AutoTouchPlus, the dynamic automation system that is part of the Studer Vista 7 and Vista 8 consoles, is now also available on the Studer Vista 5.

The recent upgrade means that the Vista 5, which is primarily a live production console, can now also be used for post production work, for example between live sessions.

All parameters of the console can be automated against timecode, in the most simple and intuitive way, using touch sensitive faders and Vistonics encoders.

The Vistonics screens display the current mix pass values along with the previously written mix data from the last mix pass, providing an informative overview provided by no other console on the market.

The existing MIDI port is used to read MTC (MIDI Timecode) to which the automation is then slaved. For systems based on linear SMPTE timecode (LTC), an optional LTC to MTC converter is available.

The main control panel for AutoTouchPlus, the virtual ACU (automation control unit) is displayed as a window on the Graphical Controller, and in addition, the most important buttons from this panel are provided on the desk surface as well.

Existing Vista 5 installations can be upgraded to this functionality from software version 4.2 onwards.
