Allen and Heath have today released their new GLD Remote app, the digital mixing system controller unveiled at NAMM 2013, providing a comprehensive suite of mixing controls for remote wireless applications using the iPad or the iPad Mini
GLD Remote connects to the GLD-80 mixer on a wireless network and gives the user instant access to any of the mixers channel faders and mutes, DCA faders and mutes, image controls, aux sends and assignments as well as channel input and output processing, mic-pre control and full metering. Whereas most other apps on the market offer limited control over the channel processing, GLD Remote gives control of high pass filters, gates, parametric and graphic EQ, compressors and input/output delays.
R&D director, Rob Clark, commented: “GLD Remote unlocks comprehensive wireless control of processing and mixes resident in the GLD-80, ranging from monitor mix stage setup, venue roaming and PA tweaking, and secondary control applications for fixed installs. During set up, engineers can walk around a venue and individually mute or apply level, processing and delay changes to the PA, and discreetly mix from anywhere in the venue during the show, whilst monitor engineers will appreciate being able to balance monitors from the musician’s position on the stage.”
This looks set to be a very useful app, it’s available for free from the Allen and Heath website Our full review is coming soon!
