Quick OverviewMixer Presonus Studiolive 16.0.2 Digital
Meet the StudioLive 16.0.2!
Our StudioLive 24.4.2 and 16.4.2 changed the game, offering amazing performance and ease of use for a great price. Now weve packed the same audio quality, performance, seamlessly integrated software (including remote control) into a smaller, even more affordable package.Small size. Bigger possibilities.
In a footprint of less than 2 square feet (0.19 m2), 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. (Well, okay, it actually has 13 XMAX preamps; the Talkback input has one, too.)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. 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. Yet even better: control of monitor mixes from iPhones and iPod touches!
Yes, it would be cool if every performer could have their own iPad right on stage with them and its possible with StudioLive Remote. But lets get real: iPads are not inexpensive. So we created a second app just for the iPhone and 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.Recording made easy with Capture.
Check out our competition, and youll discover that their recording capabilities amount to stereo-only or just four channels or require expensive add-ons.
With the StudioLive 16.0.2, if you have a laptop, you have a multitrack digital recorder instantly ready to capture your gig, church service, or presentation.
Just two mouse clicks engages Capture 1.1 recording software. When you install it on your laptop, it automatically maps to the outputs of the 16.0.2 to automatically record all 16 input channels. Heres a particularly cool feature: Capture lets you insert markers during a live recording between songs or parts of a worship service or presentationwith a single mouse-click. Later, when you are ready to edit the performance, you can export each region you have marked as a separate file, using a single command. This saves hours and hours of work!
Because StudioLive can so easily return FireWire playback streams from your computer, you can pull off nifty tricks. You can create backing tracks at your studio and seamlessly blend them with live performance.
Or virtually soundcheck your band and fine-tune the P.A. and monitors in a new venue, even when the bands not there yet. (The drummer got stuck in traffic again.)
And Capture can run simultaneously with Virtual StudioLive and SL Remote, so you can personally soundcheck every part of the stage and house.Studio One Artist A serious digital audio workstation.
Once youre recorded studio tracks or a live multi-track performance, its time to finish it with effects and a good mix (not to mention editing out that huge burst of feedback during the third song).
Studio One is a groundbreaking music-creation and -production application for Mac OS X and Windows XP/Vista/7 that makes audio recording and MIDI sequencing ridiculously simple right out of the box.
Studio One changes the rules of the game with fresh code, innovative drag-and-drop features, advanced MIDI mapping, auto-configuration with your StudioLive 16.0.2, insanely good audio quality, unlimited tracks and plug-ins per track, and a powerful, inventive Start page. And Studio One Artist comes with a Native Effects 32-bit effects library, complete with dynamics processors, reverbs, modulations effects, amp simulators, and more.130 quality signal processors at your fingertips.
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.Our first compact mixer with MIDI control from a footpedal.
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 songsall thanks to the magic of MIDI control.What was then is now: complete store and recall.
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.

SpecificationsComputer system requirements:
Below are the minimum computer-system requirements for your StudioLive 16.0.2.
Note that the speed of your processor, amount of RAM and size and speed of your hard drive will greatly affect the overall performance of your recording system. Also, a more powerful system (faster processor with more RAM) will allow for lower latency (signal delay) that you might experience while monitoring audio or MIDI signals.
Monitor resolution for both PC and Macintosh should be no lower than 1024x768 pixels.
