Studiomaster has introduced the digiLiVE16R, a compact “blackbox” iPad-driven version of the digiLiVE16 hybrid concept mixer.
The digiLiVE16R mixer provides identical internal features and bus specifications as the digiLiVE16, and is Wi-Fi controllable from an iPad. It provides a 16-input/16-bus/8-output configuration. DSP is driven by 40-bit floating point, 4th generation SHARC internal processing, with proprietary algorithms for EQ, dynamics and FX.
The mixer also has XLR mic input channels, 24-bit/48 kHz AD/DA conversion, and up to eight internal effects buses with reverb, delay, 15-band EQ and modulation. The eight “smart” XLR analog outputs are assignable.
Outputs also include digital AES/EBU and SPDIF. A USB interface supports playback and recording, scene storage and system updating.
Studiomaster has also introduced the TOWER1216D, a self-powered, iPad controllable column loudspeaker system that offers a digital mixing system based on the digiLiVE16R.
It includes 12 XLR mic input channels, four line inputs, 16 internal buses, including eight “smart” user-defined analog outputs (two internal to the loudspeaker and six external outs on XLR). Also onboard are proprietary algorithms for EQ, dynamics, and FX.
All mix settings are remotely controllable and programmable via Wi-Fi from the iPad mix app. Also included are AES/EBU and SPDIF digital I/Os, and dual USB ports for playback, recording and scene storage applications.
Variable configurations of three different column array cabinets are available – 4 x 4-inch, 6 x 3-inch, and 8 x 2-inch. Two additional subs (1 x 12-inch and 1 x 15-inch) are available, with onboard power amplification and DSP control.
