Allen and Heath Launches New Avantis Mixer
Allen & Heath have revealed its new 96kHz digital mixer, name Avantis - the third to be based on the XCVI FPGA engine.
The Avantis bridges the gap between the SQ and dLive formats putting all the companies next-generation technology in a standalone 64 channel / 42 configurable bus console. Complete 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 with a rugged full metal chassis.
Allen & Heath's Managing Director Rob Clark said "Avantis takes many of the features that have made SQ and dLive so popular, putting them in a standalone 64-channel mixer that offers a new UI experience, connectivity with our Everything I/O ecosystem, and the dPack option which gives you access to our advanced dLive processing options if and when you need them.
"On top of that," adds Rob, "we've taken a new approach with the industrial design, coming up with a full metal chassis that’s super-strong, lightweight and looks fantastic."
The Avantis is also part of Allen & Heath’s Everything I/O ecosystem allowing true flexibility by connecting to a huge range of audio expander hardware. Ideal for owner/operators looking to build a compact system or a rental companies with existing stock.

Customers in venues, houses of worship, touring and the rental market are going to be seriously impressed by how well this ticks the boxes. It's a really exciting mixer at a compelling price."
