Allen & Heath’s iLive-T112
with the iDR-48.
Agoura Hills, CA (February 24, 2009)–Allen & Heath has launched a new compact digital mixing system, evolved from the company’s flagship iLive digital range.
The T Series comprises the fixed I/O iDR-32 and iDR-48 MixRacks and iLive-T80 and iLive-T112 surface options with remote Cat-5 connection. Each rack can be used with either control surface, and all models will be compatible with the existing iLive units.
“The T Series has been developed using proven digital technology from our flagship iLive professional range,” explains Allen & Heath managing director, Glenn Rogers. “It has flexible audio architecture, with configurable busses, patching, control and FX, and offers the same processing power, DSP algorithms and functionality. We are thrilled to be able to deliver the same stunning audio performance in a smaller footprint at a fraction of the price, and open up digital technology to a new audience.”
Using iLive’s 64×32 RackExtra DSP mix engine, both T Series racks provide processing for 64 channels, 32 mixes, plus eight stereo FX engines. The systems feature the latest dualcore DSP technology, handling full dynamics, EQ and delay for all signals, which reportedly ensures, for example, that each of the 32 mixes has a dedicated third-octave graphic EQ as well as a parametric EQ available.
The iDR-32 MixRack provides 32 mic/line inputs and 16 outputs in a compact 4U frame, while the 6U iDR-48 provides 48 mic/line inputs and 24 outputs. The iLive-T80 and iLive-T112 surfaces add a further 8-in/8-out and 16-in/12-out respectively, and when combined with the mixracks, provide capacity for typical PA applications with 40-in/24-out to 64-in/36-out systems.
