PreSonus PRE-SL-AR8C 8-Channel Hybrid Digital/Analogue Mixer USB-C

With its instantly familiar analog mixer design, the PreSonus PRE-SL-AR8C StudioLive® is the easiest way to record podcasts, livestreams, and music productions.

Featuring a pristine analog front end with four high-gain XMAX mic preamps and an 8×4, 24-bit, 96 kHz, USB-C™-compatible USB 2.0 audio interface, the StudioLive AR8c’s hybrid design makes it simple to mix and record.

Add in tools like a musical 3-band analog EQ, mic/line boost for low-level input sources and consumer devices. Utilise Bluetooth® connectivity, a stereo SD recorder, and high-impedance instrument inputs, and you have a broadcasting and recording powerhouse. Above all, PRE-SL-AR8C fulfills the needs of modern musicians and content creators.

The Channel That Does It All

The unique Super Channel makes it easy to connect up to four consumer devices at once. You get RCA inputs, a ⅛-inch stereo input, and a stereo Bluetooth input all at once. Toggle between playback from your computer and the onboard SD recorder to add bumpers and sound effects to your podcast in real time. Also, practice along with your favourite recordings.

Onboard Effects.

The StudioLive AR8c mixer’s onboard effects processor lets you add high-quality reverb, delay, or chorus. Add it to any channel for a professional monitor mix. Like what you hear in your headphones? Record the main mix and capture the effects mix, too—with or without the dry channels—to blend with your multitrack recording. Experiment in post-production to your heart’s content.

One-Click Recording

The StudioLive AR8c is tightly integrated with PreSonus® Capture® live-recording software. Capture is designed to make recording easy by instantly configuring with your mixer and allowing you to record every channel plus the main mix with a single mouse click. Even better, your Capture sessions open natively in Studio One!

World-Class Recording Software Included

Lastly, take your Capture recordings to the next level with Studio One Artist. Open your multitrack sessions natively in Studio One to start mixing! Studio One’s intuitive drag-and-drop workflow makes recording, mixing, and producing fast and fun.
