Our first-generation StudioLive™ 24.4.2 and 16.4.2 changed the game, offering amazing performance and ease of use for a great price. So we packed the same audio quality, performance, and seamlessly integrated software (including remote control) into a smaller, even more affordable package: the StudioLive 16.0.2. True, the little fellow doesn't have the Active Integration™ muscle of the mighty StudioLive AI-series mixers but it's far more powerful than its size might lead you to believe. Furthermore, it's amazingly lightweight and offers MIDI control—unique in the StudioLive line. It's easy to love this portable powerhouse.

In a “footprint” of less than 2 square feet (0.19 sq. meters), 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. (It has a total of 13 Class A mic preamps, including the Talkback input.) 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 StudioLive™ 16.0.2 integrates a 16x16 FireWire interface and comes with Capture™, Studio One Artist™ recording and production software, and Virtual StudioLive (VSL) bidirectional control software. VSL, in turn, incorporates Smaart Measurement Technology™, which makes it easy to analyze and fine-tune your main mix.

Moreover, you can control virtually the entire mixer from an iPad® using PreSonus StudioLive Remote, and you can control the aux (monitor) mixes from an iPhone® or iPod touch® using PreSonus QMix™. Both are free downloads from the Apple App Store.
Because of our powerful, integrated, free software, StudioLive digital mixers can do far more than their competition.
There are five parts to this unique system:
-Virtual StudioLive with Smaart for laptop control, editor/librarian functions, and sound-system analysis and correction
-StudioLive Remote for iPad remote control (available free from the Apple App Store)
-QMix™ for iPhone and iPod touch remote control (available free from the Apple App Store)
-Capture™ for two-click multi-track recording and playback
-Studio One Artist Digital Audio Workstation for enhancing your recordings (and for direct recording from StudioLive 16.0.2 or any compatible interface)

Written exclusively for StudioLive mixers, Virtual StudioLive (VSL) provides a complete visual representation of the mixer, allowing you to control the features with a mouse, trackpad, or trackball on a FireWire-equipped Mac® or PC. Add third-party VPN software, and you can even control StudioLive mixers over the Internet—ideal for contractors. To get a competing mixer with computer control even close to this complete, you'd have to pay several times as much.

You’re mixing a live show with an old-skool mixer—make that any mixer other than StudioLive—and you need to check the sound underneath the balcony—or in the balcony, for that matter. Or you’re sound-checking and want to hear the stage monitors for yourself. If you can’t leave the mixing station, you have to rely on someone else’s ears. If you don’t have a reliable crew, you don’t have a chance.
You can say goodbye to that problem if you use a 16.0.2 and an Apple iPad! With StudioLive Remote for iPad—available free from the Apple App Store—you have complete, real-time, wireless remote control over Virtual StudioLive, which in turn offers real-time control over the StudioLive mixer. As long as you have a wireless connection between your iPad and computer (and are connected via FireWire to the 16.0.2), you are in control of the console.

We've given you a lot of sonic control with the StudioLive, Virtual StudioLive, and StudioLive Remote. It's only fair that we help you give the band control of their sound, too. With PreSonus' free QMix™, each band member can control their own StudioLive aux (monitor) mix from an iPhone® or iPod® touch. QMix lets you adjust a single aux mix per iPhone. Select inputs and levels for your custom monitor mix, and then use the Wheel of Me to get, well… “more me”… quickly during performances.
You can even set permissions to ensure that the bass player, always the practical joker, can't mess with the hot-tempered lead singer's monitor mix. Otherwise, that bass player is going to get in trouble someday. We're just sayin'…

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 songs—all thanks to the magic of MIDI control.

Two factors work against getting that Perfect Mix with an analog mixer. First, the Perfect Mix can be hard to reproduce a week, day, or hour after you perfect it. And second, a good mix should be dynamic: levels, effects, and EQ should be tailored to each song or segment of the show, service, or presentation.
StudioLive solves this problem by letting you save all of your digital settings for quick setup and recall.
