Prolight + Sound: Studiomaster to debut digiLiVe console

Studiomaster is set to launch digiLiVE, a new ultra-compact digital audio mixer at Musikmesse and Prolight + Sound simultaneously.

digiLiVE 16 is a 16-input, 16-bus, eight-output digital audio mixer sporting a control surface integrating a 7in Android-driven high-resolution touch-screen and eight motorised 100mm fader operation, alongside fully remote (iOS and Android) tablet operation. The company will be showing the new mixers on its stands in both the Prolight + Sound and Musikmesse exhibition halls.

The 16 inputs include 12 professional mic input channels; AD/DA conversion is 24-bit/192 kHz and there are up to eight internal effects busses with reverb, delay, 15-band EQ and modulation. The eight ‘smart’ XLR analogue outputs are assignable, and outputs also include digital AES/EBU ands SPDIF. Two USB interfaces are included (front and rear panel) supporting playback and recording, scene storage and system updating, while WiFi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity are supported. 

Other new Studiomaster products being shown at Prolight + Sound include the European debut of the VISION compact analogue mixer series. VISION is available in unpowered (VISION 8) and powered 2x500W (VISION 1008) and 2x1000W (VISION 2008) variants, featuring ultra-lightweight ‘audiophile-quality’ Class-D amplification. All models feature eight channels – six mic and two stereo and 9-band graphic EQ.
