterparts it has with far more computing power, which makes possible some very useful new features.

For starters, you get twice as many internal effects buses and 31-band graphic EQs. We"?ve added six mute groups and user-assignable Quick Scene buttons. You"?ll love the ability to create two complete sets of EQ and dynamics settings for a channel or bus and then make quick A/B comparisons at the touch of a button.

A built-in 48x34 FireWire S800 interface is standard equipment but Thunderbolt and Ethernet (Dante) cards are expected by the end of 2013. A dedicated USB 2 port and included Wi-Fi LAN adapter lets you control the mixer wirelessly""even without a Mac or Windows PC.

Of course, you get the latest version of our tightly integrated software bundle, including updated Capture 2.0 recording software, Studio One Artist DAW, and Virtual StudioLive-AI editor/librarian/control software with Smaart Measurement Technology. StudioLive Remote-AI for iPad and QMix-AI for iPhone/iPod touch will both be available free from the Apple App Store. The deeper you dig into the StudioLive 32.4.2AI"?s capabilities, the more you will realize that the future of digital mixing starts here and now!

Products that sense each other, interact and work together via wireless and wired communication, feature 32-bit floating-point DSP and seamlessly integrated software, and run on CPUs far more powerful than competitors"? current audio products""PreSonus has realized this dream with its new Active Integration technology.

Thanks to Active Integration, the StudioLive 32.4.2AI mixer has 64 times the processing power and an incredible 10,000 times more RAM than the StudioLive 24.4.2. This makes possible the aforementioned extended feature set.
