PreSonus RML32AI front panel
PreSonus in Baton Rouge, La., is now shipping two new StudioLive RML Series models that offer line-level inputs, in addition to the XLR mic inputs found in the company’s RM Series. Otherwise, the new RML Series and the RM Series mixers are identical, with the same recallable XMAX preamps and up to 96kHz operation.
Designed for live-sound mixing and studio recording, StudioLive RML16AI ($1,199.95 MAP) and RML32AI ($1,799 MAP) mixers provide 32 internal channels and 25 buses, a 52x34 FireWire 800 recording interface, AVB Ethernet networking and Fat Channel signal processing on all input channels and all buses, including a 4-band parametric EQ, compressor, gate and limiter.
StudioLive RML are controllable with mixers that have UC Surface touch-control software for Mac, Windows, and iPad, and with the StudioLive CS18AI AVB control surface, which provides motorized faders. Combine hardware and software control to meet your individual needs.

Using AVB Ethernet networking, users can cascade any two StudioLive RML and RM mixers to create larger mixing systems. Combine a 16-input mixer with a 32-input mixer for a 48-channel mixing system or two 32-input mixers for 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, these rackmount mixers come with tightly 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.
