Allen & Heath expands its appeal

The GX4816 is equipped with two DX ports for further expansion or bridge connection to a ME personal mixing system

Following the launch of the Dante-enabled I/O boxes, Allen & Heath has expanded its ‘Everything I/O’ ecosystem with the addition of two new remote audio expanders. Designed to be a high-channel-count remote expander, the 96kHz GX4816 is a central hub for all stage I/O that connects via a single cable link to SQ and dLive systems. Incorporating 48 dLive mic preamps and 16 XLR outputs in a 4U chassis, the GX4816 is equipped with two DX ports for further expansion or bridge connection to a ME personal mixing system. In addition, the DX012 is a 1U output expander that feeds IEMs and amplifier racks. A second DX012, DX168 or DX164-W can be cascaded to the unit, while a redundant connection can be made to compatible hardware. The current array of I/O options includes the 48kHz AR2412, AR84 and AB168 audio racks for Qu and SQ digital mixers, the modular DX32 rack, the portable DX168, the wall-mount DX164-W for SQ and dLive systems and the Dante-enabled DT168 and DT164-W. Larger systems can also be facilitated by the DX Hub expander.

In other news, the manufacturer has released Custom Control, a cross-platform control app for dLive systems. Users can design multiple interfaces tailored to different levels and device types. Access to all levels, mutes and sends is provided, together with preset recall, source selection and metering. Tabs can be configured for access to multiple control pages or zones. Once complete, the configuration is uploaded to the core of the system, the MixRack, ready for deployment. Any device running the Custom Control app can log into the system with a given user profile, at which point the correct user interface is downloaded and displayed. This allows for both kiosk applications and BYOD use.

Finally, V1.4 firmware for the SQ series has been unveiled. Three new audio tools – Multiband Compressors, Dynamic EQ and De-Esser – allow SQ users to have up to eight instances that can be inserted on any input channel, group or mix. V1.4 also introduces an offline mode for SQ’s MixPad app, which is now being released for PC and Mac. Offline mode allows engineers to create show files without the need for an SQ, manage shows and scenes offline, and send and receive shows over a wired or wireless network.
