Justin T. Clausen - Grace Church Monterey Bay
We have been using the StudioLive Series III since it was released 2 years ago. I was slow in moving to a digital board in the church environment (we used a large format Crest Audio analog console until purchasing the SLIII) partly because I prefer the analog work surface and much of the talk regarding digital in the church environment was the steep learning curve for less than experienced volunteers particularly when the need to navigate menus for specific functions. And I'm glad I waited. With the efficient space and their use of the FatChannel section, you get a full 32 faders so it has the full analog tactile vibe. This added to the 16 "extra" mixes, makes it a breeze to use. The 16 mixes are essentially 16 buses that can be independently used as AUX sends, submixes, or matrix outs. The odd/even pairs can be stereo links as well.

Even with all the cool little extras (on board 32 track recording via SD card, plugin based "outboard gear" on everything, wifi control via mobile device) the selling point really is how easy it is to do any of this. I have spent no more than 30 minutes training with volunteers with no audio experience to be able to make useful and non-catastrophic changes with confidence and repeatability (and then there's the main benefit of a digital board, RECALL!)

Presonus hit a home run with the SLIII. As we continue to upgrade other pieces, we'll likely stay within the StudioLive eco-system.
