Stage Tec AVATUS Software Release 1.12: Innovative Two-User Operation

In Audio, Audio Product News, home_page, Product News, Web Articlesby Media

Stage Tec, the Berlin-based manufacturer of professional audio technology, introduces interesting new features with the latest software release 1.12 for the AVATUS IP console. One of the most innovative new features is simultaneous operation of AVATUS with two sound engineers. The virtual division of a console, which can also consist of several physical buckets, is currently offered by no other console on the market. The division takes place in blocks of 12 control strips each, which make up one cassette. Both sound engineers have unlimited and independent access to various functions: They have their own SOLO and PFL functionalities at their disposal, each in its own control room. The global layer switching, function selection and synchronous scrolling of lists (Aux, N-1, groups, EQ bands, …) only affect the respective user area. Even functions such as spill, the temporary link function, or Aux-/N-1 to faders (including auto lists) can be altered independently by both sound engineers. Furthermore, both users can access all audio channels simultaneously and work with the same channels (e.g. Ambience). 

With the new software release, AVATUS performance and response times are enhanced significantly. And the talk functionality of the two command paths can now be assigned to any user button.
