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 Configurable networking and communications option cards ensure your investment won’t be outdated as new technologies emerge.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.

          The Presonus StudioLive 24.4.2AI Digital Audio Mixer is incredible. It is complex enough to ensure learning to use all of the features to take some time. This mixer has awesome power/punch. In the studio or out on our gigs it works excellent. The built in wifi or with a router works great. This is a real hands on review by Rick @ Sam Ash, Phoenix

                  I personally own and use this board on a regular basis..

                  the integration with the software programs capture and vsl is unparalleled. The ipad app is very cleanly designed as well.

                  It's a clean sounding board with great preamps and everything on the face of the unit so there is very little in the way of menus to navigate..

                  the fat channel layout does take a little getting used to but
                  it's worth the effort.

                                24 XLR or 1/4" inputs with effects, compressor, gate, and very accurate eq control. All customized on each channel. Easily save presets and reload them. If you need real studio quality at anytime, seriously, this is the mixer. Plug this straight into your computer via Firewire. You get multi-tracking recording capabilities right there. Each input from the mixer on its own track on the computer makes recording & mix down very easy.
                                On the live sound side, 10 aux outputs, CR out, main outs, and mono output. Talkback mic. WiFi and LAN port for operation on iPad/iPhone Mac or PC using Qmix app.
                                This is PERFECT for churches, bands, production companies, studios, anywhere a digital mixer can be used.
