At the Plasa 2009 trade show in the UK, mixer manufacturer Allen and Heath will commemorate the company’s 40th birthday by displaying a range of digital, analogue, radio-specific and DJ mixing technology.
Allen & Heath will also be exhibiting the new XB-14 compact radio broadcast mixer, which is equipped with a set of features specifically for broadcasters, including telco inputs for easy interfacing to telephone contributions, mic fader start-sensing for external connection and internal automatic muting of the speaker outputs, stereo channel start/cue outputs for CD deck transport control, multiple headphone outputs, and an additional stereo bus.
The company’s flagship iLive digital systems will also feature in the display, in addition to the company’s ZED analogue range, and renowned Xone DJ series.
The iLive digital series will form the centrepiece of the company’s stand (1-E9), at the exhibition.
Following the recent launch of RAB2, iLive’s latest remote audio card, it is now possible to mix and match the modular iLive hardware with the iLive-T fixed I/O mix racks and control surfaces, increasing hire inventory flexibility and system integration.
RAB2 enables iLive digital mixing systems to work with a variety of common audio interface and networking standards.
There will also be a selection of ZED compact USB-equipped mixers for live performance, recording and production, including the entry level ZED-14, ZED-22FX with in-house designed effects, a model from the versatile ZED 4 bus series, and the MIPA award-winning ZED-R16 Firewire recording mixer.
Allen and Heath products are distributed in the UAE by V.V. and Sons.
