New Product Awards 2019 – Allen & Heath Custom Control (Audio, Digital Mixing Console [$1,001+])

Custom Control is a customizable, cross-platform control app, providing elegant and simple control over Allen & Heath dLive installed audio systems.

Multiple User Interfaces

With Custom Control, you can freely design multiple user interfaces and tailor them to different user levels and/or device types. For example, a pastor may be presented with a simple level control interface for their office via a mobile phone or tablet, while the AV operator can access uncluttered levels and routing on their tablet, but more comprehensive control when using their laptop.

Multiple rooms at a house of worship can have different interfaces, designed specifically for that room or the application. For other events that require only one or two microphones or just playback audio, a very simple interface can be designed that allows volunteers to use their own mobile phone and not feel intimated by complex interfaces.

Fully Customizable

The design of the app interface is via Custom Control editor software for Windows and Mac OS. Access to all levels, mutes and sends is provided, together with preset recall, source selection and metering. Tabs can be configured for easy access to multiple control pages or zones. A library of control designs is provided, with the option to add custom graphics to match the house of worship venue. Once complete, the configuration is uploaded to the core of the system, the MixRack, ready for deployment.

The Custom Control editor software is so easy to use, it does not require certification to use. So as needs change for the church, modification can be easily made.

Kiosk & BYOD

Any device running the Custom Control app can log into the system with a given user profile, at which point, the correct user interface is instantly downloaded and displayed. This allows for both kiosk applications and BYOD use, since the configuration is deployed on demand. Users can be password protected for added security.

For the first time house of worship AV technicians have a very simple and easy to deploy touchscreen design tool that allows them to customize interfaces quickly and easily. Because house of worship organizations rely so much on volunteers, it is critical to make the audio systems easy to operate for them when a front of house engineer is not required. Custom Control will be a game changer, for the first time allowing house of worship users to use either a full-scale 36-fader dLive mixing surface or just a mobile phone or tablet to control one microphone.

The Custom Control app is available for free on iOS, Android, Windows and Mac operating systems.
