Remotely control your StudioLive 64S digital mixer's recallable XMAX mic preamps and Fat Channel processing from Studio One Artist. Press the DAW button on your StudioLive 64S digital mixer and use the 33 touch-sensitive motorized faders to control your Studio One mix. Seamless integration and thoughtful bidirectional control with Studio One make the StudioLive 64S the best mixing console for the modern recording studio.
