Allen & Heath has released the latest version of its iLive firmware and Editor software, which includes a range of enhancements including support of the new iLive-R72 Control Surface, Dual-Rack input expansion, and 'SuperStrip' user view in the Editor control software.
The most significant new feature in v1.6 is the Dual-Rack system expansion, allowing up to 128 input channels to be used simultaneously. Two MixRacks can now be linked together via the Port B sockets, expanding the number of channels feeding the 32 mix buses, and enabling both racks to be controlled by one surface. The Master Rack is assigned to CH1-64 and the Slave Rack to CH65-128.
Another key feature in v1.6 is the ability to set the redundancy socket on Allen & Heath's ACE (Audio and Control over Ethernet) option card as a breakout to split to other iLive systems, offering a cost effective alternative to audio networking.
There is an array of feature enhancements to improve flexibility, including a Range Select patch function for easier set up of FOH/Monitor/Recording applications, and Safe mode for DCA master levels and mutes when recalling Scenes, ideal for festivals or events involving multiple band set ups.
V1.6 is available immediately and can be downloaded from www.ilive-digital.com.
