Roland Systems Group has announced new software for its range of compact digital audio consoles, expanding functionality and increasing the scope of interconnectivity with devices using V-Link, Roland’s proprietary technology which provides control of video equipment via audio gear.

Roland M-300One of the most important features of the new version software is the extra provisions made for integration of the console with Roland’s M-48 Personal Mixing System.

An engineer’s monitor function has been added to the M-48 Manager software on the M-300, M-380 and M-400 digital consoles, enabling designation of an M-48 unit from which the engineer can monitor and control the balance of each musician’s M-48 monitor mix. The musician’s group mix can also be controlled from the engineer’s own M-48. A Mix Option has been added, ensuring that only sources assigned to a group will be mixed to the M-48’s main buses.

‘The new software upgrades for V-Mixers and M-48 allow FOH and monitor engineers to add their expertise and value in assisting musicians using Roland personal mixing,’ explains RSG Product Specialist, Simon Kenning. ‘This provides a high level of confidence for the musician or performer, who knows that if necessary the engineer can assist in making their mix that much better. Consequently a musician feels much more comfortable on stage, and can really focus and concentrate on his performance. This continues to make the M-48 the best and most advanced personal mixing system in the industry.’

The new software also increases the number of V-Link remote sources to 16, allowing use of Roland’s new flagship V-1600HD vision mixer via V-Link. Other upgrades to the M Series consoles include additional input/output patchbay operation via the RS232C, and the addition of pink and white noise to the oscillator.
