Following the recent launch of the ADX5D Axient Digital Dual-Channel Portable Wireless Receiver, Shure has updated ADX5D’s firmware (to v1.3.26) to include third-party integration and control with portable mixers and recorders from Sound Devices and Aaton Digital.

Shure ADX5D Axient Digital v1.3.26The new integration enables sound mixers control and monitor the ADX5D from their mix position, including scanning and deploying frequencies to receiver channels, adjusting receiver output gain and monitoring transmitter battery life.

‘With the introduction of third-party integration and control, our goal is to bring the superior RF performance, spectral efficiency, and transparent audio quality of Axient Digital to more audio professionals who are pushing boundaries in the film and broadcast industry,’ says Shure Associate Product Manager, Adi Neves.

Notably, the latest ADX5D firmware includes Party Dial to allow users to quickly switch between RF channels from a pre-selected group of frequencies, and an Optimised Menu Structure that places the most used features within a few clicks of one another. The Shortcut Menu has also been improved, providing rapid access to critical features and menus.

ADX5D’s third-party integration and control is currently supported on the Aaton Digital CantarX3, CantarMini Mixer-Recorders, and Hydra Interface System, and Sound Devices’ Scorpio, 888, and 883 Mixer-Recorders with SL-2 and SL-6 SuperSlot Wireless Modules.

‘ADX5D fits right into our Hydra system and communicates with our Cantar recorder-mixers,’ says Aaton Digital owner and CEO, Jacques Delacoux. ‘Our products have been used successfully for the sound of many of the last Oscars movies, notably Sound of Metal, Oscar winner for best sound 2021, awarded to Philippe Bladh.’

‘Sound Devices is excited to have collaborated with our friends at Shure on SuperSlot integration for the Shure ADX5D receiver and 8-Series mixer-recorders,’ adds Gary Trenda, RF Applications Engineer at Sound Devices. ‘We’re encouraged by the continued adoption of the SuperSlot protocol by manufacturers across our industry. Having easy access to commonly used Axient Digital functions on the color screen of the 8-Series will streamline system set up and workflows. Being able to quickly scan, view signal quality with history, monitor battery life, and adjust settings makes the 8-Series and Axient Digital a powerful combo.’
