Stage Tec has announced the release of new 1.12 softer for the AVATUS IP mixing console, bringing several new features and functions to the platform.
First up is simultaneous operation of AVATUS by two sound engineers. The virtual division of a console, which can also consist of several physical buckets, takes place in blocks of 12 control strips each, which make up one cassette.
Both engineers have unlimited and independent access to various functions, including their own SOLO and PFL functionalities, each in its own control room. The global layer switching, function selection and synchronous scrolling of lists (Aux, N-1, groups, EQ bands, …) only affect the respective user area. Further, functions such as spill, the temporary link function, or Aux-/N-1 to faders (including auto lists) can be altered independently by both engineers, and they can also access all audio channels simultaneously and work with the same channels (e.g., ambience).
The new software release is also designed to enhance performance and response times. And the talk functionality of the two command paths can now be assigned to any user button.
Particularly for collaboration between engineers, AVATUS now offers the ability of temporarily linking one of the two control rooms to the other at the push of a button. Both control rooms always carry the same monitoring signal, but can be operated independently, and volume, mute functions, DIM, side, and polarity swaps are independent.
The alternative monitoring function for both AVATUS control rooms is another new feature. It’s possible to switch between two monitoring systems in both control rooms. The crosspoints for the outputs of the monitoring systems are stored system-wide and no longer depend on the project.
New software release 1.12 for AVATUS is available now.
