Roland Systems Group, which supplies the commercial and performance audio/video industries with application specific equipment, has issued a firmware update—the V1.5—for its M-480 V-Mixer console.
The firmware update continues a commitment to supporting users of V-Mixer Consoles, Roland says. The M-480, like the M-400, M-380, and M-300, is the central component in a V-Mixer System line featuring integrated “digital snakes,” multi-channel recording and a personal mixing system, the company says.
With a growing number of V-Mixer System installations in theater and broadcast markets, Roland says its engineers have packed the V1.5 with significant features including:
— Increased number of DCA’s from 8 to 24
— Scene fade function
— Increased delay time up to 1.2 seconds for broadcast and large outdoor applications
— Five new effect processors including multi-band compression/expansion and BOSS digital effect models
— Second order shelving on Lo and Hi EQ
— Mutually exclusive LR/C assignment for cross-matrixed linear array speaker configurations
— Delay setting in “samples”
— Monitor dimmer setting
