Highlights & Specs
An Integrated Monitor Mixer.
Having a dedicated monitor mixer is the best way to ensure musicians can hear themselves clearly on stage. When connected to a StudioLive Series III console mixer, the StudioLive 16R provides remote inputs and main outputs while simultaneously retaining full control over its FlexMixes, so you can create up to six monitor mixes complete with independent gate, compression, EQ, and effects on every channel and bus.
The Perfect Personal Monitoring System.
When combined with up to 16 EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers, the StudioLive 16R is the most powerful personal monitoring hub available. With 6 FlexMix buses that can be configured as aux mixes, subgroups, or matrix mixes, the StudioLive 16R makes it easy to create simplified mixes for musicians on stage. No other personal monitoring system offers so much power and flexibility.
The Digital Stage Box.
As a digital stage box, the StudioLive 16R provides 16 remote digitally controlled XMAX preamps that can be gain-staged right from your StudioLive Series III console Fat Channel. The outputs of the StudioLive 16R automatically mirror the mixes available on your console mixer, making routing fast and easy.
A Complete Networked Solution.
StudioLive Series III networked products form an ecosystem that is easily expanded and quickly configured. Designed to enhance each other, these products are at the forefront of AVB networking technology. Whether used standalone or part of a StudioLive Series III ecosystem network, the StudioLive 16R is the ultimate compact audio solution.
