    PreSonus StudioLive mixers redefined affordable compact mixing, forever changing the world and setting the standard for what digital mixers could be. Built from this award winning legacy, the CS18AI is a compact, intuitive mixing solution for the StudioLive RM16AI and RM32AI rack mount digital mixers and Studio One digital audio workstation. The StudioLive philosophy means being at home both live and in the studio, being easy to learn, and incorporating uniquely PreSonus workflows and features.
    The Power Of Active Integration
    Your needs are unique. PreSonus AI systems are designed to address your individual requirements. With several options for control and exclusive software integration features you can accomplish more with exactly the type of control and capabilities you need.
    The CS18AI connects to RM mixers with a single Cat 5 Ethernet cable. That enables Active Integration with PreSonus software including UC Surface™ software for extended 2nd screen workflows, control from iPads and Windows 8 touch computers, iPhone and iPod management of personal monitor mixes with QMix-AI, and direct Capture™ control for live recording and virtual sound checks.
    Filter DCAs Are Better Than Layers
    Presonus have never really liked the complexity that comes with navigating your mix with channel layers. That's why StudioLive mixers have traditionally features a 1 to 1 channel configuration with no layers. While the CS18AI does support classic layer navigation, it also features their unique Filter DCAs for controlling and navigating your mix.
    The CS18AI is the first live mix system that lets you control 64 channels from a 19 inch rack mountable control surface. The Filter DCA groups bring the elements of the mix to you. Rather than trying to remember which layer the lead guitar is on, simply select your guitar DCA Filter and it brings it to you. Filter DCAs take concepts of DCAs and view groups and combine them into an intuitive workflow designed to make your life easier when you're in the heat of a live mix. No other mixing system can offer such compact and affordable mixing system that's so easy to use.
    Mix In Touch Sensitive Techno-Colour
    Every aspect of the CS18AI was designed to help you mix with ease and reliability. Eighteen RGB select buttons can be customised to make it easier to identify different channels based on the colour. 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, sixteen high-64x96-pixel scribble strips, a touch-sensitive 4.3 inch /109mm LCD display, and sixteen 11-segment LED level ladders. If you need to control it, Presonus made it light up.
    The Perfect DAW Controller For Studio One.
    With a simple Ethernet connection, 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.
    4x2 Networked AVB Audio Built-In
    Through the power and flexibility of audio networking, the CS18AI can send and receive audio channels across long distances with just a single Ethernet cable. Use the two mic and two line inputs as sources for the talkback, digital return, or any channel on the RM mixers. The two returns are shared with the monitor line outputs and headphone output, and can be sourced from any output of the RM mixers including the Solo bus, Main Mix, or any Aux mixes.
