Fairlight introduces new Audio Post console

AES 2012 will see the debut of Fairlight QUANTUM, an audio post production system combining Fairlight’s hardware and software, recording, editing, mixing, plug-ins, MIDI and video with a 12 or 24 fader console. The QUANTUM control surface offers faders, switches, knobs and a jogger wheel, augmented with touch screen and mouse based functions. QUANTUM’s motorised faders combine with a dual row of rotary encoders to provide touch-triggered automation of all mixing parameters. QUANTUM includes an embedded Edit controller utilising Fairlight’s Picture Keys. These instantly adapt their appearance and function for easy navigation with fewer keystrokes. Fairlight’s new iCan technology, with drag-and-drop Layout Editor, enables audio engineers to design their own button layouts for specialised functions. QUANTUM is file format compatible with all Fairlight products, and provides workflows for SD and HD file formats. The CC-1 Media engine supports up to 192 disk recorder tracks, 230 mixing channels and two HD video tracks for 3D work. Included is support for up to 256 inputs and outputs, built-in EQ and dynamics for every channel, access to VST plug-ins and instruments, and mixing to multiple bus destinations up to 7.1
