Manufacturer's Description from Presonus

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, a StudioLive mixer will spoil you 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.

The 32-channel, 14-aux PreSonus® StudioLive™ 32.4.2AI starts with all the strengths of previous StudioLive models—and then pushes the technology to the next level.

StudioLive 32.4.2AI is built with next-generation Active Integration technology that adds unprecedented power for mixing consoles anywhere near this price class. So while the 32.4.2AI looks and feels much like its non-AI counterparts it has with far more computing power, which makes possible some very useful new features.

For starters, you get twice as many internal effects buses and 31-band graphic EQs. We’ve added six mute groups and user-assignable Quick Scene buttons. You’ll love the ability to create two complete sets of EQ and dynamics settings for a channel or bus and then make quick A/B comparisons at the touch of a button.

A built-in 48x34 FireWire S800 interface is standard equipment but Thunderbolt and Ethernet (Dante) cards are expected by the end of 2013. A dedicated USB 2 port and included Wi-Fi LAN adapter lets you control the mixer wirelessly—even without a Mac® or Windows® PC.

Of course, you get the latest version of our tightly integrated software bundle, including updated Capture™ 2.0 recording software, Studio One Artist® DAW, and Virtual StudioLive-AI editor/librarian/control software with Smaart Measurement Technology™. StudioLive Remote-AI for iPad® and QMix™-AI for iPhone®/iPod® touch will both be available free from the Apple App Store.


Virtual StudioLive-AI: The magic of computer control.
Despite its analog-like mixing surface, this is very much a digital console, and it offers features no analog mixer—and very few digital boards—can match. For example, the ability to control the StudioLive mixer from a laptop adds tremendous flexibility and convenience—and with the bundled Virtual StudioLive-AI bidirectional control/editor/librarian software, you get it all for free. 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 networked Mac® or Windows® PC. Add third-party VPN software, and you can even control StudioLive mixers over the Internet—ideal for contractors.

Even better: wireless control!
The StudioLive 32.4.2AI sports an Ethernet port that allows you to connect to a wireless router for wired Ethernet and wireless Wi-Fi networking. In addition, the mixer has a USB 2.0 port that hosts the included USB Wi-Fi LAN adapter, providing wireless networking without a router for situations where a less powerful, ad hoc Wi-Fi connection is sufficient.

In this way, the mixer can be controlled from a laptop using VSL and from an iPad® using StudioLive Remote-AI, which is available free from the Apple App Store. SL Remote-AI is easy to use, provides control of almost every feature of the StudioLive—including Scene changes and Smaart®. And it looks and feels like an iPad app should.

Yet even better: control of monitor mixes from iPhones and iPod touches!
We've given you a lot of sonic control with the StudioLive 32.4.2AI, Virtual StudioLive-AI, and StudioLive Remote-AI. It's only fair that we help you give the band
