Record 32 Channels with New Capture 1.1 for StudioLive

Brandon Drury —  December 6, 2009

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, January 9, 2009 – Anyone who has recorded a show using the PreSonus StudioLive 16.4.2 digital mixer knows that the bundled PreSonus Capture is the easiest-to-use recording software on the planet. Not content to rest on their laurels, our software development team has significantly enhanced Capture’s features in version 1.1.

One of the benefits of the StudioLive 16.4.2 mixer is the ability to daisy-chain two mixers and record their channel outputs via FireWire. Capture 1.1 supports this feature by automatically detecting the number of available inputs, so that when two StudioLive 16.4.2 mixers are daisy-chained, you can record all 32 input channels plus two assignable channels, such as subgroups or the main L/R outputs.

Capture 1.1 also enables you to stereo link channels so you can record interleaved stereo files from linked channels on the StudioLive mixer. Vertical scrolling has been added, and you can resize tracks, just as you can in PreSonus’ Studio One DAW software.

This is a free upgrade for all registered StudioLive 16.4.2 owners. You can upgrade online at

  1. I am trying to use capture to record my band but after about ten minutes the signal from the tracks drop out during recording. I have downloaded it a few times to try to correct the problem. Can you make a suggestion.
    Do I have to stop the recording after each song?
    How can I pause in between songs if I want to.
    I am recording from my mixer directly to my laptop

    Please help
