Software Release 4.5 for AURUS and CRESCENDO
Las Vegas/Frankfurt, April 2018: Stage Tec will present at NAB (N1424) and prolight+sound (3.1 G83) some new audio processing features for AURUS and CRESCENDO, which are included in the new Software Release 4.5.
It is now possible to activate a bypass function for each individual aux VCA in all AURUS and CRESCENDO systems. This feature, exclusive to Stage Tec consoles, is in demand for rehearsals with live event and sound reinforcement feeds.
Another new feature concerns VCA group hierarchy. A channel can now be assigned to several VCA groups, and additional groupings can also be made. There are a total of 30 VCA groups to choose from.
Due to popular demand, the ITU-R 775-3-compliant automatic stereo downmix with level correction is available when routing 5.1 sources to stereo groups. This feature is provided for the AURUS and CRESCENDO and is mainly used in broadcast.
Another feature is the internal tone generator, which can now be accessed in the centre section of AURUS and CRESCENDO. This means it is possible to configure the mixing console even if the NEXUS audio network is not yet connected. This feature makes life much easier for broadcast users (e.g. in OB vans).
The newly developed M/S decoder is now available automatically on input channels in all Stage Tec mixing consoles. An integrated upmix process enables decoded M/S signals or stereo signals to be mixed automatically to multichannel buses. This feature is of particular interest to post-production users.
Meet Stage Tec at NAB (N1424) and prolight+sound (3.1 G83)!
