48 compelling reasons to mix with StudioLive AI.
Easy to use, equipped with XMAX preamps and Burr-Brown converters, loaded with no-compromises signal processing, and flawlessly integrated with state-of-the-art software, StudioLive® AI Active Integration mixing consoles deliver the most creative environment possible for live performance and studio music production. StudioLive 48AI Mix Systems consist of two cascaded StudioLive 24.4.2AI consoles, creating the functional equivalent of a 48-channel mixer. These feature-rich mixing systems are a fraction of the size, weight, and price of a conventional large-format digital console yet offer an analog-style workflow and features no console near their price class can match.
Seamlessly integrated, with the power and performance of StudioLive AI.
StudioLive 48AI Mix Systems perform as a cohesive 48-channel mixer and offer 22 mix buses (including 4 reverb and 4 delay processors with dedicated buses), discrete EQ and dynamics processors on every input and output, and a familiar, surface-driven workflow with one-to-one control over every channel. Every channel is routed through the bus outputs of the Master mixer and every global setting is controlled from the Master to provide seamless integration between the two cascaded consoles. Each StudioLive 48AI Mix System provides a robust 64x50 FireWire audio interface, making it easy to record and play audio with a Mac® or Windows® PC. All the power and performance available to a single StudioLive 24.4.2AI mixer are available to a cascaded StudioLive 48AI Mix System.
Integrated, multiplatform software for flexible control and one-click recording.
Like every StudioLive AI mixer, StudioLive 48AI Mix Systems are tightly integrated with an entire suite of state-of-the-art software. Mix wirelessly or over a wired network from anywhere using UC Surface for Mac, Windows, and iPad®. Musicians control their monitor mixes onstage with QMix®-UC for iPhone®/iPod® touch and Android™ devices. Completely automate virtual soundchecks and record shows with Capture™. Save mixer scenes with your live 64-track recordings in Capture and edit both in Studio One® Artist. Only StudioLive AI-series mixers and software work together to form a cohesive ecosystem that helps you achieve your creative vision.
Easy networking with future-looking options.
It’s easy to network the two mixers in a StudioLive 48AI Mix System: Simply connect the mixers with a FireWire 800 cable, set the mixer on the left to “Slave,” and you’re there. Connect each mixer to a wireless router with a standard Ethernet cable and you’re ready to remote control your StudioLive AI Mix System from an iPad or iPhone or go wireless using the included USB Wi-Fi LAN adapters. Or go all-in with the latest technology by equipping both mixers with optional Dante or AVB cards. Now you not only have cascading but also advanced networking with PreSonus StudioLive RM-series rack mixers, StudioLive AI Active Integration loudspeakers, and more.
Configurable, flexible, and expandable.
Only StudioLive Active Integration mixers let you create a large-format console on a small-format budget. With StudioLive 48AI Mix Systems, you get the high channel counts required for large shows and studio projects with all the cutting-edge hardware and software advantages of StudioLive Active Integration systems.

Now includes Studio Magic plug-in suite.
This suite of plug-ins brings extended sonic functionality into Studio One. Cherry-picked from the first names in virtual instruments and effects, each one brings a different flavor of practical magic to your songs. These plug-ins aren't gimmicky one-trick ponies — these are real-deal workhorses that you'll find yourself relying on for countless mixes.
SPL Attacker is a micro-plug-in that employs the same Differential Envelope processing technique as SPL’s famed Transient Designer. Using SPL Attacker, all attack events can be amplified, regardless of their signal level. By focusing on the initial transient instead of specific frequencies, SPL Attacker amplifies just the attack curves of a sound event. This allows instruments to be mixed at lower levels, which opens up space in the mix, while the relationship between tracks is preserved.
Mäag Audio EQ2 delivers the sound of the Mäag Audio EQ2 two-band hardware equalizer. Mäag Audio’s EQ design allows for exceptionally low phase shift across all EQ adjustments, which helps maintain the integrity of your mix’s original sound while enhancing the very high “air” frequencies. An input attenuator lets you normalize levels after applying EQ.
Lexicon’s MPX-i Reverb delivers seven classic Lexicon plate, hall, chamber, and room reverbs. A streamlined interface and 25 versatile, finely crafted presets enable you to quickly get the sound you want. Input and output metering let you monitor levels at a glance.
The Eventide H910 plug-in is a faithful re-creation of the classic H910 Harmonizer, which offered unique combinations of pitch shifting, modulation, and delay. Use pitch changing to create specific musical intervals and perfect harmonies, spread guitars, fatten snares, apply subtle organic detuning to synths, and add slap-back delays to vocals.
Also from Eventide comes the 2016 Stereo Room, which delivers a natural, yet distinctive-sounding reverb that can be lush or subtle. Derived from Eventide’s SP2016 hardware processor, its simple, intuitive controls allow you to fine tune your virtual space, from a dark hallway to a bright studio vocal room. Use multiple instances to bring out the character of different parts of a track.
The Brainworx bx_opto compressor combines the best aspects and anomalies from several legendary, light-dependent compressor circuits. The result is a powerful dynamics processor, teeming with character and delivering sounds that can’t be achieved with analog optical compressors.
Completing the Studio Magic bundle is Arturia’s Analog Lab Lite, a “Greatest Hits” collection of physically modeled—not sampled—classic analog synths, organs, string machines, and pianos from Arturia’s V-Collection of virtual instruments. Enjoy models of iconic instruments from Oberheim, Roland, Sequential Circuits, ARP, Hammond, Fender, Wurlitzer, Moog, and Vox.
