03 Channels


The number of cards in the DSP cards determine the number of channels and buses that are available in each S5 Fusion. For a given number of DSP cards, different combinations of channels and buses may be quickly configured using the eMix Mixer Model software. Usually a Mixer Model is chosen during installation and is used throughout the life of the system as it will best match the application requirements of the studio.

Each S5 Fusion channel has:

  • 2 inputs, that may be fed from analog or digital sources (using appropriate converters), labelled A & B. Either A, B or A & B may be selected to feed the channel
  • phase reverse
  • gain trim
  • delay up to 2 secs
  • insert send & return
  • 4 band fully parametric EQ
  • 2 filters
  • dynamics including compress/expand-gate with hysteresis, key input and side chain filter
  • touch sensitive moving fader
  • multi-format panning to group and mix buses
  • up to 32 mix buses
  • up to 24 group buses
  • up to 16 aux send buses
  • solo (APL, PFL, SIP)
  • 2 direct outputs – pre-fader & post-fader

If mic preamps are connected to the channel these additional controls are available which relate to the ML 530 remote mic/ line interface unit :

  • input impedance – hi/lo
  • phantom power
  • hi pass filter
  • analog input gain
