Allen & Heath has released a major firmware and driver update for its acclaimed recording console, the GS-R24. The new firmware includes integrated support of the HUI protocol for direct integration with DAW applications with HUI MIDI control presets, such as ProTools and Reaper, and users also benefit from a range of enhancements to the FireWire interface driver.
HUI, which synchronises DAW software and connected hardware devices, is now emulated by three virtual MIDI ports in the GS-R24’s new firmware, tunnelled over the mixer’s FireWire connection. This means that for GS-R24M mixers equipped with the FireWire interface, a third party translator is no longer essential.
A new set of DAW Resource Packs is also available online, with step-by-step instructions and template projects to aid the set-up of popular recording software.
