4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"PreSonus StudioLive 16.4.2AI 16-Channel"
Overall: The board is nicely laid out and very much intuitive to use. Solid construction and very attractive design. I am delighted with this purchase. The software will let you record using the board and all its fat channel settings, 16 tracks of audio to your computer interface at one time.. Then once you have that recorded you can add additional tracks to your project and just use a couple channels of the board for a stereo mix of the recorded tracks, effectively allowing you to have 24 or more mix tracks in the software mixer that sum to only two channels on your boards inputs faders..
Style of Music: I have recorded everything from hard rock to classical music and voice overs for TV spots

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Presonus Studiolive 16.4.2AI"
Overall: I am a first time ZZounds customer. My experience was mostly good. The pay as you play feature is great. The Presonus board is great as well. Once I gain a working knowledge of it it'll be even better. My only complaint - and it isn't a small one- is the price matching guarantee proved to be anything but. I had an authorized dealer quote me a substantially lower price. I submitted it to ZZounds for a price match. They claimed that they could not verify the authorization of the other dealer to sell Presonus and on those grounds denied the match. If it weren't for the pay as you play option I would have bought it elsewhere.
Style of Music: Dance / funk. 70's thru this minute!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
