PreSonus StudioLive 48AI 48x8x2 Mixer

The PreSonus StudioLive 48AI 48-Channel Digital Mix System introduces a powerful user interface, amazing DSP performance, direct Wi-Fi and LAN communication, enhanced workflow, and tightly integrated software suite! Retaining the same functionality that made StudioLive mixers famous, while adding even more processing power, enhanced workflow features, and Active Integration technology.

Get a closer look at the StudioLive 48AI and 64AI in this video from PreSonus:


PreSonus designed the StudioLive 48AI digital mixing console with wireless or wired connectivity to any standard router and networks with Macs, PCs, and iOS devices running the StudioLive AI Software Library, which features VSL-AI with Smaart audio analysis, specialized iOS apps, Capture 2.1, and Studio One Artist 2.6 DAW.

The StudioLive 48AI mixer features an extensive analog patch bay for flexible connectivity; a 64x50 FireWire s800 interface for easy recording and virtual soundchecks; optional Thunderbolt, Dante, or AVB for flexible networking; extensive dual signal processing on every channel and bus, with A/B comparison; and 20 dedicated mix buses for easy configuration. Best of all, all controls are one-to-one, so there are no layers to get lost in, and your main mix is always at your fingertips.

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.
