First-generation StudioLiveTM 24.4.2 and 16.4.2 changed the game, offering amazing performance and ease of use for a great price. So we packed the same audio quality, performance, and seamlessly integrated software (including remote control) into a smaller, even more affordable package: the StudioLive 16.0.2. True, the little fellow doesn't have the Active IntegrationTM muscle of the mighty StudioLive AI-series mixers but it's far more powerful than its size might lead you to believe. Furthermore, it's amazingly lightweight and offers MIDI control-unique in the StudioLive line. It's easy to love this portable powerhouse.

In a "footprint" of less than 2 square feet (0.19 sq. meters), the compact, 16-channel StudioLive 16.0.2 offers 8 mono input channels and 4 stereo channels and provides 12 XMAXTM Class A solid-state mic preamps. (It has a total of 13 Class A mic preamps, including the Talkback input.) But don't let its size fool you; the 16.0.2 is jam-packed with features and processing power, employs the same workflow and easy-to-use mixing-surface design as the bigger StudioLive boards, and sounds every bit as good, with the same high-definition, wide-dynamic-range, digital converters.

The StudioLiveTM 16.0.2 integrates a 16x16 FireWire interface and comes with CaptureTM, Studio One ArtistTM recording and production software, and Virtual StudioLive (VSL) bidirectional control software. VSL, in turn, incorporates Smaart Measurement TechnologyTM, which makes it easy to analyze and fine-tune your main mix.

Moreover, you can control virtually the entire mixer from an iPad® using PreSonus StudioLive Remote, and you can control the aux (monitor) mixes from an iPhone® or iPod touch® using PreSonus QMixTM. Both are free downloads from the Apple App Store.

Because of our powerful, integrated, free software, StudioLive digital mixers can do far more than their competition.

There are five parts to this unique system:

  • Virtual StudioLive with Smaart for laptop control, editor/librarian functions, and sound-system analysis and correction
  • StudioLive Remote for iPad remote control (available free from the Apple App Store)
  • QMixTM for iPhone and iPod touch remote control (available free from the Apple App Store)
  • CaptureTM for two-click multi-track recording and playback
  • Studio One Artist Digital Audio Workstation for enhancing your recordings (and for direct recording from StudioLive 16.0.2 or any compatible interface)
