STUDIOLIVE 1602

This product is no longer available.
n a footprint of less than 2 square feet (0.19 m2), the compact, 16-channel StudioLive 16.0.2 offers 8 mono input channels and 4 stereo channels and provides 12 XMAX Class A solid-state mic preamps.

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 16.0.2 integrates a 16x16 FireWire interface and comes with Capture, Studio One Artist recording and production software, and Virtual StudioLive, bidirectional control software, and it works great with our free SL Remote iPad and iPhone control apps.

The 16.0.2's Fat Channel is well stocked with compressors, limiters, gates, phase reverse, high-pass filters, and 3-band semi-parametric EQ. Two stereo, 32-bit floating-point effects processors deliver delay and reverb effects.

Moreover, a glance at the rear panel reveals that "Junior" offers something the two bigger boards don't: MIDI In and Out. You can recall Scenes from a DAW using MIDI Program Changes, control the main output volume and effects level, and even mute effects between songsall thanks to the magic of MIDI control.

Features
16 channel inputs with 60 mm faders
4 auxiliary buses (pre/post-fader send) and 2 internal FX buses
On all channels and buses: 3-band semi-parametric EQ, compressor, limiter, downward expander
Stereo, 31-band graphic EQ on the main bus
16-in/16-out FireWire recording interface (24-bit/44.1 kHz and 48 kHz)
MIDI I/O: control main and effects output levels, recall effects presets and Scenes, and more.
Bundle for Mac and Windows includes PreSonus Studio One Artist DAW, Capture live-recording software, Virtual StudioLive mixer-control software.
Free StudioLive Remote iPad wireless-control software available at the Apple App Store.

Had this thing for 2 months. I use it on my drums and for my studio monitors. It is amazing for live use with the built in effects and also a great recording interface. The preamps are clean, and the StudioOne software is great. I really am starting to like this DAW over all in this price point I couldn't be happier. The X18 was around the same price, but the faders have come in to use more than I was expecting.

Channel 15/16 quit after appx a weeks use on the board using the channel to pipe in a stereo source for casual music. Returned the board and LM replaced it. I had the replacement board 2 weeks and the same thing happened again. When I returned to the store I was accused by a manager of causing the failures. Having quality issues with products you sell is one thing, being rude to the people that keep you in business is totally another. Winnipeg North is a store to avoid

I've had this for 2 years. Everything still works, but I really baby my stuff. Bought the form fitted waterproof case too. I paid about $400 more and would gladly buy it again especially at the new price. I was the most amazed at how intuitive this mixer was. I highly recommend it. The only shortcomings I can think of is that it doesn't have inserts and when you save a scene, it seems to mess up the settings for the Aux sends. That had us scratching our heads on more than one occasion. The ipad control is also really slick; each band member controls his own mix. Really nice.

I just picked this up on the weekend and I am already in love with this mixing board. The mic pres are top notch and the fat channel and effects really make dialling in a great sound a breeze. I wanted a board that I could use live and as an interface in my home studio. That's where this board really shines. It's perfect for both. You can print the fat channel effects when you record (or not) and monitor right from the board using on board reverb and delay so there is zero latency when you record. I
