Increased fader count from Allen & Heath’s GLD-112

Published:

Allen & Heath’s GLD-112 – a larger version of the GLD-80 – is a mixer that has been optimised for applications where an increased fader count is a primary consideration. The GLD-112’s feature set is said to be particularly beneficial for houses of worship and festivals, where events and performers change regularly and there is limited rehearsal time.

The console boasts an extra bank comprising eight control strips, increasing the channel count to 28 fader strips in just four layers, and also offers a dedicated shelf to hold an iPad running the free GLD remote app.

GLD-112 retains the same analogue-style channel processing control section complemented by a graphical 8.4-inch touch screen as the GLD-80. A fully customisable drag and drop layout allows quick and easy assignment of inputs and mixes to fader strips. The mixer’s local I/O comprises four XLR mic/line inputs, four XLR line outs, four RCA inputs, two RCA outputs and digital outputs in SPDIF and AES3 formats.

The larger GLD is scene compatible with the existing GLD-80 mixer, and at the heart of both mixers is the same audio core, including 48 input processing channels, eight stereo effects returns, 30 configurable buses, 20 mix processing channels and DSP power to provide full processing.

GLD-112 has the ability to record and playback a stereo signal on a USB memory stick, and standard iLive audio I/O option cards for Dante, Madi, Waves and Allen & Heath’s ACE protocols can be fitted.

As with the GLD-80, GLD-112 also connects to a range of plug and play I/O racks to ‘build’ 12, 20, 28, 36 or 44 mic input systems. An AR2412 rack and up to two AR84 expander racks can be connected over Cat-5 runs using the manufacturer’s dSnake protocol.

In related news, Allen & Heath has released a new firmware update for its GLD digital mixing system. V1.2 introduces several new features, including support for the GLD-112, and adds four new effects unique to the GLD system, as well as many additions in response to customer feedback, including compressor parallel path, VS1 VocalShift, PitchDoubler, Rotator and De-Esser.

Lastly, the manufacturer has released a v1.91 firmware update for its iLive range of digital mixing systems, containing a series of presets created by sound engineer and regular iLive user, Ben Booker. 

These include an ‘off mic boost’ option to deal with bad mic techniques, an ‘IEM help’ function to gently compress in-ear mixes, and ‘bass fix’ to smooth out bass guitars.
