The StudioLive AR12 USB provides a complete solution for mixing and recording, including a flexible array of inputs and outputs. In addition to a 60 mm fader and an XLR mic input with Class A preamp, each of the four mono channels and four stereo channels gives you a line input, low-cut filter, mute, pan, and solo with prefader listen.
As a result, you can plug in mics, keyboards, and much more with the same types of controls found in larger mixing consoles. Phantom power can be enabled globally for use with condenser microphones; simply switch it off if you want to use dynamic mics.
All mono channels feature three-band, semi-parametric EQ with a sweepable mid band. That gives you enough tone-shaping precision to make each instrument sound its best in the mix. Need more tools? You also get two channel inserts (on Channels 1 and 2) to add external processors.
The stereo channels (Channels 5 through 12) provide a mic input for the odd-numbered channel, left and right line inputs, and basic three-band, semi-parametric EQ.
This is just part of the StudioLive AR’s assortment of connections; as you’ll discover in a moment, this mixer can accept signals from virtually any audio source!
