Equipment maker Lawo has announced what it calls a “major” system update to its Lawo MKII mc2 console line.
Version 5 of this “major upgrade to functionality and operation” introduces AutoMix. Lawo describes AutoMix as automatically balancing “mono, stereo and surround-sources for a variety of different applications. For talk shows or panel discussions, for example, AutoMix ensures users never miss a fader raise and always have the right mic open in time.” The company says that this does not subtract from DSP power per channel.
Also added are mxGUI faders. Lawo says that this is a touchscreen-optimized software feature for remote monitoring and control of the mc2 consoles.
A control system integration interface called Ember+ has also been introduced along with the usual tweaks that accompany system upgrades.
