PreSonus StudioLive 16.0.2 USB Delivers Big Performance in a Compact Frame

Following up on the success of its popular, award-winning StudioLive® 16.0.2 digital recording and performance mixer, PreSonus® announced the new StudioLive 16.0.2 USB. Compact, portable, and rack-mountable (optional), the 16-channel StudioLive 16.0.2 USB is designed for both studio recording and live sound. It’s ideal for small bands, personal studios, intimate clubs, small churches, community organizations, rehearsal spaces, and other applications where you need a compact, high-quality live-mixing and recording system at a bargain price and don’t need advanced features such as mixer subgroups and channel inserts.

The StudioLive 16.0.2 USB offers the same superb audio quality as the original StudioLive 16.0.2, including 32-bit floating-point processing; XMAX Class A mic preamps; and 24-bit, 48 kHz Burr-Brown digital converters with 118 dB dynamic range. Its feature set and familiar, analog-like mixing surface are virtually the same. However, the new mixer replaces the older unit’s FireWire 400 recording and control interface with an 18×16 USB 2.0 interface that works with any Mac or Windows audio software that supports Core Audio or ASIO.
You get four aux sends—enough to handle monitors for a small band or event—and adjacent channels and aux buses can be stereo linked. A stereo, 31-band graphic EQ serves the main bus.
The 16.0.2 USB’s Fat Channel processing section provides a full complement of processing that would normally require racks of outboard gear, including a, compressor, limiter, downward expander, and 3-band semi-parametric EQ available on every channel, every aux bus, the two onboard effects outputs, and the main bus. The Fat Channel also offers extensive LED metering; mixer save/recall; and channel-strip save/recall/copy/paste. The new mixer also sports a pair of programmable, stereo, 32-bit floating-point effects processors, loaded with reverb and delay presets and assigned to dedicated FX buses.
Standard 5-in DIN MIDI In and Out provide MIDI control over key mixer parameters. With the tap of a toe, recall over-all volume settings, effects settings and assignments, and global mixer Scenes, including individual channel levels and all 130 Fat Channel signal processors.
The new mixer comes with the latest PreSonus software suite, including Capture™ recording software, Studio One® Artist DAW, and Studio Magic Plug-in Suite for Mac® and Windows®; UC Surface control software for Mac, Windows, Android™, and iPad®; and QMix®-UC monitor (aux) control software for iOS® and Android devices.
Outstanding ease of use, superb sound quality, roadworthiness, extensive onboard processing and metering, a tightly integrated USB 2.0 interface, state-of-the-art recording and control software—the StudioLive 16.0.2 USB delivers everything you need for small-scale studio and live applications. Expected to ship in late summer with a U.S. street price of $1,099.95, this newest addition to the StudioLive family brings high-quality mixing and recording capabilities to musicians who, until now, could never have afforded them.
