Audient have launched an online virtual Console Builder, allowing users to configure and visualise an ASP8024 Heritage Edition console to their own custom specification. Alongside the launch of the new website feature, the company have also treated the flagship console to a cosmetic upgrade.
The new feature on the company’s website is said to be the first of its kind, allowing people who are considering investing in the ASP8024-HE — or those who simply wish to specify one for their dream studio — to configure the console to their exact requirements, and have an instant visual representation of the results.
A simple interface offers users a selection of channel configuration options ranging from 12 up to 72, followed by a set of yes or no questions that determine whether the console needs be fitted with the optional Patchbay, Producer Desk or Dual Layer Control sections. There are also a number of additional practical extras available, including a depth extension for the top shelf, a VESA screen mount and extra-deep armrests. Each decision results in the on-screen image updating in real time, and once users are happy with their configuration, it is possible to download a file for reference.
“The ASP8024-HE is one of the only modular consoles on the market, which means it can be configured in hundreds of different ways. We wanted to demystify the process. Potential customers can now use this online tool to see what options are available, customise and choose the ideal desk for them with a real-time and downloadable visualisation.” - Andrew Allen, Product and Marketing Director, Audient
To coincide with the launch of the virtual tool, Audient have also announced a cosmetic refresh of the ASP8024-HE itself. The latest models still enjoy the same features that have made the console popular, but with visual improvements courtesy of a new colour scheme and cool white metering. The labelling has also been made easier to read, and the new look is finished off by the addition of a hand-made walnut armrest.
