At AES, Solid State Logic introduced new enhancements to its XL, Avant Plus, MT Production and Aysis Air Plus consoles. The improvements include a new scoring system for the XL 9000 K Series, the new Avant Plus SP designed specifically for short-form post applications, a revamped MT Production console for mobile studio applications, and Dolby DP570 control integration for its Aysis Air Plus and MT Production consoles.

Other benefits to the XL 9000 K Series include enhancements to the performance and display of the regional Fader Trim function and new Total Recall and faders display features.

The new Avant Plus SP is a compact configuration Avant console package, designed specifically for short-form post applications. New control surface features allow up to 192 mix inputs to be controlled from a 16-fader console. New interface options allow the mixer to control and edit external workstations without leaving the surround listening sweet spot. The SP comes with integrated nonlinear automation and comprehensive surround monitoring.

The MT Production console adds virtual bays, which allow very small control surfaces to access all 96 in-line channels from the surround listening sweet spot, while new third-party integration tools permit control and viewing of external workstations from the console’s center section.

Finally, Solid State Logic announced that it joined the Dolby E Partner Program and introduced Dolby DP570 control integration for its Aysis Air Plus and MT Production consoles. The Dolby DP570 Multichannel Audio Tool offers a method to monitor the effects of metadata on program content produced for Dolby Digital transmission. Dolby E enables broadcasters to distribute multichannel and multilanguage audio around their facilities using existing infrastructures.
