Studiomaster goes ultra-compact
Studiomaster’s digiLive 16R is described by the manufacturer as an ultra-compact “blackbox” variant of its digiLive 16 hybrid touchscreen/tablet micro-mixer. The manufacturer states that the mixer provides identical internal features, I/O and bus specifications as the digiLive 16 but in a compact rackmount unit which is fully controllable, via Wi-Fi, from an iPad.
Going into further detail, the unit offers a 16 input – 16 bus – eight output configuration, plus DSP technology with 40-bit floating point on fourth generation SHARC processing, and proprietary mix algorithms for EQ, dynamics and FX. There are 12 XLR mic input channels, 24 bit/192kHz AD/DA conversion, and up to eight internal effects busses with reverb, delay, 15-band EQ and modulation.
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.
