Imy understanding is that 2 16.4.2ai's can't be daisy chained ? but I read that it will be possible in the future can a presonus mediator confirm or coment please . in my case I was able to afford the 16 channel but in the very near future will be needing more channels and don't want to loose money selling an almost new board to trade up to a 24 or 36 channel so adding a 2nd 16 is most economical ! thanks for ant input Dave

EDIT: Nevermind, disregard this message. It is incorrect.

I'm no moderator, but the owner's manual has the information you are looking for.

http://www.presonus.com/uploads/products/1994/downloads/StudioLive2442-1642_OwnersManual_EN3.pdf
Section 5.5: Cascading Mixers:
A StudioLive mixer can be expanded to make a larger console. Two StudioLive 24.4.2s or three StudioLive 16.4.2s can be cascaded together, using a FireWire cable, to create a single 48-channel console. Because of the limitations of FireWire, you cannot connect a computer to either of these configurations; however, you can cascade a FireStudio Mobile or FireStudio Project with a single StudioLive mixer to add more recording inputs.

You can also cascade two StudioLive 16.4.2s to create a 32-channel console with full recording capability, playback, and VSL control.


Be aware that cascading is always more complicated. There are more settings to troubleshoot, and more connections to go bad.

The manual you are refferring to is the old 16.4.2 manual and not the new 16.4.2 AI manual and I just read that now and find no place that mention the possiblity to cascade two 16.4.2 AI' s
Could Mod please step in and clarify if possible or not ?

Here's the AI manual.

Be patient. PreSonus is very tight-lipped about forthcoming features and release dates, but considering the classic StudioLive consoles have this feature, you'd have to assume it's in the pipeline for the AI mixers...
