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.

Effects you'd expect from a $600 stand-alone processor. Or four.

Two 32-bit stereo effects engines on dedicated buses, loaded with reverbs so rich and detailed that you feel like you're there. Two more with delay effects that you can really use. Use all four without compromising other resources.

Dedicated I/O.

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?

 Which StudioLive RM for You?

That depends on how many inputs and outputs you need. We currently make two models, the StudioLive RM16AI and RM32AI. The only differences are the number of channel inputs and Mix outputs, channel activity LEDs, and DB25 connectors that mirror the Mix outputs. Otherwise, the two models are identical.

 
Specifications

Computer system requirements:

Below are the minimum computer-system requirements for UC Surface.

Apple iPad

  • iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina display, iPad (4th generation), iPad mini, iPad (3rd generation), or iPad 2
  • iOS 7.03 or later

Mac

  • Mac® OS X 10.8 64-bit or later
  • Intel® Core 2 Duo processor (Intel Core i3 or faster recommended)
  • 4 GB RAM (8 GB or more recommended)

Windows

  • Windows® 7 x64/x86 SP1, Windows 8 x64/x86
  • Intel Core 2 Duo processor (Intel Core i3 or faster recommended)
  • 4 GB RAM (8 GB or more recommended)

Mac and Windows Systems

  • Wired or wireless network connection
  • Internet connection
  • For Capture and Studio One:
    • FireWire S800 (IEEE 1394b) port
    • Internal or external 7200 RPM storage drive highly recommended
    • Monitor with 1280x800 resolution

 

Note that the speed of your processor, amount of RAM and size and speed of your hard drive will greatly affect the overall performance of your recording system. Also, a more powerful system (faster processor with more RAM) will allow for lower latency (signal delay) than you might experience while monitoring audio or MIDI signals.
