Allen & Heath Avantis 64-Channel Digital Mixer



Mix With The Best Using The Allen & Heath Avantis 64-Channel Digital Mixer

IT'S A SMALL STEP TO A GIANT LEAP

The third mixer based on the 96kHz XCVI FPGA engine, Avantis puts all of Allen & Heath's next-generation technology in a 64 channel/42 configurable bus console, with dual Full HD touchscreens, a super-flexible workflow with Continuity UI, extensive I/O options, add-on processing from their flagship dLive mixing system, and a rugged full metal chassis.

IT'S YOUR MIXER SO MIX YOUR WAY

With a massive 206 square inches of screen space operating at a crisp 1080p Full HD resolution, Continuity UI allows you to see and instantly interact with more of what matters, enabling a seamless connection between the physical controls and the displays. The faders react on touch to immediately highlight the active channels for instant visual feedback. The channel rotaries let you work gains or pans, then at the touch of a button, dynamically fold the display to show EQ or compressor parameters across the whole bank. Each screen also features a FastGrab tab on the right-hand side, giving you split-second access to key freely-assignable parameters like aux sends, EQ, compressor and FX on the currently selected or specific channel. The whole system is set up to dynamically surface the information you need at any moment and put control right at your fingertips.
