WEST CHESTER, PA—Aviom
has announced the release of a major firmware upgrade for its Pro64® Series of digital snake and audio networking products. The software release, which is available for free download from Aviom’s website,
, includes support for
for Yamaha® digital consoles. With m-control, a user has direct access to the preamp settings on Aviom’s 6416m Mic Input Modules from the user interface of most Yamaha digital consoles outfitted with a 6416Y2 A-Net® Interface Card.
The m-control feature offers another control path for Aviom’s Pro64 Series mic pre. All settings on the 6416m can also be set from the device’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, Aviom’s product research and development manager, explains, “This is a feature we’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 they’ve wanted an even more streamlined workflow. Providing access to the preamp settings from the Yamaha console and through the console’s scenes is a tremendous timesaver for engineers.”
To utilize m-control, all Pro64 Series products must be updated to the m-control firmware.
