Allen & Heath announced it is shipping new interface cards for the iLive and iLive-T series digital consoles

New cards include the RAB2 remote audio interface card host, the Mini Multi-Out Card for ADAT, Aviom, iDR 8-bus and Hearbus, the EtherSound Network Card, Allen & Heath’s proprietary ACE (Audio and Control over Ethernet) Card for 64 channel bi-directional link, and the new MADI 64 Channel Multi-link Card.

RAB2 is a remote audio card, designed to enable iLive digital mixing systems to work with a variety of common audio interface and networking standards. The new module has two front-loading slots for plug-in options, which are auto-detected by the system firmware. The first port allows alternative standards to connect the iLive MixRacks and Control Surfaces, while the second port is used for system expansion, such as linking to secondary FOH/monitors consoles, feeding broadcast mixers, and record sends.

Allen & Heath has also introduced the MADI 64 option card. The new module provides two 64-channel MADI links, which can be independently routed in blocks of 8 connections, or for safety, configured as a primary and redundant pair. Either of the two ports can be set as a sync master. There is bi-directional patchbay routing for the MixRack’s 64 inputs and 32 mixes.

As with other audio interfaces, MADI channels can be configured typically as mic preamp digital splits, channel direct outs, insert points, or buss in or out feeds. The AUX connector can be used as a through connection of the MADI-1 inputs, or a split of the MADI-1 outputs; alternatively, it can function as word clock I/O for iLive-T systems without DARS.

To support the RAB2 module and all the iLive audio interface cards, Allen & Heath has released the latest update, Version 1.5, to the iLive and T Series firmware and Editor software.

The new RAB2 and interface cards are now available, and v1.5 of the iLive software can be downloaded from www.ilive-digital.com.
