    I’d suggest to test both and THEN decide which one is for you..I believe they have a different workflow.. they’ll both sound excellent (or most probably exactly the same)..
    but tey do have a different (mostly HW, with the software integration, new screens) feature set.

    The avantis will be cheaper IF you need a relatively high number of faders.

    Thank you Nicola,
    looks the Avantis ticks a lot of boxes for me..Nice job! I definitely need to test it out 🙂

    regarding the stageboxes: true, there’s a lot of options.. would be great if the dx168 was a little bit more thought to be racked honestly (I know you can, but the pwr connector and cat connectors on the side are NOT a smart idea..very unpractical..put the on the back please..it would make so much sense, even in a standalone/non racked setting) and if there will be a DX84 might also be a good add. (you could use that DX012 frame) 😉

    regarding the multitracking on USB: may I kindly ask to reconsidering it? it would be so practical also as a simple backup on top of the Dante or Waves option (you might limit the amount of tracks to 32 if that’s one of the issues you have with usb, like on the SQ)..

    is the DCA spill option avalaible for the Avantis and/or the SQ?

    Thank you!

    Hey Nicola! Nice one!
    1.are the led lights integrated like in the SQ and dLive series?
    2.are you planning a 96k 24-12 with dLive stagebox?
    3.will you allow direct 96k multitracking recording on this one, please? (like on the SQ)

    nice one with the AES I/0 and the faders number.. thumbs up!
    i’m curious to test this “new” workflow too..

    needs to test one asap.. 🙂
    when will be avalaible?

    Thank you!

    I don’t know..
    I do believe it’s simply because they are “pushing” something else..
    GLD is still on the website, although not being new and probably selling less than the new SQ/dLive stuff.

    I’d love a GLD with the headroom, sound and capabilities of a dLive (even limited to 48channels).

    it will fit right in the middle between an SQ with “fixed” bus structure and a dLive C class.

    Also e payable upgrade to the ones owning the hw might be a cool route.. Being able to use the actual GLD surface.. But I don’t think this might be interesting for the brand.. They might go for a all new design or a “redesign”.

    gLive it’s a cool idea..
    Very similar hw of the actual gld (maybe with the knobs/pots and metering of the dLive) and being able to drive also the dLive stageboxes. Keep some nice 3 pots per band Eq and dedicated control for the compressors and the widget.

    Just limit it to 44/48 physical channels but being able to use the same 96k engine/processing/preamps and converters of the dLive with a non-fix bus architecture (like the actual gld or the dlive in contrast to SQ or Qu).

    A 20 or compact 24 faders version will fit most. I believe there’s no need for 2 different versions.
    Keep it compact and light, like the actual gld is.
    Great board for the price.

    You want a cheaper option?
    Go with SQ.

    Need more channels and “better” hw? Go dLive C (or S class if you need redundancy, more I/O cards and swappable pwr supply).
    Should be able to use any stagebox outthere like SQ does.

    An insertable one on at least 16 or 24 instances (like they did for the dyna8) would be great.
    A&H go and check the soundtoys decapitator.. Really a good, fast and easy to use plug.. Plus it sounds pretty cool.

    Thanks!

    Yep!!
    +1

    Since you’re at it do it for the qu-series (and gld) as well, please.

    An good SSL emulation as well as a nice vari mu emulation would be great indeed.

    I do love the opto on most sources, I have to admit it’s great!

    Yep! It would be great indeed..
    Being able to insert it on some sources or groups AND on the masterbuss after that SSL comp 😉

    I’d suggest to test out a great 2″ 16 track like the MCI’s.. Fat and round!
    As well as the 1/4″ 2track.. Love the MCI JH110 WITHOUT xformers.. Ampex is also a great machine as well as the studer 820 (if you want a newer one).

    I agree..
    BUT I’d say it would be MUCH more practical to being able to play MP3/AAC/aiff too…

    Sometimes ppl just show up with a crappy mp3.. and you can’t play it back! Frustrating.
    Although I understand that with a wav file you’ll have a better sounding file.. sometimes that just don’t happen in the real life.

    Love my S3000, one of the best desk around..and not only for the money..!! 🙂

    Thanks!

    Even if you have 2 Dante cards installed (one in the mixrack and one in the second surface) ?

    I just got mine! An S3000 with a custom made rolled cart/table.

    Can’t wait for some more classic emulations fx/comps.
    It’s really a high quality piece of gear..
    congrats to A&H for pushing it further! 🙂

    There’s also channel ganging already where you could decide which parameter to latch to the pair (from fader only to eq, comp, etc etc..
    Does not a big problem to me..
    Am I missing something?

    If it will be like the new ipad App for the Qu series (1.91), it will be great and really intuitive and fast to work on..
    Custom layers are really cool!! 🙂
    Thank you A&H!!
