That's off of the presonus website. We use the exact same setup. It's shown with a MacBook, not a MacBook Pro. We use both when we travel, depending on our other needs. We have a dedicated PC that we built specifically to use with it in our home setup.
The magic's in the Presonus Studio Live mixer, not the computer or the programs. The app and program is proprietary. It allows every setting on the entire board to be controlled wirelessly from an iPad. It also allows each aux mix to be controlled wirelessly from an iPhone or iPod touch.
Every band member has an iPhone or iPod. We connect to the wifi network. We do a front of house sound check, and then each band member adjusts their own aux settings with their phone or iPod. There's not much adjustment from show to show because the tech saves our mixes to a flash stick. We use in ears for the aux mixes and have 2 JBL MPro 16" side fills tied to the front of house mix on either side of the stage.
The mixer is $1900. But it replaces literally everything we had on the racks except the amps. We have no external wideband EQs, effects processing, compressors, limiters, NOTHING. The mixer does it all.
We literally use the mixer, amps, FOH speakers, a wifi router and a conglomeration of apple devices and headphone amps.
