PreSonus has added to its StudioLive AR series of hybrid mixing consoles with the announcement of the 22-channel StudioLive AR22 USB for live performance and studio use.

Presonus StudioLive AR22 USBStudioLive AR22 USB mixer is equipped with a Mac- and Windows-compatible, 96kHz, 24-bit USB 2.0 audio interface that can capture all input channels and the main mix. The mixer is also equipped with an onboard stereo SD recorder to record the main mix without a computer. The SD recorder can also be used to play up to 32GB of MP3 and WAV files for hours of programme music or backing tracks without a computer.

The console has a flexible array of inputs and outputs, and includes 16 class-A mic preamps and 26 analogue line inputs. In addition to a 60mm fader, each of the 12 mono channels and four stereo channels gives you a low-cut filter, mute, pan and solo with prefader listen. Phantom power can be enabled globally for use with condenser microphones.

All mono channels feature three-band, semi-parametric EQ with a sweepable mid band. There are four channel inserts (on Channels 1-4) to add external processors. Each of the four stereo channels provides a single mic input, plus balanced quarter-inch left and right line inputs and a basic three-band, semi-parametric EQ.

The mixer also features the unique PreSonus Super Channel, which allows audio to be played from four stereo sources simultaneously.

Onboard Bluetooth 4.1 allows a smartphone to be paired with the mixer for wireless access to a music library for break music, backing tracks or ear-training.

StudioLive AR22 USB is bundled with everything needed to record, mix and distribute music – PreSonus Capture live-recording software; Studio One 3 Artist DAW production software; and Studio Magic Plug-in Suite for Mac and Windows, which includes seven popular plug-ins in VST, AU and AAX formats.

The StudioLive AR22 USB mixer is expected to be available early in Q4 2017 at an MAP/street price of US$799.95.
