Baton Rouge, LA (May 26, 2009)—PreSonus has released firmware version 1.11 for its StudioLive 16.4.2 mixer. The new firmware adds new features and improvements and is recommended for all StudioLive users.
One new feature allows users to use the mixer’s FireWire ports to daisy-chain two StudioLive mixers for 32 channels of recording or to combine up to four StudioLive mixers for 64 channels in live performance, with sample-accurate synchronization between units.
The update also adds a 31-band graphic EQ on the StudioLive’s main output. New Save and Load pages enable users to manage the EQ presets. A new Recall mode allows recall of fader settings without recalling the master section controls or aux outputs, and the auxiliary outputs now mute when the channel mute button is pushed. The auxiliary meters are now post-output level and post-Talkback circuit.
Firmware version 1.11 is packaged in one installer, along with a new 64-bit-compatible FireWire driver and Universal Control software update for all PreSonus FireWire products. With Universal Control, any FireStudio-series interface can be daisy-chained with a StudioLive 16.4.2, integrating the units and allowing software control over the FireStudio-series’ internal mixers. This installer will be part of the PreSonus open-beta program and is available on the PreSonus website.
