With a massive 206 square inches of screen space operating at a crisp 1080p Full HD resolution, Continuity UI allows you to see and instantly interact with more of what matters, enabling a seamless connection between the physical controls and the displays.
The faders react on touch to immediately highlight the active channels for instant visual feedback.
The channel rotaries let you work gains or pans, then at the touch of a button, dynamically fold the display to show EQ or compressor parameters across the whole bank.
Each screen also features a FastGrab tab on the right-hand side, giving you split-second access to key freely-assignable parameters like aux sends, EQ, compressor and FX on the currently selected or specific channel.
The whole system is set up to dynamically surface the information you need at any moment and put control right at your fingertips.
A complete ecosystem of remote expanders.
Whether you’re an owner/operator looking to build a compact system, or a rental company with existing Allen & Heath stock, the SLink connection on Avantis allows true flexibility by connecting to the entire range of Allen & Heath audio expander hardware.
Add a Dante card to your system and you’ve got even more options, with our dedicated Dante expanders, DT168 and DT164-W.
GX4816 is a 96kHz audio expander that provides high-input-count remote expansion that makes it the ideal I/O expander for Avantis.
Each GX4816 is loaded with 48 dLive mic preamps with independent Phantom Power LED indicators, plus 16 XLR line outputs. Additionally, 2 DX ports are provided for connection to up to 4 DX Expanders for further I/O expansion. Connection to a ME Personal Mixing System is possible via the DX2 socket.
Perfect for feeding IEM systems and amplifier racks, DX012 offers both analogue and AES digital output options in a compact 1U form factor.
Each DX012 provides 12 XLR outputs, configurable as:
12 analogue line outputs
8 analogue line outputs + 4 stereo AES outputs
4 analogue line outputs + 8 stereo AES outputs
Right out of the box, Avantis is loaded with powerful processing tools that will easily meet the demands of most users and applications. Want more options? Upgrade your console with Avantis dPack to get additional dLive processing including Dyn8 (up to 16 instances), DEEP Compressors, and the Dual Stage Valve Preamp, plus more models as they’re added.
Trusted by platinum selling artists on sellout tours, DEEP puts incredible emulations directly within Avantis’ input and mix channels with zero latency. No burning FX slots, no 3rd party gear hassles and no issues with latency or phase coherency.
Avantis dPack also delivers Dyn8, a powerful and sophisticated processor boasting 4 bands of dynamic EQ and 4 bands of multiband compression. With endless applications including taming vocals, tightening sub-groups or adding sonic glue to a mix, Dyn8 changes the way we think about dynamic processing. dPack enables 16 Dyn8 engines for inserting on Input and Mix channels.
Trust us, these are not your usual built-in effects.
Allen & Heath has a well-earned reputation for crafting FX emulations that rival the very best third party plug-ins, but with none of the associated hassle.
With a passion bordering on obsession, we’ve created a suite of FX inspired by some of the most revered outboard equipment, including pristine reverbs, detailed delays, and wonderful classic modulation effects.
Best of all, we offer our 12 FX slots with no compromises. Each effect takes up just one of the 12 slots, and each of the 12 FX slots has a dedicated stereo return – so you don’t need to waste your input channels.
You’ve probably noticed that Avantis is not just another dull grey box mixer with plastic sides. Part-inspired by the tubular exo skeletons of the latest generation of superbikes, those sleek curves are all metal – super tough – but lightweight.
Because every part of Avantis was designed in pursuit of performance and reliability, we subjected it to some of the most rigorous testing we’ve ever embarked upon. And it took it all.
For local I/O, Avantis is well equipped with 12 XLR analogue inputs, 12 XLR analogue outputs, plus AES (Stereo In, 2x Stereo Out).
Two additional I/O Ports allow Avantis to benefit from the full range of current dLive option cards, including Dante (64×64 and 128×128), Waves, gigaACE, MADI and more, expanding the scope for system integration, FoH / monitor splits and multitrack recording.
With 128 channels of bidirectional audio at 96kHz, the Dante 128×128 card is suitable for high channel digital splits between systems, for instance FOH and MON, whilst offering simultaneous multitrack recording via Dante Virtual Soundcard (available separately).
The Dante 64×64 audio networking card offers low latency connectivity to Dante networks and devices using standard networking cabling and hardware and is a cost-effective alternative to Dante 128×128 in applications that don’t require the additional I/O.
An interface to the Waves SoundGrid networking platform, for plugin processing, multitrack recording and audio distribution.
A cost-effective and plug ‘n play solution for digital splits and point-to-point connections.
A flexible toolkit of broadcast connectivity. Multiformat to address requirements of broadcast/recording feeds + OB Vans.
A fibre optic solution for large scale events and long cable runs up to 500m.
