PreSonus 24-Channel Digital Mixer GEN III RACK

StudioLive 24R is a great addition to the PreSonus StudioLive family. Use it however you'd like - as a compact (2RU) remote stage box, allowing you to lose the analogue core, and simply connect to your FOH StudioLive mixer via ethernet cable.

OR, you can do the above... and station yourself at side of stage, mixing monitors with your iPad.

OR - throw away the idea of physical faders, and go-it-alone with StudioLive 24R as your rackmount FOH and monitor mixer, all controlled via your iPad.

Here's what PreSonus has to say:
"The result of ten years of R&D, third-generation StudioLive Series III rack mixers are fully recallable, including remote-controlled XMAX preamps. The coveted StudioLive sound is better than ever, including third-generation Fat Channel processing, re-engineered from the ground up, and vintage-style EQs and compressors. Add built-in AVB networking, multitrack recording via USB 2.0 and AVB, onboard stereo recording to SD Card, and a complete suite of software, and you have a mixing and recording powerhouse that’s equally formidable as a stage box/monitor mixer, as a rackmount front-of-house mixer controlled from a touchscreen computer or tablet, and as the heart of your studio"
