EVO – today’s big mixer at tomorrow’s smart price
Fairlight’s EVO console delivers the ultimate in configurability and customisation – enabling you to build the console for exactly your application, from neatly efficient to highly impressive.
EVO is tactile – it’s hands-on for mixing and for editing, providing a comprehensive set of physical controls for easy access and precise adjustment of your mix. At the same time EVO is highly visual – it lights up with feedback from the self-labelling Picture Keys, the high-resolution colour displays on every fader and the embedded screen bridge with rich graphics and channel feedback.
The centre-section utilises 79 of Fairlight’s patented Picture Keys to provide rapid and accurate tactile access to all core control and editing functions. The keys change label and function instantly, repurposing the control surface in context with the task at hand. Supporting the Picture Keys, a further 16 function keys and 8 touch-sensitive rotary controls provide access to even more editing commands as well as control of EQ and other processing.
EVO’s centre section compresses a wide array of functionality into a small area, reducing your need to move far from the best listening position. It represents an elegant solution to the problems of increasing system capability and complexity, combined with reduced physical working space and operator learning curve. Precise and rapid control of the built-in monitoring system is ensured through dedicated control-room and studio level controls, and associated Mute, Dim and Talk switches.
Customised For You
For even more flexibility, add 1 or 2 Intellipad subpanels. Each provides a further 24 Picture Keys and 4 page keys, offering fast access to an additional 192 possible functions. Fairlight’s iCan software with Layout Editor allows function ‘layouts’ on both the centre section and on the intellipads to be customised and edited so you decide which buttons appear where and when.
The centre section can be further enhanced with the addition of any combination of our 8 types of sub- modules including joystick, automation controls, trackball or enhanced monitor controls.
The EVO supports up to 5 fader panels, giving you direct access to a total of 60 signals at any time. Each fader strip includes a fader, various control buttons, a touch sensitive rotary control, and a high-res colour display with track naming, metering and other visual feedback. The fader panels can optionally be complemented with In-Line panels. Operating in either channel or In-Line mode, this option provides knob-per-function access to channel parameters with a further 4 rotary encoders and 4 switches for each fader strip. All encoders and switches are dual function, placing a total of 192 parameters at your fingertips.
