InnovaSon’s new Sensoft 8.1 software package adds new features and flexibility to existing Sy40 consoles, including the ability to freely configure the most suitable console layout and I/O arrangement for any application.

New InnovaSon consoles featuring the benefits of Sensoft 8.1 will be sold as Sy40-8 units. However, the upgrade kit, comprising software, hardware, manuals and documentation, for existing Sy40 and Compact Live users is also sold separately.

The new features of Sensoft 8.1 include InnovaSon's Xfad™ (expanded fader) mode for inputs and buses, and free assignment of VCAs and freely configurable fader layouts. Groups, auxiliary buses and master buses may be separately configured as mono, stereo, LCR and LCR+M. Matrix assignments offer direct input routing, and the monitor bus supports three output circuits. The automation features have been enhanced with the addition of MIDI program change, MIDI timecode, crossfade, mute control and fader-start functionality.

With Sensoft 8.1, the Sy40, Compact or new Sy40-8 digital console will have 48 input channels and 26 output mix buses, plus an additional two monitor buses. As a stand-alone console, the Sy40-8 may be fitted with a mix of audio I/O cards with a choice of seven modules to custom-tailor the system for any application. With the optional digital Stage Box, 48 active inputs may be selected from a possible 72 mic/line inputs with 26 buses from a possible 48 outputs.

Full processing is available on all inputs, including variable low-cut, noise gate, compressor/limiter and 4-band EQ. Output processing on selected modules includes 8-band parametric EQ, compressor/limiter, noise gate and delay.
