PreSonus Delivers ULT10 Long-Throw Loudspeaker

Presonus ULT10 Loudspeaker available from Kazbar Systems

® is shipping the ULT10, the newest model in the company’s ULT line of active loudspeakers. ULT full-range loudspeakers combine the widest horizontal dispersion of any loudspeaker in their class with a focused vertical dispersion for an ultra-long throw. The result is even coverage throughout the space, enabling the audience to hear clearly wherever they are. Designed for both mobile use and permanent installations, the ULT10 joins the ULT12 and ULT15 full-range systems and the ULT18 subwoofer in the line.

ULT10 features PreSonus’ proprietary, rotatable Pivot X110 horn and a proprietary, 10-inch, low-frequency driver with a 2.5-inch voice coil. The system is biamped and driven by a powerful 1,300W (peak) Class D amplifier, generating up to 130 dB SPL, and boasts a frequency response of 60 Hz to 18 kHz (-3 dB).

PreSonus’ proprietary Pivot X110 constant-directivity, rotatable horn combines ultra-wide horizontal coverage (110°) for broad coverage with focused vertical dispersion (50°) for superior throw. The result is a loudspeaker that can fill the room without introducing early reflections that muddy the sound. In addition, the Pivot X110 horn’s large size (11 x 11 inches) enables it to control the dispersion pattern lower in the frequency range than smaller conventional horns, so it maintains more consistent gain on- and off-axis, ensuring that the audience at the sides has the same listening experience as those in front. The result is sound reproduction that evenly fills the entire room.

The Pivot X110 horn can be rotated 90˚, so the ULT10 enclosure can be mounted in a horizontal configuration while still maintaining its 110˚ x 50˚ coverage pattern. Along with its compact size, this makes the ULT10 an ideal center-channel speaker for an LCR system or an under-balcony fill. Rotating the Pivot X110 horn can also help fix FOH issues in tall, narrow venues by minimizing early reflections and providing more directed coverage. Add the ULT10’s multi-angle enclosure and presets for live performance, floor monitor use, and music playback, and you have an extremely versatile loudspeaker that is equally at home at front-of-house and as a stage monitor.

You get two combo XLR and ¼-inch TRS inputs: a mic/line input with PreSonus’ acclaimed XMAX mic preamp and a line-level-only input. The inputs have independent level control, allowing up to two audio sources to be mixed internally and summed to a balanced XLR output for “daisy-chaining” multiple units. A separate direct output for the line input channel provides additional flexibility.

The ULT10 loudspeaker features a lightweight, Baltic birch enclosure with a tour grade, 16 gauge, powder-coated steel grille; ergonomic handles; a locking IEC power connector; and a defeatable front-panel power-indicator LED. A multi-angle enclosure enables ULT10s to serve as mains or monitor wedges. 


PreSonus StudioLive 16 & 32 Console Extends Series III Line

PreSonus announce an all-new third-generation StudioLive console with the StudioLive 32 and StudioLive 16 models

Presonus StudioLive 16 available from Kazbar Systems

Following up on its enthusiastically received StudioLive® 32 digital console/recorder, PreSonus® has unveiled the StudioLive® 16 digital console/recorder. The result of nine years of R&D, this second model in PreSonus’ StudioLive Series III line is fully recallable, with 17 touch-sensitive, motorized faders and 17 recallable XMAX preamps. The new 24-input console further improves on the StudioLive’s legendary ease of use while letting you customize its workflow and operations to fit the way you work.

Although it boasts 16 physical analog input channels, with 8 XLR microphone inputs and 8 combo mic/line inputs, and fits in a standard 19-inch rack (with optional rack ears), the new console is identical to the StudioLive 32 “under the hood,” providing 32 internal channels. All 32 internal channels can be addressed digitally via AVB or USB.

Presonus StudioLive 32 available from Kazbar Systems

As with the StudioLive 32, PreSonus Capture™ multitrack recording software with virtual soundcheck is installed directly into the StudioLive 16 so you can leave your laptop at home. With just one touch, Capture records up to 32 tracks to the StudioLive 16’s onboard SD recorder. When finished recording, open your Capture session in Studio One® for Mac® and Windows® (included), and the entire mix scene will transfer to your Studio One session, including fader levels and Fat Channel settings.

The StudioLive 16’s distinctive Fat Channel processing section has received a major overhaul, including a plug-in-style workflow that features vintage-style EQ and compression options on every channel, from classic tube limiters to passive EQs. In addition to channel processing, the StudioLive 16 offers 6-band, fully parametric EQ on all mix outputs.

StudioLive 16 goes above and beyond in providing ways to customize things to best fit the way you work. User layers for the channel faders let you place any channel or bus fader anywhere you want—and they’re easy to set up. You also can customize your Fat Channel layout, putting the parameters you care about most right at your fingertips, and there are several workflow options to personalize your mixing experience.

With StudioLive 16, you can customize scenes even more precisely than with previous models. You could always decide which settings would be recalled in a global StudioLive scene change. Now, with Scene Safe, a scene change won’t alter the settings on designated “safe” channels. Similarly, Fat Channel presets have, for practical purposes, become like scenes for individual channels, not only saving input and Fat Channel settings but also aux send and bus assignments. Of course you can also use preset filters to choose what you want to recall.

Don’t you hate it when you have an unused subgroup but you’re short one monitor mix? That’s not a problem anymore, thanks to 16 FlexMixes that can be individually designated as aux, subgroup, or matrix mixes. These 16 FlexMixes are in addition to the 4 fixed subgroups giving you a total of 20 mix buses, not counting the main mix and solo buses. And with 24 DCAs, you can more easily and flexibly control groups of channels.

An AVB Ethernet connection enables you to network multiple StudioLive 16 mixers and compatible computers and stream up to 55 channels of audio to and from a Mac or Windows PC. You also get 38×38 recording via USB 2.0, giving you a choice of computer recording methods. In addition to the AVB recording connection, StudioLive 16 consoles sport a 1 Gb Ethernet port that can connect to a wireless router or directly to a computer, providing remote control of virtually all features via a wired or wireless connection.

PreSonus StudioLive 16 mixers are tightly integrated with an entire suite of state-of-the-art software. Mix wirelessly or over a wired network from anywhere using free UC Surface touch-control software for Mac, Windows, and iPad®. Even add a second—or third, or even fourth!—screen for fast workflow. Remote control the mixer’s recallable XMAX preamps and Fat Channel processing with Studio One Artist (included) for low-latency recording with effects. Completely automate virtual soundchecks and record shows with Capture for Mac and Windows (included)—or record with Studio One or with any software that supports ASIO or Core Audio. Musicians can control their monitor mixes onstage with free QMix®-UC for iPhone®, iPod® touch, or Android device without the need for large monitor networks.
