In great shape.
You can use this as a live mixer and set it up so you have the option to run it via an ipad if you wanna walk around the venue to mix and not be stuck at the mixing station.
It also doubles as a cool multi-track recording interface for mac and pc computers. You can record the bands while mixing them live for a show, or set up for home studio use and actually mix and eq your recorded tracks with physical knobs, out of the box.
here's the official presonus description:
The PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2AI introduces a paradigm for digital mixing and recording solutions. Retaining the same surface-driven functionality that made StudioLive mixers famous, while adding even more processing power, enhanced workflow features, and Active Integration technology, it provides a networked, tightly integrated hardware/software ecosystem in which every touch point in the system communicates to enhance each mixing task.
The StudioLive 24.4.2AI offers wireless or wired connectivity to any standard router and networks with Macs, PCs, and iOS devices running the StudioLive AI Software Library, which features VSL-AI with Smaart audio analysis, specialized iOS apps, Capture 2.1, and Studio One Artist 2.6 DAW.
The mixer features an extensive analog patch bay for flexible connectivity; a 40x26 FireWire s800 interface for easy recording and virtual soundchecks; optional Thunderbolt, Dante, or AVB for flexible networking; extensive dual signal processing on every channel and bus, with A/B comparison; and 20 dedicated mix buses for easy configuration. Best of all, all controls are one-to-one, so there are no layers to get lost in, and your main mix is always at your fingertips.
- Dual Fat Channel signal processing on all 24 input channels and all buses, with 4-band parametric EQ, compressor, sophisticated gate with Key Listen and Key Filter, limiter with variable threshold, and more lets you A/B two complete Fat Channel settings like having two different Fat Channel settings at once on every channel and bus!
