[AES] Fairlight Xstream
Fairlight will debut the Xstream, a new tactile, compact desktop control surface for Fairlight’s CC-1 Media Engine at AES in San Francisco.
The Xstream is suited for audio and video engineers working in the post-production fields of advertising, TV production and music project recording.
It features tactile control– no mouse, tabs or drop down menus – through a control surface. The picture keys are designed to self-label instantly. Fairlight’s new iCan (Integrated Control Across Network) technology with drag-and-drop layout editor allows audio engineers to design their own button layout for specialized functions. This technology allows for modification of the layout of the functions on the keys as well as allows the controller to be used with other applications. Up to 24 faders can also be added in blocks of six to increase the mixing capability of Xstream.
The control surface includes QWERTY functionality for naming, and has a footprint smaller than a 17” laptop.
The device features editing, SD/HD integrated video, mixing, plug-ins, file transfer, recording... in one system. As a part of the Fairlight range it is file format compatible and lets you work with most SD and HD file formats. The CC-1 media engine can be configured with up to 192 disk recorder tracks, 230 mixing channels and 2 HD video tracks for 3D work. The Xstream supports up to 256 audio inputs and outputs, built-in EQ and dynamics for every channel, integration of VST plug-ins and instruments, and mixing to multiple bus destinations up to 7.1 wide.
