Product information - Presonus StudioLive AR16c

18-channel complete solution for live, rehearsal room and studio recording

The Presonus StudioLive AR16c is a completely analogue 18-channel mixing console with 8 mono and 4 stereo channel strips. Each channel strip has a fader, an overload-proof XMAX mic preamp, a 3-band EQ (1 - 8 with semi-parametric mids) as well as controls for the two aux ways and the internal effects processor (also usable as Aux3!). Each channel can be individually muted or set to PFL (solo). Additionally, Presonus StudioLive AR16c is a Super Channel that can communicate via stereo jack, stereo RCA, USB-C, SD card or Bluetooth. In the master section the effect processor, the two aux channels and the stereo sum can be levelled separately.

In addition, an SD recorder is installed, which can be directly controlled via a pushbutton and can record all individual tracks and the stereo sum. Just like for the internal audio interface, the analog signal is converted with high-resolution 24bit/96kHz.

So if you are looking for a mixing console for rehearsal room or home studio, which can record in high quality and which contains effects at the same time, the Presonus StudioLive AR16c is the perfect choice!
