Smart AV introduces radical audio console

Elite consoles are available in 48- and 96-channel variants.

Smart AV has commenced delivery of its new Elite Series of ergonomic control surfaces for audio mixing consoles, with shipments to the United States, Germany, Japan, and Southeast Asia.

The consoles were shown for the first time at major trade shows last fall. The ARC design offers improved ergonomic efficiency over traditional and assignable control surfaces. Its control surface gives users a choice in signal processing, and can be configured with several digital processing engines including Apple’s Logic Pro 7; the Pyramix Virtual Studio from Merging Technology; and the Klotz Digital VADIS system.

Elite consoles are available in 48- and 96-channel variants. The design features a physical arc that spans the console; is within reach of the operator; and is fitted with touch sensors. By touching the strip, the desired channel and the channels surrounding it immediately appear at the operator's fingertips, as though the operator had instantaneously moved in front of those channels on a traditional long console.
