OVERVIEW

StudioLive power with rackmount convenience.

(Note: The touchscreen device depicted in the image above is not included) The StudioLive design has been bringing superb sound quality, impressive capability and ease-of-use to musicians for five years now. The RM series offers the latest software versions and physical design improvements in a convenient rackmountable package. This is the StudioLive RM32, a 32-channel version of the popular design that might be the perfect mixer for your live and studio applications.

​Like all StudioLive Active Integration mixers, the RM series delivers excellent sound quality, XMAX Class A solid-state preamps, amazing DSP performance, direct Wi-Fi and wired LAN communication, fast and intuitive workflow, an onboard FireWire S800 interface, and a tightly integrated software suite for Mac, Windows, and iOS that creates a streamlined working environment for both live and studio use. The RM32AI has 32 mic inputs and 8 Mix outputs and mounts in three rack spaces.

Effects integration
The StudioLive RM32 features two 32-bit stereo effects engines on dedicated buses, loaded with rich and detailed reverbs. Two more are equipped with practical, usable delay effects. You can even use all four without compromising other resources. Presonus prefers to arm the StudioLive-series mixers with an essential library of serious, down-to-earth reverbs and delays rather than impressive but hardly practical flashy effects presets. Each effects setting is useful, practical, and very rich, thanks to 32-bit floating-point processing and exquisite algorithms. All 50 preset effects have easy-to-use parameter adjustments, tap tempo, store, and recall for ultimate creative flexibility.

Dedicated I/O
View the front of a StudioLive RM-series rack-mount mixer, and you'll see a straightforward jackfield with XLR channel inputs, XLR mix outputs, and other important connections. With a StudioLive RM-series mixer, every channel has an individual analog XLR mic input on the front panel. Every aux mix has a dedicated XLR Mix Output on the front panel, mirrored in DB25 connectors (Mix Outputs 1-8 and, with the RM32AI, 9-16) on the rear. You never have to guess which input feeds which channel or which aux mix goes to an output because they're always the same. Aux Mix 1 goes to Mix Output 1, Aux 2 to Mix Out 2, and so on. It's all part of a design that enables you to work quickly and without confusion.

Software enhancement
Along with the quality hardware and XMAX preamps, you get an impressive array of software suites that integrate your StudioLive with your music:

Capture
Capture is the first digital audio multitrack-recording application designed to make live recording quick and easy. With the look and feel of industry-standard digital multitrack hard-disk recorders, it is instantly familiar to every musician and engineer. Designed exclusively for StudioLive-series mixers, Capture allows instant setup and recording directly from the mixer with no configuration. It's also the only application in its class to offer virtual soundcheck, allowing you to use a previous show or rehearsal recording to perform a nearly complete soundcheck at any venue, even before the band arrives!

Studio One
Studio One is a completely modern professional environment for music recording, mixing, mastering, sharing, and collaboration. It's Internet-savvy and provides a complete solution, from riff to release, combining the features you really need with the ease of use you always dreamed of. Based on an elegant user interface and a content browser with powerful drag-and-drop functionality, feature-rich Studio One will let you work quickly and stay focused on your inspiration. And with Studio One Professional, you can even master your projects and burn CDs and DVDs-a combination of features available in no other audio recording and production software.

QMix-AI
If you have a StudioLive RM-series mixer, your new onstage personal monitoring system is probably already in your pocket. With free PreSonus QMix-AI software, up to 14 musicians can simultaneously control their StudioLive RM-series mixer's monitor (aux) mixes using an iPhone or iPod touch. Each musician can control one of 16 aux mixes. And QMix-AI is incredibly easy to set up and use.

Nimbit
Nimbit is a powerful all-in-one sales, marketing, and promotion service that allows you to share audio content as well as organize, market to, and manage a fan base. Uses can also create a profile, an online store, and promote upcoming events. A Nimbit Free account is included with your StudioLive RM; it includes many of the service's best features and is comparable to many other paid services. If you want more features, you can add a la carte features or upgrade to a Nimbit Premium account and take advantage of everything Nimbit can do.

    Comments about PreSonus StudioLive RM32AI Rack Mount Mixer:

    What an amazing mixer. So far have had no issues with and going on two months of use. We moved to this mixer in out church and are simply amazed on how we have added so many new options threw this mixer yet simplified our sound system. This was easy to learn and easy to switch over too. Also recording the music via firewire is amazing. Using capture to play back our recordings aloud us to get everyone's monitor mix set up with easy with out anyone having to play. Love UC Surface love Capture love this mixer.

        Comments about PreSonus StudioLive RM32AI Rack Mount Mixer:

        My High school theater bought one of these recently. The mixer itself is amazing. It's extremely feature rich and can handle anything we through at it. The UC Surface software on the other hand isnt great, nor is the optional Lenovo Computer. The touchscreen is god awful, which ruins half the point of having it, and the windows version of the software is so buggy its not even worth it. Every night we use it it will lock up for at least a minute, and one night it even gave us a BSOD which is completely unacceptable if we were using this in a professional environment. The layout is nice to use and very intuitive, but i would not opt for it with the given bugs. On IOS, the app works fine which is great for sound-checking when your on stage adjusting equipment. I however would opt for the AI controller at FOH. Don't use a touchscreen computer, unless you want issues.

          Comments about PreSonus StudioLive RM32AI Rack Mount Mixer:

          Okay being that I own a Presonus 16.4.2 I already had good working knowledge of a Studio Live mixer. The RM32AI is a well designed easy to understand mixer. Everything is laid out so you can see all key elements of your mix. Everything is easily accessible and easily monitored from the screen. Some may not like the fact that there is not an actual mixer sitting in front of them. For me its not an issue at all. I will usually set up the mixer and switch to the iPad to control front of house anyway. So I'm used to not having an actual mixer in front of me. I'm not saying this is for everyone but it works great for me I made the purchase because of a couple of reasons . The band I manage and run sound for is on the road so weight and footprints are a big factor for us. They also play a lot of outdoor events. I have to constantly fight temperature, sunlight, and worst of all dust and dirt. With the RM32 the faders are virtual the mixer is virtual. My 23" monitor can handle the conditions that a mixer can't. I am also able to throw it in a backpack with my computer (minus the external monitor) and I'm off. Try that with an actual 32 channel board. I use a Windows computer with an external 23" monitor as the control and a Mac Pro for the FireWire connected recording and playback. You can use the same computer to do both but I have a person who handles the recordings. This way we are both on our own computer. The RM32 sounds amazing with our system. It connects easily to our wireless network for my front of house control as well as the band members monitor controls. Will this mixer compare to a professional Midas board? Absolutely not. But it is a great option for a band that needs an easy to use, great sounding mixer with a price tag that doesn't take years to recover.
