But very real. You used to be able to buy a double knob with a bridge between the two just for this purpose. It was called a Mickey knob. And no, I don't know who Mickey is, or was.

Somebody, I dunno who, I lost the thread wrote:

You know that you can link two adjacent channels - works great for me.

Not true - one fader adjusts both channels when they are linked.


Really? Is that on the 16.0.2? I know it's not true on the 16.4.2 unless it's been changed since I had one in my shop. I watched that live video demo of the 16.0.2 and heard something about linked pairs but I didn't catch it. Maybe they actually linked the levels in the new model. Izzat so? I asked about it on the forum but nobody answered.

Hi,

I work with floor monitors and in-ear monitors. For the in-ear mixes I use a Motu 828mk3 soundcard. This way I can make a great personal and stereo mix for up to 4 stereo mixes. To feed the 828mk3 I now use a mixer with pre-outs. The 16.0.2 does not have pre-outs. It does however have a firewire connection. Does anyone now if I can connect my motu firewire to the 16.0.2. firewire and then signal everything through to my computer? I need to be able to:

a: record everything single track from the 16.0.2. with the computer
b: be able to adjust te floor monitors with a ipad
c: be able to make an in-ear mix with my moto 828mk3

If you have a Mac, you can probably create an "aggregate" audio device with both the mixer and 828 connected. The computer will see them as one bigger audio device with all of the outputs available for recording and playback. If you're on Windows, though, there's no such capability.

The two Firewire connectors on the StudioLive will (physically) allow daisy-chaining if your computer doesn't have two Firewire ports, but there must be a computer involved. The 828 and StudioLive won't talk to each other directly without a computer to handle to manage the Firewire protocol.

hi everyone, i'm thinking to buy 16.4.2 to replace my RME Fireface 400 as audio interface. But I wonder if this piece of equipment allows to route software inputs (from DAW and virtual synths) into AUX/Output/Monitor? in RME I have 16 hardware inputs and 16 software that I can route into 4/2 analog and 2x4 digital outputs. thank you.

Perhaps I should refrase my question, cos I think I can output my virtual instruments anyway. So, when assigning output from vurtual instruments to Presonus, has it (interface) shows itself as the output bus (Main/Mon/AUX) or does it allow me to use one of the input bus channels so I can use effects and etc like a normal analog input? Cheers.

This is more of a 1642 specific question. But I'll answer it and then I think I'm gonna lock this thread. So if you have further questions just drop a fresh thread in the StudioLive 16.4.2 group.

The normal op is to send the items to any channel you like and then use the mixer to route it to auxes. It's all still digital and with full Fat channel until it hits to D/A converter on the Aux port. So you basically have everything there to work with in both the channel strip and the FatChannel and equalizers of the Aux you decide to use.

You can't send a signal straight to an Aux. You can however record the Aux if you choose.

Hope that makes sense.
