VENUE 5.4 Upgrade for Avid S6L

George Petersen
New Gear

VENUE 5.4 software offers new capabilities to the S6L live console's Snapshot and Events architecture to streamline and accelerate programming of theater or complex live sound productions. These include new momentary (non-sequential) snapshots, snapshot groups, parent/child snapshots and now up to 96 aux sends can be added to the snapshot Scope. Sound designers and engineers now have greater flexibility to trigger events via external MIDI commands, LTC/MTC timecode values, the channel color and X&Y switches on the control surface, meter levels and more, making almost all parameters available as triggers and actions. Version 5.4 also lets users freely assign outputs between networked S6L systems sharing I/O, enabling engineers to assign Stage 64 outputs per output card instead of having to assign a Stage 64 entirely to one S6L system or another.

Focusrite Releases RedNet Control 2 Software

Focusrite releases RedNet Control 2 Software, a major update to RedNet Control, the software system that provides remote control for products in the company's RedNet range of Dante-based audio-over-IP systems. "RedNet systems incorporating hundreds or even thousands of signals are now simpler and easier to manage," says RedNet Product Manager Will Hoult. "Live Sound workflows can be streamlined by separating units into different areas, and the management of extremely large systems – such as an educational establishment with multiple performance or recording areas spread across a campus or beyond – is now significantly easier than before. RedNet Control 2 represents a major improvement to the system's flexibility and ease of use."

Any live engineer is familiar with the challenge of having to mix multiple channels of speech mics. The Waves Dugan Automixer + Dugan Speech bundle saves users the tedious need to manually ride faders while trying to keep up with several people talking at once. Developed with pro audio inventor Dan Dugan, both Dugan plug-ins are powered by his patented voice-activated process. The bundle includes the Dugan Speech for integrated use inside the Waves eMotion LV1 live mixing console and the Dugan Automixer for other major live sound consoles.

Digital 6000 has been designed to keep additional investments as low as possible: Existing antenna infrastructures can continue to be used as the system works with standard active and passive wideband UHF antennas, with the highly frequency-selective input filters being contained in the EM 6000 receiver.

Next-proaudio will soon launch its new Acoustical Simulation Tool (AST) software, an acoustic simulation software for 2D modeling of either single subwoofer sources or sub-arrays. Through a user-friendly interface, AST helps Next-proaudio users predict the acoustical performance of the subwoofers, helping the user to find the best solution for a given venue with multiple sound sources. The simulator allows the user to simulate in 11 different ISO 266 spacing frequencies (20Hz~200Hz) with a single click.
