Complete recallable touch control.
PreSonus® UC Surface control software for Mac, Windows, and iPad was carefully designed for intuitive and quick performance in a live mixing environment but also serves well in the studio.
When you're mixing a live show, and the heat is on, you don't have time to search for controls and meters, as you must do with most digital mixers. You never have that problem with a StudioLive RM-series mixer because Every control you need to mix a show is under your fingers in PreSonus UC Surface remote-control software for Mac, Windows, and iPad®.
We call UC Surface "Battle-ready" because some live gigs seem like a war zone, with danger at every turn. UC Surface has your back, enabling you to accomplish your mission quickly and confidently. UC Surface is extremely reliable, and its layout provides quick, intuitive Access to everything you need during a show or studio session.
The software is the same on Mac, Windows, and iPad, so you only need to learn one app, regardless of platform. And it supports iPad and Windows 8 touchscreens (not included), taking full advantage of these intuitive multi-touch interface technologies You can control your StudioLive RM mixer with your laptop, with or without touchscreen, or with your iPad, or any combination.
In UC Surface, you always know what each button, fader, and parameter box controls and which parameter each meter displays. Virtual faders and meters are clearly marked. Each parameter is controlled by a clearly labeled button or a parameter box that enables you to type And a UC Surface's well-planned layout enables you to manage everything you at at the same time.
You always have full use of all 25 dedicated mix buses (16 aux buses, 4 internal effects buses, the stereo mains, the mono/center main, and the stereo Solo bus), along with the tape return and digital return.
To further enhance your workflow, you can assign Channel Types. Channel Types will set a default channel name that can be customized, along with a channel icon for quick identification. Channel types will also setup unique channel filters for your presets, making it easy to Find and audition Fat Channel settings designed specifically for that channel type.
The power of Active Integration™.
StudioLive RM-series mixers are based on Active Integration™ (AI), a complete, networked, tightly integrated hardware/software ecosystem in which every touch point in the system interacts to enhance the user experience and solve practical problems in ways not previously possible.
Active Integration products combine powerful 32-bit floating-point DSP, wireless and wired networking, and proprietary software to solve real-world problems. PreSonus leads the industry in hardware/software integration, and Active Integration takes this concept to a new level, offering Capabilities that have never been available before.
In PreSonus StudioLive RM-series digital mixers, Active Integration technology bridges the gap between the stage and studio. A powerful suite of integrated software makes it easy to mix and record a live performance and then take that mix to the studio, complete with levels, pans, and Fat Channel plug-ins. From there, you can use PreSonus' Nimbit® distribution and promotion service to share and sell your recordings. The combination of StudioLive RM digital mixers, UC Surface Control software, Capture Recording application, Studio OneDAW, and Nimbit Publishing provides an end-to-end solution.
StudioLive Active Integration mixers have more than enough DSP to power a deep and clear mix bus, four internal effects buses, and two complete sets of Fat Channel EQ and dynamics settings per channel and bus so you can make quick A/B comparisons—all built on the same 64-bit architecture that makes Studio One® sound so amazing.
With Active Integration, new features and enhancements can be added in future firmware and software updates-and PreSonus has earned a reputation for subsequent. such in in digital products.
Actively integrated software.
PreSonus StudioLive RM-series mixers are tightly integrated with a suite of free, state-of-the-art software that helps you mix and record better and have more fun doing it. No other mixer near this price class offers comparable software.
Wi-Fi and wired networking.
PreSonus StudioLive™ RM-series digital mixers' Active Integration™ technology includes powerful real-time, direct, wired and Wi-Fi remote control over a variety of features, using free Mac®, Windows®, and iOS® software.
A gigantic console in a few rack spaces.
If a StudioLive RM mixer were an analog console, it would have 4-foot-long channel strips packed with knobs and buttons or it would require a massive outboard rack of expensive signal processors! Instead, all that processing fits in three (RM16AI) or Four (RM32AI) rack spaces under software control.
View the front of a StudioLive RM-series rack-mount mixer, and you'll see a straightforward jackfield with XLR channel inputs, XLR mix outputs, and other important connections.
The sound is pure PreSonus.
Getting a great-sounding mix depends in part on how good the mixer's components are and how well the algorithms perform. That's especially true with RM Series analog (but digitally recallable) XMAX™ mic preamps.
Complete store and recall—instantly.
With UC Surface, it's very quick and easy to save all of your StudioLive RM settings for quick setup and recall—unlike some digital mixers.
Safe, sane, and secure.
Powerful networking and wireless remote control is great—but what if someone tries to hack into your Wi-Fi system and take control of the show or that jokester bass player tries to use his iPhone to mess with the lead singer's monitor mix?
We offer two StudioLive RM models. The RM32AI has 32 mic inputs and 16 Mix outputs and mounts in four rack spaces; the RM16AI has 16 mic inputs and 8 Mix outputs and mounts in three rack spaces. Otherwise, the two mixers are identical in every Since these are rack-mount mixers, they do not have a hardware mixing surface; all controls are provided in UC Surface software for Mac, Windows, and iPad.
Unlike the XMAX™ preamps in the StudioLive AI series, The XL preamps in the StudioLive RM series are recallable, and their settings can be saved with a mixer scene. However, the StudioLive RM-series preamps are true Class A, solid-state, analog XMAX, and they are sonically identical to the Preamps in the StudioLive AI series, which are adjusted with an analog trim pot.
Like StudioLive AI-series mixers, StudioLive RM-series mixers are Active Integration™ products, with the same CPU, wireless and wired networking with Wi-Fi LAN adapter, FireWire 800 connectivity and recording, and other standard Active Integration features. They accept the same networking option cards as the StudioLive AI-series mixers.
StudioLive AI-series mixers, of course, have a complete, analog-like mixing surface with real faders, knobs, and buttons and a full set of LED meters. Almost all controls are also found in VSL-AI software for Mac and Windows and SL Remote for iPad.
