16 x 4 x 2 Performance and Recording Digital Mixer
You’ll never go back to an old-school analog mixer once you’ve used StudioLive™. With its incredible signal-processing power on every channel, easy store and recall of every setting, and the ability to record it all with just two mouse clicks, you’ll get spoiled fast! Easier to use, better sounding, and flawlessly integrated with state-of-the-art software, it delivers the most creative environment possible for both live performance and studio music production.
But StudioLive is not simply a mixer, it’s a rapidly growing family of state-of-the-art, integrated hardware-software mixing and recording systems that deliver the features you need for live sound, live recording, and studio recording.
The StudioLive 16 4 2 is a great choice for those who want to mix smaller shows and worship services, and it’s a great choice for small club systems, portable churches, small bands, corporate applications, educational institutions, and anywhere you want a rack-mount mixer. It’s the perfect hardware core for a project studio. Or daisy-chain two StudioLive 16.4.2s to form a 32x4x2 performance and recording console for mid-sized shows and events.
Here, in one device, are high-headroom XMAX™ microphone preamplifiers, a built-in FireWire recording and playback interface, more than 90 signal processors, a big library of DSP effects, 6 aux buses, 4 subgroups, extensive LED metering, mixer save and recall, channel-strip save/recall/copy/paste, talkback, and more. Yet despite its many controls and features, it’s compact, rack-mountable, and easy to transport.
Build live mixes that glisten with clarity and detail—then record and enhance the performance with the power of StudioLive 16.4.2. Get creative in the studio. Build mixes, loops, sound effects, and more, then bring them out to your show and mix them with the live performance. Process channels using your favorite plug-ins and completely automate your entire performance. StudioLive 16.4.2 revolutionizes music production, opening endless creative possibilities.
See it. Touch it. Change it: the ease of analog meets the power of digital.
When we designed StudioLive, one of our primary goals was to provide a familiar interface that would keep all critical controls visible and accessible—not buried inside multiple menus.
Sit down at a StudioLive 16.4.2, and you see real hardware Mute and Solo buttons, trim controls, and clearly labeled, individual knobs for the semi-parametric EQ and dynamics processing. The master section—complete with Talkback, Monitor, Cue, and a choice of headphone sources—looks just like the master section on an analog board but with far more power and flexibility. Aux sends have their own controls. Every channel has a big, bright meter display.
Bottom line: if you’ve ever used an analog mixer, you’ll be right at home with a Studio Live 16.4.2AI And even if you’ve never used a mixer before, you’ll quickly be able to create quality mixes and recordings.
Which StudioLive is Best for You
Your mixing and recording needs aren’t necessarily exactly the same as everyone else’s. That’s why we created a StudioLive family of digital mixers, starting with the StudioLive StudioLive 16.4.2AI and the StudioLive 24.4.2.
Why choose the StudioLive 16.4.2 rather than the StudioLive 24.4.2 Obviously, if you don’t need more than 16 channels and 6 aux buses, the 16.4.2 might be your best choice. The StudioLive 16.4.2 weighs only 35 lbs. (15.9 kg), and you can rack-mount it, which makes it perfect for compact studio systems, rack-based contractor installs, and bands that want to do mobile recording. And the StudioLive 16.4.2 is very easy on your budget.
