(Includes 90 day money back guarantee)


The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

PreSonus StudioLive Digital Mixers are redesigned from the ground up. They offer analog workflow with immeasurable dual signal processing on every channel and bus, actively integrated software with the ability to solve real-world problems and enables you to easily record and share what you mix. Configurable networking and communications option cards make sure your investment won't be outdated as new technologies emerge.

Actively integrated software

PreSonus StudioLive AI-series mixers are tightly integrated with a whole suite of free, state-of-the-art software, helping you mix and record easily whilst having an enjoyable experience.

Wi-Fi and wired networking

PreSonus StudioLive AI-series digital mixers' Active Integration technology incorporates powerful real-time, direct, wired and Wi-Fi remote control over a variety of features by using the free Mac, Windows, and iOS software. Unlike previous StudioLive mixers, you no longer need a Mac or PC attached to gain wireless control. All AI-series mixers include a multi-channel recording interface. AI-series mixers are now equipped with a continuously bidirectional FireWire s800 audio interface that is located on an option card, so you can swap it out and use the latest cutting-edge technologies, such as Thunderbolt, Dante, and AVB.

Safe, sane, and secure

Powerful networking and wireless remote control is great - but what if someone tries to hack into your Wi-Fi system? You can prevent this thanks to the StudioLive AI mixer's security features.

A gigantic console in a small package

Each channel and bus has its own studio-grade compressor, limiter, gate/expander, and 4-band parametric equalizer. Each input channel, aux and FX bus also has a highpass filter, and input channels have polarity invert. All of this fits into one impressive processing and routing section known as the Fat Channel.

StudioLive AI mixers are packed with processing power and blazing-fast RAM, allowing you to create two complete sets of EQ and dynamics-processor settings for each channel and bus, making swift A/B comparisons at the touch of the Alt EQ & Dyn button. If your guitar player uses different guitars for songs there's no need to take up two channels, you are able to create two completely different Fat Channel settings for each guitar and access them with the press of a button.
