Hilo Remote is divided into two main pages, the “Monitor” page and the “RTA” page. The Monitor page extends the Hilo’s already impressive everything-to-everything routing and extensive metering capabilities to include independent level control for every channel and full panning for each input to output channel. Channel pairs may be linked together to have both the left and the right channels work together, or unlinked to allow independent control over each mono channel. As with Hilo itself, the Headphone output and the ADAT input only show up on the monitor page when the device is actually connected to the Hilo.
On the left side of the Monitor page, the “Adapter” panel shows Sample Clock information including clock source, current sample rate, and SynchroLock status. Line In and Line Out trim settings can be monitored and changed, as well as selection of Digital In Source, Digital Out Mode and enabling Sample Rate Conversion. The Adapter panel may be hidden any time. The LSlot section allows easy routing, monitoring and metering for up to 16 channels of USB or Thunderbolt I/O.
