Hands-on Training With The Presonus Studiolive


Last year, our Audio Engineering Department in Fredericton purchased a PreSonus StudioLive 16.4.2 digital mixer and recording interface for their ‘Live Sound Reinforcement’ class.  StudioLive mixers have become the industry standard for live sound engineers since it allows them to record and mix performances at the same time.  The StudioLive 16.4.2 has a plethora of programmable high-end effects and rich sounding preamps that brings the studio environment into a live concert setting.

Being an audio engineering and production school, it is essential for us to have our students trained on state-of-the-art equipment.  Bringing studio production to live concerts has become standard practice within the industry and will continue to be more prevalent with technological advancements in Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) and hardware. Our graduates are well versed in both the recording arts and live sound, allowing them to work within such industries as live sound reinforcement, studio production, and electronic music production, as well as post production for TV, film, and video games.
