The 32-channel StudioLive 32.4.2Ai 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 32-channel StudioLive 32.4.2Ai 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, easy-to-learn and easy-to-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 Configurable networking and communications option cards ensure your investment won’t be outdated as new technologies emerge.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 32.4.2AI 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.

      Comments about Presonus StudioLive 32.4.2AI Digital Audio Mixer:

      I have used this board live and in the studio. Being able to multi -track record a live performance and then dump it in to studio one is simply amazing. The ease of use blows away the competition. From easily being able to find the 48V button (hidden in scrolling pages on other boards) to easily switching between effects and being able to dial them in on each individual channel. Great overall board and should be in the arsenal of all churches, clubs and touring acts.

Visually this Presonus stays true to the name. Sleek, modern design with sliders and controls that feel supremely durable. Upgrade today and thank yourself tomorrow.

        Comments about Presonus StudioLive 32.4.2AI Digital Audio Mixer:

        A board that can eb used to mix right our of the box. Navgation was a little rough at first, but that's pretty much to eb expected with any new digital board. Obviously as time goes on it's getting easier. Now if only this thing had motorized faders! PreSonus really did a great job designing and building this mixer. I recommended it before getting my hands on it, now I highly recommend this system to anyone looking to get into a digital unit. Using more and more of this unit's functions everytime!

          The features on this thing are incredible. The pre-amps and features of the board give totally professional results. The AUX/FX sends good once you understand how to set up the signal path for your application - you gotta use the menu! Worth spending the money with all the features that come with this board.

            This is a perfect start to a professional studio, or a great board for a large concert video that intends on recording live albums! It's got tons of inputs tons of built in features, and can easily be either a mixer or an interface or both. It really blurs the lines.

                    I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS BOARD! I first used the 16/4 two years ago and I have used is while running sound in over 200 shows since. Presonus made the digital console that other manufacturers have been wanting to do for years. It IS easy to use. It IS crystal clear in its quality of sound and it IS becoming the standard mixer on the market. With the demand of more channels, I am SO happy to now have the 32 channel version on the market. This is becoming the standard board for churches, venues and sporting events. The tutorials on Youtube are the best and whenever I turn the power on, I feel the exciting surge run through me! Man, I love this mixer!!!!

                      I've been using StudioLive for about 2 years now. I started with the first generation (16.4.2.) but soon outgrew it with the band I am in. When I sold that board and bought the 32AI, I was amazed by all the extra features: The A/B Fat Channel, Mute Groups, amount of effects, Quick Scenes and of course, the huge improvement in tone quality. Did I say major improvement in tone? That is what really impressed me!

                      On top of that, add the included free software,Universal Control-AI,Capture2 and iOS apps, QMix-AL and SL-Remote-AL, and it's a no brainer!

                      Since having the 32AI I've used it as a FOH mixer and Monitor mixer (in ears and wedges) in various types of gigs and it has performed flawlessly on every occasion! It also makes a great audio interface for my studio! The 32AI is really a great and versatile board. Check one out!
