"We are always very happy with the service we receive from Kraft Music. We live nearby and purchased a digital piano at the old location. The new location is much more welcoming for people to walk in and browse the pianos and now the guitars. The people working always make us feel welcome." - Craig, WI

"I love my digital piano! Your service was excellent as was your price. It was as advertised!" - Greg, PA

Meet the StudioLive 16.0.2!

Our StudioLive™ 24.4.2 and 16.4.2 changed the game, offering amazing performance and ease of use for a great price. Now we've packed the same audio quality, performance, seamlessly integrated software (including remote control) into a smaller, even more affordable package.

Small size. Bigger possibilities.
In a "footprint" of less than 2 square feet (0.19 sq. meters), the compact, 16-channel StudioLive 16.0.2 offers 8 mono input channels and 4 stereo channels and provides 12 XMAX™ Class A solid-state mic preamps. (It has a total of 13 Class A mic preamps, including the Talkback input.)

But don't let its size fool you; the 16.0.2 is jam-packed with features and processing power, employs the same workflow and easy-to-use mixing-surface design as the bigger StudioLive boards, and sounds every bit as good, with the same high-definition, wide-dynamic-range, digital converters.

More than a mixer: an integrated system.
The StudioLive™ 16.0.2 integrates a 16x16 FireWire interface and comes with Capture™, Studio One Artist™ recording and production software, and Virtual StudioLive (VSL) bidirectional control software. VSL, in turn, incorporates Smaart Measurement Technology™, which makes it easy to analyze and fine-tune your main mix.

Moreover, you can control virtually the entire mixer from an iPad® using PreSonus StudioLive Remote, and you can control the aux (monitor) mixes from an iPhone® or iPod touch® using PreSonus QMix™. Both are free downloads from the Apple App Store.

Because of our powerful, integrated, free software, StudioLive digital mixers can do far more than their competition.

There are five parts to this unique system:

  • Virtual StudioLive with Smaart for laptop control, editor/librarian functions, and sound-system analysis and correction
  • StudioLive Remote for iPad remote control (available free from the Apple App Store)
  • QMix™ for iPhone and iPod touch remote control (available free from the Apple App Store)
  • Capture™ for two-click multi-track recording and playback
  • Studio One Artist Digital Audio Workstation for enhancing your recordings (and for direct recording from StudioLive 16.0.2 or any compatible interface)

Virtual StudioLive: The magic of computer control.
Written exclusively for StudioLive mixers, Virtual StudioLive (VSL) provides a complete visual representation of the mixer, allowing you to control the features with a mouse, trackpad, or trackball on a FireWire-equipped Mac® or PC. Add third-party VPN software, and you can even control StudioLive mixers over the Internet—ideal for contractors. To get a competing mixer with computer control even close to this complete, you'd have to pay several times as much.

Even better: wireless control!
You're mixing a live show with an old-skool mixer—make that any mixer other than StudioLive—and you need to check the sound underneath the balcony—or in the balcony, for that matter. Or you're sound-checking and want to hear the stage monitors for yourself. If you can't leave the mixing station, you have to rely on someone else's ears. If you don't have a reliable crew, you don't have a chance.

You can say goodbye to that problem if you use a 16.0.2 and an Apple iPad! With StudioLive Remote for iPad—available free from the Apple App Store—you have complete, real-time, wireless remote control over Virtual StudioLive, which in turn offers real-time control over the StudioLive mixer. As long as you have a wireless connection between your iPad and computer (and are connected via FireWire to the 16.0.2), you are in control of the console.

Yet even better: control of monitor mixes from iPhones and iPod touches!
We've given you a lot of sonic control with the StudioLive, Virtual StudioLive, and StudioLive Remote. It's only fair that we help you give the band control of their sound, too. With PreSonus' free QMix™, each band member can control their own StudioLive aux (monitor) mix from an iPhone® or iPod® touch. QMix lets you adjust a single aux mix per iPhone. Select inputs and levels for your custom monitor mix, and then use the Wheel of Me to get, well… "more me"… quickly during performances.

You can even set permissions to ensure that the bass player, always the practical joker, can't mess with the hot-tempered lead singer's monitor mix. Otherwise, that bass player is going to get in trouble someday. We're just sayin'….

Recording made easy with Capture™.
Check out our competition, and you'll discover that their "recording" capabilities amount to stereo-only or just four channels — or require expensive add-ons.

