PreSonus seem to have been a little modest telling us about this... (or maybe they were all a little 'over-celebrated' after their MIPA success ;-)
But they've just released the following statement:-
Frankfurt, Germany, April 2012...
It's officially a "threepeat." At this year's Frankfurt Musikmesse, the StudioLive 16.0.2 digital mixer was presented with the Musikmesse International Press Award (MIPA) in the category "Mixing Desk (Project Studio)." PreSonus has won this award in three consecutive years: The StudioLive 16.4.2 won the 2010 MIPA in the same category, and the StudioLive 24.4.2 won it in 2011.

The MIPAs are selected by the editors of more than 100 magazines from all over the world. We are thrilled to get this recognition from such a broad-based group of industry veterans. We thank the editors of the participating publications, the Musikmesse organization, our distributors and dealers, and most of all our customers, whose enthusiasm for the entire StudioLive line has made it immensely successful in every respect.
