Safety Harbor, FL (August 14, 2013)—Metric Halo’s MIO Console upgrade v.5.6 is now available, free for all users of the mobile I/O family of audio interfaces.
New features in the update include: I/O inserts for accessing external hardware from within the MIO Mixer; ConsoleSync hardware/software synchronization technology; AAX ConsoleConnect plug-in for compatibility with Pro Tools 11; saving of system boot states; and support for EuCon 3.0. In addition to these new features, v.5.6 reportedly improves stability and compatibility with current and future versions of Mac OS X.
ConsoleSync allows MIO Console to read the complete state of attached hardware automatically and without disruption of running audio. ConsoleSync auto loads the mixer configuration, complex signal processing chains, Monitor Controller settings, analog I/O configuration and window layout from the hardware.
I/O inserts streamline the use of external analog and digital processors within the MIO mixer. This new feature also allows inserting processors that are hosted on the computer directly within the signal flow of the MIO low-latency hardware mixer.
