PreSonus StudioLive 24R is equipped for AVB networking, allowing it to be connected to another Series III mixer via a single, lightweight CAT5e or CAT6 Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for heavy, expensive copper snakes, and the signal degradation caused by long cable runs. All the on-board XMAX mic preamps can be remotely controlled from the front-of-house position. In stage box + monitor mixer mode, the StudioLive 24R serves as a professional networked stage box, and is a full-blown monitor mixer with advanced processing and mixing power.
The 24R offers professional-quality sound with its on-board Series III processors and 3rd generation Fat Channel, which implements a plug-in-style workflow that features vintage-style EQ and compression options on every channel, from classic tube limiters to passive EQs. In addition to channel processing, the 24R offers 6-band, fully parametric EQ on all mix outputs. There are 12 FlexMixes that can be individually designated as aux, subgroup, or matrix mixes, while 24 Filter DCAs offer easy and flexible control over groups of channels.
There are 24 combo XLR-1/4″ inputs (mic/line) and an additional set of stereo RCA inputs for flexibility. The 12 FlexMix outputs feature 1/4″ TRS connectors, while the main output offers balanced XLR connectors. A built-in SD card recorder allows you to quickly and easily record the main mix or any other stereo mix without the need for a computer. What’s more, you can simultaneously multitrack record to your laptop via USB or AVB and record in stereo to SD.
The StudioLive 24R ships with an integrated software package including UC Surface 2 touch-control software (Mac/PC/iOS), Capture recording software (Mac/PC), Studio One Artist DAW software (Mac/PC), QMix personal monitoring app (iOS/Android).
