Allen & Heath iDR0
Allen & Heath's iDR0 (£4999) is a new 2RU processing unit that provides all the processing features of the iLive system for networked audio systems. Instead of slots for I/O modules, the iDR0 offers two EtherSound ports, which provide all the audio inputs and outputs of the system. The unit uses the same processing PCBs as the iDR10, the "mix rack" that provides I/O and all processing and mixing functions with the current iLive system. Processing for 64 inputs, with full dynamics and EQ into 32 mixes with dynamics, EQ and graphic EQ is provided, and can be controlled by any of the iLive surfaces over Ethernet. Provision is also made for the backup power supply unit, iPS10, if required.

In other news, Allen & Heath's iLive Version 1.2 software, which is pre-installed in the iDR0 unit, has also been released. This new version provides many new tools for the user, including a range of new effects, such as delays, reverbs, ADT Doubler, Flanger (which emulates old classic flangers) and chorus. Also included in the new software suite is a 4-band parametric EQ on FX returns, the option to insert an FX engine into a channel as if it were an external device (plug-in style) and a patchbay extension making external inputs available for matrices, groups, aux and mains. Visit for a full list of features and download the software for free. A full list of all the additional features is available on the iLive website, where the new software is available as a free download.

Monitor engineer Dave Guerin recently road-tested the DiGiCo D5 Version 4 upgrade for The Pogues' Christmas tour. Entec Sound and Light supplied the console, along with the rest of the monitor gear.

[With the upgrade,] now you can easily see the graphic that is inserted on the selected output and it's immediately available. As soon as you select the output, the graphic's there. You can also be listening to one output, but select a different mix to the one you are listening to, which means you can adjust the reverb send while listening to where the reverb is returning to. Guitarist James Walbourne has a full mix of drums, accordion, banjo and main vocal, plus his vocal and acoustic. [Guest vocalist] Ella Finer uses the same wedges but with a totally different mix of just her vocal and a bit of the main vocal. On an analog desk, there would be lots of buttons having to be turned off. On the D5, with one fader I can change between the mix for James and the mix for Ella in the same set of wedges.
