Az RSG bemutatta az S-4000 távvezérlő szoftverét Mac-reLondon, September 2011 – At PLASA, Roland Systems Group announced the upcoming availability of the Mac version of their S-4000 Remote Control Software (RCS). The S-4000RCS is the setup and control mechanism for their popular Personal Mixing and Digital Snake systems when a Roland V-Mixer is not part of the configuration. This software enables the award-wining M-48 Personal Mixers and other Digital Snake products to be used stand-alone or with any other console in any audio environment.
The S-4000 RCS software controls all the various setup, configuration and monitoring parameters of the M-48 Personal Mixing System when connected via any Digital Snake input unit or the S-MADI REAC Bridge. The S-MADI Bridge is a bi-directional signal converter between REAC and MADI that enables connectivity between MADI equipped digital audio mixers/systems to any of Roland’s REAC products.
When used with digital snake I/O units, the RCS is used to control the onboard preamp, phantom power, channel setup, etc. The software also enables control of Roland’s REAC Merge technology. This technology allows up to four Digital Snake heads to be merged into a REAC stream where the master device recognizes it as single REAC slave unit. This important technology enables distribution of multiple input/output units around a location, venue or stage for flexible point-to-point configurations.
The Mac S-4000 RCS is expected to be released December 2011 and will be a free download on the website through the software updates page.
About the M-48 Personal Mixing System
For the performing musician wanting the best possible sound quality and flexibility in their individual stage monitor mix, the M-48 offers control over 40 audio sources that can be easily managed in 16 assignable stereo groups. The playing experience is enhanced with level/pan/solo/3-band EQ on each group, high quality built-in reverb for a more appealing sound, ambient mic for better communication with band members as well as physical inputs and outputs for multiple headphones, wedges and powered monitors, interfacing with iPods, metronomes and external recording devices.
REAC (Roland Ethernet Audio Communication) is the audio transport protocol developed by Roland to meet the Pro-Audio market’s need for a point-to-point 24 bit/ 96kHz, low latency digital audio transport for live sound use and commercial applications. The REAC protocol is capable of transmitting 40 channels of 24bit / 96kHz audio over inexpensive Cat5e cable and can be easily split using standard gigabit switches making it easy and very cost effective to have lossless all-digital splits of the stage audio for FOH, monitor, broadcast and recording locations. Products using REAC technology are installed today in many venues and have been used for high profile events worldwide.
