The Presonus Studiolive 16 III is the latest incarnation of the world's leading digital mixer. The most powerful 24-input digital console/recorder in its class, with motorized faders and an advanced integrated multitrack recording system. All without the need of a computer or laptop!

Digital Mixing - Redefined

This third-generation Presonus StudioLive mixer is fully recallable, with 17 touch-sensitive, motorized faders and 17 recallable XMAX preamps. Yet despite its extensive features, the StudioLive 16 actually improves upon PreSonus' legendary ease of use while letting you customize its workflow and operations.

The StudioLive III sound is better than ever, including all-new Fat Channel processing, re-engineered from the ground up, and vintage-style EQs and compressors. Add built-in AVB networking, onboard multitrack Capture recording to SD Card, and a complete suite of software, and you have a mixing and recording powerhouse that's equally formidable in live and studio applications.

Presonus Studiolive 16 Series 3 Key Features:

  • 16 Channel Digital Mixing Desk
  • 17 Touch-Sensitive, motorized Faders with 1-to-1 workflow

Fat Channel Returns

The StudioLive 16’s Fat Channel has received a major overhaul while continuing to offer digital precision with the heart and soul of analog. The new Fat Channel implements a plug-in-style workflow that features vintage-style EQ and compression options on every channel, from classic tube limiters to passive EQs. And in addition to channel processing, the StudioLive 16 offers 6-band, fully parametric EQ on all mix outputs.

Enjoy extensive, studio-style processing when recording on location or running shows on the road.

Customize your Workflow

StudioLive 16 goes above and beyond in providing ways to customize things to best fit the way you work. Now you can customize your Fat Channel layout, putting the parameters you care about most right at your fingertips.

There are even several workflow options to personalize your mixing experience. For instance, you can control the mixer with a multiple iPads and—optionally—a computer, each running UC Surface with a different view, enabling you to see and touch all of the controls you need at a given time.

New Preset and Scene Flexibility

Studiolive Series III gives you more flexibility when working with scenes and presets. Mixer scenes now include Scene Safe. Similarly, Presonus have expanded the concept of Fat Channel presets so that presets have, for practical purposes, become like scenes for individual channels, not only saving input and Fat Channel settings but also aux send and bus assignments. Of course you can also use preset filters to choose what you want to recall.

Three Year Warranty

Something great to know is that Presonus stand by their build quality and offer a fantastic three year warranty on all Series III and Series III S mixers.

If anything goes wrong with your Presonus StudioLive mixer in the first three years, they'll repair it for you.
