A new (and free) firmware update for the Livemix personal monitor system adds some great new features

Stereo Pairs
Now you can add adjacent channels into stereo pairs from the Group Setup screen. Add up to 12 stereo pairs simply and easily from the CS-DUO or CS-SOLO.

Volume Scaling
For those times when you find that your channel volumes are too high (or too low) and your master volume is too low. Simply long press the ADJUST knob for 5 seconds and all 24 (plus accessory) channels will go into a temporary group. Adjust the volume up or down and then press ADJUST again to get out of the Volume Scaling mode.

Other Features
We’ve improved the short and medium reverbs to be more useable, made the Master EQ sweepable, and prepared the system for our 96K Dante card (coming really soon).


Recording Magazine Reviews the 500TDI & 583S

In our April 2009 issue, Justin Peacock reviewed the 583s preamp, designed by Scott LaChapell of aptly named LaChapell Audio. Justin was very impressed with its sonic character; he described it as a “big, wide and clear sound” that also had “fantastic depth and width,” even “Mojo”.

At the time, the 2-space 583s was the very first tube mic preamp available for API’s 500 Series. Its biggest innovation was Scott’s DC-to-DC converter, which converted the API enclosure’s supplied 16V power to AC, stepped it up to 250V, and converted it back to DC, making a high-voltage tube preamp design possible in a 500 Series module. Hot stuff… literally!

Fast forward to 2018, and Scott has updated the 583s to a mk2 preamp design. It still makes use of Scott’s step-up converter, but now fits into a single-space 500 Series module. The same is true its brand-new sibling, the 500TDI Tube Direct Box. I had a chance to work with them both for several weeks, and was easily as impressed as Justin was!…
