  • Just scored a used Presonus 16.4.2.

    Now I just need to learn how to use it. I didn't get an owners manual and I'm not the most computer savvy guy so I may have some questions over the next few weeks. I spent about a half an hour messing around with it and I don't think the learning curve will be too steep.

    Download the owner's manual, it's important.

      Thought you had 2 other mixers ? anyway go sign up over on the Presonus forum
      Use the Presonus pre-sales app they have if your using a PC and Windows OS.
      The app they have, will check for compatibility with the mixer if your not using a their recommended
      Mac Book Pro or Rain Live Book. BTW the Rain is PC Window OS design for specifically DAW application.

          Actually i'm a gear slut. Twostone I have 4 mixers now. i traded a Mackie onyx 1640 in on the Presonus. I also own a soundcraft lx7ii-24 that is my main board right now. i bought a Peavey16 fx that will be used at guest ranch gig this summer and will stay at the ranch. I also have a Peavey PV10 that I use for rehearsals and take as a back-up board to some gigs. I may sell the soundcraft after i get use to the Presonus.

                    Make a print copy of the important sections and use a highlighter to focus on the important stuff.

                    And take notes.

                        Double-check that the metering uses "full scale digital" throughout and there are no swapping around of units, or if there are (in the dynamics section perhaps), it's clearly understood.

                          Well this is the slow time of year for construction work so I should have plenty of time to learn how to use it. Twostone thanks for the you tube link. The mixer came with a skb mixer case with a tray for a lap top.

                            There are tons of videos of the StudioLive on youtube. Before I bought mine, I watched videos everyday for a week. By the time I got mine, I knew a lot about operating it.

                              Yea no probs Presonus suggest you spend a good 40 hours of time on it to learn your way around the mixer.
