StudioLive® AI Active Integration mixing consoles combine a familiar, analog-like mixing surface with the power of digital mixing. Easier to use, better sounding, and flawlessly integrated with state-of-the-art software, they deliver the most creative environment possible for both live performance and studio music production. Loaded with no-compromises signal processing on every channel, easy store and recall of every setting, high-end converters and preamps, and an integrated multitrack recording interface, StudioLive AI mixers are expandable and boast advanced networking capabilities unmatched in their price class. Yet they operate so much like an analog mixer that you'll immediately feel at home.

When you're mixing a live event or have an artist in the studio, you need to be able to work quickly. The StudioLive AI's familiar, easy-to-use interface keeps all critical controls visible and accessible -not buried in multiple menus or layers. Our design philosophy is simple: One fader for every channel, one output for every bus. This is the power of a surface-driven workflow. But don't let the analog feel fool you: StudioLive AI mixers offer all of the features you expect in professional-class digital mixers and more.

StudioLive AI mixers provide more DSP power than any other mixer in their class. There are no limitations, no shared resources, no figuring out what processing is available where. You have all of the processing available at all times, with no compromises or caveats. The unique Fat Channel provides a compressor, limiter, expander/gate, and parametric EQ on every channel and bus; a highpass filter on each channel; a library of professionally crafted, useful presets; and the ability to save, selectively recall, and A/B-compare processor settings. You also get four effects processors, each with their own dedicated mix bus; a 31-band graphic EQ on every aux mix plus the mains; and 500 ms of delay available to each of the four subgroups.

Connect a StudioLive AI mixer and you'll instantly hear details and an open high end you'd expect to find only in an expensive studio console. StudioLive AI mixers operate at up to 96 kHz for high-definition mixing and recording. They use the same high-quality 64-bit summing engine found in our Studio One® DAW, which consistently receives rave reviews for sound quality. High-quality Burr-Brown converters on every input and output provide a best-in-class 118 dB of dynamic range so you'll catch every high and low with great accuracy and no audible distortion. And our XMAX microphone preamps deliver incredibly high headroom, deep lows, smooth highs, and a rich overall sound.

The StudioLive 24.4.2AI's built-in 40x26 multitrack recording interface is tightly integrated with the rest of the mixer-not an afterthought we tacked on. All 24 channels, the tape inputs, and your choice of buses continuously stream to your FireWire- or DanteTM-connected Mac® or Windows® PC. Each channel can independently access its analog input or its dedicated digital return from your computer. And with StudioLive mixers, recording is simple and easy: Just launch the included, preconfigured CaptureTM software for one-click recording of all channel inputs and your main mix. Or record with the included Studio One® Artist DAW-or any recording software that supports ASIO or Core Audio. Now you can record in the studio or at the gig with equal ease-only with StudioLive.
