Get hands on with Crest Audio’s mixer at BPM PRO8 September 2016
Crest Audio, a division of Peavey Commercial Audio, will be showcasing its latest Tactus digital mixing system at BPM PRO, from September 11-12 at the NEC in Birmingham.
Visitors will be able to get their hands on with Crest Audio’s latest modular touch-screen system, which includes The Waves eMotion LV1 mixer application that runs on a Windows PC or Mac with one, two or three multi-touch screens.
Utilising Waves Soundgrid audio network protocol, the Crest Audio Tactus systems comprises of three hardware units, the Tactus.FOH, Tactus.Stage and Tactus.Control, with each addressing the input and output, monitoring and control, plus synchronisation requirements of audio signals at the stage and front of house points.
The system had its first full field test at a recent live music event staged by UK distributor Midwich and pre-orders are being accepted for the first time.
The Tactus hardware is comprised of the Tactus.FOH, the audio processing core for the system, and the Tactus.Stage, a 32-in/16-out remote stage box. The modular capability of the Tactus Digital Mixing System, which interconnects via standard Gigabit Ethernet cabling and an internal Gigabit switch, allows multiple configurations in a range of channel counts to best suit each application.
James Kennedy, operations manager for Peavey Commecial Audio EMEA says: “Working closely with Waves, we believe that Tactus offers a professional sound mixing platform that is fitting for today’s digital demands, with features that will benefit all users, from the workplace to a live music venue. We’ve made connectivity and networking simple, with USB, Ethernet and MIDI all available.”
