Designed to partner StudioLive Series III console/recorders, PreSonus StudioLive Series III rack mixers can serve as simple AVB stageboxes, combination stageboxes and monitor mixers, or as standalone mixers. The StudioLive 32R and StudioLive 24R fit in two 2U-high rack space, while the StudioLive 16R fits into one 1U. All models are fully recallable, including remote-controlled XMax preamps.

PreSonus StudioLive 32RUsing AVB, a StudioLive Series III rack mixer may be linked to a Series III FOH console with a Cat5e or Cat6 Ethernet cable, with provision for remote control of a Series III rack mixer’s preamps and phantom power from a networked Series III console. In stage box/monitor mixer mode, the new rack mixers serve as networked stageboxes and as mixers.

StudioLive Series III rack mixers feature vintage-style EQ and compression options on every channel, from classic tube limiters to passive EQs. Scenes can be extensively customised, including a Scene Safe feature that prevents a scene change from altering the settings on designated ‘safe’ channels. Similarly, Fat Channel presets behave like scenes for individual channels, not only saving input and Fat Channel settings but also aux send and bus assignments.

The two larger models each have 26 mix buses, including 16 FlexMixes, four dedicated subgroups, four internal effects buses/processors, and the stereo main mix bus. The StudioLive 16R has six FlexMixes, two effects buses, and the stereo main bus for a total of ten mix buses. The StudioLive 32R and 24R have 24 Filter DCAs for easily controlling groups of channels; the smaller rack mixer offers eight Filter DCAs.

An AVB Ethernet connection enables networking of compatible computers and streaming of up to 55 (StudioLive 32R and 24R) or 32 (StudioLive 16R) channels of audio to and from a Mac or Windows PC. There is also 40x40 (StudioLive 32R and 24R) or 18x18 (StudioLive 16R) recording via USB 2.0, giving a choice of computer recording methods. Additionally, any Series III rack mixer can capture the main LR mix directly to an onboard SD Card recorder – no computer needed. A separate 1Gb Ethernet port can connect to a wireless router or directly to a computer for remote control of all features via a wired or wireless connection.
