16-Channel Digital Mixer with 12 XMAX Class-A Solid-State Mic Preamps, MIDI Control, and Built-In Multichannel Recording Interface


Small Size. Bigger Possibilities

In a footprint of less than 2 square feet (0.19 square meters), the compact, 16-channel StudioLive® 16.0.2 offers 8 mono input channels, 4 stereo channels, and 4 aux buses, each with a high-quality, 60 mm fader. You get generous analog I/O, 12 XMAX Class A solid-state mic preamps, a Talkback input with Class A mic preamp, extensive signal processing with physical controls, MIDI control, accurate metering, and a built-in multichannel recording interface. As with all StudioLive mixers, the 16.0.2 comes with a suite of tightly integrated recording, control, and audio analysis software. And it’s so lightweight and compact that you can easily hold it in one hand and tuck it under your arm.

  • 8 mono mic/line channel inputs
  • 4 stereo line channel inputs

  • Software bundle for Mac® and Windows®
  • Lockout mode protects your settings from meddlers and accidents
  • MIDI Control Mode

You'll Never Run Out of Signal Processors

StudioLive 16.0.2 mixers provide plenty of DSP power, with no limitations, no shared resources, no figuring out what processing is available where. You have all of the processing available at all times, with no compromises or caveats. The unique Fat Channel provides a compressor, limiter, expander, and 3-band semi-parametric EQ on every channel and bus; a highpass filter on each channel; phase reverse for the channel mic preamps; a library of professionally crafted presets; and the ability to save and selectively recall processor settings. A stereo, 31-band graphic EQ sits on the main bus. To top it off, you get two 32-bit delay/reverb effects processors, each with its own dedicated mix bus and a library of useful effects presets.

Superior Sound

Connect a StudioLive 16.0.2 mixer and you’ll instantly hear details and clarity you’d expect to find only in a much more expensive console. StudioLive mixers operate at up to 48 kHz for high-definition mixing and recording. High-quality Burr-Brown converters on every input and output provide a best-in-class 118 dB of dynamic range so you’ll catch every high and low with great accuracy and no audible distortion. And our XMAX microphone preamps deliver incredibly high headroom, deep lows, smooth highs, and a rich overall sound.

Recording Is In StudioLive 16.0.2's DNA

The StudioLive 16.0.2’s built-in 16x16 multitrack recording interface is tightly integrated with the rest of the mixer—not an afterthought we tacked on. All 16 channels continuously stream to your FireWire-connected Mac® or Windows® PC. Each channel can independently access its analog input or its dedicated digital return from your computer. And with StudioLive mixers, recording is simple and easy: Just launch the included, preconfigured Capture™ software for one-click recording of all channel inputs and your main mix. Or record with the included Studio One® 3 Artist DAW—or any recording software that supports ASIO or Core Audio. Now you can record in the studio or at the gig with equal ease.

Integrated, Multiplatform Software for Flexible Control and One-Click Recording

Only PreSonus StudioLive mixers are tightly integrated with an entire suite of state-of-the-art software. Mix on a Mac or Windows PC using Virtual StudioLive (VSL). Mix on an iPad® using StudioLive Remote. Control individual monitor mixes onstage with QMix® for iPhone®/iPod® touch. Completely automate virtual soundchecks and record shows with Capture™ for Mac and Windows. Tune your system to the room and watch for problems in your mix with VSL’s integrated Smaart® RTA and spectrograph. Edit, sweeten, and digitally release your recordings with Studio One 3 Artist. StudioLive-series mixers and software work together to form a cohesive ecosystem that helps you achieve your creative vision.

Dedicated Analog Connections for Predictable Signal Flow

Take a look at back panel of a StudioLive 16.0.2 mixer, and you’ll find the robust connections you’d expect from an analog mixer: balanced mic inputs on each of the 8 mono channels; 8 balanced 1/4-inch line inputs; 4 unbalanced RCA line inputs; and dedicated balanced outputs for each of the 4 aux buses and the main stereo bus. Every input channel and bus send has its own dedicated jack—no sharing, no compromises—so you always know what’s flowing from each output.

Add Excitement to Performances with MIDI Control

Being able to control the 16.0.2 from an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch is cool — unless your hands are busy playing your instrument. That’s why the StudioLive 16.0.2 offers something even the bigger StudioLive AI-series consoles don't: MIDI In and Out. Use a MIDI footpedal or DAW to recall scenes using MIDI Program Changes, control the main output volume and effects level, mute effects between songs, switch from lots of reverb to a little bit of delay, and change the mix for a solo. You can even automate these features with a DAW! It’s a great way to make your performances more exciting and varied, even if you don’t have a separate soundperson.
