PreSonus' latest -- the 16.0.2 -- is the most compact and portable (rack-mountable) StudioLive digital recording and performance mixer yet, specifically designed for small bands, personal studios, small/mid-sized clubs and houses-of-worship, etc. If you don’t need advanced features such as mixer subgroups and channel inserts, but do need all the other great features of StudioLive, this is the one for you.

The 16.0.2 offers the same quality levels as the two larger StudioLive models with high-headroom, 32-bit floating-point processing; XMAX mic preamps; and 24-bit, 48 kHz digital converters with 118 dB dynamic range. The new mixer also sports a pair of programmable, stereo, 32-bit floating-point effects processors, loaded with reverb and delay presets and assigned to dedicated FX buses. Like the 16.4.2, the StudioLive 16.0.2 provides 16 input channels and an integrated FireWire interface, is designed for both studio recording and live sound, and comes with a tightly integrated software suite. The 16.0.2 also presents the same friendly user interface and the same high-grade components as its two big siblings. But unlike the StudioLive 16.4.2 and 24.4.2, the StudioLive 16.0.2 has MIDI input and output, providing MIDI control over key mixer parameters.
