The StudioLive 16.4.2AI introduces a new paradigm for digital mixing and recording solutions. Retaining the same surface-driven functionality that made StudioLive mixers famous, while adding even more processing power, enhanced workflow features, and Active Integration technology, it provides a networked, tightly integrated hardware/software ecosystem in which every touch point in the system communicates to enhance each mixing task. The StudioLive 16.4.2AI offers wireless or wired connectivity to any standard router and networks with Macs, PCs, and iOS devices running the StudioLive AI Software Library, which features UC Surface multi-touch control software with Smaart audio analysis and System Check Wizards, specialized iOS apps, Capture 2.1, and Studio One 3 Artist DAW (free downloads after registration). The mixer features an extensive analog patch bay for flexible connectivity; a 32x18 FireWire s800 interface for easy recording and virtual soundchecks; optional Thunderbolt, Dante, or AVB for flexible networking; extensive dual signal processing on every channel and bus, with A/B comparison (one Fat Channel on every input and bus simply wasn’t enough); and 16 dedicated mix buses for easy configuration. Best of all, all controls are one-to-one, so there are no layers to get lost in, and your main mix is always at your fingertips.
