GLD mixer app

What is it?A software suite offering all of the key facilities of the GLD digital mixer with the ability to display multiple information panels simultaneously. DetailsAvailable in both PC and Mac versions, GLD Editor provides a GUI simulation of the mixer surface. Similar to the A&H’s iLive Editor software, GLD Editor allows users to easily configure show settings or make changes to existing shows online or offline to save and upload later. TCP/IP connectivity makes live mixing and processing possible over CAT5 or WiFi, so different tasks can be managed in the Editor software and the GLD mixer surface simultaneously. For example, monitors can be tweaked on stage using a wireless laptop while another engineer runs the FoH sound check from the mixer. Up to 16 devices may be connected to a GLD system with multiple computers running Editor and multiple iPads running the existing GLD Remote app in use at the same time.In Offline mode, users can prepare a channel plot and surface layout in advance or edit guest engineer Show files before transferring them to a USB key to load into a GLD at the venue. In Online mode, a second 'virtual' control surface is added to the GLD system providing simultaneous control. Editor can connect as either a master by uploading current settings to the mixer, or a slave by downloading the current mixer settings. The GUI has been designed to mimic every aspect of the GLD mixer; the main Surface view allows for quick mixing functions, while screen navigation keys open up a new window which replicates the GLD touchscreen interface. Processing views, meters, FX control, I/O patch, quick channel strip labeling, drag ‘n’ drop of surface strip layout, access to memories and preferences are all included, coupled with a navigation tab by layer/bank or channel type making it easy to select a channel without going back to the main window.And another thing...GLD Editor is available for download and as part of a new GLD firmware update, V1.3, which also includes added functionality such as ganging of trims, output channels available as sources in the patch-bay for input channels and External Input on mix channels.
