Blackmagic released DaVinci Resolve 17 today, and with it came new hardware including a new Speed Editor and the Fairlight Desktop Console that's going to save you time with your mix. 

Key Features 

  • Channel Status Displays 
  • Multifunction Pan Knob
  • Channel Strip Controls
  • Motorized Faders
  • Monitoring Controls
  • External HDMI Monitoring 


The Fairlight Desktop Console is a portable audio control surface that allows you to mix multiple tracks at once. It features  12 motorized faders, precision control knobs, and illuminated buttons for quickly identifying channels. Users can use the knobs and buttons to control channel parameters, EQ, dynamics, plug-ins, and more. Additionally, each fader has a built-in LCD above the channel strip that displays track information. There's also an HDMI output that allows customers to connect a display. 

There's a lot to like about the console. A control function selector buttons let you assign the buttons and knobs on the panel for different purposes. You can quickly select between master and channel controls, panning, plug-in control, EQ, dynamics, and more. Plus, the Fairlight Desktop Console uses the same high-quality faders as the full-size modular studio consoles. 

The Fairlight Desktop Console won't start shipping until December and will be priced at $3,495.
