PreSonus has followed its StudioLive RM16AI and RM32AI 32x16x3, rackmount Active Integration digital mixers with two new StudioLive RML-series models offering line-level inputs, in addition to the XLR mic inputs found in the RM series.

Designed for live-sound mixing and studio recording, the StudioLive RML16AI and RML32AI provide 32 internal channels and 25 buses, a 52x34 FireWire 800 recording interface, AVB Ethernet networking, and Fat Channel processing on all input channels and all buses, including a 4-band parametric EQ, compressor, gate and limiter.

The mixers can be controlled with UC Surface touch-control software for Mac, Windows and iPad. Alternatively, the StudioLive CS18AI AVB control surface provides motorised faders.

Using AVB Ethernet networking, two StudioLive RML and RM can be cascaded mixers to create larger mixing systems – a 16-input mixer with a 32-input mixer will rpovide a 48-channel mixing system, or two 32-input mixers a 64-channel system. Both mixers in the expanded systems can be controlled from a StudioLive CS18AI, from UC Surface, and from Studio One.

A Stage Box mode lets you use StudioLive RML mixers as remote I/O devices in conjunction with StudioLive AI-series consoles. You can use the RML as simple I/O, bypassing the internal mixer, or as a monitor mixer and remote I/O.

In addition to UC Surface touch control software, the rackmount mixers come with integrated Capture recording software for Mac and Windows, with true Virtual Soundcheck mode; and Studio One 3 Artist DAW for Mac and Windows. PreSonus’ free QMix-AI aux-mix control software for iPhone/iPod touch enables musicians to control their own monitor mixes.

The 3U-high rackmount RML16AI provides eight locking XLR mic inputs and eight combo locking XLR/TRS line inputs, each with a recallable XMax class-A preamp, as well as eight XLR line outs and three main outs (left, right, and mono/centre). Similarly, the 4U-high RML32AI offers 24 locking XLR mic inputs and eight combo locking XLR/TRS line inputs, 16 XLR line outs and main outs.

Other features include front-panel input signal-present and clip LEDs for monitoring levels and rear-panel mirror of the line outputs on a DB25 connector for connecting to wireless in-ear systems. The rear panel contains an option slot that comes with two FireWire 800 ports, an AVB Ethernet networking port, and SPDIF I/O. Alternatively, the slot can accept an optional Dante card.

‘With the  StudioLive RML mixers’ line inputs, you have more flexibility both in the studio and on the stage,’ says PreSonus Senior Product Manager, Ray Tantzen. ‘With 96kHz, Burr-Brown converters and integrated preamp and Fat Channel control from Studio One 3.2, RML mixers make great audio interfaces, in addition to unrivaled mixers.’
