PreSonus® StudioLive® Series III 16R Digital Rack Mixer

18-Input, 16-Channel Series III Stage Box and Rack Mixer

18-Input, 16-Channel Series III Stage Box and Rack Mixer

The StudioLive® 16R digital mixer is four audio tools in a single rackspace. Use it as a standalone digital mixer with UC Surface remote mixing software. Pair it with your StudioLive Series III console mixer to use as a stage box or integrated monitor mixer. Connect it with EarMix 16M monitor mixers for the ultimate personal monitor system. Plug it into your studio computer, and you have a continuously bidirectional, 36-channel (18x18) USB audio interface with modeled vintage dynamics and EQ plug-ins on every input and bus. Whether used standalone or as part of a complete audio system, no other rackmount digital mixer is as flexible or as powerful.

Inside the StudioLive 16R, the single-core PreSonus® FLEX DSP Engine powers 18 mixing channels, 10 mix buses, and 130 simultaneous processors, including 2 stereo effects and Fat Channel plug-in models on every input channel and mix bus. This is a true 16-channel digital mixer that can comfortably fit in any size rig. Simply connect it to a standard wireless router and control every mix parameter from your iPad®, Android™ tablet, or Windows® Touch computer using UC Surface. UC Surface was designed to make mixing on a touch screen as intuitive as mixing on faders.

An integrated 36-channel (18x18) audio interface lets you record with digitally recallable analog preamps and a complete rack of vintage EQ and dynamics processors for every channel and bus. Modeled after classic analog studio designs, these compressor and EQ plug-ins load both natively on the StudioLive 16R and inside Studio One®, providing the ultimate mixing and recording flexibility.

Highlights & specs
An integrated monitor mixer.

Having a dedicated monitor mixer is the best way to ensure musicians can hear themselves clearly on stage. When connected to a StudioLive Series III console mixer, the StudioLive 16R provides remote inputs and main outputs while simultaneously retaining full control over its FlexMixes, so you can create up to six monitor mixes complete with independent gate, compression, EQ, and effects on every channel and bus.

An integrated monitor mixer.
The perfect personal monitoring system.

When combined with up to 16 EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers, the StudioLive 16R is the most powerful personal monitoring hub available. With 6 FlexMix buses that can be configured as aux mixes, subgroups, or matrix mixes, the StudioLive 16R makes it easy to create simplified mixes for musicians on stage. No other personal monitoring system offers so much power and flexibility.

The perfect personal monitoring system.
The digital stage box.

As a digital stage box, the StudioLive 16R provides 16 remote digitally controlled XMAX preamps that can be gain-staged right from your StudioLive Series III console Fat Channel. The outputs of the StudioLive 16R automatically mirror the mixes available on your console mixer, making routing fast and easy.
