Totowa, NJ–The new APB-DynaSonics ProRack-Monitor™ mixer features 16 mic/line input channels, all with the same high-quality mic preamplifier found in the company‘s popular Spectra Series consoles. The ProRack-Monitor combines minimum phase shift circuitry, expressive EQ and a number of sophisticated design features to ensure exceptional audio quality and performance.
The ProRack-Monitor is unique in that it allows the user to create eight (8) Stereo mixes and two (2) Mono mixes, all from a 10-rack space format. All eight stereo mixes are generated from the input channels using rotary controls for level and small, horizontally mounted slide faders (with center-detent) for panning. The two additional mono mixes on rotary controls can be sourced pre or post the channel’s main level control. Each channel also includes separate, internally illuminated Mute and PFL switches and 6-segment LED meters.
Other key ProRack-Monitor features include Insert points on all inputs and outputs, and a separate line input to each mix. A variable frequency high-pass filter is included on each input channel with a 20Hz to 400Hz sweep range at 12dB per octave for detailed, tunable control.
The ProRack-Monitor‘s sophisticated internal EQ design is also based on Spectra Series console circuitry and features fixed high and low frequency EQ bands and two mid-sweep EQ bands with a one-octave bandwidth.
Stereo outputs are fitted with high-quality 60mm faders, separate left & right LED metering, internally illuminated Mute and AFL switches and a separate stereo return input. The stereo return can be used for effects return into a mix, bus expansion or as input for click-track or pre-recorded instrument tracks.
Each of the 18 outputs features XLR balanced connectors and Line (bus) inputs with each pair routed through return faders associated with each stereo master output section and pre AFL (solo) TRS insert connectors. The eight stereo return inputs (via 16 TRS connectors) feed the return fader located next to each of the output faders. Output may be switched to mono operation by front panel switch, making use of only the left inset point feeding both left and right output connectors.
Other features include a built in passive microphone splitter system on the rear panel with Pin-1 lift switches; two Mono Aux Sends switchable pre or post fader, and minimum phase-shift circuitry and internal Mother /Daughter Board construction derived from the Spectra console design.
Main metering is provided by 8-segment, paired-output meters on each of the 8 Stereo Output master sections. Master output levels are controlled from eight 60mm stereo faders, with each of these output sections featuring internally illumined Mute and AFL switches. Bus level signal monitoring is by way of bi-color LEDs on each stereo mix bus pair.
The mixer‘s rear panel can be rotated and locked to any of three preset angles: 90ŗ, 135ŗ, or 180ŗ. Input preamp switches are provided for 48-volt Phantom Power, Polarity Reverse, Mic/Line select and Mic-Pad. An adjustable lamp dimmer is provided for the 4-Pin XLR connector for use with (optional) gooseneck lamp. The ProRack-Monitor‘s 100-240 VAC, 50/60Hz power supply is a plug-in module that can be easily replaced in the field without having to disassemble the mixer.
