Presonus Studio Live 16.0.2 Mixer

November 30, 2012


Picked up a Presonus Studio Live 16.0.2 Mixer on Black Friday from ZZounds. This is a great small digital mixer, with the built in ability to be used as a fire wire interface as well. No problems in ProTools 10. I’m very happy with the sound, build, quality and ease of use. Not to mention the functionally as well. XMax Mic Pres, Hi pass,3 band eq, Comp, Limit, Graphic Eq on main out, 2 DSP for verb and delay, 4 aux sends for monitoring. We use with DPA 4099 mic and Sure KSM 141 Mics on nylon string guitar. Shure SM 57&58’s This mixer has what they call a “FAT Channel” on all inputs to control functions listed above. You can also connect an iPad, iPhone or Touch to control mixing/ monitoring via a wifi connection. And it’s easy to”Capture” the whole performance using “Capture” software included. It’s light and small. Yet very powerful.


MOTU Track 16 Breakout Box

The Track 16 Break Out Box is fantastic. If you own the Track 16 this really makes connections much easier and quick. You don’t need to read the small print on the end of your cables. This comes with the Break Out Box and a cable thats easy to hook up. I had no issues and works great.
