Peavey Aureus™ Named Finalist for NAMM TEC Award for Small Console Format Technology

Peavey Aureus 28 Channel Digital Mixer

The Peavey Aureus™ digital mixing console has been announced as a finalist for the 37th Annual NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Awards in the category of Small Console Format Technology. Presented at The NAMM Show, The NAMM TEC Awards are bestowed annually in celebration of the pro audio community by recognizing the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind today’s sound recordings, live performances, films, television, video games and other media.

The announcement follows a four-month call for entries of standout technical and creative products and projects that have made a significant impact on modern sound and music. A panel of respected industry voters from pro audio publications as well as members of professional music, technical and creative organizations, along with select NAMM members carefully evaluated each entry before selecting the Aureus as a finalist.

Ease of use begins with quick setup, and the Aureus digital mixer packages presets for channels, EQ, gate, compressor, scenes, and shows. The Aureus provides the ability to save and store presets, scenes, and even an entire mix onto a USB drive. The onboard dock allows a tablet to be placed as a second screen, so users can monitor the entire mix while adjusting a specific channel or separate group on the mixer.

For ultimate workflow, the Aureus offers 14 dedicated encoders, 9 motorized faders (100 mm), and 45 dedicated backlit buttons. It can connect to just about any audio source thanks to its 16 XLR-1/4’’, RCA, Bluetooth (stereo-long range), and USB (A/B) inputs. Phantom power (48 V) is available for microphones on the 16 channels. Combine that with 14 outputs, including 10 XLR, USB, and AES digital, and the Aureus will tackle just about any sound reinforcement application.

Standouts on this board include the two USB ports. USB A is for saving and storing scenes, presets, uploading firmware, and for recording stereo out. USB B is used for audio streaming, an important feature for live streaming church services or other live events online.

The Aureus offers a wide selection of reverb and delay through Peavey’s exclusive built-in FX series digital effects (23 effects total across 2 engines) with simple and advanced modes. The 5-band EQ is fully parametric for ultimate control and precision on each frequency.

With 8 busses, 2 mains, and 4 DCA, the Aureus offers plenty of flexibility, whether users are behind the panel or nearby with remote control via onboard Wi-Fi. Password-assigned busses allow each musician to not only have their own mix, but also to control it using any device that can open an HTML5 compatible browser. Users can connect up to 10 devices simultaneously to adjust any aspect of the mix.

Further enhancing customization, the Aureus includes 3 programmable mute groups and 6 dedicated mute functions, along with dedicated controls on the solo function. Data I/O includes the onboard Wi-Fi and Ethernet remote, while computer connectivity consists of Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and USB port. The unit also includes a 1.25” headphone jack.

The Aureus is rack-mountable and measures 6.5’’ high, by 15’’ wide, and 19.5’’ deep. The feature-packed unit weighs in at a very portable, gig-ready 16 pounds. Whether used for mixing in a club, church, conference center, sports field, arena, or any other place requiring professional audio, the Aureus digital mixer is the perfect solution for world-class workflow and audio quality in a compact, easy-to-use format.

The NAMM TEC Awards will be held on June 4, 2022 in Anaheim, California at The NAMM Show, the global gathering which unites the musical instrument, pro audio and entertainment technology industry.
