Allen & Heath GLD-80 Chrome Edition Compact Digital Mixing Surface

The Allen & Heath GLD-80 Chrome Edition is a compact digital mixing surface that is designed to integrate into a GLD digital mixing system; it provides scalable I/O, integrated FX processing, advanced routing, wireless remote mixing via iPad, and much more. Successor to the GLD-80, this version features all of the same functionality of the original, while adding sleek new styling, Automatic Mic Mixing, new embedded plug-in FX, and new compressor models on all channels.

Featuring local I/O comprising 4 XLR mic/line inputs and 4 XLR line outputs, 4 RCA inputs, 2 RCA outputs, SPDIF and AES3 digital outputs, plus the ability connect to a range of optional remote I/O racks via Cat5, the Allen & Heath GLD-80 Chrome Edition allows you to build 28, 36, or 44-channel systems. This, combined with its highly portable design, makes the GLD-80 Chrome Edition ideal for touring and for permanent sound reinforcement installations alike.

The console also provides 8 stereo FX engines and enough DSP power to provide processing without compromise. It has an analog-style channel processing control section, which is complemented by a graphical 8.4" touchscreen. A fully customizable drag ’n’ drop layout allows for quick and easy assignment of inputs and mixes to the faders. It has 20 motorized fader strips in 4 layers, each with a channel LCD screen, which can be named and color coded, plus a rotary control for direct access to gain, pan, and aux/FX sends.
