Desktop Studio Monitor Controller w/ Three Pairs of Stereo Outputs
Consider Your Sources
Based on the hot-selling Central Station PLUS rack-mount control center, the Monitor Station enables you to manage multiple audio sources and sets of monitor speakers, simply and easily, right from your desktop.
This convenient control center provides two sets of stereo, line-level analog ¼” inputs and a pair of RCA analog aux/phono inputs with a defeatable RIAA filter so you can connect a turntable or DVD player.
All three input pairs have the option to be simultaneously available or exclusive, and a Mono switch sums the selected stereo source so you can check for phase problems.
Observing the input levels for the main and cue buses is simple with the Monitor Station’s dual 8-segment LED meters, which can be referenced to +4, +10, or +18 dBu.
Manage Your Destinations
Audition your music with your choice of three stereo pairs of speaker outputs, each with separate level control. All speakers can be simultaneously available, or just one pair at a time, or you can choose between speakers A and B, with speaker output C remaining active to feed a subwoofer.
You also get a pair of line-level main outputs, a pair of line-level cue outputs, and four screaming-loud headphone amplifiers with individual level controls—the equivalent of an HP4 headphone system!
Input selection, speaker selection, and LED meter mode can be set and saved during power up so that you can customize your recording system for the way you work.
A large, conveniently located knob controls the main speaker output level (but not the main line-level outs), and a Dim knob lets you reduce the speaker output by a variable amount. Of course, you can mute the speakers as well.
You can speak to the musicians over the headphone and cue buses using the onboard electret-condenser talkback microphone or connect a mic to the XLR talkback input. The cue signal is automatically dimmed when you use the talkback mic.
