Presonus StudioLive Rebates - save $200-500
Which digital mixer to recommend is a hot topic of discussion around the office.
Thankfully, there is no way to be right in a definitive sense, since the use of audio gear is at least somewhat subjective. We're allowed to have preferences and biases, and habits, and it's okay. So which digital mixer is best for you?
That's more of a question than this article is equipped to answer, but since Presonus is offering $200-500 savings through the end of August, we thought that you'd like to know what we like about it.
One of our guys uses a StudioLive 24.4.2 weekly at church and one uses a Behringer X32. Let's talk about Presonus for now.
An advantage to the Presonus is that it operates in one layer. There are not multiple banks of faders with each serving difference purposes. In this regard, #1 fader is the #1 fader is the #1 fader. It's not the pastor's fader on one layer, the bass drum on another, the main output level control for a monitor mix on a third, and you get my drift. Layers allow a console to have more function in less space, but mixing in layers or banks can be confusing. Anyone who has ever mixed on a console with layers has adjusted something that he or she didn't intend to adjust. We like the simplicity of the Presonus StudioLive for that reason. One fader per input - period.
Add to that the ability to set up each channel for two purposes. On setting "A", microphone #1 can be the announcement microphone, and on setting "B", microphone #1 can be used by a a solo vocalist with a different equalization, and control. That might offer some level of additional complexity, but allowing the sound tech to push a simple A/B switch to go from announcements to a vocalist is a feature that we like.
The Presonus StudioLive also offers a suite a SMAART sound system optimization tools, feedback control, iPad and iPhone control, one-click multi-track recording, and integration with Nimbit to instantly upload sermons for immediate distribution on your church's free Nimbit store.
For mixing, recording, and producing your weekend services and events, the Presonus StudioLive is a powerful, straightforward tool for the job. Please call us for more information and questions, or click here. And save up to $500 through the end of August 2014!
