Allen & Heath has released the latest version of its iLive firmware and Editor software, V1.8.

The software includes support of the new xDR-16 expander hardware, MixPad app, and a range of new features, including a new scene safes system, additional channel and mix compressor modes, greater I/O FX capabilities, a speaker matrix rack processor, third party TCP/IP control functionality, and output socket polarity.

 

V1.8’s main new feature is a scene safes system. It is designed to allow users to set up scene recall safes with a combination of channel processing, mix processing, faders, gains, mutes and DCA’s.

 

More Compressor types have been added under manual and auto modes. These include ‘peak-based’ manual, ‘RMS-based’ manual, ‘Punchbag’ and ‘Opto’ response styles. There is also a parallel path compression mode with dry feed for ‘New York’ compression techniques.

 

The iLive FX system is said to now have greater I/O routing capability, allowing things such as cascading FX racks, FX patching direct to outputs and patching to matrix inputs. Furthermore, each FX unit now has extended I/O functionality, allowing new I/O FX types, such as the new Speaker Matrix Processor, the company says.

 

The Speaker Matrix Processor FX employs a phased cross-matrix to provide a 3, 4 or 5 speaker output array from a stereo source. Mutes and delays are provided on all speaker outputs, and sub crossover filters and source selection are designed to enable sub management.

 

V1.8 is also designed to allow third party control over TCP/IP to enable the use of touch panels and controllers - as well as Allen & Heath’s PL series wallplates to control elements of the iLive system. The release also adds MIDI control capability to iLive Editor, allowing the connection of external MIDI controllers to the PC.

 

iLive Firmware and Editor software are available as free downloads from www.allen-heath.com.
