By PSW Staff • April 30, 2018 The Stage Tec CRESCENDO-T console Responding to customer requests, Stage Tec recently presented a console with special features for theaters during the Prolight + Sound tradeshow: CRESCENDO-T. Automation is one of the most important features in a theatre audio mixing console. CRESCENDO offers two automation options, snapshot and scene automation. In CRESCENDO-T, static automation is now enhanced with some important functions that theaters require. For example, the five scene list control buttons are now on the surface for rapid access. Another feature is “snapshot preview,” which interrupts the link between the physical user interface and signal processing. This enables settings to be tried out first without the audio processor implementing them immediately. The eight custom keys for theatre applications on CRESCENDO-T With “Save All” mode, changes can be written as absolute values or relative changes (“Offset”) either in all or a selection of snapshots. In addition to the peak filters and the two cut filters, the CRESCENDO-T equalizer is also equipped with two shelving filters. “It is well-known that most theaters lack space and appreciate any console that saves room,” comments Christian Fuchs, application specialist for Theater/Live at Stage Tec. “We have recently seen an uptick in interest from theaters, which is why we are now offering the compact CRESCENDO with special features needed for theater applications.” Each CRESCENDO can be modified with software and eight custom keybindings as a special CRESCENDO-T for theater applications.
