The StudioLive CS18AI is a compact, intuitive mixing solution for the StudioLive RM16AI and RM32AI rack-mount digital mixers and Studio One v3 digital audio workstation.
The StudioLive CS18AI connects to RM mixers with a single CAT 5 Ethernet cable. That enables Active Integration with PreSonus software including UC Surface control software for iPad, Windows 8 touchscreen, and Mac computers; iPhone and iPod management of personal monitor mixes with QMix-AI; and direct Capture™ control for live recording and virtual soundchecks.
RGB Select buttons make it easier to identify channels, layers, and mixes based on color. True touch-sensitive faders know when your finger makes contact so the fader will never fight you, and you can experience real automation functionality in the studio. The CS18AI lights your way through mixing with 146 illuminated buttons; 16 high-res, 64×96 pixel scribble strips; a touch-sensitive, 4.3-inch (109 mm) LCD display; and 16 11-segment LED level ladders. If you need to control it, it lights up.
The perfect DAW controller for Studio One 3.
With a simple Ethernet connection, the StudioLive CS18AI becomes the control for Studio One, giving you an instant studio upgrade and closing the loop between studio and stage. Now you can get the performance of a big mixing console in a compact controller with a natural feel. Other DAW controllers give you some faders and generic controls that try to do too much with too little. The CS18AI is a complete mix controller that doesn’t skimp on functionality. You get all the classic mixer controls and workflows while still keeping the footprint compact.
