Transient Signal ProcessorAllen & Heath has released v1.4 firmware for its GLD digital mixer range, introducing a suite of dynamic processors and enhancements to scene management, including crossfading and embedded scene recalls.

Version1.4 features two multiband compressors (three and four bands) and a four-band dynamic equaliser, recently developed for the latest update to the iLive digital series. It also includes Transient Controller, an model of the industry-standard transient signal processor.

In response to user requests and useful for theatre production, v1.4 provides the ability to set a crossfade time of up to 20s per each scene, which ensures a smooth transition by automating the levels and pans when the scene is recalled. Also new to scene management is the ability to recall multiple scenes. A delay time can be set for each embedded recall, and scenes can be recalled on other mixers on the network via TCP/IP (for example, when using a separate console for submixing).

Dedicated Midi strips can now be assigned anywhere across the four layers for simple DAW control over Ethernet. This allows direct assignment or ‘learning’ of the strip fader, rotary and keys in the DAW. Alternatively the free DAW Control driver for Mac OS-X can translate the default Midi messages to HUI or Mackie Control protocols.

Other improvements in v1.4 include 12/18/24 dB/oct variable slope on HPF filters, refinements to the I/O patching screens, and the addition of Soft Keys to the accompanying GLD Remote and GLD OneMix iPad apps.

Version 1.4 also makes GLD the first multilingual mixing console, as the touchscreen interface and help function can now be displayed in different languages. Spanish and Mandarin to be available soon as a free download.

GLD v1.4 is available to download from the Aleen & Heath website.
