Allen & Heath GS-R24Allen & Heath has released a firmware and driver update for the GS-R24 recording console, enhancing the mixer’s HUI emulation for Pro Tools. Its ability to combine tracking, conversion, DAW control, analogue mixdown, summing and monitor routing targets usein modern commercial and project studios.

New controls available on the desk runnung the update include bank swap, single/multiple track selection, marker insertion and navigation, toggling between Mix and Edit view, and three jog-wheel functions (fast forward/rewind, scrub and shuttle).

The cursor buttons can now operate in three different modes: Navigation mode to move the cursor across region boundaries, Zoom mode to control horizontal and vertical waveform zoom, and Selection mode to adjust ‘in’ and ‘out’ points or move the selection to a different track. Soft Midi 1 and 2 buttons control and display the mute and track arm status of selected tracks. Similarly, Midi 3-7 buttons control and display the automation mode of the selected tracks, making it possible to switch quickly between Read, Write, Touch, Latch or Off.

Users also benefit from a range of enhancements to the FireWire interface driver, including support of Mountain Lion and Windows 8 operating systems.

‘The firmware equips the GS-R24 with additional control that enables the highest possible integration with Pro Tools ever achieved by an analogue mixer at this price point,’ says A&H Product Specialist, Nicola Beretta. ‘It’s like having a dedicated HUI controller embedded in the analogue heart of GS-R24. You press a Channel Select button, and you get instant access to all key functions in the master section.’

Existing GS-R24 users can update their hardware with this new firmware.
