PreSonus Audio Electronics, Inc. Announces UC Surface Control Software
Sep 1 14
PreSonus’ new UC Surface control software was specifically designed to be an interface for live mixing but also serves well in a studio environment. The careful layout of the mixing features provides quick, intuitive access to everything need in the heat of mixing. This remote-control software runs on Mac and Windows computers, as well as iPad, so one only need to learn one piece of software regardless of platform. UC Surface supports iPad and Windows 8 touchscreens, taking full advantage of these intuitive multi-touch interface technologies. The 3U rack-mount RM16AI provides 16 locking XLR inputs with recallable XMAX™ Class A preamps, 8 XLR line outs, and 3 main outs (left, right, and mono/center); 32 internal channels and 25 buses; a 52x34 FireWire 800 recording interface; 96 kHz operation; and extensive signal processing. The 4U rack-mount RM32AI offers 32 inputs with recallable XMAX preamps and 16 line outputs but otherwise has the same features as the 16-input version. Both mixers offer individual +48V phantom power on all inputs; a +48V Meters button displays phantom-power assignment on the input meter grid. Scalable and designed for live-sound mixing and studio recording, the RM-series mixers’ Active Integration™ technology includes direct Wi-Fi and Ethernet networking and tightly integrated Capture™ recording software with true Virtual Soundcheck mode and Studio One ® Artist DAW for Mac and Windows. StudioLive RM-series mixers are true Active Integration mixers, with Fat Channel signal processing on all input channels and all buses, including a 4-band parametric EQ, compressor, gate, limiter, and more. However, unlike StudioLive AI mixers, the RM series’ recallable XMAX preamps mean that every parameter on the mixer can be saved and recalled. With a remote stage-box form factor, these mixers are built to withstand rigorous road abuse. The front panel provides input signal-present and clip LEDs (16 for the RM16AI, 32 for the RM32AI) and provides stereo RCA tape inputs, a headphone output with volume knob and source-select buttons, a Mute All button that temporarily mutes all inputs and outputs, and a USB type-A jack that hosts the included Wi-Fi LAN adapter. The rear panel contains an option slot that comes with two FireWire 800 ports, an Ethernet control port, and S/PDIF I/O. The slot also accepts the same option cards as the StudioLive AI-series digital mixers; with Dante, AVB, and Thunderbolt cards coming soon, StudioLive RM-series mixers can easily be updated to keep up with the latest networking technologies. Also on the rear are a power jack and switch, MIDI I/O, and a mirror of the line outputs on a DB25 connector—perfect for connecting to wireless in-ear systems. In addition to UC Surface, the tightly integrated software bundle includes PreSonus Capture™ live-recording software with true Virtual Soundcheck and easy-to-use Studio One Artist DAW. StudioLive RM-series mixers also work with PreSonus’ free QMix-AI aux-mix control software for iPhone/iPod touch, enabling musicians to control their own monitor mixes. An extensive library of tutorials and downloads completes the package.
