02 Channels

The number of cards in the DSP SuperCore determine the number of channels and buses that are available in each System 5. For a given number of cards in the DSP SuperCore, 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 System 5 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 mix-minus/group and mix buses
  • up to 48 group buses
  • up to 24 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
