    The StudioLive® 16 digital console/recorder is by far the most powerful mixer in its class. This third-generation StudioLive mixer is fully recallable, with 17 touch-sensitive, motorised faders and 17 recallable XMAX preamps. Yet despite its extensive features, the StudioLive 16 actually improves upon PreSonus®' legendary ease of use while letting you customise its workflow and operations. The StudioLive sound is better than ever, including all-new Fat Channel processing, re-engineered from the ground up, and vintage-style EQs and compressors. Add built-in AVB networking, onboard multitrack Capture™ recording to SD Card, and a complete suite of software, and you have a mixing and recording powerhouse that's equally formidable in live and studio applications.
    Integrated Multitrack Recording And Virtual Soundcheck
    PreSonus Capture™ recording software is an intuitive, rock-solid multitrack recording application with virtual soundcheck. It's installed directly into the StudioLive 16 so you can leave your laptop at home. Capture's one-touch recording makes it easy to record to the StudioLive 16's onboard SD multitrack recorder. When you're finished recording, open your Capture session in Studio One® for Mac® and Windows® (included), and the entire mix scene will transfer to your Studio One session, including fader levels, Fat Channel settings, and, yes, any drum solos that you may have had to endure that night.
    A Re-envisioned Fat Channel
    The StudioLive 16's Fat Channel has received a major overhaul while continuing to offer digital precision with the heart and soul of analogue. The new Fat Channel implements a plug-in-style workflow that features vintage-style EQ and compression options on every channel, from classic tube limiters to passive EQs. And in addition to channel processing, the StudioLive 16 offers 6-band, fully parametric EQ on all mix outputs. Enjoy extensive, studio-style processing when recording on location or running shows on the road!
    Define Your Own Layouts, Views, And Workflows
    StudioLive 16 goes above and beyond in providing ways to customise things to best fit the way you work. Now you can customise your Fat Channel layout, putting the parameters you care about most right at your fingertips. There are even several workflow options to personalise your mixing experience. For instance, you can control the mixer with multiple iPads and—optionally—a computer, each running UC Surface with a different view, enabling you to see and touch all of the controls you need at a given time.
    Customise Scenes And Presets In New And Powerful Ways
    With StudioLive 16, Presonus have upped the ante and given you more flexibility when working with scenes and presets. Mixer scenes now include Scene Safe. Similarly, they've expanded the concept of Fat Channel presets so that presets have, for practical purposes, become like scenes for individual channels, not only saving input and Fat Channel settings but also aux send and bus assignments. Of course you can also use preset filters to choose what you want to recall.
    Create Buses And Groups To Suit Your Workflow
    Don't you hate it when you're setting up for a show and find you have an unused subgroup—but you're short one monitor mix? That's not a problem anymore, thanks to 16 FlexMixes that can be individually designated as aux, subgroup, or matrix mixes. You get a total of 10 FlexMixes on analogue outputs, six on XLR connectors, and four on 1/4-inch TRS: the other six are routed over USB or AVB. These 16 FlexMixes are in addition to the 4 fixed subgroups that also are available via USB or AVB, giving you a total of 20 mix buses, not counting the main mix, solo, and FX buses. Presonus also provided 24 DCAs so you can more easily and flexibly control groups of channels. These are only a few of the many ways you can customise your StudioLive 16 mixer exactly to your needs and workflow.
    Integrated, Multiplatform Software
    PreSonus StudioLive 16 mixers are tightly integrated with an entire suite of state-of-the-art software. Mix wirelessly or over a wired network from anywhere, using UC Surface touch-control software for Mac, Windows, and iPad®. Remote control the mixer's recallable XMAX preamps and Fat Channel processing with Studio One Artist for low-latency recording with effects. (Reverb-drowned singers: rejoice!) Completely automate virtual soundchecks and record shows with Capture. Save mixer scenes with your live recordings in Capture and edit both in Studio One Artist. StudioLive 16 mixers and software work together to form a cohesive ecosystem that helps you achieve your creative vision.
    Network-Ready
    Networking isn't the future of professional audio systems: it's here now. StudioLive 16 mixers come equipped with an AVB Ethernet connection that enables you to network multiple StudioLive 16 mixers and compatible computers and stream up to 55 channels of audio to and from a Mac or Windows PC. You also get 38x38 recording via USB 2.0, giving you a choice of computer recording methods. Each channel can independently access its analogue input or its dedicated digital return from your computer. And recording is simple and easy: Just launch the included, preconfigured Capture software for one-click recording of all channel inputs and your main mix. Or record with the included Studio One Artist DAW—or with any recording software that supports ASIO or Core Audio.
    Remote Mix Control
    In addition to the AVB recording connection, StudioLive 16 consoles sport a 1 Gb Ethernet port that can connect to a wireless router or directly to a computer, providing remote control of virtually all features. Mix wirelessly or over a wired network from anywhere using UC Surface for Mac®, Windows®, and iPad®. Even add a second—or third, or even fourth!—screen for fast workflow. Musicians can control their monitor mixes onstage with QMix® UC for iPhone®, iPod® touch, or Android™ device without the need for large monitor networks. Go wireless, wired, or both.
    Extensive Connections
    The back panel of a StudioLive 16 console sports all of the connections you need for live sound and studio production. With flexible connectivity, superior audio quality, the ability to customise for your workflow, and powerful processing, mixing, and routing capabilities, you'll create your mixes in whatever manner works best for you. We just provide the tools.

I did loads of research and decided that this ticked all the boxes before it was available. And boy does it ever tick those boxes! And with the new release of StudioOne 3.5, the integration between this desk and the DAW is exemplary.

I'll give it a fuller review when I've used it properly in a...
