Compare Models

We offer three StudioLive® AI-series mixers and two StudioLive RM-series mixers. All are based on PreSonus® Active Integration technology. The most obvious difference between the two series is that StudioLive AI-series mixers have a complete, analog-like mixing surface with real faders, knobs, and buttons and a full set of LED meters, whereas StudioLive RM-series mixers are rack-mount units that are completely controlled with software.

In addition, unlike the XMAX preamps in the StudioLive AI series, the XMAX preamps in the StudioLive RM series are recallable, and their settings can be saved with a mixer scene, whereas StudioLive AI XMAX preamps are not digitally controllable and are adjusted with an analog trim pot. However, all preamps in the two lines are analog XMAX preamps and are sonically identical.

We offer two StudioLive RM models, which are compared in the chart below. For more information about StudioLive RM mixers, click here.

Available in 32-, 24-, and 16-channel frame sizes, every StudioLive AI-series Active Integration mixer provides the same rich, unified experience when combined with any or all of its companion software applications. Each model also offers the same robust Fat Channel processing on every input and output. The StudioLive 24.4.2AI and 32.4.2AI provide instant access to all these parameters from the mixing surface; advanced parameters like key filtering and fully variable Q are available for the 16.4.2AI from SL Remote-AI and VSL-AI.

Easily networkable, with the most powerful suite of integrated software applications available, which StudioLive AI or RM mixer is right for you?

The Light Heavyweight: StudioLive 16.0.2

If your needs and budget are more modest, consider the StudioLive 16.0.2 rather than a StudioLive AI-series mixer. The 16.0.2 doesn’t have the power of Active Integration but it’s plenty powerful enough for many applications, and it’s inexpensive, compact, lightweight, and ultra-portable.

The StudioLive 16.0.2 also has a very cool feature that the larger StudioLive AI mixers don't offer: MIDI control over main output level, effects levels and routing, and Scene change. It has MIDI I/O on standard 5-pin DIN jacks—perfect for remote control from a MIDI footpedal or other controller—and it can serve as a standard MIDI interface for your computer. The StudioLive 16.0.2 also can send and receive MIDI over FireWire, so you can automate its MIDI features from a DAW.

Here’s a quick comparison of the StudioLive 16.4.2AI and 16.0.2.
