WEST CHESTER, PAâ€”Aviom has announced the release of a major firmware upgrade for its Pro64Â® Series of digital snake and audio networking products. The software release, which is available for free download from Aviomâ€™s website, www.aviom.com, includes support for m-controlâ„¢ for YamahaÂ® digital consoles. With m-control, a user has direct access to the preamp settings on Aviomâ€™s 6416m Mic Input Modules from the user interface of most Yamaha digital consoles outfitted with a 6416Y2 A-NetÂ® Interface Card.
The m-control feature offers another control path for Aviomâ€™s Pro64 Series mic pre. All settings on the 6416m can also be set from the deviceâ€™s front panel, as well as controlled remotely from any point in the network with the MCS handheld controller. A single MCS can be used for up to 64 channels of mic pre control, and multiple control points can be set in a single network. All three control methods can be combined freely in the same system, allowing system designers and operators a range of choices.
Ray Legnini, Aviomâ€™s product research and development manager, explains, â€œThis is a feature weâ€™ve been asked for since the release of the 6416m and 6416Y2. Users have raved about the sound quality and simplicity of the Pro64 system, but theyâ€™ve wanted an even more streamlined workflow. Providing access to the preamp settings from the Yamaha console and through the consoleâ€™s scenes is a tremendous timesaver for engineers.â€?
To utilize m-control, all Pro64 Series products must be updated to the m-control firmware.
