The scalable digital mixer that grows with you.
Every audio system is built to solve a unique set of problems. The StudioLive 16 digital mixer and the PreSonus ecosystem of AVB networking products allow you to create a system that is truly customized for your needs. Connect NSB-series stage boxes to add remote analog inputs and outputs wherever they’re required and complete your 32-channel, 16-bus StudioLive 16. Add EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers to give your musicians their own customizable 16-channel monitor mix.
The best digital mixer for recording - with or without a computer.
PreSonus Capture recording software is an intuitive, rock-solid multitrack recording application with a fully integrated Virtual Soundcheck mode that runs directly on your StudioLive 16 digital mixer or on your macOS or Windows machine. This gives you the option to record to your computer using the USB audio interface built into your StudioLive 16 digital mixer, or leave your laptop at home and record 34 streams directly to an SD card. Record any combination of channels, FlexMixes, and the Main stereo mix either to USB, to an SD Card, or both for the ultimate redundant live recording rig with the touch of a single button. StudioLive mix scenes can be stored with your recordings to speed up Virtual Soundchecks. Best of all, Capture sessions open natively in Studio One with the entire StudioLive mix scene recreated in the Studio One console, complete with fader levels, Fat Channel settings, mutes, solos, and more to launch your live mix right where you left it.
World-class recording software included.
Seamlessly integrated with the included PreSonus Studio One® Artist DAW, the StudioLive 24 Series III mixer works with virtually all Mac and Windows audio-recording software. Built by creative people for creative music production, Studio One is easy to learn and enables you to compose, record, and produce your masterpiece without getting distracted by the tools. Studio One also enjoys a robust online community of enthusiastic and helpful users you can turn to for advice. Need a new loop or sample for your latest production? Studio One lets you shop, audition, and purchase new content right from your production environment.
Live Mixer. Studio sound. Fat Channel plug-ins bring your mix to life.
The dynamic Fat Channel on the StudioLive 16 digital mixer puts critical EQ and Dynamics functions beneath your fingertips while giving you fast access to every parameter via the full-color touchscreen or from the Fat Channel encoders, depending on how you like to work. The StudioLive 16 digital mixer comes with ten vintage EQ and classic compressor Fat Channel plug-in models that can be used onboard your mixer as well as within Studio One. And when you’re ready for more options, PreSonus offers four Fat Channel plug-in collections with fifteen additional models from which to choose, giving you a host of new signal processing options. While Fat Channel plug-ins are available for every input channel, every output bus on the StudioLive 16 digital mixer is equipped with a fully variable 6-band parametric EQ, compressor, and limiter. Now you can enjoy extensive, studio-style processing whether recording in the studio or running shows on the road.
A digital mixing console customized for you.
The StudioLive 16 digital mixer offers a flexible design that allows you to personalize the layout to better fit the way you work. A customizable User layer lets you create a view for any assortment of channels and buses on the 25 touch-sensitive motorized faders, making it easy to simplify a complex mix. Similarly, the dynamic Fat Channel can be laid out to put the parameters you care about most right at your fingertips. An optional accessory shelf is available to add up to three additional touch screens to your StudioLive 16 digital mixer using UC Surface and your iPad® or favorite Android™ device.
Create buses and groups you need.
Whether you’re mixing in the studio or for a busy festival stage, the buses you need to facilitate the mix you want to create change. PreSonus designed the StudioLive 16 digital mixer to adapt with those changing needs. Each of the 16 FlexMixes on the StudioLive 16 digital mixer can be individually configured to function as an aux bus, a subgroup, or a matrix mix. An additional four static subgroup buses and four designated effects buses provide a total of 24 mix buses plus an independent solo bus and the main mix. We also provided 24 DCAs so you can more easily and flexibly control groups of channels. And with flexible viewing options for the 17 touch-sensitive motorized faders, you can easily manage your 32-channel mix in two efficient layers. The Master fader can even be locked to always control your main mix or to follow the currently selected mix.
Reconfigure your mix without unplugging a single cable.
StudioLive Series III digital mixers incorporate the concept of an analog patch bay and digitize it. This lets you patch any analog input or digital return (AVB, USB, or SD) to any channel you like and customize your mix configuration.
The ultimate USB audio interface and DAW control surface with motorized faders.
With 128 channels (64x64) of USB I/O, the StudioLive 16 is not just the best digital mixer for live sound recording; it’s the best digital mixer for the studio as well. Each channel can independently access its analog input or its dedicated digital return from your computer. And recording is simple and easy. Studio One and the StudioLive 16 digital mixer are the perfect pair to elevate your studio recordings. Remote control the StudioLive 16’s recallable XMAX mic preamps and Fat Channel processing with Studio One Artist for low-latency recording with effects. Press the DAW button your StudioLive 16 digital mixer and use the 17 touch-sensitive motorized faders to control your Studio One mix. Seamless integration and thoughtful bidirectional control with Studio One make the StudioLive 16 the best mixing console for the modern recording studio.
Remote control your digital mixer from anywhere… on any device.
PreSonus StudioLive 16 digital mixers are tightly integrated with an entire suite of state-of-the-art software. Mix wirelessly using UC Surface touch-control software for macOS, Windows, iPad® and Android™. Control your monitor mixes with QMix-UC for iPhone®, iPod touch®, and Android devices. A dedicated 1 Gb Ethernet port is provided to connect to a wireless router and create a control network for devices running UC Surface or QMix-UC. Adjust monitor mixes on stage; move around the room to dial in your mix; or add an accessory shelf and use your mobile device as a second screen for your StudioLive 16 digital mixer.
Three year warranty—for all Series III and III S mixers
When we introduced the StudioLive Series III S mixers, we upgraded all Series III mixer warranty programs to three years as well, including both console and rack mixers. Even if you bought yours two and a half years ago, you're covered.
We take our build quality seriously, and if anything goes wrong with your mixer in your first three years of ownership (assuming you don't throw it in a swamp or anything like that) we'll repair it.
