Introducing the new Logitek Helix audio console.

In Partnership with Logitek Australia. Logitek has developed the Logitek Helix, it’s sixth generation of router-based digital consoles. Featuring a multi-touch interface and available in both physical and virtual editions. Helix provides users a touch-friendly experience across consoles, screens, tablets and phones.

Tap or swipe on Helix’s brilliant touchscreens to change sources, make bus assignments, or add EQ and dynamics to sweeten the mix. When your eyes need to be elsewhere while on the air, motorized faders and large on/off buttons make it easy to mix audio eyes-free.

When you’re out of the studio, Helix is easy to control from a smartphone, tablet, or laptop running any operating system. Helix meets the challenges of modern broadcasting. Which demands efficient use of physical hardware, while retaining the flexibility needed for multiple users and operational situations.

It’s a radically different approach to audio consoles.

Four products have been introduced in the Helix line:

Helix Radio is available in sizes from 6 to 24 faders. It includes a Monitor module and an HDMI output for a touchscreen meter/control bridge. Modules can be mounted in a single or split desktop frame.

Helix Television is available in sizes from 6 to 36 faders, with a Monitor module for master mixing. It incorporates two master mix buses (one 5.1, one stereo), four stereo aux buses and four stereo submasters; frame delay is available at every fader.

Helix Surface is a large format virtual console for the 28” Microsoft Surface Studio. The Helix interface fully mirrors the experience of physical Helix consoles. This allows it to be used in a variety of workflows. Helix Surface can be deployed for second control rooms, remote locations, or even as a replacement for a physical console. It presents full multi-touch capabilities on a 4500 x 3000 DPI adjustable screen.

The Helix interface also powers Logitek’s new vMix Touch. vMix Touch presents custom layouts across multiple devices and screen sizes. vMix Touch does not require a Windows PC or application, making it a true cross-platform multi-touch interface.
