Agoura Hills, CA (July 1, 2005)–Allen & Heath’s new GL4800 is the flagship console in the company’s third-generation GL range. Based on the GL4000, it is available in 24-, 32-, 40- and 48-frame sizes, each offering a choice of all mono, four stereo or eight stereo channels.
The GL4800 provides eight groups, 10 auxes, L, R and M main mixes, an 11×4 matrix and extensive mode switching, enabling the console to perform FOH, monitor or recording duties, or any combination of these simultaneously. The matrix can even be added to the aux for creating quick monitor mixes combining groups and LRM with key channel sends, or for adding FX to grouped signals. Its trimmable channel direct outputs, group trims, matrix and multiple main outputs provide a unique capability for recording, whether live or in the studio.
The host of useful facilities on the GL4800 includes mute groups and snapshots, MIDI, aux master faders and inserts, per channel pre/post aux flexibility, Solo-in-Place, and individual talkback. Other models in the new range are the GL2400, GL2800 and GL3800.
