The 24-channel StudioLive 24.4.2Ai takes all the innovation built into the first generation of SL mixers and raises it to a whole new level, adding more processing, more features, better workflow and Active Integration technology.

Click the "More Info" and "Video" tabs for
complete details on the new StudioLive AI Consoles!

The 24-channel StudioLive 24.4.2Ai retains the same surface-driven functionality that made StudioLive mixers famous, while adding even more processing power, enhanced workflow features, and Active Integration technology. Like the original StudioLive series, they’re incredibly intuitive and easy to learn and use.

Unrivaled sound quality is provided by premium Burr-Brown A/D/A converters and new DSP architecture based on the acclaimed 64-bit Studio One® audio engine. Robust DSP performance, direct Wi-Fi and LAN communication, fast and intuitive workflow, an onboard FireWire s800 interface, and a tightly integrated software suite for Mac®, Windows®, and iOS® create a streamlined working environment for both live and studio use.

Redesigned from the ground up, this state-of-the-art mixer provides analog workflow with extensive dual signal processing on every channel and bus and actively integrated software that solves real-world problems and lets you record and distribute what you mix. All signal processing—Fat Channel processing, reverb and delay effects, graphic EQs, the works — is available on all channels and buses at all times. Configurable networking and communications option cards ensure your investment won’t be outdated as new technologies emerge.

Active Integration is the difference.
PreSonus Active Integration (AI) is a complete, networked, tightly integrated hardware/software environment in which every aspect of the system interacts to simplify operation, yet provide highly-advanced solutions in ways that were never possible before.

Thanks to Active Integration, the StudioLive 24.4.2AI delivers an extended feature set, including twice as many internal effects buses as first-generation StudioLive mixers (two reverbs and two delays on dedicated buses), the ability to create two complete sets of parametric EQ and dynamics-processor settings for each channel and bus and make quick A/B comparisons at the touch of a button, and more.

Seamlessly integrated software
The StudioLive AI Software Library has been redesigned for the Active Integration platform and includes the latest versions of PreSonus’ tightly integrated software bundle for Mac and Windows: Capture™ 2.1 multitrack-recording software, Studio One Artist® 2.6 DAW, and Virtual StudioLive-AI editor/librarian/control software with Smaart Measurement Technology™.

In addition, StudioLive Remote-AI control software for iPad® and QMix™-AI aux-mix control for iPhone®/iPod® touch will be available free from the Apple App Store.

          This really is a recording studio in a box. It would be great as the centerpiece to a mid-level studio, but its equally at home is a front of house mixer that just happens to record live albums flawlessly.

            Wow, this mixer is truly impressive. Great sounding preamps, plenty of inputs, phantom power, compressor, and lots of other useful features. I love the amount of control you have over the monitor mix!

              This is our go to mixer, at the moment, for our open mic live sound and live recordings. Its stood the test of 3 years of events and keeps on ticking. Works wonders in conjunction with Studio Live software. This product is a wise investment.

                My mixer before this was fine but this has more power and punch. In the studio or out on our gigs works excellent. The built in wifi or with a router works great.
                Sonically the console is excellent. The preamps are clean and uncolored. There is plenty of headroom throughout the console - you really have to work hard to get distortion in the signal.

                    One of the best mixing boards available today. I found it easy to use and very responsive. Everything you would ever need in a digital board. Presonus has done a great job with this. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

                      24 channels of Ai digital power. With Active integration (AI) that is a complete, networked, tightly integrated hardware/software environment in which every aspect of the system interacts to simplify operation. This is a board that I have trusted, used, and sold with many events. From outdoor festivals to small churches this is a long lasting machine. The iPad control is fantastic, and to record straight to a laptop is now easier than every. Very easy to use, save presets, full mix control, MASSIVE mix views and easy to monitor mixes. Great board for the price.

                        Right out of the box, this very user friendly mixer is packed full of features that make this an essential mixer. The ease of the room/stage storage allows any engineer to pick up and travel without wasting any time re doing the setings. Also the fact you can use the mixer on the stage with your iphone or ipod make it a vaulable piece. This is a real hands on product review from Arturo@ Sam Ash White Plains
