Allen & Heath has added to its range of iPad apps with a new GLD digital mixing system controller tool – GLD Remote.
The app connects to the GLD-80 mixer on a wireless network and gives the user instant access to any of the mixer's channel faders and mutes; DCA faders and mutes; image controls; aux sends and assignments, as well as channel input and output processing; mic-pre control and full metering.
GLD Remote also offers control of high pass filters, gates, parametric and graphic EQ, compressors and input/output delays.
Other unique features include a real time analyser (RTA) to ring out monitors and EQ the PA, a facility to name and colour channel strips, custom layers with drag-and-drop strip set-up to suit any application, and a mix view where monitor engineers can keep both master levels and contributions under control in a single screen. Additionally, GLD Remote provides channel PFL control to enable the engineer to remotely listen to feeds using a wireless monitor system.
Allen & Heath R&D director, Rob Clark, commented: “GLD Remote unlocks comprehensive wireless control of processing and mixes resident in the GLD-80, ranging from monitor mix stage setup, venue roaming and PA tweaking, and secondary control applications for fixed installs.
"During set-up, engineers can walk around a venue and individually mute or apply level, processing and delay changes to the PA, and discreetly mix from anywhere in the venue during the show, while monitor engineers will appreciate being able to balance monitors from the musician’s position on the stage.”
