Allen & Heath bridges the gap

Based on the company’s XCVI FPGA engine, Allen & Heath has revealed its 96kHz digital mixer with the launch of Avantis

Bridging the gap between the SQ and dLive formats, the standalone 64-channel mixer comes with a 42 configurable bus configuration with extensive I/O options and a dPack software upgrade package providing access to optional dLive processing.

Encased in a lightweight, yet strengthened, alloy shell and tubular frame, the Avantis control surface focuses on two Full HD touchscreens and their corresponding rotary controls. With Continuity UI, engineers can manage a seamless flow between the physical controls and the onscreen software, such as gains and pans on the rotaries, then at the touch of a soft key switch to EQ or dynamics across the whole strip. The console also provides a configurable FastGrab tab on the right-hand side of each screen, offering an alternative route for accessing the control of aux sends, EQ, compressor and FX on a selected channel or spot channel.

Operating within the UK manufacturer’s Everything I/O ecosystem, Avantis can also be connected to a wider range of audio expander hardware. Avantis can be paired with the existing 48-in/16-out GX4816 audio expander, while it is also compatible with other hardware such as the ME series of personal mixers and IP remote controllers.

For local I/O, Avantis is equipped with 12 XLR analogue inputs, 12 XLR analogue outputs plus AES (stereo in, two stereo out) connections. Expanding the scope for system integration, FOH/monitor splits and multitrack recording, two additional I/O ports can be used for inserting any of the full range of current dLive option cards including Dante (64 x 64 and 128 x 128), Waves, gigaACE and MADI.

The console is pre-loaded with processing tools including compressors, EQs and 12-slot RackExtra FX units. Upgrading to dPack expands Avantis further with additional dLive processing including the Dyn8 dynamics engine (up to 16 instances), DEEP Compressors and the Dual-Stage Valve preamp. Designed to future-proofing their investment, dPack purchasers will automatically receive all future DEEP and FX updates at no extra charge.
