You’ve probably heard the news already, as there was a buzz about this mixer just before MESSE, but here’s the StudioLive in the flesh. This (as far as I’m aware) makes full usage of the DICE II Firewire chip which has higher IO capabilities than most of the chips used in many Firewire interfaces – See more on the DICE II Chip below.
    Main Features
  • 16 inputs, 6 auxiliary mixes, 4 subgroups
  • 16 class A XMAX microphone preamplifiers
  • Hi-Definition analogue to digital converters (118dB dynamic range)
  • Unlimited headroom 32-bit floating point digital mixing and effects processing
  • 22x18 FireWire digital recording interface
  • Compact 19" rack-mountable rugged steel chassis
  • Fat Channel Select: High Pass Filter, Compressor, Limiter, Gate, 4-band semi parametric EQ, Pan, Load/Save/Copy/Paste
  • 2 Master DSP Effects (reverbs, delays, time-based effect, with load/save)
  • Load/Save Mixer "Scenes" - all settings
  • 100mm long throw faders
  • Military grade quick touch push buttons
  • Fast-acting LED meters
  • Talkback communication system
  • StudioLive multi-track recording software
Expected to land later this year with a price somewhere under $2k – which as Rick says, when you consider the cost of a decent 8 channel AD/DA – is a steal.
