DiGiCo announces V1742 Software Release for SD and Quantum Consoles

DiGiCo announced 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 on the DiGiCo website, V1742 replaced previous version V1619, which was rolled out a year and a half ago.

The installation of V1742 enabled 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 enabled 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.

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

“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,” commented 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.”
