General Your general opinion of this product. For small audio demands, this console is ideal as it contains all the processing you'll need, and then some. Considering the only control interfacing to date is firewire, Presonus took some major penalty points from me regarding compatibility friendliness. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Audio quality has always been excellent with Presonus so no arguments here. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? The product is straight forward regarding use. Being that there are no fader layers nor motorized faders, it eliminates the confusion but that can be overcome. It's about knowing your gear inside and out combined with discipline. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The features it comes with are worth the time. I'm just being picky in the concept of its control compatibility. Not everyone can afford computers, particularly laptops with firewire capabilities or the hoops that must be jumped through to get it. Presonus could've been a bit more lenient in that regard and made full MIDI control available. Also it couldn't hurt to have configured the EQ to be capable of adjustable bandwidth on all bands. The console may be small, but that should not affect the size of options. Sound How is the tone? Tonality is solid. Reliability How has it stood up over time? The past Presonus products I have owned never gave me any problems after owning them for 3 years. I anticipate this product will pass that record as long as it is properly maintained.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? built well Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Best features are good footprint, good preamps and ease of use for live and studio. Bad are sample rates are a bit low but human ear can't really hear past 44.1 anyway Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Very easy to use straight out of box. Once you "get" the Fat Channel it's smooth sailing. Sound How is the tone? Sounds good for the price for sure. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Haven't had it long enough for response General Your general opinion of this product. Great product so far

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Cant testify to that yet but I play out alot and if I get 3 or 4 yrs use out it glitch free, then it will be the best money spent. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? it pretty much has it all and more than you will probably ever need to use. The added bonus is because it is "digital" it limits are almost endless. Presonus will be continually adding features that can be downloaded to the mixer as they become available. You cant do that with an analog mixer! I just wish they would get the i-pad app. up and running for it. The capture software is awesome and we have been able to make some pro level mixdowns using the included studio one artist software. Just be forewarned the studione artist does not have mastering so you cannot burn a cd. That will cost you another $199.00 unless you already have the pro version for recording. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? use of the studiolive is definetly not going to be easy for a novice or anyone who's unfamiliar with how effects and signal processing works. For those that are, this mixer is going to blow your mind! Sound How is the tone? Absoulutely the best. Our sound has never been this good. We use an IEM system, and its like we are in the studio everytime we play. The ability to make personal stereo monitor mixes is leaps ahead of what you will get from an analog board. Another added bonus is the sound quality of the board is so good that we have struck our backline and eliminated all guitar and bass amps. We use pre-maps run direct. Rocktron prophesy for guitar & line 6 bass pod. all mounted one one sweet rolling rack with quality powered speakers. setup & tear down time is now 30 to 40 mins. We have all the local musicians scratching they're heads. The sound is HUGE! Reliability How has it stood up over time? so far so good. General Your general opinion of this product. Its like Mcdonalds, I'm lovin it!
