In an exciting joint Behind the Sound interview, the minds behind the most significant software update to the Omnia.11 flagship audio processor discuss the newest features offered in version 4.0. With new and updated presets coupled with the introduction of the brand new Silvio Clipper, which provides a cleaner, brighter and more open sound without a loudness penalty, v4.0 is ALL ABOUT THE SOUND!

So, where exactly did this 4.0 update come from, and what sparked the vision for making the best even better? We were able to snag Omnia Founder Frank Foti away from his train work for a few minutes (Frank’s passion, second only to audio processing), with 4.0 co-developer Cornelius Gould to give us a look behind the sound at the journey to v4.0.

Video: Omnia VOLT Audio Processing Brings "Clarity and Punch" to Livewire Ecosystem

By Justin Gelske on Aug 10, 2021 2:41:34 PM

In our recent Behind The Sound interview, we got a chance to speak with Tom Van Gorkom. Tom has been in his role as broadcast engineer for Radio Esperanza (Hope Radio) for the last 8 years. He was recently tasked with upgrading all the equipment. After reviewing options and talking to users, he chose Axia for their mixing consoles. He continued to remodel their studios, one at a time. Eventually, for their webplayer and phone app, they went with Z/IPStream R/1 so they could feed it with Livewire and have control over the audio routing to it.

More recently, their audio processors were randomly locking up at the transmitter sites, so they decided to try out Omnia VOLT. Tom was impressed with the interface, flexibility, and clarity. Tom then implemented Omnia MPX Nodes to clear up STL distortion and overshoots, which allowed them to install the VOLT at the studio. Sure enough, it worked well, allowing them to send the processed audio to two FM stations from one VOLT fed by Livewire. Hear all about Tom's projects and decision-making in this interview.
