Lawo has announced a new software update for users of its radio mixing consoles, Power Core mixing engines and On-Air Designer configuration software.


Lawo: The update applies to Lawo radio mixing consoles, Power Core mixing engines and On-Air Designer configuration software

The new radio software, v6.6 PL-003, represents a major upgrade to On-Air Designer, the configuration software used to customise the functions of Lawo’s radio mixing consoles and audio cores including the ruby radio console used in hundreds of radio stations worldwide.

ruby features multiple snapshots for instant recall of saved parameters and settings, with silent motorised faders that automatically recall saved positions and programmable context-sensitive user keys that may be customised using On-Air Designer software. The new software adds the ability to selectively load snapshots using extended logic functions, enhanced AES67 stream tuning tools, and integrates control of Lawo A__line audio I/O devices into the radio workflow.

The update also adds new features to the configuration web pages of Power Core, Lawo’s best-selling Ravenna/AES67 mixing engine and I/O gateway device, as well as some enhancements for Lawo’s VisTool GUI Builder Software.

“Our radio team is always committed to developing the very products our clients need,” noted Johan Boqvist, senior product manager, radio. “To that end, we test our software and hardware products continually and make improvements based on clients’ feedback. This software upgrade underscores our commitment to excellence and to improving the tools, workflows and experiences of Lawo radio customers.”

Radio v6.6 software applies to the entire range of Lawo radio products, including ruby, sapphire, sapphire compact, crystal and crystalCLEAR mixing consoles, Power Core and Nova17 MK2 engines, VisTool MK2 GUI Builder software and the On-Air Designer console customisation tool.
