D3PTH Immersive Audio provides an enhanced palette of mixing options for sound designers, audio engineers, artists and producers

D3PTH Immersive Audio has been developed by RCF to improve the acoustic landscape and the intelligibility for audiences inside performance venues and to provide an ‘enhanced palette’ of mixing options for engineers.

The Italian manufacturer states that it has paid particular attention to ‘practical speaker configurations’ with the development of D3PTH, and that a frontal system setup, with line arrays arranged above a performing stage, would be sufficient to create an immersive audio soundfield, allowing listeners to perceive an expanded stereo image, with increased transparency and intelligibility. RCF suggests configurations of between five and nine line array clusters above a stage for an ‘expanded stereo coverage of around 70% in a typical venue’.

Providing all the necessary processing is the D3PTH E1 rackmount engine, while the D3PTH Control Software offers real-time control. Switching the D3PTH E1 to Full System mode allows it to handle fully immersive setups, as it can manage everything from generic speaker layouts to 360° installations.

In terms of mixing options, an FOH engineer will reportedly have several options at their fingertips. They can track performers onstage or distribute source material to different panning positions for enhancing the perceived separation of sources and improving the overall mix quality. D3PTH has also been designed so that backing sounds, such as secondary instruments and background vocals, can be perceived more clearly, and so that rendering of stereo signals is more precise with an overall width that can be adjusted.

RCF has also introduced the M 20X Series, an extension of the M Series of digital mixers that comprises the M 20X, M 20R, M 20XD and M 20RD. These new mixers are DSP-rich and fully recallable, with 11 motorised faders and 16 remote controlled preamps.

The new consoles feature 20 input channels with 16 mic preamps, with eight XLR and eight combo inputs, two TRS inputs and a stereo input on a mini jack. There are 10 routable output channels, formed from eight XLRs and two TRSs, as well as two main output XLRs.

The rear panel comprises AES-EBU stereo output, a USB audio 24x24 multichannel interface and a LAN port, providing external access point for wireless remote control. A 5-inch capacitive touchscreen with five encoders offers control of all the mixer’s capabilities.
