Complete Computer Control

FOH Rack features an embedded Windows XPe computer platform running D-Show® software as the central point of control for the entire VENUE system. Windows XPe is known for its robust programming options and renowned reliability. Used in conjunction with Digidesign’s DSP Mix Engine cards, the computer allows FOH Rack to provide unparalleled headroom for onboard processing with full TDM plug-in compatibility.



Onboard Local I/O

FOH Rack provides a host of dedicated local I/O via the FOH I/O card, which offers local monitor outputs, analog and digital (AES or S/PDIF) 2-track input and outputs, MIDI I/O, eight TRS insert send and return jacks, and a COM input that can handle either microphone or intercom inputs. This local I/O is offered standard, and comes at no expense to mic/line input or output counts.



One Software Platform — Total File Portability

All VENUE components operate under one common software platform — D-Show software, the industry’s easiest yet most comprehensive control software. D-Show software sets new standards in operational efficiency and workflow, giving you instant access to and full control over any function of the system. Just a simple button push on the control surface or click from the screen gives you access to inputs, outputs, show files, snapshots, patchbays, plug-ins, and more. And because all VENUE systems share this same software platform, you can create and load show files for use on any VENUE control surface; no need to learn new software or build new show files if you switch VENUE control surfaces or re-scale your system.





Creative Processing with Bundled Plug-ins

FOH Rack comes with two powerful bundles of plug-ins — the newly updated VENUEPack 3.0 and VENUEPack Pro 3.0. Both bundles offer some of the best and most highly coveted professional processing in the industry from Digidesign®, Bomb Factory®, Focusrite, and other Digidesign Development Partners™. Both bundles are worth thousands of dollars each on their own!





Customize with FOH Rack Options

FOH Rack has a number of options available to meet your needs and the needs of others. Whether you want more processing power, need to expand your local and/or remote I/O counts, or integrate Pro Tools|HD® or Pro Tools LE® recording and playback for Virtual Soundcheck and multitrack archiving, FOH Rack options are easy to install and deploy.
