Presonus adds to its mixer offerings with Series III of the StudioLive rackable mixers, 32R and 24R. They can serve multiple purposes, functioning as AVB stage boxes, combination stage boxes and monitor mixers, or standalone mixers. Remote-controlled XMAX preamps and full recall on all models make the Series III rack mixers ideal as a stage-located I/O box when paired with control via a StudioLive desk.
StudioLive Series III rack mixers deliver true studio quality sound with a plug-in-style workflow that features vintage-style EQ and compression options on every channel, from classic tube limiters to passive EQs. These offerings were meticulously created in-house with state space modelling circuit emulation technology to match the sounds of real analog outboard gear.
Scenes can be customised, including a Scene Safe feature that prevents a scene change from altering the settings on designated ‘safe’ channels. Fat Channel presets are now saved in the same was as scenes for individual channels, not only saving input and Fat Channel settings but also aux send and bus assignments. You can also use preset filters to choose what you want to recall.
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 10 mix buses. The StudioLive 32R and 24R have 24 Filter DCAs for easily controlling groups of channels; the 16R offers eight Filter DCAs.
