Blackmagic Design Fairlight Desktop Console Specs:
With its compact form and pro-level features, the Blackmagic Design Fairlight Desktop Console offers independent mixers and small postproduction studios a space-saving, purpose-built USB control surface for maximizing workflow efficiency with DaVinci Resolve’s Fairlight page.
The Fairlight Desktop Console provides 12 powerful channel strips, each with a touch-sensitive, motorized 100mm fader, an assignable multifunction pan knob (also touch-sensitive), a high-resolution color LCD screen, solo and mute buttons, and a multifunction select button. Use them as traditional per-channel console controls or switch to Focus mode to utilize the knobs and select buttons of all channels to adjust the parameters or plug-ins of a single track.
With logical navigation and transport controls and a high-quality search dial, you can move around your project with ease, speed, and ergonomic comfort, whether you’re recording automation or zooming in on a specific location. The Fairlight Desktop Console also functions as a flexible monitor controller with dedicated buttons for source selection, speaker dim and mute, switching between headphones and speakers, and talkback control.
The Fairlight Desktop Console connects to your computer via a USB Type-C connection (cable included) and boasts an HDMI output for visually monitoring all console activity.
External HDMI Monitoring
For direct visual feedback, you can add an HDMI display to the Fairlight Desktop Console. This allows you to see an extensive graphical display of everything happening on the console. You’ll be able to see channel strip information, levels, equalization, dynamics processing, plug-in interfaces, and more. That means you don’t have to open pop-up windows on top of your timeline.
For example, when you adjust EQ settings, its interface will be displayed on the screen as you turn the knob. The screen automatically switches to show you buses, in-line channel-strip controls, or single-channel controls when in focus mode. There’s no configuration needed, simply plug in an HDMI monitor and start working.
