16.4.2 » 16.4.2 Freezing up » Go to message
I did a search on google about the 16.4.2 freezing up and the first thread was from 2010. Three pages worth of problems with no solution. Here I have a board built in 2013 and have the current firemware into a really good Lenovo laptop. Same problem, worked two days then froze up. -- The upper right hand corner of the board has 7 light panels. The Second GR is red all the way down. No sound going in or coming out of the board. I have placed a ticket with one response that was of no help.
I have tried everything - reboot, return to factory presets, re-install firmware, start the mixer first the the computer, stood on my head and whistle Dixie. Nothing, nada.

I am totally disappointed in Presonus. They make a good product that dies and can't be brought back to life. After 3 years the same issue exist that should have been fixed a long time ago.

How do you get them to answer a request? I live in Baton Rouge. I know where there office is... Me thinks a trip there may be the answer or at least a beginning,

Any other ideas?

Nothing but problems. All of them fixable once I get the correct information. I have walked into my studio for several nights and tried to ignore the mixer because every time I try to do something... like listen to iTunes to play along with a song.. I get grief.. no sound, just grief. I must be too ADD to sit for six hours and read the manual and the tow Power Tools books my sons gave me for Father's Day. Ok, it will take more than 6 hours.. probably closer to 12..
All to use a freaking mixer...
Everything works tonight for the second night in a row.... Will try to record a little guitar... nothing fancy.. last time I tried it was a 3 hour ordeal that ended up on the cutting room floor... DAW was (Studio One) was acting really weird...

Here we go..

Good morning,
First off - a big shout out the folks on this list that have helped me with learning the Presonus tools. Then an equal Shout Out to Presonus for creating great gear and software.

Now the problem. I set everything up to record last night - SL 16.4.2 into Lenovo Laptop with FW 400 express card. Studio One Artist (latest updates installed). New Song - empty song - Add track - assign to input 7 (Guitar 1 on SL) - arm for recording. Channel 7 assigned to SUB 2. Sub 2 active as well as Main.
Good signal from SM 57 in front of Peavey Classic 30 combo - mic cable direct to channel 7. All is good.
Hit record - started playing - "The Weight" on Deluxe Strat mid-switch - clean. All is well.
Hit playback and this thin, awful, distorted sound comes out.
Stop recording... check song set up.. unchecked multiprocessor. All looks good.. Same settings as the night before with clean results.
Shut everything down and restart.. no signal from Guitar amp to SL or Studio One.
No can record.. It's late, I'm frustrated... try everything again. No dice. no record.
Shut down computer (unplug power) shut off SL and Power amp... everything is off and cooling down.

This has happened before.. My buddy (computer tech) and I have never found the correlation between a loss of signal, crappy sound and settings.

any ideas what I did wrong?

thanks,
Robert

Ok then, You have blown by this 61 year old who has for the first time fooled with a digital mixer.
UC = universal control
FW = Fire Wire
etc.
Assigning tabs to subs/mains... really?
I can barley get this thing to turn on and I'm still trying to figure out all the subs, FW, Fat channel, assignments, and all the other stuff on this mixer can do. The manual is written by people who have no idea how to talk to people like me who have dealt with analog all their lives.

Control room outs to my studio my studio monitors... I tried that without any luck. i was happy just to get any sound from anywhere.
sheeesh... I'm lost like a Fa..t in a windstorm and can't grab my butt with both hands.
I'm with Joe Walsh --- I'm an analog man living in a digital world and paddling as fast as I can.

Thanks for the tips, I think...

I need to play back music, you tube video etc through my studiolive 16.4.2.
With the audiobox and the predecessor I could do this..
It does not seem to work with the SL .

What buttons to press, lights to light up etc?

I re-updated the firmware. Uninstalled everything and re-installed every thing.
Presets are gone.
Still on FX no matter what I try - no reverb, ping pong, nothing.
I'll post a ticket and see if someone from Presonus can help me on Monday.

StudioLive General Discussion » Routing sound to the control room » Go to message
I have a good set of studio monitors and would like the option of routing sound from the 16.4.2 to the monitors. I have already connected the monitors via 1/4" cables to the SL 16. but still no sound....
I'm new at this and have a lot of questions.

StudioLive General Discussion » All presets gone after updating firmware. Now what » Go to message
All of my FX presets are gone after updating the firmware. I did not know about having to back them up or saving them before updating firmware. What's done is done....
Now then, is there anywhere I can download a bunch of presents... Acoustic with Pick, Ping Pong, Acoustics with finger style, male vocals 1, 2, and 3, etc.

Thanks,

StudioLive General Discussion » Effects gone after firmware update » Go to message
Thank you for the tips.
I'll delve into all of the options tomorrow when I have the day off. Yesterday and today are long work hours - no time for fun.

The StudioLive is my first encounter with a digital mixer and I must admit I was overwhelmed when I pulled it out of the box. This will be a project for the next few weeks.
My first impression was great - it is much better than my old analog mixer in many ways.

Looking forward to the learning curve.

thanks,

Ok,
Hit select on the A FX channel.
The Main button was dark... Is that the what you mean?
StudioLive General Discussion » Effects gone after firmware update » Go to message
I got a gently used StudioLive 16.4.2 yesterday afternoon. Plugged in powered up - all is good. My buddy and I play around with a lot of effects and have everything figured out.
Then i update the firmware and now... the effects - specifically - reverb, delay, slap back, ping pong everything dialed into the FA channel from the LCD screen quit working. No reverb, no delay, no slap back.. you get the picture.
We spent an hour trying to figure out what went wrong.

Can anyone help??

thanks..
New user and frustrated..

Good evening,
I got the StudioLive 16.4.2 yesterday and I am blown away. My buddy and I spent 4+ hours last night trying to get everything working.
A few issues arose but I'll post them on the other forum.
