Manufacturer's Description from Presonus

The small format mixer with large format power.

The StudioLive 64S is a 64-channel mixer that brings the power of a large format console to small format digital mixing. Powered by the new quad-core PreSonus FLEX DSP Engine, the StudioLive 64S digital mixer is equipped with 76 mixing channels, 43 mix buses, and 526 simultaneous processors—including 8 stereo reverberation systems, and Fat Channel plug-in models on every input channel and mix bus. With 128 (64X64) channels of USB recording, 128 channels of AVB I/O, flexible routing options, and the studio-grade audio quality that made StudioLive mixers famous, the StudioLive 64S delivers a truly exceptional mixing experience that's in a class of its own.

 

The scalable digital mixer.
The StudioLive 64S digital mixer and the complete PreSonus® StudioLive Series III ecosystem of AVB networking products allow you to create a system that is truly customized for your needs. Connect NSB-series stage boxes to add remote analog inputs and outputs wherever they’re required and complete your 64-channel, 32-bus StudioLive 64S. Add EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers to give your musicians their own customizable 16-channel monitor mix. Multiple StudioLive Series III digital mixers can be networked together, allowing you to route audio to and from any device on the audio network thanks to the flexibility of Digital Patching available both onboard your StudioLive 64S digital mixer and inside UC Surface remote mixer software.

 

Superior sound.
We built our reputation designing great-sounding analog circuits for critical studio recording environments, and we put all of that experience into designing the StudioLive 64S digital mixer. In 1995, PreSonus patented digital control over analog circuits with our first studio product. Building on this legacy, we created a separate digital volume-control circuit ahead of our lauded analog XMAX mic preamp design, providing the convenience of digital recall without sacrificing fidelity. This allows the StudioLive 64S mic preamps to be remote-controlled with UC Surface software or Studio One, and when you load a StudioLive 64S mixer scene, the mic preamp trim values can be recalled along with the other settings.

 

Create the buses and groups you need.
PreSonus designed the StudioLive 64S digital mixer to adapt to your changing needs, whether you’re mixing in the studio or on a busy festival stage. Its 32 FlexMixes can be individually configured to function as an aux bus, a subgroup, or a matrix mix. Eight designated effects buses plus stereo and mono main buses make a total of 43 mix buses in addition to an independent solo bus. We also provided 24 DCAs so you can more easily and flexibly control groups of channels. The independent Main Mono bus can be configured with individual channel sends to feed a subwoofer or as the center channel in an LCR system, complete with a Center Divergence control on each channel to more precisely place your pan positions.

 

Reconfigure your mix without unplugging a cable.
StudioLive Series III digital mixers incorporate the concept of an analog patchbay and digitize it. This lets you patch any analog input or digital return (AVB, USB, or SD Card) to any channel to customize your mix configuration. This flexible feature also allows you to freely route audio to your AVB network and record any of the inputs and FlexMixes on the 64 USB sends. Digital Patching also makes it easy to quickly route to and source from your AVB audio network when using the StudioLive 64S as part of a complete networked audio system.

 

The ultimate USB audio interface and control surface.
With 128 (64x64) channels of recording over USB, the StudioLive 64S is not just the best digital mixer for live sound recording; it’s the best digital mixer for the studio as well. Each channel can independently access its analog input or its dedicated digital return from your computer. While compatible with any DAW, Studio One and the StudioLive 64S are the perfect pair to elevate your studio recording environment. Remotely control your StudioLive 64S digital mixer’s recallable XMAX mic preamps and Fat Channel processing from Studio One Artist. Press the DAW button on your StudioLive 64S digital mixer and use the 33 touch-sensitive motorized faders to control your Studio One mix. Seamless integration and thoughtful bidirectional control with Studio One make the StudioLive 64S the best mixing console for the modern recording studio.

 

World-class recording software included.
PreSonus Studio One® Artist DAW is included with the StudioLive 64S. Studio One seamlessly combines the time-tested and proven recording studio model with today’s beat- and loop-oriented production process so you can spend your precious time creating music instead of wondering what to click next.

 

Fat Channel plug-ins bring your mix to life for stage or studio.
The dynamic Fat Channel on the StudioLive 64S digital mixer puts critical EQ and dynamics processing beneath your fingertips while giving you fast access to every parameter. The ten included vintage EQ and classic compressor Fat Channel plug-in models can be used onboard your mixer, as well as within Studio One. And when you’re ready for more options, PreSonus offers four Fat Channel plug-in collections with 15 additional models from which to choose, giving you a host of new signal processing options. Fat Channel plug-ins can be inserted on every input channel and output bus. Now you can enjoy extensive, studio-style processing whether recording in the studio or running shows on the road.

 

Remote control your digital mixer from anywhere, on any device.
PreSonus StudioLive Series III digital mixers are tightly integrated with an entire suite of state-of-the-art software. Mix wirelessly using UC Surface touch-control software for macOS®, Windows, iPad® and Android™. Control your monitor mixes with QMix®-UC for iPhone®, iPod® touch, and Android devices. Whether you’re adjusting monitor mixes on stage, moving around the room to dial in your mix, or using your mobile device as a second screen for your StudioLive 64S digital mixer, remotely controlling your mix from anywhere just got easier.

 

A complete networked solution.
The StudioLive Series III ecosystem of networked products are at the forefront of AVB networking technology. Designed to complement each other, the ecosystem is easily expanded and quickly configured. The StudioLive 64S is your command center to create the ultimate AVB network. Route audio to EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers. Control the gain staging and add up to 64 inputs using NSB-series stage boxes and other StudioLive Series III digital mixers. With powerful plug-in processing, a plethora of mix buses, and integrated networking onboard, the StudioLive 64S brings the large format mixing experience to the compact desktop digital mixer.

 

Get Connected.
The back panel of a StudioLive 64S digital mixer is equipped with plenty of local analog I/O. 32 local analog mic/line channel inputs make it easy to connect a variety of gear. 16 local mix outputs let you route to floor monitors, delay stacks and more. But the local I/O is only half the story. Connect your StudioLive 64S digital mixer to an AVB audio network and add remote inputs and outputs anywhere you need them using NSB-series stage boxes.

 

Includes Studio Magic Plug-in Suite.

This suite of plug-ins adds a wealth of fresh virtual instruments and effects to Studio One. Cherry-picked from the first names in virtual instruments and effects, each plug-in brings a different flavor of practical magic to your songs. These plug-ins aren't gimmicky one-trick ponies — these are real-deal workhorses that you'll rely on for countless mixes.
