(4 customer reviews)



Don’t let the classic analog mixer design fool you—the StudioLive AR12c was built to record. Featuring a pristine analog front end with eight high-gain XMAX mic preamps and an 14×4, 24-bit, 96 kHz, USB-C-compatible USB 2. 0 audio interface, the StudioLive AR12c’s hybrid design makes it simple to mix and record. Add in a musical 3-band analog EQ, mic/line boost for low-level sources including vintage synths, all-new digital effects with rich reverbs and lush delays, Bluetooth connectivity, and a stereo SD recorder. . . and you have a mixing and recording powerhouse that fulfills the needs of both modern musicians and content creators.

    Fantastic Mixer From A Generous Company
    I love this product from Presonus. How many times do you feel great about the company you buy a product from? Not all that often. PreSonus just does it all the right way. Besides it being a great mixer for music, Podcasting, anything you want to throw at it, they give you so much free software it is absolutely incredible. They are generous it’s incredibly well priced, and I absolutely love that it is also pretty easy to use. Good tech support when needed too. Great company and a great product.

    Excellent mixer
    I use this mixer to record and edit my own and clients’ podcasts. It works flawlessly. This is my second PreSonus mixer as I upgraded from the AR12 to the AR12c.

    Stay away. Unless you only need for a year… or less
    Presonus sells this mixer with a known power supply issue; makes FX and connecting via usb impossible. My power supply failed after one year during warranty. Just failed again 1 year later. But now with no warranty. Presonus will not give me or sell me the replacement part. I have to pay them to fix. $250 +++. Read the comments here – I’m not the only one. Presonus is a terrible company. Don’t buy this mixer unless you want to pay about $250 yearly… or more after you buy.Stay away!!!

    Extremely poor customer service
    This unit looks like it would be ideal for recording and live sound. Unfortunately it never did work as it was supposed to. It recorded about one quarter of the time. The software (Ampire) has lots of digital patches for guitar effects. Unfortunately they only worked after about an hour on the phone with Sweetwater Music’s tech support.I tried repeatedly to contact Presonus’ customer support but always got a message about extremely high call volumes and COVID 19. Then I was invited to contact them via e-mail. I only received automated responses. Never a human being who might actually been able to help.I finally sent the unit to Asurion . After waiting nearly a month I received a voice mail telling me my equipment was still under factory warranty and was being sent to Presonus. God only knows how long they’ll futz with it.Sorry for a negative review but I am not at all happy with Presonus or Amazon for their handling of this situation.
