IT'S A SMALL STEP TO A GIANT LEAP - The Allen & Heath Avantis

The third mixer based on our 96kHz XCVI FPGA engine, Avantis puts all our next-generation technology in a standalone 64 channel / 42 configurable bus console, with dual Full HD touchscreens, a super-flexible workflow with Continuity UI, extensive I/O options, add-on processing from our flagship dLive mixing system, and a rugged full metal chassis.

 

Step up to Avantis. Leap ahead of the curve.

  • 96kHz / 64 CHANNEL / 42 BUS DIGITAL MIXER
  • FULLY CONFIGURABLE MIX ARCHITECTURE
  • XCVI CORE - 0.7MS LATENCY / PHASE COHERENT
  • DUAL FULL HD TOUCHSCREENS WITH CONTINUITY UI
  • EVERYTHING I/O - HUGE RANGE OF REMOTE EXPANDERS
  • DPACK UPGRADE FOR ADDITIONAL DLIVE PROCESSING
  • SUPER STRONG, LIGHTWEIGHT FULL METAL CHASSIS

 

More about XCVI...

The power of dLive emanates from the XCVI Core – pioneered by the Allen & Heath R&D team using next generation FPGA technology, with parallel virtual processing cores generating enough power for 88×42 channels of processing at 96kHz sampling rate.

The massive power of XCVI (25 billion operations per second) allows Avantis to deliver 64 full processing inputs and 12 stereo FX returns, 42 bus with configurable mix architecture, variable bit depth for ultimate precision and noise performance, a virtually infinite mix headroom thanks to a 96bit accumulator, and class-leading latency at an ultra-low 0.7ms.

 

CONTINUITY UI

  • It's your mixer so mix your way.
  • 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.

 

EVERYTHING I/O

  • 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 - THE PERFECT PARTNER I/O

  • 48 XLR Input / 16 XLR Output - 96kHz
  • 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.

 

DX012 - GET MORE OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM

  • 12 Configurable Outputs - Switchable Analogue/AES - 96kHz
  • 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

 

UPGRADE TO dPACK

  • Get acclaimed dLive processing.
  • Inside your Avantis. 
  • 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.

 

dPACK - DEEP

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.

 

dPACK - DYN8

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.

 

RACKEXTRA FX

  • 12 dedicated fx rack slots. And no compromises. 
  • 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.

 

FULL METAL CHASSIS

  • Lightweight and super-strong. 
  • 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.

 

WELL CONNECTED

  • Dante. Waves. And so much more. 
  • 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 (64x64 and 128x128), Waves, gigaACE, MADI and more, expanding the scope for system integration, FoH / monitor splits and multitrack recording.

“By far the best service I’ve ever experienced. I was importing a product to Canada and the whole experience was quick, easy and seamless. These guys really care about running a good business. Not to mention the price was cheaper than the stores here even after importing. Definitely will do more business in the future.”
