Duality has recently been enhanced by the release of new “SE” version software.
This is available on all factory shipped production models and can be retro fitted to any existing Duality console via a simple user installed software upgrade.
This new edition of Duality is a response to customer feedback and provides a collection of new features and refinements to the established core feature set.
At the center of the enrichments is the way Duality communicates and controls DAW applications through the introduction of an Ethernet connection between the console and DAW host computer. This single cable approach greatly simplifies installation and streamlines DAW control setup, furthermore improving the “feel” on the DAW control layer. New Dual Layer DAW control enables Duality to control two independent DAW’s simultaneously, with seamless switching of hardware surface controls between manipulation of each DAW layer. The Duality Logictivity Browser has also been refreshed with new features providing a modernised user interface and new visual appearance. The Solo/Cut tiles across all of the consoles channel strips have been replaced with a new set of LCD screens providing more space for a greater level of information and improved viewing angles, and enhancement of Mackie Control supported DAWs.
The analogue side of Duality receives 25 individual feature additions, with a few key areas of focus:
The Talkback system sees the welcome addition of an Autocue system that provides options to set how the Red Light, Talkback & Listen switches operate and respond to Play or Record transport commands.
The SSL Automation system has been more than significantly enhanced with the addition of an Offline Trim facility, selection of Automation Update Status at the head of the mix and the creative addition of automation for all Cue, FX and EQ insert switches.
The SuperAnalogue Monitoring is improved with a new Calibration facility, a new ‘fine’ mode that increments in 0.4dB steps and the ability to display in three different modes: FILM (off-95db), Music (1-11) or Gain (off-0db).
The Total Recall™ system also receives an upgrade with the addition of an Autoscan feature that significantly speeds up Recall by conducting a sequential scan of the channels only stopping at those which require attention.
Duality SE is available now. Duality SE (software) is available as an upgrade option to existing Duality customers call or email for details.
