  • Header Polaris Evolution 1600x420 De2

The First Fully Personalised Network Mixing Console

POLARIS evolution is based on a novel digital mixing DSP concept that can be controlled from an advanced touch screen user interface. Driven by the desire to create the most flexible and scalable system on the market, the SALZBRENNER engineering team proudly presents the first cloud-based audio processing system for pro applications.

The POLARIS evolution concept allows multiple users to share a single DSP core—a major benefit for multipurpose venues, broadcast applications, OB trucks and any project or operation requiring maximum flexibility.
Thanks to a revolutionary audio network concept, rigid constraints are a thing of the past. With POLARIS evolution, live, theatre and broadcast productions can be run concurrently on the same DSP engine!

Obviously, the POLARIS evolution user interface can be complemented with iOS and Android devices to handle the required tasks within the networked POLARIS evolution environment.

This makes POLARIS evolution special
The modular and scalable audio production platform with various hardware components


  • Variable: freely combine POLARIS evolution user interfaces according to your project needs
  • Adaptive: POLARIS evolution remembers your workflow
  • Flexible: free assignment of DSP resources where and when you need them
  • Expandable: start with a basic package and expand as much as the need arises
  • Interactive: easy integration with external control systems


  • Individual: personalised interface for each project and/or specific users
  • Team player: multi-user operation with shared channel and event automation, etc.
  • Fast: easy and fast configuration changes and parameter settings
  • Outstanding: pristine audio through modular I/O
  • Future proof: expand feature sets through new control and/or audio plug-ins
  • Network enabled: complete system control over internet/WiFi, tablet PCs, Android & iOS devices

  • Self-Learning through Tags

    Most repetitive tasks for the configuration of new projects can be automated thanks to POLARIS tags. Users can load a channel tagged “main vocal”, for instance, with previously stored settings for the LPF, dynamics processors, reverb processing, etc.
  • Fast Editing

    The multitouch screens on the POLARIS access console and the POLARIS view monitor allow for lightning-fast routing operations, assignments, copying and parameter settings. Also, the system only displays the relevant parameters for a given operation for fast and error-free tweaks.
  • Customized User Screens

    All control and processing elements in POLARIS evolution are, in fact, plug-ins. This not only provides maximum flexibility but also allows operators to easily prepare customised user interfaces. Thanks to the underlying programming platform, such custom configurations can be programmed in a snip.
