PreSonus StudioLive (Classic) Tutorial507
Learning how to take your new 24.4.2, 16.4.2 or 16.0.2 to the next level has never been easier thanks to the official Presonus StudioLive Mixer Tutorial.
The StudioLive Series has been a runaway hit for Presonus and is one of the market leaders for Live or Studio Mixing for a number of years now.
ProAudioEXP.com's David Wills spends 2 full hours going through every feature of the StudioLive workflow from Input Channels to advanced settings like inserting Graphic EQs on Monitor mixes and everything in between. There's also a section called Mixing 101 where David goes through with easy to understand animations to see how a mixer works and how to use subgroups, EQ, Compression, Effects, Sidechains and Monitor Mixes so you can mix like a pro.
If you have been getting frustrated trying to learn your StudioLive Mixer from just using the manual, then sit down, grab a cup of you favorite beverage and look over the shoulder of a professional audio engineer with 30 years in the business putting your mixer through its paces.
There's also a complete bonus section where you look over David's shoulder as he builds a complete mix before your eyes with picture in picture EQ display.
Please note that while the video was shot around a 24.4.2 mixer, the instruction is equally suited for the 16.4.2 mixer and the 16.0.2 mixer.

Hands on Mixing
If you are struggling with this either getting, or perhaps even using, a Persons SL Mixer, There is a reason you need to have a very close look at this package. Its better than what I have found so far.
I really liked the way traditional mixing information was blended into using my Presonus digital board. The class explained not only how to do things, but why. Giving me a more complete understanding. I also have more faith in using the expertise of my digital board to make a more rounded mix..... I don’t need to have 30 years of experience, I have this class and an awesome Piece of equipment!
David's instructional techniques are by the best in the business. He's made navigating my presonus board a snap
All I can say is OMGoodness!!!!! When I purchased the DVD for the Presonus Studio Live series mixers I had already owned a 24.4.2 for 3 years. My wife purchased it for me as a gift because I fell in love with it upon sight. I was so busy that I never really got the opportunity to REALLY use it. The few times I used it I did an OK job, I felt, even though those in attendance to the shows I did raved about the sound. Finally I knuckled down and purchased the DVD. I kicked myself for not buying when I learned of their existence. David s video gave me all the knowledge I needed to bury the few guys in this area who own one. I hate that the 36.4.2 had already been released by the time I learned to competently use Presonus work horse mixer. If you re THINKING about buying this video stop thinking and do. it will be the best $30.00 you will ever spend. I promise.
