Roland Systems Group has announced a new firmware update (v1.5) for the M-300 V-Mixer console, which is a core component of the V-Mixing System providing mixing, effects and external control of digital snake pre-amps, multi-channel recording, instant playback, rehearsal and personal mixing for musicians.
The free version update includes a new 31-band mono GEQ, an expanded group of library effects, cross-fade for scene changes and a detailed recall filter function that enables selection of parameters to recall at a greater level of granularity.
In addition, enhancements in operability have been made such as a channel display screen for DCA groups, the ability to disable more user settings, and a default guest startup mode to allow basic users functionality without the administration credentials.
For monitoring, a dimmer function has been added and a lock out feature to disable the level knobs to prevent accidental monitor volume changes.
The Roland M-300 Version 1.5 upgrade has improved the number of RS-232C control parameters ensuring that system installers, integrators, and users have access to more remote control functionality from touch panels, video devices, and software.
The M-300 Version 1.5 software is expected to be released in Q4, 2012.
