  • PreSonus Studiolive

    I went to practice last week, there sitting hooked up, was a new studiolive, the sound guy has been hinting about getting one of these, well the hint is over. Anyway I got on line and read the manual so I could have a heads up on the thing. GOOD LORD!!!!

    Great board. It almost paid for itself (in my case) just with all of the racks it allows me to off-load.

      Did you find the learning curve to be difficult?

        I recently bought one, and the learning curve is fairly low if you are at least familiar with an analog board. You'd be surprised how intuitive it actually is. Don't be intimidated with all the buttons, it'll make sense!

          I'd have to agree with bnelly... the learning curve is not as bad as I thought it might have been. Make sure you read through PreSonus' message board. There are a few things to be prepared for, especially if you plan to use this with a computer. The supplied firewire cable can lead to some surprizes (I found this the hard way). You will do good to throw the supplied one away and get a decent cable.

            I also suggest updating the firmware to the latest revision.

                What? You having a hard time of it? You shouldn't.

                Anyway, you should just let the soundman mess with it. There's no musician items on it anyway. oke:

                        i haven't updated the firmware yet because i've read some nightmare stories over on the presonus boards. I may hazard it this week since we have a 2 weeks off.

                          I love mine too! It gave me some heartburn for a couple gigs as it is way more sensitive to power sags than any of my analog gear. I put an "online UPS" in my rack to power my SL and life has been great since.

                          Great board!

                            I was a bit timid about updating the firmware. My biggest issue was not noticing the Universal Control applet that was running in the system tray. That is where you do the updates.

                            When I opened the UC application, from the start menu, the main window appeared at the same time the tray applet appeared. Therefore, I never noticed it was there. I only saw a window that said my software was out-of-date. Then, it told me to run the UC program to update it.

                            I was confused because I just ran the UC program to see what I was seeing.

                            Now, if they had said, "Open the UC program in the system tray..." then I would have been fine. I spent a couple hours trying to figure this out. I stumbled on that tray icon the next day.

                            Then, when I ran the installer, it hung during the initial part of the process. I let it sit for about an hour since I was in a meeting, anyway.

                            After an hour, I killed the process, restarted the laptop and mixer and ran the update, again. It worked perfectly in about 1-2 minutes.

                            The updater fixes some bugs, but the main feature I wanted was the new low-cut filter on the AUX sends.

                              BUT my UC isn't loading up correctly for some reason. So I can't run the update check thingy.
