Baton Rouge, LA (September 11, 2014)—PreSonus has introduced its StudioLive RM16AI and RM32AI 32x16x3 rack-mount Active Integration digital mixers, which are based on the StudioLive AI-series engine. UC Surface software for Mac, Windows, and iOS controls the mixers, which are designed to be an interface for live mixing or a studio environment.
The 3U rack-mount RM16AI provides 16 locking XLR inputs with recallable XMAX Class A preamps, 8 XLR line outs, and 3 main outs (left, right, and mono/center); 32 internal channels and 25 buses; a 52x34 FireWire 800 recording interface; 96 kHz operation; and extensive signal processing.
The 4U rack-mount RM32AI offers 32 inputs with recallable XMAX preamps and 16 line outputs but otherwise has the same features as the 16-input version. Both mixers offer individual +48V phantom power on all inputs; a +48V Meters button displays phantom-power assignment on the input meter grid.
The RM-series mixers feature direct Wi-Fi and Ethernet networking and Capture recording software with true Virtual Soundcheck mode and Studio One Artist DAW for Mac and Windows. StudioLive RM-series mixers are true Active Integration mixers, with Fat Channel signal processing on all input channels and all buses, including a 4-band parametric EQ, compressor, gate, limiter, and more. However, unlike StudioLive AI mixers, the RM series' recallable XMAX preamps mean that every parameter on the mixer can be saved and recalled.
