Blackmagic Design unveils new Fairlight desktop console

Blackmagic Design has unveiled its new Fairlight desktop console, a portable audio control surface featuring 12 touch-sensitive flying faders, built-in LCDs above each channel strip for pan and effects control, and full automation control. It also features an HDMI interface for connecting a monitor to view an expanded graphical interface with audio status and metering. The manufacturer describes the console as a complete audio mixing control surface for mixing multiple tracks at once, automating a variety of parameters and plug-in settings, controlling channel functions, recording, monitoring, and navigation.

Features include precision control knobs and illuminated buttons for quickly identifying channels. Customers can use the knobs and buttons to control channel parameters, EQ, dynamics and plug-ins. The built in HDMI output lets users connect a display, giving them the same interactive graphical feedback as larger consoles. The sculpted faders are described as smooth and are said to provide the perfect amount of resistance for making subtle adjustments. Individual LCDs display track information for each channel.

The Fairlight HDMI monitor interface has also been launched. It lets customers use any HDMI or SDI television or computer monitor with the large Fairlight studio consoles. For users who like to customise their large audio consoles and even design their own custom desks and studio furniture, this converter will reportedly allow them to use any display to get a real-time Fairlight graphics user interface with channel status and full audio level metering. The interface lets customers use their own HDMI monitor with Fairlight 2, 3, 4 or 5 bay studio consoles for direct visual feedback. It works by converting the console’s Ethernet data into HDMI and SDI, making it compatible with other computer displays or broadcast monitors.
