PreSonus has introduced the StudioLive 32.4.2AI 32-channel performance and recording digital mixer.

StudioLive 32.4.2AI The new desk features 32 class-A XMax mic preamps with individually switched phantom power (plus an XMax preamp for the Talkback input with always-on phantom), 32 line inputs, 14 aux mixes, four subgroups with variable output delay, Fat Channel dynamics processing and parametric EQ and a 48x34 FireWire S800 audio interface.

StudioLive 32.4.2AI takes its Fat Channel features from the StudioLive 24.4.2, including routing, panning, a high-pass filter and polarity reverse on every channel, along with a gate, compressor, limiter and four-band fully parametric EQ on every channel. There is aux, subgroup and effects bussing, and the desk also provides two sets of EQ and dynamics settings for a channel to be created and then compared A/B with the Alt EQ/Dyn button.

There are six mute groups with All On/All Off switches and six user-assignable Quick Scene Recall buttons and four internal effects buses – two with reverb and two with delay effects.

Unlike previous models, the StudioLive 32.4.2AI sports an Ethernet port that allowing connection to a router-based network with an Ethernet cable or wirelessly. A USB 2.0 port hosts the included USB Wi-Fi LAN adapter for situations where a Wi-Fi network is sufficient. Using either wireless connection, the mixer can be directly controlled from a laptop or iPad, and the aux mixes can be controlled from an iPhone or iPod touch.

A line of option cards will be available for the StudioLive 32.4.2AI in late 2013. Every option card comes with dual FireWire S800 and SPDIF stereo output, as well as Ethernet (for control only). Two cards that add Dante for audio networking and Thunderbolt for faster digital transfers are in development.

StudioLive 32.4.2AI is integrated with updated versions of the software suite introduced for the earlier StudioLive models: VSL-AI control/editor/librarian for Mac and Windows, SL Remote-AI wireless remote control for iPad, QMix-AI wireless aux-mix control for iPhone/iPod touch, Capture 2.0 preconfigured audio-recording software, and the Studio One Artist DAW.

The StudioLive 32.4.2AI digital mixer is expected to be available in April 2013, with an anticipated MSRP of US$4,999 and MAP of US$3,999.
