Presonus StudioLive 24 Series III 46x26 Digital Mixer W/ 24 IMAX Preamps




Get A Mixing And Recording Powerhouse In Live And Studio Applications With The Presonus StudioLive 24 Series III 46x26 Digital Mixer W/ 24 IMAX Preamps

THE MOST POWERFUL MIXER IN ITS CLASS.

The StudioLive 24 digital console/recorder is by far the most powerful mixer in its class. This third-generation StudioLive mixer is fully recallable, with 25 touch-sensitive, motorized faders and 25 recallable XMAX preamps. Yet despite its extensive features, the StudioLive 24 actually improves upon PreSonus' legendary ease of use while letting you customize its workflow and operations. The StudioLive sound is better than ever, including all-new Fat Channel processing, re-engineered from the ground up, and vintage-style EQs and compressors. Add built-in AVB networking, onboard multitrack Capture recording to SD Card, and a complete suite of software, and you have a mixing and recording powerhouse that's equally formidable in live and studio applications.

INTEGRATED MULTITRACK RECORDING AND VIRTUAL SOUNDCHECK - NO COMPUTER REQUIRED.

PreSonus Capture recording software is an intuitive, rock-solid multitrack recording application with virtual soundcheck. It’s installed directly into the StudioLive 24 so you can leave your laptop at home. Capture’s one-touch recording makes it easy to record to the StudioLive 24’s onboard SD multitrack recorder. When you're finished recording, open your Capture session in Studio One for Mac and Windows (included), and the entire mix scene will transfer to your Studio One session, including fader levels, Fat Channel settings, and, yes, any drum solos that you may have had to endure that night.

CREATE BUSES AND GROUPS TO SUIT YOUR WORKFLOW WITH NEW FLEXMIXES.

Don’t you hate it when you’re setting up for a show and find you have an unused subgroup-but you’re short one monitor mix? That’s not a problem anymore, thanks to 16 FlexMixes that can be individually designated as aux, subgroup, or matrix mixes. You get a total of 10 FlexMixes on analog outputs, 6 on XLR connectors, and 4 on ¼-inch TRS; the other 6 are routed over USB or AVB. These 16 FlexMixes are in addition to the 4 fixed subgroups that also are available via USB or AVB, giving you a total of 20 mix buses, not counting the main mix, solo, and FX buses. We also provided 24 DCAs so you can more easily and flexibly control groups of channels. These are only a few of the many ways you can customize your StudioLive 24 mixer exactly to your needs and workflow.

INTEGRATED SOFTWARE PACKAGE WITH PROFESSIONAL DAW, REMOTE-CONTROL APPS, AND ONE-TOUCH RECORDING.

PreSonus StudioLive 24 mixers are tightly integrated with an entire suite of state-of-the-art software. Mix wirelessly or over a wired network from anywhere using UC Surface touch-control software for Mac, Windows, and iPad. Remote control the mixer’s recallable XMAX preamps and Fat Channel processing with Studio One Artist for low-latency recording with effects. (Reverb-drowned singers: rejoice!) Completely automate virtual soundchecks and record shows with Capture. Save mixer scenes with your live recordings in Capture and edit both in Studio One Artist. StudioLive 24 mixers and software work together to form a cohesive ecosystem that helps you achieve your creative vision.

NETWORK-READY, WITH A CHOICE OF COMPUTER RECORDING METHODS.

Networking isn’t the future of professional audio systems; it’s here now. StudioLive 24 mixers come equipped with an AVB Ethernet connection that enables you to network multiple StudioLive 24 mixers and compatible computers and stream up to 55 channels of audio to and from a Mac or Windows PC. You also get 38x38 recording via USB 2.0, giving you a
