Hey Guys, I have run across the gain reduction stuck problem. Sometimes I'll unplug the FireWire cable and plug it back in and the problem will be gone for a couple mins. Eventually it comes back. Now it no longer shows the gain reduction all the way up. The sound just stops working when producing. I am sure it's not my computer because before I used to be able to record huge amounts of tracks with no problem. Now as soon as I create a new project it'll work for a couple mins. And then when I am working on it a bit it'll turn off the sound. Also, Studio One itself is picking up the signal because it picks up sound when I hit my keyboard notes into the midi. The meters do move. Usually I'll be playing back what I recorded and the sound will get extremely distorted and I'll hit stop and when i hit play again nothing happens. I am not 100% sure if it's my mixer or studio one. I re-flashed my firmware, updated studio one and everything with no success.
thanks.

PS. The mixer will sometimes work by itself when unplugged.

Update, the mixer started working again but I think it has something to do with it heating too quickly. At the bottom of it to the left it feels really hot within maybe 15 mins of plugging in. I don't know why this is. Also When I use it with StudioOne it often crashes Idk why...

I'm having the same problem. No input and no output, gain reduction fully lit in stand alone or with my mac pro.
I updated all software and firmware with no success.
I've been reading complaints on this website going back to 2010 and everyone did NOT have a post about how to fix the problem.
If someone figured it out PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
I LOST 200 BUCKS Because it went down during a gig and now i'm going to have to pay more money to get the unit fixed!!!

Yeah man, It really sucks. I just don't understand why Presonus would charge everyone to fix a problem they started to begin with. Clearly, there was a problem with the boards when they were manufacturing them. Why should I have to pay for something they messed up. It's ridiculous. It should be clear to everyone on these forums that these boards are not reliable for live use.

I had this, in my case I had the Gate button enabled on one of the channels, causing the meter to be full red.

Just to be "clear" - I've used my 16.4.2 in hundreds of live shows without incident, so mine is very reliable. To say the mixers are unreliable based on a few accounts when there are tens of thousands of mixers out there is really disingenuous.

@JoseDrums. First off, never hot swap the 1394 Firewire plug. Can cause damage. Second, have you logged a tech support ticket with PreSonus? If you have and have not received an answer or solution please PM me the ticket number and I will try to help.

Kind Regards
