Introduction
Computer control of mixing operations first became possible in the 1970’s with the
introduction of the
Allison 65K
computer which controlled
VCAs
in the input signal path.
An alternative approach was taken by Mr Rupert Neve’s original company with the use of
servo-assisted (moving) faders which did not require
VCAs
. Both of these approaches still
form the basis of analogue console automation systems today.
Computing, however, has evolved rapidly and now provides huge advances in all aspects of
data processing and storage. Graphics capability has also improved beyond recognition and
allows sophisticated screen displays to be used as a matter of course.
AMEK introduced it’s own automation system
“Supertrue”
in 1989 and there are now
thousands of installations worldwide.
Supertrue
is powerful, easy to use and is under
continuous development to provide new features and sub-programs which progressively
enhance the applications of the computer controlled mixing.
Supertrue 4
is the latest version of the world’s most widely used automation system.
Released with the flagship
9098i
console designed by Mr. Rupert Neve, it introduces many
new features, such as an improved interface with 256 colour graphics, the flexible
Circular
Mix Mode
, an improved
Faders Up Screen
with
Multiple Zoom
levels, enhanced
Mix Editing
functions and an improved
Recall System
.
DOS
Supertrue 4
continues to use the
DOS
operating system, for its speed and proven stability.
A knowledge of
DOS
is not essential to using
Supertrue
but can sometimes be helpful
when interpreting some aspects of the system.
The following section refers to several
DOS
commands and while each is explained fully,
you should consider purchasing a
DOS
user guide if you are unfamiliar with the operating
system.
