DiGiCo V1742 small

DiGiCo announces the release of its latest software release, Version 1742, designed for all SD and Quantum consoles. Now available for free download from the Info and Downloads section of the DiGiCo website, found under the Support tab at the website below, V1742 replaces previous version V1619, which was rolled out a year and a half ago.

Of particular note, the installation of V1742 enables Quantum338 and Quantum225 owners to purchase and harness DiGiCo’s optional new Pulse software extension, revealed this January, increasing their number of input channels, busses, and Mustard and Nodal Processors. V1742 will also offer Quantum7 and Quantum5 customers a bump in Mustard processing numbers for free.

The new software release enables DiGiCo users to benefit from KLANG’s also-new KOS 5.5 upgrade, which permits standalone console integration without requiring a separate KLANG control PC to run KLANG:app. KOS 5.5 brings numerous enhancements, including a streamlined setup process that automatically detects the console and greatly reduces setup time. Other helpful amenities include automatic console aux and aux node mapping/naming, as well as automatic show file load and save.

DiGiCo’s V1742 release provides support for utilizing an internal Fourier Interface Card. Furthermore, the software broadens compatibilities with two more manufacturers’ immersive audio platforms, offering native worksurface control of Meyer Sound’s Spacemap Go and Adamson’s FletcherMachine.

Adopters of the latest software update will discover a host of other benefits, including:

  • Mix Minus added to Quantum consoles
  • Mustard Dynamics now displayed on Quantum meterbridge
  • Control Group and hard Mute indicators have been added to meterbridge multi-layer view for the SD7/Quantum7 and SD5/Quantum5
  • KLANG positions now have a separate recall scope
  • Support of Quantum852 session conversion
  • Support for DMI-AVB card
  • Other features and fixes

“V1742 represents our R&D department’s bespoke solutions to insightful customer requests over the past couple of years as well as DiGiCo’s continuing initiatives to broaden connections and interoperability with top industry partners,” says DiGiCo MD Austin Freshwater. “We’re excited for our users to experience the versatility and muscle that this new software version carries, and we look forward to continuing to help them delight their artists and audiences alike with stellar mixes.”
