Axia Audio SoftSurface

April 4, 2011

Virtual console software

SoftSurface runs on PCs with Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 operating systems, and controls any StudioEngine-based Element console. The intuitive graphical interface uses familiar mixing controls. The software has two modes: Remote Control Mode gives real-time remote control of any Element mixing console connected to the Livewire network, for remote diagnostics or off-site operation of a mixing console from remotes, transmitter sites – even from home, via an Internet gateway. Virtual Console Mode pairs SoftSurface with an Axia StudioEngine to create a "soft" console, an audio mixing solution for limited-space locations where a physical control surface isn't practical.
