Musikmesse 2010: Presonus release Virtual StudioLive software control
With Virtual StudioLive, leading audio hardware and software manufacturer fuses together their groundbreaking digital mixer and software control, announced at Musikmesse 2010.
StudioLive mixer owners will be delighted to learn that they can control the most-used StudioLive parameters directly from a computer, thanks to PreSonus? new Virtual StudioLive (VSL) software for the StudioLive 16.4.2 and StudioLive 24.4.2 digital mixers.
VSL provides bidirectional control of channel, subgroup, and main-bus levels; Fat Channel parameters; aux mixes; effects; and the graphic EQ.
You get a visual overview of your StudioLive settings so you can see, tweak, and organize them and can easily manage your presets and Scenes.
The software will be available for Mac OS X and Windows by the end of the first quarter of 2010 and will be a free download.
Drag different Fat Channel presets into each channel in seconds?or just drag part of a preset to the appropriate processor within the Fat Channel.
Assign channels to multiple buses and control mute and solo on every channel with a sweep of the mouse.
Load effects; adjust the Fat Channel?s gate, compressor, and EQ; and adjust the graphic EQ quickly and easily from your computer.
You can even load an entire mixer Scene by dragging it from a list that you see at all times.
You can store and organize a library of presets on your computer, reorder them to best fit your workflow for the gig, then transfer them to your mixer whenever you need them.
Create presets anywhere you can take a computer, then drag them to your preset pool next time you connect the computer to the StudioLive.
You can even drag presets out of the browser and email, IM, or disk-swap them with other StudioLive owners.
Since the control is bidirectional, fader moves and parameter changes made on the StudioLive are reflected in VSL, as well.
So, for example, you can set up the StudioLive the way you want it and then save your Scene or other presets in VSL.
Virtual StudioLive is a 64-bit application, uses very little CPU power, and is wicked fast.
Unlike previous efforts at computer-controlling a digital mixer, VSL has an innovative UI that can selectively drag preset components from sharable XML presets.
You can even drag an EQ into Skype so your friend can drop it on their StudioLive mixer.
You can access controls buried deep into the front panel and see all controls at once with 1 to 2 ms of screen latency over a very high speed FireWire link.
Not this is not a MIDI link requiring routing, setup configuration, and so on, as with some products.
Finally, if you connect a computer to the StudioLive via FireWire and set the computer up as a WiFi base, it?s easy to control VSL (and therefore the StudioLive) from a WiFi-enabled tablet PC, using VNC or RDC (Remote Desktop Control).
That allows you to tweak and mix from anywhere in the venue where you can maintain a WiFi link.Posted on 23 Mar 2010 15:38 to category : Instruments News
