There's a lot more you'll want to know about the StudioLive 24.4.2, though. If you've heard the story on its little brother — the 16-channel StudioLive 16.4.2. — you know that PreSonus designed the StudioLive series to redefine your live mixing experience. In just one package, they managed to put everything a serious live sound engineer just has to have — and that includes first-class effects and processing. You can get your channel settings just the way you like them and instantly recall your settings from show to show. Have to feed in an instrument you don't normally run through your board? No problem. StudioLive 24.4.2 also features built-in presets for a wide range of sources, so you have awesome "launching off" points. If you nail a sound on one channel and want to bring those settings to another channel, it's as easy as copying and pasting — a definite time-saver. Also good to know, if someone accidentally cuts the power while you're tweaking a mix, the StudioLive 24.4.2 has an AutoStore feature that will call back your last settings right when you turn it back on.
