In other Peavey-related news, the company’s Crest Audio brand has released an updated version of its Tactus digital mixing system. The new Tactus was developed in collaboration with Waves and is comprised of hardware and software elements that incorporate the Wave eMotion LV1 software.
Tactus is a touchscreen solution that is formed from three pieces of hardware: Tactus.FOH, Tactus.Stage and Tactus.Control. It also makes use of the Waves Soundgrid audio network protocol. Each of the system’s I/Os is designed to monitor, control and synchronise audio signals at FOH and onstage.
‘The latest version boasts revised faders and slider control on the Tactus.Control as well as an improved dedicated master on/off switch,’ said James Kennedy, operations manager for Peavey Commecial Audio EMEA. ‘We’ve made connectivity and networking simple, with USB, Ethernet and MIDI all available.’
