Soundcraft Ui Series digital consoleSoundcraft has released an a free firmware update for its Ui Series digital consoles, adding features and extending browser and device compatibility.

Soundcraft engineers considered feedback from the user community and have included many of the most requested features within this firmware update. Most notably, the software now supports Microsoft's latest Edge browser. In addition, the Ui12 now includes stereo recording features, previously found only on the Ui16.

The introduction of a more secure password-protected Access Limitation System now gives mix engineers the comfort of assigning secure access privileges to other users. A wide range of limitations are possible, giving complete flexibility on what areas of the mixer are opened up to individual user control.

A new Sync ID feature has also been added, allowing users to maintain channel Sync across multiple browser windows, on different displays or even devices. On large screens or multiple screens, users can open multiple GUI Edit windows (EQ, dynamics, and FX) and have them maintain channel sync. Users can select a channel on any of these pages and instantly view and control all EQ, dynamics and FX values across devices and displays.

Further enhancements include MoreMe Portrait On/Off mode, Enable/Disable SSID broadcast, Channel Mute now mutes auxes in PFL mode, and new global pre-fade Aux Send Point Selection and AFS2 preset manager. Mac Address visibility in Network Settings, a local user settings Preset Manager, Reset Local User Settings as a default feature and host of other optimisations and issue updates are also included in the firmware update.

The Soundcraft Ui Series mixers feature cross-platform compatibility with iOS, Android, Windows, Mac OS and Linux devices, and can use up to ten control devices simultaneously. In addition, the Ui12 and Ui16 each feature built-in signal processing from dbx, DigiTech and Lexicon, including dbx AFS2 and DigiTech Amp Modeling. Both models feature fully recallable and remote-controlled mic gain and phantom power, along with fiur-band parametric EQ, high-pass filter, compressor, de-esser and noise gate on input channels.

‘The HTML5 control GUI, coupled with stunning onboard DSP from dbx, Digitech and Lexicon has made the Ui12 and Ui16 the mixers of choice for many customers,’ says Harman Professional Solutions Product Manager, Danny Olesh. ‘The latest firmware extends the Ui12 and Ui16 mixers’ features and compatibility even further.’
