R Series (USB)
The RUio16-D features a variety of input/output jacks to meet the varied needs of engineers.
Use the included VST Rack Pro software to create your own flexible, highly stable plug-in environment. If you are also using a Dante-enabled mixer such as the QL Series, it’s easy to integrate this into your system.
This product also features a high-quality microphone preamp for use in applications such as acoustic measurement.
A compact yet rugged interface
The RUio16-D is an audio interface that’s compact enough to carry in one hand, making it easy to bring with you in your carry-on luggage while traveling.
At the same time, this product features a rugged housing that can withstand the demands of touring. Since the bottom of the housing features M4-size screw holes, the RUio16-D can be mounted onto a rack shelf.
Enjoy a highly flexible plug-in environment
Engineers can use the RUio16-D in conjunction with the bundled VST Rack Pro software for a stable plug-in environment. With this setup, engineers can integrate their preferred VST plug-ins that they’ve already purchased for live performance and studio use into the system, as well as over 30 different standard plug-ins that are supplied with the VST Rack Pro.
*VST3-compatible plug-ins can be used.
Bypass function for minimizing potential trouble
The front panel of the RUio16-D features a switch for bypassing the audio transmission from the plug-in side. The feature is used if a problem occurs on your computer, preventing any trouble that might stop the sound on the entire system.
The RUio16-D also features Dante redundancy, latches on the XLR connectors, and a locking mechanism on the USB ports used to supply power, all of which have been carefully designed to minimize any potential trouble.
The VST Rack Pro includes an array of more than 30 rich-sounding popular plug-ins created by Yamaha and Steinberg.
These include the Buss Comp 369, which has been praised by RIVAGE PM users; REVerence, which offers high-quality sampled reverbs; and the SuperVision, which is useful for managing loudness, together with other plug-ins that can be used in wide variety of other applications.
Adding the RUio16-D and the VST Rack Pro to your touring system will let you use sounds from the plug-ins you’re accustomed to, giving you the sound you want wherever you happen to be.
Adding VST plug-ins to a Dante system
It’s easy to add the RUio16-D to sound systems such as the QL Series which use Dante in their infrastructure. You can add up to 16 channels of high-quality plug-ins such as compressors and sampling reverbs without the need for complex wiring or configuration. Just adding simple wiring and a compact interface will provide a significant upgrade to an existing system.
Use as a multipurpose interface to handle plug-ins and acoustic measurement simultaneously
The RUio16-D comes with a wealth of analog, Dante, and USB inputs and outputs that allow you to put it to good use as an interface to integrate plug-ins into your system, as well as for a range of other applications. This system is one such example, using the analog input with a high-grade mic pre as an audio interface for acoustic measurement.
As shown, the RUio16-D is a groundbreaking audio interface that is compact and portable while also being suitable for a wide variety of applications.
*A maximum of 14 Dante input and output channels can be used when using analog inputs and outputs.
*Insert signals cannot be input or output from the Dante port of CL Series consoles. A Dante-MY16-AUD2 card must be used as well.
