Allen & Heath has added two new models to the iLive digital mixing series — the iDR-16 3U MixRack and iLive-R72 rackmountable Control Surface, designed to meld together into a space-saving, lightweight, digital live mixing system. The fixed I/O iDR-16 MixRack provides 16 mic/line inputs and eight XLR outputs in a compact 3U frame, with a further 8-in/8-out available locally at the iLive-R72 surface. All MixRacks, including the new iDR-16, feature the same 64 x 32 RackExtra DSP mix engine, providing processing for 64 channels, 32 mixes, and eight stereo FX processors.
The Port B option slot allows further audio networking possibilities, for example digital mic splitting and multitrack recording, with ACE, EtherSound, MADI, ADAT, and Aviom interfaces available. The compact iLive-R72 surface can be fitted in a universal 19-inch rack, and features a similar iLive fader strip layout with 12 faders in two banks and six layers, providing a total of 72 color assignable channel ID control strips, and a built-in touch screen.
