StudioLive RM16 AI - 16-Channel Digital Rack-Mounted Mixer, Presonus

Rack-mount convenience, AI power, and total recall.
Based on the StudioLive™ AI-series mix engine and controlled with battle-ready UC Surface software for Mac®, Windows®, and iOS®, the StudioLive RM32AI and RM16AI 32-channel, 25-bus rack-mount Active Integration™ digital mixers are scalable, compact, and 100 percent recallable.

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.

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.

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.

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.
