PLASA was the occasion for the first appearance anywhere, according to Source Distribution’s marketing co-ordinator Alex Theakston, of the PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2AI mixer. The desk was presented on the Source booth alongside its bigger brother, the 32.4.2AI, which was launched earlier in the year.
With around 50,000 of the original StudioLive mixers having been sold worldwide already, these two desks (for ‘Active Integration’) retain the same surface-driven functionality of the first generation series but with enhanced feature sets and 64-times the processing power. (The 24-fader 24.4.2AI is shown in the picture foreground.)
Burr-Brown A/D/A converters are employed on the inputs and outputs, plus a new DSP architecture based on the acclaimed 64-bit Studio One (software) summing engine. Integrated WiFi control means that tablet devices such as iPads can be used with the desks without the need for an additional laptop/PC.
Source also presented PreSonus’ Active Integration PA loudspeakers, designed in conjunction with Fulcrum Acoustics’ co-founder Dave Gunness, at the ExCeL show. Other products on the booth included M-series live sound microphones from RØDE, multi-channel Apollo series audio interfaces from Universal Audio and digital effects.
