Studiomaster has extended its new digiLiVE16 product line with new
models being shown for the first time in Europe on its booth #H40 in
Hall 4.1 at Prolight+Sound.
The Studiomaster digiLiVE16R is an ultra-compact “blackbox” iPad driven version of the new Studiomaster digiLiVE16 hybrid concept micro-mixer; the digiLiVE16 with simultaneous remote tablet and console operation, is also on the company’s booth.
The digiLiVE16R mixer provides identical internal features and buss specifications to the console format digiLiVE16, fully Wi-Fi controllable from an iPad. With a 16 input / 16 bus / 8 output configuration, the mixer features state-of-the-art DSP technology, including 40-bit floating point, 4th generation SHARC internal processing and proprietary mix algorithms for EQ, dynamics and FX. 12 XLR mic input channels, 24 bit/48 kHz AD / DA conversion, and up to eight internal effects busses – with reverb, delay, 15 band EQ and modulation, are included on the extensive spec list. The eight ‘smart’ XLR analogue outputs are assignable. Outputs also include digital AES/EBU and SPDIF. A USB interface supports playback and recording, scene storage and system updating.
Studiomaster is also expanding the breadth of its sound reinforcement speaker offering with the introduction of the TOWER self-powered compact, iPad mix controllable column-array systems. The TOWER1216D is the first portable column speaker system to include a fully-fledged digital mixing system, based on the Studiomaster digiLiVE16R (described above).
12 XLR mic input channels, 4 line inputs, 16 internal busses – including 8 “smart” user-defined analogue outputs (2 internal to the speaker system and 6 external outs on XLR) – proprietary algorithms for EQ, dynamics and FX, and all other mix settings are remotely controllable and programmable, via WiFi, 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 – 4x4”, 6x3”, 8x2” – for use with the 1216 enable a wide range of high quality sound reinforcement solutions for all manner of fixed and portable performance and audio playback applications (two additional subs – 1x12” and 1x15”– with onboard power amplification and DSP control are also available).
