Built by musicians, for musicians.
StudioLive® AR22 USB 22-channel hybrid mixers make it simple to mix and record live shows, studio productions, band rehearsals, podcasts, and much more. This is a musician’s mixer: lightweight, versatile, feature-rich, and packed with analog connections and digital tools, yet easy to learn and use. Mix with 16 of PreSonus®’ famous Class A preamps and three-band EQ. Create multitrack recordings and fly in backing tracks with a 24-bit, 96 kHz, USB 2.0 digital audio interface. Record and playback in stereo with the integrated SD digital recorder. Stream program music wirelessly, using onboard Bluetooth™. Compact and road-ready, StudioLive AR mixers provide a superior all-in-one solution for mixing and recording your performances.
All of the connections and controls you need.
StudioLive AR22 USB mixers are packed with the connections and controls needed to mix and record live, in the studio, and in rehearsal. Each of the 12 mono channels and four stereo channels includes a 60 mm fader for level control; a mic input with one of PreSonus’ prized Class A preamps; 3-band EQ; and more. Besides the main outputs, you get two monitor mix outputs, each with a dedicated bus, for feeding stage wedges, a headphone amp, or an in-ear system. You also get control-room outputs with level control to feed your studio or front-of-house monitors.
The StudioLive AR22 USB provides a complete solution for mixing and recording, including a flexible array of inputs and outputs. In addition to a 60 mm fader and an XLR mic input with Class A preamp, each of the 12 mono channels and 4 stereo channels gives you a balanced line input, low-cut filter, mute, pan, and solo with prefader listen.
As a result, you can plug in mics, keyboards, and much more with the same types of controls found in larger mixing consoles. Phantom power can be enabled globally for use with condenser microphones; simply switch it off if you want to use dynamic mics.
All mono channels feature three-band, semi-parametric EQ with a sweepable mid band. That gives you enough tone-shaping precision to make each instrument sound its best in the mix. Need more tools? You also get four channel inserts (on Channels 1 through 4) to add external processors.
The four stereo channels (Channels 13/14 through 19/20) provide a mic input for the odd-numbered channel, left and right line inputs, and basic three-band, semi-parametric EQ.
This is just part of the StudioLive AR22 USB’s assortment of connections; as you’ll discover in a moment, this mixer can accept signals from virtually any audio source!
Record in the studio or at the gig—with or without a computer.
Naturally, you want to record your gigs, as well as producing studio projects, podcasts, and so on. It’s smart to record your rehearsals, too. So StudioLive AR mixers offer two different ways to record. Connect a StudioLive AR22 USB mixer to your computer via USB 2.0, and you have a 22x4 multitrack digital recorder, ready to capture all input channels plus the main mix to a Mac or Windows PC with professional, 24-bit/96 kHz quality. An onboard stereo SD recorder lets you record the main mix without a computer—just hit Record and go. Recording can’t get much easier than this!
Sweeten with digital effects for a polished, professional-caliber sound.
To get a great mix, you need high-quality effects. The StudioLive AR22 USB has you covered with an internal stereo effects processor with 16 presets, including an assortment of room, hall, and plate reverbs; chorus and delay effects; even a preset that emulates an acoustically treated studio room to provide a warmer, more intimate tone. A dedicated effects return, complete with master level fader and dedicated monitor sends, lets you adjust the amount of the effects in your main and monitor mixes. You can even bypass the effects with a footswitch (optional). It’s just another way that StudioLive AR mixers enable you to build professional-quality mixes and recordings quickly and easily.
