AVIOM INTRODUCES THE NEW A360 PERSONAL MIXER AT NAMM 2013

ANAHEIM, CA, JANUARY 24, 2013—Aviom, manufacturer of the iconic A-16II Personal Mixer and industry leader in personal mixing, is pleased to announce that it will be introducing its next generation personal mixer, the A360 Personal Mixer, at NAMM (Hall A, Booth 6720). The A360 brings new levels of control and customization to the personal monitoring experience with a number of new features that give entirely new options to performers both on the stage and in the studio.

Aviom has been known for its “little blue mixers” since it introduced the original A-16 in 2002. The A360 Personal Mixer maintains the simplicity, flexibility, and reliability that Aviom users are accustomed to while also incorporating advanced control options.

“The number one feature we’ve been asked for over the years is more channels,” says Chandler Collison, Aviom’s director of marketing. “The key was to provide more content and control for the mix without just throwing more channels and complexity at musicians who are trying to focus on music not mixing.”

The A360 features an advanced 36-channel mix engine which can be used to mix up to 17 mono or stereo channels plus mono or stereo ambience. For each of the A360’s standard mix channels, users can adjust volume, tone, and reverb. The A360 also includes a revolutionary Stereo Placement pan-spread control that allows the width of a stereo channel’s image to be controlled independent of its left-right placement in the stereo field. This approach, which is ideal for IEM and headphone users, improves spatial perception as well as sonic clarity of the mix.

The seventeenth channel on the A360, the Dual Profile Channel™, allows users instant access to two independent combinations of channel volume, tone, reverb, and stereo placement for a favorite channel. This Dual Profile Channel may be set to mirror one of the 16 standard mix channels, or this channel can be used for additional mix content. In addition, ambience can be added to the mix either using the convenient onboard ambient microphone or by using network channels. Musicians can add or remove ambience with the single touch of a button.

“Musicians aren’t engineers, and a mixer designed for musicians needs to respect that,” says Aviom’s product research and development manager, Ray Legnini. “Features like the Dual Profile Channel, One-Touch Ambience, and Instant Mix Recalls allow musicians to adjust their mix during a performance without diverting their attention from their music.”

Designed specifically for users whose primary focus is performing, not mixing, the A360’s features are instantly available—no menus to navigate, no softkeys, and no complex programming to get the system up and running.

The A360’s master output section includes standard bass and treble tone controls but adds a new Enhance control designed to provide more sonic presence, especially for performers using in-ear monitors. The A360 also offers the ability to easily connect a subwoofer, shaker, or mono wedge monitor using the Mono Mix Out control that feeds a rear-panel XLR Jack. In addition, there are standard 1/4-inch and 1/8-inch TRS stereo outputs.

The new A360s can be seamlessly integrated into existing Aviom personal mixing systems. Based on an enhanced version of Aviom’s Pro16 A-Net protocol, Pro16e, the technology driving the A360 Personal Mixer allows multiple 16-channel banks of monitoring content to be delivered over a single Cat-5 cable. Each A360 in a system may use the default channels, or audio channels can be selected and organized individually for each personal mixer, drawing from a network pool of up to 64 channels.

“We really set out to give musicians meaningful enhancements so they get a more musical mix without a lot of work,” adds Legnini. “That’s particularly true for musicians using in-ear monitors.”

The breakthrough features on the A360 Personal Mixer offer performers more precise control of their monitor mixes and more flexibility and control in building the right group of channels to mix. And the new USB saving feature allows users to upload mixer profiles and mix settings for those situations where multiple users may have to use the same A360 for different performances.

Aviom pioneered personal mixing with its Pro16® Monitor Mixing System and continues to break new ground with the revolutionary Pro64® Series of audio networking products. With tens of thousands of products in the field today, Aviom has set the standard for high performance, scalable digital solutions. All Aviom systems harness the power of A-Net®, Aviom’s innovative digital audio technology that simplifies system design while enhancing flexibility and fidelity. All Aviom products are designed, tested, and manufactured in the USA. For more information, visit www.Aviom.com.
