Allen & Heath’s Avantis console expands 96kHz mixer range
Allen & Heath has revealed its new 96kHz digital mixer, Avantis, the third model based on the company's XCVI FPGA engine.
Avantis is a 64 channel/42 configurable bus console, with twin full HD touchscreens and processing from the company's flagship dLive mixing system.
Avantis can be paired with Allen & Heath’s 48 in / 16 out GX4816 audio expander and is part of the company’s Everything I/O ecosystem.
The console is also compatible with Allen & Heath's range of ME Personal Mixers and IP hardware remote controllers. For local I/O, Avantis is equipped with 12 XLR analogue inputs, 12 XLR analogue outputs, and AES (Stereo in, 2x Stereo Out). Two additional I/O Ports mean the console can make use of the full range of current dLive option cards, including Dante (64x64 and 128x128), Waves, gigaACE and MADI.
Avantis has processing tools including compressors, EQs and Allen & Heath's RackExtra FX units (12 slots). Upgrading to dPack expands Avantis with additional dLive processing including the Dyn8 dynamics engine (up to 16 instances), DEEP Compressors, and the Dual-Stage Valve preamp. dPack purchasers will automatically receive all future DEEP and FX updates free of charge.
