StudioLive RM: Versatile and flexible for live and recorded sound

The heart of the StudioLive AVB 32AI Mix System, the PreSonus StudioLive RM32AI rack-mount Active Integration digital mixer is a versatile and flexible solution for live sound and recording. These versatile 25-bus mixers offer 32 input channels, expandable up to 64 by cascading a second StudioLive RM-series mixer. Each channel can accept a signal from either a dedicated analog input or a digital input via FireWire or AVB. StudioLive RM32AI mixers are flawlessly integrated with state-of-the-art software and boast an integrated 52x34 recording interface, advanced AVB networking, and multiple control options. Yet they’re easy to use, with a workflow that will let you focus on mixing, without being distracted by the technology.

StudioLive CS18AI: Powerful, intuitive network control

Equipped with 100 mm, touch-sensitive, motorized faders and AVB networking, the StudioLive CS18AI control surface provides a compact, intuitive mixing solution for the StudioLive RM32AI rack-mount digital mixers and Studio One® 3 digital audio workstation. The CS18AI connects to the network with a CAT5e or CAT6 Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for cumbersome analog or digital snakes and stage boxes, and offers a host of other useful features. It adds up to a powerful mix control system with a fast, intuitive workflow and the latest networking technology.

Built-in AVB-networked audio.

Through the power and flexibility of AVB audio networking, the StudioLive CS18AI can not only transmit control data but can also send and receive audio channels across long distances. You get two mic/line inputs with PreSonus’ remote-controllable XMAX preamps and two line inputs that you can use as sources for the talkback, 2-track playback, or other sources from front-of-house. The CS18AI’s two TRS line-level returns are shared with the monitor line outputs and headphone output and can be sourced from any RM mixer output, including the solo bus, main mix, or any aux mix.

Integrated, multiplatform software for flexible control and one-click recording.
