The Roland Systems Group, which supplies the commercial audio/video industries with application specific equipment, has released updated drivers and software for its “V-Mixing System” components, updates that are connected to Apple’s release of Mountain Lion OS software.
The newly released Mac/PC S-4000RCS Version 2.3 control software for the stand-alone Digital Snake and M-48 Personal Mixing System offers some excellent workflow improvements, Roland says.
Resizable windows allow the user to simply drag the assignment window out to see all 40 sources down one side and 16 groups across the top, according to Roland. That feature is available for Preamps settings and Source/Levels assignments, the company says.
The S-4000RCS is the setup and control software for the popular Personal Mixing and Digital Snake systems when a Roland V-Mixer is not part of the configuration. That software enables the award-wining M-48 Personal Mixers and other Digital Snake products to be used stand-alone or with any other console in any audio environment.
With the recent Apple release of the Mountain Lion OS, Roland Systems Group has provided updated drivers for V-Mixer consoles to run the “remote control software” (RCS) for Mac. Those drivers are only necessary to get a Mac computer to run on Mac OS 10.8. Previous Mac OS versions can use the pre 10.8 drivers. Those drivers are available for the Roland M-480, M-400, M-380, and M-300 V-Mixer consoles, and the R-1000 Multi-channel Recorder/Player.
Roland Systems Group also has released remote control software (RCS) for the R-1000 a 48-channel multi-track recorder/player to support Mac OS 10.8. The R-1000 is an integral part of the V-Mixing System, and makes rehearsals and training more effective with Instant Playback, Virtual Rehearsal and Recording and can be remotely controlled from a V-Mixer Console or directly from the R-1000 RCS software, Roland says.
