    STUDIOLIVE 16R - Overview

    The StudioLive 16R Series III rack mixer is a perfect partner for your StudioLive Series III console/recorder, serving as either a simple stage box or a combination stage box and monitor mixer. Since Series III rack mixers and consoles can network using AVB, you can connect your StudioLive 16R to a Series III front-of-house console with one lightweight CAT5e or CAT6 Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for a heavy, expensive copper snake-and the signal degradation that goes with long analog cable runs. You can even remote control the StudioLive 16R's preamps and phantom power from your networked Series III console. In stage box + monitor mixer mode, the StudioLive 16R not only serves as an excellent networked stage box, it is a full blown monitor mixer with far more processing and mixing power than any mixer in its class-all packed into just one rackspace. (1U).

    Networking isn't the future of professional audio systems; it's here now. StudioLive 16R Series III rack mixers come equipped with an AVB Ethernet connection that enables you to network multiple StudioLive Series III mixers and compatible computers and stream up to 32 channels of audio to and from a Mac or Windows PC. You also get 18x18 recording via USB 2.0, giving you a choice of computer recording methods. Each channel can independently access its analog input or its dedicated digital return from your computer. Alternatively, quickly and easily record the main mix-or any other stereo mix-to the built-in SD Card recorder. Upload a show for fans, give the band a reference recording, and more, no computer required. You can even simultaneously multitrack record to your laptop via USB or AVB and record in stereo to SD.

    In addition to the AVB recording connection, StudioLive Series III rack mixers sport a 1 Gb Ethernet port that can connect to a wireless router or directly to a computer, providing remote control of virtually all features. Mix wirelessly or over a wired network from anywhere using UC Surface for Mac, Windows, iPad, and Android tablet. Even add a second-or third, or even fourth!-screen for fast workflow. Musicians can control their monitor mixes onstage with QMix-UC for iPhone, iPod touch, or Android device without the need for large monitor networks. Go wireless, wired, or both.

    Now includes Studio Magic Plug-in Suite!
