Allen & Heath has released the latest version of its iLive firmware and Editor software, which includes a range of enhancements including support of the new iLive-R72 Control Surface, Dual-Rack input expansion, and 'SuperStrip' user view in the Editor control software. Here's what they have to say in their press release...
Introduced at NAMM 2010, the new iLive-R72 rack mountable Control Surface is the most compact iLive surface to date, providing 72 control strips, arranged in 6 layers of 12 faders across 2 banks. The latest software release supports the new hardware, including full compatibility with the virtual control Editor software.
The most significant new feature in v1.6 is the Dual-Rack system expansion, allowing up to 128 input channels to be used simultaneously. Two MixRacks can now be linked together via the Port B sockets, expanding the number of channels feeding the 32 mix buses, and enabling both racks to be controlled by one surface. The Master Rack is assigned to CH1-64 and the Slave Rack to CH65-128.
Among the many new developments in the popular offline/online Editor control software is the 'SuperStrip' processing view, which combines important live mixing parameters into a convenient single window, enabling a more comprehensive view of functions when configuring offline or mixing live.
Another key feature in v1.6 is the ability to set the redundancy socket on Allen & Heath's ACEâ„¢ (Audio and Control over Ethernet) option card as a breakout to split to other iLive systems, offering a cost effective alternative to audio networking.
There is an array of feature enhancements to improve flexibility, including a Range Select patch function for easier set up of FOH/Monitor/Recording applications, and Safe mode for DCA master levels and mutes when recalling Scenes, ideal for festivals or events involving multiple band set ups.
