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.

More powerful touch control than the competition
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). It lets you take advantage of large-format Windows 8 touch computers. And it gives you the big-mixer power of Filter DCAs.

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 plus built-in AVB
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. Plus you can take advantage of industry-standard AVB and Dante protocols.

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.

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.
