Stagetec presented the successor to the Aurus, the Aurus Platinum, at the Tonmeistertagung 2014 in Cologne, Germany.
The new mixing console features a neat matrix mixer, DAW control and the ability to use meter bridge screens for external video signals in parallel. It is also possible to access Dspecialists' Isostem automatic upmix algorithm via the Nexus that comes with the mixing console.
The unit has a unique control concept which is predicated on fast operation: 22 rotaries per channel strip and up to 96 channel strips with real-time switching and display give direct access to all channels and parameters. A touch pad integrated into the control surface replaces external input devices such as a keyboard and mouse, and facilitates fast and easy access to the control software.
Additional improvements are also added to familiar features such as scene automation and the spill function. Deep integration into the Nexus audio network provides users with unlimited connectivity and an unsurpassed variety of audio formats, while patented noiseless microphone inputs and very high-precision calculations for all DSP and mixing functions promise sound that is clear and transparent.