With the StudioLive 16.0.2, if you have a laptop, you have a multitrack digital recorder instantly ready to capture your gig, church service, or presentation.

Just two mouse clicks engages Capture recording software. When you install it on your laptop, it automatically "maps" to the outputs of the 16.0.2 to automatically record all 16 input channels.

Studio One® Artist — A serious digital audio workstation.
Once you're recorded studio tracks or a live multi-track performance, it's time to finish it with effects and a good mix (not to mention editing out that huge burst of feedback during the third song).

Studio One is a groundbreaking music-creation and -production application for Mac OS X and Windows XP/Vista/7 that makes audio recording and MIDI sequencing ridiculously simple right out of the box.

Studio One changes the rules of the game with fresh code, innovative drag-and-drop features, advanced MIDI mapping, auto-configuration with your StudioLive 16.0.2, insanely good audio quality, unlimited tracks and plug-ins per track, and a powerful, inventive Start page. Studio One Artist also comes with a Native Effects™ 32-bit effects library, complete with dynamics processors, reverbs, modulation effects, amp simulators, and more. And with Studio One's free Nimbit® extension, you can immediately start selling your music.

130 quality signal processors at your fingertips.
The 16.0.2's Fat Channel is well stocked with compressors, limiters, gates, phase reverse, high-pass filters, and 3-band semi-parametric EQ. Two stereo, 32-bit floating-point effects processors deliver delay and reverb effects.

Not just effects. Effects you'd expect from a $600 standalone processor.
You get two programmable, 32-bit floating point, stereo DSP effects engines, loaded with 50 reverb, delay, and time-based effects presets that you can really use.

The reverbs are so rich and detailed that you feel like you're there. Delays are precise. Slap echo sounds like old-skool tape effects. All 50 effects have easy-to-use parameter adjustment, tap tempo, and store and recall selection for the ultimate in creative flexibility.

The StudioLive 16.0.2 also sports a stereo 31-band graphic equalizer on the main outputs, so you can compensate for room acoustics and speaker response.

Whether StudioLive's dozens of signal processors and 50 DSP effect presets were on gigundo channel strips, in a whopping rack of outboard gear, or neatly condensed into our Fat Channel, they have a lot of settings to remember and reset at every performance. That's where the power of digital comes in: StudioLive never forgets.

Our first compact mixer with MIDI control from a footpedal.
Moreover, a glance at the rear panel reveals that "Junior" offers something the two bigger boards don't: MIDI In and Out. You can recall Scenes from a DAW using MIDI Program Changes, control the main output volume and effects level, and even mute effects between songs—all thanks to the magic of MIDI control.

What was then is now: complete store and recall.
Two factors work against getting that Perfect Mix with an analog mixer. First, the Perfect Mix can be hard to reproduce a week, day, or hour after you perfect it. And second, a good mix should be dynamic: levels, effects, and EQ should be tailored to each song or segment of the show, service, or presentation.

StudioLive solves this problem by letting you save all of your digital settings for quick setup and recall.

A Smaart addition to your system.
Building a great mix is the goal of every front-of-house engineer. Fortunately, it's a lot easier with the StudioLive 16.0.2 mixer because the included VSL control/editor/librarian software incorporates Rational Acoustics' Smaart Measurement Technology™ Spectra™ module.

Smaart Measurement Technology™ Spectra™ module

Spectra includes both an RTA and Spectrograph that overlays the Main bus' graphic EQ. This makes fine-tuning your mix easier because you can see what your ears are hearing. Need to figure out what frequency is making your kick drum sound like a kickball? Using the StudioLive's Solo In Place feature, you can view the frequency response of just that channel.

Best of all, you don't need an engineering degree to use VSL with Smaart!

Which StudioLive is best for you?
Why choose the StudioLive 16.0.2 rather than the StudioLive 16.4.2, 24.4.2, or 32.4.2AI? The StudioLive 16.0.2 is much lighter and more compact than the other models, and it's considerably less expensive. And although you cannot cascade two 16.0.2s to make a larger system, as you can with the larger models, you can cascade a 16.0.2 with any FireStudio-series interface for additional recording inputs.

The StudioLive 16.0.2 also has a very cool feature that the larger StudioLives don't offer: MIDI control over main output level, effects levels and routing, and Scene change.

On the other hand, the StudioLive 16.4.2, 24.4.2, and 32.4.2AI do have considerably more features.
