The third mixer based on their 96kHz XCVI FPGA engine, Avantis puts all their 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 their flagship dLive mixing system, and a rugged full metal chassis.
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.
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
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.
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 (64×64 and 128×128), Waves, gigaACE, MADI and more, expanding the scope for system integration, FoH / monitor splits and multitrack recording.
