The update brings new features including control of the A164D Wall LCD and A168D Stage for networked audio in installations via the Dante 64@96 DMI, and support for the acclaimed DMI-KLANG, and more
The A164D Wall LCD, a 16-input/4-output I/O expander, and A168D Stage, a portable 16-input/8-output I/O expander, deliver all the connectivity of the original A164 Wall LCD and A168 Stage, but with the additional advantage of Dante connectivity. This not only adds the flexibility and familiarity of the Dante network protocol, but also means that consultants and integrators can take advantage of existing network infrastructure to drop I/O anywhere on the network.
The DMI-KLANG takes KLANG:fabrik’s immersive in-ear mixing core and rebuilds with today’s latest FPGA technology to deliver immersive mixes of 64 inputs for 16 musicians. This is the highest input count of any KLANG product to date, with a processing latency of just a quarter of a millisecond. The DMI-KLANG connects directly to DiGiCo consoles’ internal audio stream without any additional hardware I/O overhead.
The release of V2.6 also sees the addition of an RTA (Real Time Analyzer) added to the channel EQ view of S-Series consoles, which can be toggled to be shown/hidden using the button in the top bar. The RTA meters are taken post-EQ, meaning that any adjustments in EQ are reflected in the RTA’s metering.
Under the global scopes view (accessible from the Snapshot list view), there is now a separate scope for Control Group names, which enables Control Group names and Channel names (for input, aux, group and matrix channels) to be selected separately. Both sets of name scopes will follow that state of the “name” scope for sessions created in older software versions, which means that functionality remains unchanged.
