Highlights & specs
The channel that does it all

The unique Super Channel makes it easy to connect up to four consumer devices at once. You get RCA inputs, a ⅛-inch stereo input, and a stereo Bluetooth input all at once. Toggle between playback from your computer and the onboard SD recorder to add bumpers and sound effects to your podcast in real time or practice along with your favorite recordings.

The channel that does it all
Onboard effects.

The StudioLive AR8c mixer’s onboard effects processor lets you add high-quality reverb, delay, or chorus to any channel for a professional monitor mix. Like what you hear in your headphones? Record the main mix and capture the effects mix, too—with or without the dry channels—to blend with your multitrack recording. Experiment in post-production to your heart's content.
