Operating this digital mixer could be tricky at first view, but next moment you get familiar with it you will discover qualities that could be find in much more expensive stuff. Tutorials are quite helpful.
Pro: best fat channel so far
multitrack recorder on SD is a big step
matrix, very useful
partial integration with Pro One (free to download)
Contra: saving on SD,and on Pro one got different extension: to SD is *.scene, which is bad (transphere can't be done) if you want to move a mtr rec from PC to SD, integration not realised yet
Solving this problem could be very useful for a lot o reasons, not only in studio aplication, but also in LIVE situation when you are forced to use backing tracks, and you ain't got any other multitrack around.
Best money can buy at this level.

A superpult at a fair price

Holbi, 26.05.2017
When I came to the Presonus homepage by chance (October 2016) the Presonus III was announced, with 32 motor channels for the inputs and 34 channel recording on SD card, Bluetooth reception on the tape input and still some functions not included in the Behringer X32. The silver design and the buttons, which can be represented in 12 colors, were also not without influence, this desk is preferable to the black Behringer X32.

In April 2017 I finally ordered the console and am thrilled. What I especially like: After the channels are labeled, a channel can be copied with 2 x to another layer. First select the channel with "Select", then tap on the new channel on the display. If two channels are used as stereo channels, they can be grouped into one channel.

Everything that can be done on the desk can also be operated via PC or Ipad. The Aux routes can be controlled by smartphone with an Android or Iphone app. There are some software delivered with the console like Capture2 for a 34 track recording on the PC / Mac, Universal Control for controlling via PC / Mac and Studio One Professional for editing the recordings. The quality of the recordings of the individual channels are by the way the finest.

The entire memory can be stored on the desk, or on the PC / Mac. The firmware can be easily updated from the PC via Wlan or USB, or via the desk directly to the SD card.

At the beginning there were problems with the storage of the settings. This was due to the faulty operating instructions, which has now been changed. The last update also prevented, for example, an accidental deletion of a setting by an additional query. The Presonus team in the USA reacted in a short time to customer requirements.

The purchase of the desk is linked to the creation of an account on the Presonus homepage, which can then be downloaded free of charge software, or can be asked questions.
