Absolutely the very best investment I have ever made!!
What is your opinion of this product?
PreSonus knocked it clean out of the park with a grand slam on this one. The "Studio Live" AR16 USB is positively worth every single penny I paid for it and you simply cannot beat the price-point for what you get in return. This thing is incredible and the features to me are ridiculously off of the charts for the little money it cost me. I still pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming, because this thing works so well, I mean, I can record the whole band right on the mixer itself instantly, without a single issue or jumping through any hoops.. The only thing that I hate about it, is that I did not get the speakers and stands that were offered with it, truly kicking myself over that part of my decision to get this extraordinary mixer, how are they making money, it just seems like they're giving way too much away in exchange for a pittance..

This thing is AMAZING
What is your opinion of this product?
I am an old PreSonus guy preamps, compressors, interfaces, I love their stuff, know one of the VPs...this is by far the best product I have gotten of theirs. I have built my computers around either the FirePod or the AudioBox USB interfaces to match up with SONOR and this thing is ridiculously simple to set up. Once you figure out the digital outs, you are up and running. Highly recommended for band rehearsal recording and home studio work...this thing is pretty much everything I could hope for in terms of home recording and small gig flexibility.
