Roland Systems Group Announces M-48 Personal Mixing System

RSS M-48 Live Personal MixerRoland Systems Group (RSG) is pleased to announce the RSS M-48 Live Personal Mixer and RSS S-4000D Splitter and Power Distributor, an innovative monitoring solution for live performance and studio applications.

For the performing musician wanting the best possible sound quality and flexibility in their individual stage monitor mix, the M-48 offers control over 40 audio sources that can be easily managed in 16 assignable stereo groups. The playing experience is enhanced with level/pan/solo/3-band EQ on each group, high quality built-in reverb for a more appealing sound, ambient mic for better communication with band members as well as physical inputs and outputs for multiple headphones, wedges and powered monitors, interfacing with iPods, metronomes and external recording devices.

Crystal clear sound quality is ensured by use of REAC (Roland’s Ethernet Audio Communication) Cat5e protocol now including REAC Embedded Power eliminating the need for wall wart power at each M-48. Power is supplied via the RSS S-4000D Splitter and Power Distributor, which can provide the digital audio stream and power to up to eight M-48s. Multiple S-4000D can be used in a configuration.

Configurations are straightforward with the ability to control, save and recall all connected M-48’s from either an M-400 V-Mixer or PC (when using other consoles). This allows the FOH engineer or other technical operator to assist in setup and mixing if desired.

Existing M-400 users require the Version 2.0 update which also contains significant additions including support for LCR sound systems, vintage effects, expanded PEQ capabilities, real-time analyzer and other user interface enhancements.

The M-48 Live Personal Mixer can easily be integrated with other digital or analog consoles using a choice of RSS Digital Snakes and included PC software for setup and control. Existing Digital Snake owners will be able to update their units to support personal mixing via a free download from the RSG website.

“The M-48 Live Personal Mixer is a breath of fresh air for live performers,? states John Broadhead, VP of Technology and Communications for RSG. “We’ve provided a way for each musician to monitor exactly what they want to – their order, their grouping, their levels, EQs, reverb – whatever. That may mean very simply a knob or two for the novice all the way to the professional touring musician who likes to tweak. A truly personal and unique mix can finally be achieved by each musician.?
