Not every club or venue has an ideal mix position. Most of time, the sound guy is shoved in a corner or up in a balcony as an afterthought, not as a primary concern. The StudioLive RM16AI solves this by making the mixing position unattached the hardware. But more than that, now you don't have to worry that someone may mess with the mixer while you're mixing remotely. The mixer has no physical controls and is controlled 100% by the device you're using remotely. Now with just some simple wireless networking equipment, you can mix from anywhere in the venue with your Mac, PC, or iPad. Or perhaps you do have the perfect mixing location and you want to use a touchscreen to mix rather than a physical surface. You can do both with the RM16AI. The new Presonus UC-Surface software makes mixing easy and intuitive and all completely wireless.
The new UC Surface software included with the RM16AI makes mixing easy. Everything is laid out in a friendly, intuitive, and easy to navigate user interface. All settings, gain controls, and routing is recallable at the touch of a button. Everything from faders to EQ and dynamics controls are very straight forward and easy to understand. What's more, the software is exactly the same no matter what platform you're using. The interface is especially fun to use with a touchscreen system like an iPad or Windows 8 touchscreen computer.
The RM16AI features an excellent assortment of I/O. All inputs are standard XLR with Presonus XMAX preamps. Main, Mono, and Mix outputs are all standard balanced XLR as well. The RM16AI also features an Aux/Tape RCA input, hardwired ethernet networking port and digital S/PDIF output as well.
