PreSonus has announced the StudioLive 16.0.2 USB, a compact, portable and rack-mountable (optional), the 16-channel mixer designed for both studio recording and live sound.

PreSonus StudioLive 16.0.2 USB

Intended for small bands, personal studios, intimate clubs, small churches, community organisations and rehearsal spaces, the StudioLive 16.0.2 USB offers the same features as the original StudioLive 16.0.2, including 32-bit floating-point processing; Xmax class-A mic preamps and 24-bit, 48kHz Burr-Brown digital converters with 118 dB dynamic range. While its feature set and familiar, analogue-like mixing surface are virtually the same, the new mixer replaces the older unit’s FireWire 400 recording and control interface with an 18x16 USB 2.0 interface that works with any Mac or Windows audio software that supports Core Audio or ASIO.

It offers four aux sends, and adjacent channels and aux buses can be stereo linked. Stereo, 31-band graphic EQ serves the main bus.

Fat Channel processing section provides a full complement of processing that would normally require racks of outboard gear, including a, compressor, limiter, downward expander and three-band semi-parametric EQ available on every channel, every aux bus the two onboard effects outputs, and the main bus. The Fat Channel also offers extensive LED metering; mixer save/recall; and channel-strip save/recall/copy/paste. The mixer also sports a pair of programmable, stereo, 32-bit floating-point effects processors, loaded with reverb and delay presets and assigned to dedicated FX buses.

Standard Midi In and Out connection provides control over key mixer parameters. With the tap of a toe, recall overall volume settings, effects settings and assignments, and global mixer Scenes, including individual channel levels and all 130 Fat Channel signal processors. 

The new mixer comes with the latest PreSonus software suite, including Capture recording software, Studio One Artist DAW, and Studio Magic Plug-in Suite for Mac and Windows; UC Surface control software for Mac, Windows, Android, and iPad; and QMix-UC monitor (aux) control software for iOS and Android devices.

Expected to ship in late Q3 2017 with a street price of US$1,099.95.
