Metric Halo announces the immediate availability of MIO Console Version 5.6, a free software upgrade for all users of Mobile I/O audio interfaces, including the award-winning 2882, ULN-2, LIO-8 and ULN-8. Version 5.6 includes I/O inserts for accessing external hardware from within the MIO Mixer, ConsoleSync hardware/software synchronization technology, AAX ConsoleConnect plug-in for compatibility with Pro Tools 11, saving of system boot states and support for EuCon V. 3. In addition to these new features, V. 5.6 continues to improve stability and compatibility with current and future versions of Mac OS X.

ConsoleSync allows MIO Console to read the complete state of any attached hardware seamlessly, automatically and without any disruption of running audio. ConsoleSync auto loads the mixer configuration, complex signal processing chains, Monitor Controller settings, analog I/O configuration and window layout from the hardware.

Metric Halo states that with ConsoleSync, new users will experience a reduced learning curve for gaining access to the power of MIO Console. Experienced users can have MIO Console re-connect to the hardware with exact recall of the current hardware state and no disruption of audio. For Live Sound and monitoring applications this allows the user to disconnect and re-connect the computer or quit and launch MIO Console without being concerned about introducing dropouts to ongoing primary and backup recordings or to the monitoring paths for talent.

I/O inserts streamline the use of external analog and digital processors within the MIO mixer. This new feature also allows inserting processors that are hosted on the computer directly within the signal flow of the MIO low-latency hardware mixer. This enables the use of host-based reverbs and delays with greatly simplified routing.

A 30-day money-back guarantee backs Metric Halo’s hardware products so users can try them out in your studio with no risk. All products in the Mobile I/O family are discounted during the Metric Halo 2013 Summer Sale, which runs until September 15, 2013.
