Allen & Heath will be showing the new PA12 mixer. Rackmountable or stand-alone, the PA12 offers eight mono and two stereo channels. Also showing will be iDR-4, a 4-input, 4-output digital processor with additional 2-input, 2-output, dual-function monitor channels.

There will also be three new products in the accompanying series of PL remote-controller panels. PL-7 is a stand-alone or surface-mounted LCD panel, which, using the PL-Anet interface on CAT-5 cable and connectors, enables remote display of status information and text messages that can be stored in the recallable memory settings. The PL-7 can be embedded with PL-3 or PL-4 wall plates, allowing programmable control from a single unit.

PL-8 is a 4-input, 4-output logic control panel mounted on a wall plate that can be connected to PL-Anet. It is designed to interface external systems such as alarm systems, juke boxes, screens and lights.

To provide even more flexibility for the remote control of iDRs using PL-Anet, the PL-9 hub has been introduced. It is a 1U rack- or desk-mount unit that provides up to seven individual connections to chains of PL devices, simplifying wiring and eliminating the need for complex daisy-chaining.

The ML range of VCA live sound mixing desks is also being extended. Further stereo option models of the ML4000 and ML3000 have been introduced to provide an additional four or eight stereo channels to handle multistereo source applications.

Allen & Heath recently launched a valve option card for its Xone:V6 rotary mixer, as well as two additional modules have been developed: the EQ Isolator and V6 Crossfader unit. The EQ module is a dual, 3-band stereo isolator to provide variable attenuation of low, mid and high frequencies. The module, a 1U rack unit with six stereo inputs/outputs, connects to the Xone:V6 channel insert points and shares the V6 power supply. The Crossfader rack module adds crossfading capability to the Xone:V6, allowing the user to select any input to either side of the crossfader when required. Utilizing a Penny & Giles conductive plastic crossfader and high-performance voltage-controlled attenuators, the module interfaces with the Xone:V6 via channel insert points.
