PRESONUS: MOVING FADERS!

Traditionalists might well be shaking their heads: what’s the best accessory for the latest rackmount digital mixer?  Knobs and faders. Introducing the StudioLive CS18AI mix controller from PreSonus. It’s a control surface for StudioLive RM-series rackmount, Active Integration digital mixers and PreSonus’ Studio One DAW. Networking with StudioLive RM32AI and RM16AI mixers via AVB Ethernet and PreSonus UCNET technology, the StudioLive CS18AI offers touch-sensitive motorised faders (a first for Presonus’ mixers) and enables complete hardware control of all mixer features, managing up to 64 channels. The new controller also makes it even easier to do virtual soundcheck, live recording, and studio mixdown with PreSonus’ Studio One DAW and Capture recording software. PreSonus Senior Product Manager Ray Tantzen makes some sense of the apparent paradox of optioning-up your rackmount mixer with a controller. “With a StudioLive RM as the mix core, you can choose to work with physical motorised faders, portable wireless iPad, a large Windows 8 touchscreen, or a combination of them all.”

The 19-inch, rack-mountable StudioLive CS18AI has the same footprint as a StudioLive 16.4.2AI console and features a 16-channel scribble-strip display and a 4.3-inch colour touchscreen. Available in June for around US$2000.
