Tiny but powerful package for touring band
Bob Wan, 24.08.2018
PROS:
The 1U rack mixer packs 16 XLR inputs and 6 separate output so I can have maximum 6 mixes for IEMs! That's a very decent package for a live band who use IEMs. Now I can just carry a Behringer Ultralink MS800 for vocals to split the signal for the FOH and the IEMs, the PreSonus 16Rs will act as the mixer/recorder and the two Sennheiser EW300 transmitters all fit in a 3U case and you are good to go with a portable stage mixer!

We are a beginner thrash metal band and we are currently not affordable to have a touring engineer with us. So this device is decent enough to cover up all the trouble on the stage. Haven't tried the recording function but I bet it will be hard to use (at least the recording feature is straightforward from the demo video).

CONS:
I have updated the interface to the latest firmware but I always receive a random disconnect from the interface (grey color) on the UC-control. I will need to unplug the ethernet cable and replug it back then the interface will return to operation.

I also try the Qmix UC IOS app and the control is a mess. The dial for each mix doesn't work as expected; I try to adjust the dial of the specified track but once i touch the dial it will max the gain of the track.

Recording use
FrankJN, 11.05.2018
Bought this to be mainly to use as an audio interface for recording drums at a home studio. Set up was easy enough. Register online with mypresonus. Download/install the digital mixer software Universal Control. Install drivers/firmware and you're pretty much good to go.

I have to say there is a stupid bug in the Universal Control application with the resolution which made it difficult to toggle between channels on the mixer or see that there was a digital return channel on it(for sending audio from the pc through the interface). I was in contact with presonus support as a result. They were very helpful and quick response. Was a stupid issue as I was using a laptop which the resolution was 1366 x 768. I had to disable the locked taskbar at the bottom of the screen on Windows 10 and then it was visible.

After all that was sorted seems to be working quite nicely. A decent amount of FX in the mixer(EQ, Compression, limiter, Gate). You also get a daw Studio One Artist for free as well as a few plugins and a quck capture recording software.

So far I'm pretty happy with the purchase!

Gute Investition
dutpoet, 02.11.2020
Meine Bestellung liegt nun etwa 2 Jahre zurück und in dieser Zeit habe ich sowohl das SL 16R als auch das Unternehmen PreSonus schätzen, ja vielleicht sogar lieben gelernt. Die Pre-Amps halten was sie versprechen und rauschen erst bei sehr starker Verstärkung und dann in verkraftbarem Ausmaß. Der Kopfhörerpoti stellt die einzige Stellschraube und neben dem Mute-Button und dem On/Off-Schalter den einzigen Berührungspunkt mit dem Gerät dar. PreSonus war deshalb so clever und hat diesen eine hochwertige Haptik verpasst. Auch die Erwartung an hochwertige Buchsen wurde erfüllt. Die GUI ist aufgeräumt, steht allerdings im Schatten der mittlerweile etablierten hauseigenen DAW Studio One. Im Livebetrieb habe ich keine Erfahrungen mit dem Produkt machen können und nutze die GUI daher nur sporadisch, denn die Integration mit Studio One ist wie bei anderen PreSonus-Produkten sehr gelungen. Und auch die Texter des User Manuals muss ich sehr loben. Ich bin sehr lesefaul und doch kann ich mich noch heute an die positive Erfahrung erinnern, das Handbuch gelesen zu haben. Über die platzsparende Bauweise eines Rackmixers muss ich hier sicherlich nicht schreiben. Es bleibt also nur noch einmal hervorzuheben, dass ich durch diesen Mixer auf Studio One gestoßen bin, worüber ich außerordentlich froh bin!

Belle machine mais un peu déçu sur l'ensemble
s-m-l, 23.12.2020
J'ai acheté cette machine au départ, pour l'utiliser comme stage box plateau en home studio, raccordée à une SL32S ().

J'ai longuement hésité avec les stages boxes dédiées ( et/ou ).

Ce qui m'a décidé, c'est que j'imaginais pouvoir piloter cette machine de manière autonome, comme je le fais avec mes consoles Soundcraft ( ou ), et qu'elle puisse donc accessoirement me servir en live en cas de dates multiples.

Et bien non, PreSonus est un monde à part et cette machine qui sonne super bien et qui est de très belle facture, ne sais pas faire des choses aussi basiques que lire une carte avec des fichiers audio pour envoyer de la musique d'ambiance ou régler une façade. (et je parle de Wav 16bits, le reste on oublie). Au surplus, elle ne dispose que de deux bus d'effet contrairement à la concurrence qui en a au moins quatre.

L'application de contrôle est beaucoup moins ergonomique que l'équivalente Soundcraft par exemple (qui est multi-plateforme en prime)

Alors je suis comme un type qui a acheté une Rolls à qui on dit qu'il n'est pas possible d'installer un téléphone ou un GPS, d'où une certaine frustration et un déni total de la part de PreSonus qui est totalement convaincu de ses choix.

Contrairement aux Stages boxes de la marque cette machine ne peut pas être raccordée en cascade sans l'ajout d'un routeur spécifique assez cher ().

Finalement, pas mal de déceptions, alors que je suis super satisfait de la console SL32S.

Que dire de plus ? (comme dirait Clooney)
