Stop Buying Coffee Mugs for Your Church!

“If this is your first time visiting our church, fill out the connect card and bring it to the connect centre to exchange it for a free gift at the end of the service.” How many times have you gone to a church and heard a statement similar to that?

Behringer X32 vs PreSonus StudioLive Series III 32 Channel

Edit Oct 18 (again) I just want to point out that I am not a professional, and this is definitely a biased article towards PreSonus.

Ive done my best to correct factual errors, but please don’t take this as Gods Golden Truth, this is simply my experiences with the two boards and how I think PreSonus is poised to become the new industry standard with this board (in this price range) unless Behringer can respond accordingly. If you want more detailed information on the boards I would encourage you to check the respective websites. Also I did not go into much depth with the DAW functionality…
