The PreSonus’ StudioLive ARc series combines a multichannel 96kHz, 24-bit USB-C compatible, USB 2.0 audio interface with an analogue mixer front-end, to create a hybrid design that simplifies recording and mixing using a single intuitive console. Featuring newly designed high-headroom analogue circuits, along with the company’s high-gain XMax class-A mic preamps, StudioLive ARc audio interface mixers address the needs of modern musicians and content creators.

Presonus StudioLive AR16cThree models are available – the StudioLive AR8c offers four mic preamps and six balanced line inputs for 8x4 recording/playback, while the StudioLive AR12c sports eight mic preamps and 12 balanced line inputs for 14x4 recording/playback, and the StudioLive AR16c delivers 12 mic preamps and 16 balanced line inputs for 18x4 recording/playback.

All models support recording every channel plus the main mix over USB and feature a musical, three-band analogue EQ on every channel; mic/line boost for low-level vintage synths, broadcast microphones, and consumer electronics; and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. The onboard stereo SD recorder is great for recording a rehearsal or a mobile podcast interview or quickly capturing songwriting ideas. An all-new digital effects processor with 16 presets supplies rich reverbs, lush delays, and fat chorusing and includes a dedicated send and return, as well as a bypass footswitch jack (footswitch optional).

All StudioLive ARc series mixers have PreSonus’ unique Super Channel, which can handle four stereo analogue and digital sources at once. The Super Channel combines wireless stereo Bluetooth 5.0 input, stereo input from the onboard SD recorder or from a USB-connected Mac or Windows PC, and RCA and 3.5mm stereo inputs for use with turntables and high-tech devices.

The new mixers come with a powerful recording software suite for Mac and Windows. Make multitrack recordings for your podcast or band with one click using Capture live recording software. Create complete studio productions and design effects and bumpers with Studio One Artist recording and production software, augmented with the Studio Magic Plug-in Suite, a collection of useful plug-ins in VST, AU and AAX formats by the top names in virtual instruments and effects.

All three models are available now at street prices of: StudioLive AR8c US$499.95, StudioLive AR12c US$599.95 and StudioLive AR16c US$699.95.
