Up to 24 devices may be configured for External sources in any surround format up to 7.1. The monitor matrix is intelligent and automatically selects the appropriate monitor format to match the source’s format.
Monitor Source Selection
Each of the monitor outputs (CR, Mon A, B, C, D) have their own level and source select key. It is important to note that these are digitally controlled analog controls as they provide a quiet and highly stable monitor output stage which is essential when feeding powerful monitors at high levels.
The 8-character display shows the name of the selected source and the switch on the level knob acts as a speaker mute.
The Main Control Room feed can be sent to the Main Monitors, Alt 1, or Alt 2.
Each of the 5 monitor outputs has a Source button. Pressing this activates the Main panel.
Monitor Output Control
Main Control Room Monitor
The Main Control Room speaker section includes a digital readout of level, 8-character source display and dedicated Dim and Mute keys. The active speakers are indicated just above the level control to show which speakers are switched on (L C R etc.).
It is also possible to switch off individual speakers, set dim level and phase reverse the Left speaker. These options are accessible from the CR Output key which brings up menus on the Main panel.
Mon A, B, C & D
By pushing the Mon A, B, C & D level control switch these feeds can be muted.
Monitor Format Fold Down
The Control Room Output key also brings up main monitor fold down options such as folding down a 5.1 feed to LCRS, Stereo or Mono. The way the outputs get folded down, and any level drops, can be set by the user from the eMix software (shown opposite). These settings can be stored as 24 user presets.
