InnovaSon will showcase the compact, lightweight digital mixing console, Sy48 (pictured), at AES, booth #1010. A variant of the Sy40 console, the Sy48 is suited for mixing front of house or monitors, and in fixed installations, such as broadcast trucks, radio studios, theaters or houses of worship.
As a stand-alone console, the Sy48 may be equipped with up to six 8-channel audio cards and is typically configured with 48 local inputs (32 mic, 16 line) and 32 local outputs (16 processed, 16 line). The optional Stage Box can move 48 inputs to stage while keeping 16 local line inputs available at the console location. For engineers who want to run their I/O and DSP card externally from the control surface, such as OB trucks and theaters, the LEM (Local External Mix Box) option allows for up to eight 8-channel audio cards to be housed in a 19-inch 7RU mix box with auto-switching power supplies.
The Sy48 features 16 channels of local I/O for buses and inserts and 32 freely assignable buses. The control surface’s 48 faders are user-configurable for use as inputs, VCAs, groups, buses, aux, XFAD and matrix, etc.
The latest version of InnovaSon's operating system, Sensoft, Version 9, added new hardware control and software features to both the Sy80 and Sy48. These include 16 internal processes for outputs, routing of processed groups and aux to matrix or master, 16 external inserts on buses, delay on inputs and enhanced show software with new Q/Page display and control for theater applications.
