Martinsound Introduces Flying Faders II Automation
ALHAMBRA, CA - October 5, 2002 - Martinsound introduced Flying Faders II at the 113th AES Convention in Los Angeles (October 5-8, 2002). The next-generation moving fader automation system builds on the 12-year heritage and enormous worldwide user base of Flying Faders and has been developed in a Windows XP environment to provide support not only for powerful new features but also future growth.
Flying Faders has earned a reputation as the "Just Mix" system due to a philosophy that allows users to get on with the job of engineering without the console automation getting in the way. The new Flying Faders II system preserves the usability, reliability and key features of the Flying Faders core code in a brand new, cutting-edge development environment that utilizes the very latest software development tools and computer processing power to add features that were simply not possible on the old platform.
The Flying Faders II main screen has been reworked, providing a multi-tabbed graphic interface that provides one-click access to any setting. Fast and intuitive, Flying Faders II allows users to control their own work environment through multi-screen and cross-platform support. Since Flying Faders II offers multi-screen support, users can either dock floating control palettes and access them through tabs or pull them off onto other screens for multi-operator control.
Powerful new features planned for initial and future release in Flying Faders II include:
For existing Flying Faders users the upgrade to Flying Faders II simply requires the replacement of the old computer with the new Flying Faders II computer and dedicated USB interface, which connects to the Flying Faders II fiber optic port. Nothing is changed in the console. Archived Flying Faders mixes are preserved through the inclusion of a translation program onto the new Flying Faders II platform. Additionally, for AMS Neve V Series console users, Martinsound has revamped the recall system, giving the interface an up-to-date look and combining the system with Flying Faders II for a single, integrated automation package.
Complete custom Flying Faders II packages for installation on any new or existing non-automated console are available factory-direct from Martinsound.
