PreSonus Introduces StudioLive 32.4.2AI Digital Mixing System with Active Integration

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, January 2013… Following up on the stunning success of its StudioLive™-series digital mixers, PreSonus™ today introduced the StudioLive 32.4.2AI 32-channel performance and recording digital mixer. This new mixer features next-generation Active Integration technology, including a dual-core computing engine that packs over 64 times the processing power and an incredible 10,000 times more RAM than the previous top-of-the-line StudioLive 24.4.2. Its sophisticated, integral communications also makes possible wireless control of the mixer without requiring an external computer.

Featuring 32 Class A XMAX™ mic preamps with individually switched phantom power (plus an XMAX preamp for the Talkback input with always-on phantom), 32 line inputs, 14 aux mixes, 4 subgroups with variable output delay, Fat Channel dynamics processing and parametric EQ, a 48x34 FireWire S800 audio interface, and much more, StudioLive 32.4.2AI takes affordable digital mixing to a new level of sophistication.

Yet the new model retains the ease of use and fast workflow that helped make StudioLive mixers a worldwide success. All of the core mixing features are under your fingers, with no awkward bank switching.

StudioLive 32.4.2AI incorporates the same Fat Channel features as the awardwinning StudioLive 24.4.2, including routing, panning, a high-pass filter and polarity reverse on every channel, and a full-feature gate, full-featured compressor, limiter, and 4-band fully parametric EQ on every channel, aux, subgroup, and effects bus. Taking advantage of the Active Integration engineʼs massive processing power, the new mixer allows users to create two complete sets of EQ and dynamics settings for a channel and then make quick A/B comparisons with the Alt EQ/Dyn button.

Also new in this model are six mute groups with All On/All Off switches and six user-assignable Quick Scene Recall buttons that let you load specified, saved mixer scenes—sort of a speed dial for mixer scenes. The StudioLive 32.4.2AI
also sports four internal effects buses: two with reverb and two with delay effects.

Unlike previous models, the StudioLive 32.4.2AI sports an Ethernet port and offers a USB 2.0 port to host the included USB Wi-Fi LAN adapter wireless networking. This allows you to connect to an existing router-based wireless network with an Ethernet cable or completely wirelessly. Using either of these wireless connections, the mixer can be controlled from a laptop, iPad®, iPhone®, or iPod touch®; a FireWire connection to a computer is not required.

Will be available end of July 2013
