32 input 16 output remote dsp engine/stage rack. Include Ace for connection to control surface. Includes Pl-Anet network port for remote fader panel integration.Port B slot for optional interface cards. 6U rack space unit.
iLive-T puts the audio and its processing right where it is needed, near to the sources on stage. The MixRack houses the mic preamps, sends, DSP and digital snake interface, which is controlled at the mix position.
The Mix Engine
Both MixRacks feature the same iDR-64 RackExtra DSP engine employed in the flagship iLive Series, providing full processing and mixing for 64 channels and 32 configurable mix buses as well as 8 stereo FX engines based on emulations of popular industry classics. Imagine the gear needed for an equivalent analogue system to provide 64 gates and de-essers, 96 compressors and limiters, 112 fully parametric EQs, 96 delays, 32 graphic EQs and 8 FX units!
The MixRacks differ only in the number of input and output sockets available. The smaller iDR-32 provides 32 mic/line preamps and 16 XLR outputs, while the iDR-48 has 48 preamps and 24 outputs. Built-in patchbays enable the user to split, cross-patch and map channels and sends, requiring fewer sockets than equivalent fixed architecture consoles in many applications. A new high quality mic preamp with 80dB/1dB resolution gain range, exceptionally low latency and optimised audio signal path ensure the superb performance and sound quality for which iLive has become renowned.
Networking and Distributed Control
The MixRack and T surface are connected over a single CAT5 up to 120m long (depending on cable) using Allen & Heath's proprietary ACET digital snake - an affordable, point-to-point multi-channel bi-directional audio and control link. An option slot (Port B) allows a plug-in card to be added for more audio networking possibilities, such as digital mic splitting, audio distribution and digital recording. The MixRack can also be controlled using a networked PC or laptop running iLive Editor software, MIDI, the Allen & Heath PL Series of remote controllers, and, it is fully compatible with the surfaces from the flagship iLive range.
