THE DANGEROUS MUSIC SYSTEM COMPLETE INCLUDES:


CONVERT-AD+ - THE MOST ADVANCED STEREO A-D ON THE MARKET

If you thought analog-to-digital converter innovation had taken a snooze, Dangerous Music is about to wake you up with five game-changing innovations. Packed into a single rack space with thr next-generation conversion for the ultimate in musicality and transparency, the CONVERT-AD+ is the most advanced stereo analog-to-digital converter on the market.


CONVERT-8 (qty 2) - DEDICATED MULTI-CHANNEL DIGITAL-TO-ANALOG CONVERSION

Whether you’re tracking, mixing or mastering, the CONVERT-8 will deliver powerful low-end, articulate mids and transcendent highs to every channel in your analog rig. Patched into one of Dangerous's award-winning analog summing units like the 2-BUS+ or the D-BOX+ (or to your favorite analog console) the CONVERT-8 will empower you to create the spacious, three-dimensional soundscapes that only real analog summing can deliver. Compatible with today’s digital signals (including the ubiquitous ADAT format) the CONVERT-8 is ready to take on any mixing or monitoring job from standard stereo and 2.1 to 5.1 and the increasingly popular Atmos format. Recognizing the needs of those who don’t need more analog inputs, the CONVERT-8 brings today’s very best digital-to-analog conversion within reach of any studio.


CONVERT-2 - NEXT-GENERATION CONVERTER

Eager to embrace the opportunity to develop a new and better DAC, Dangerous designed the CONVERT series converters from the ground up, utilizing cutting-edge digital technology coupled to a Chris Muth designed analog circuit that delivers their signature sound: open, articulate and powerful from top to bottom. Loaded with innovative and useful features accessed from an intuitive front panel, the CONVERT-2 tops an elite class of dedicated stereo digital-to-analog converters in both sound and ease of use. The CONVERT-2 goes beyond transparency – you won’t just hear everything, you’ll hear it beautifully.


BAX EQ - THE WORLD’S MOST POPULAR EQ

If you’ve ever adjusted the bass and treble on a hi-end stereo system, a boom box or car stereo, then you’ve used a Baxandall EQ. Originally designed by the now legendary electronics designer Peter Baxandall, these are the world’s most popular EQ curves for a good reason: they are able to improve the sound of anything you throw at them. The Dangerous BAX EQ is the first professional, stand-alone EQ to leverage the famous Baxandall curves, and this version has become an essential classic among mixing, mastering and tracking engineers. It’s so loved, in fact, that most are leaving it patched into their audio path full time where it sweetens and deepens all walks of music day in, day out.


COMPRESSOR - AT WAR WITH THE LOUDNESS WAR

When Dangerous set out to design The COMPRESSOR, they spent over two years figuring out how to achieve modern levels of limiting and compression while avoiding the deadening effects of today’s ultra-limited productions. They make gear that helps you deliver the impact, punch and clarity that brings music to life, and when it comes to compression and limiting the answer was not to avoid it like some purists might, but to deliver an audiophile-grade tool that provides powerful compression and limiting without robbing the music of its life-force. The Dangerous COMPRESSOR points the way to the future of dynamics.


LIAISON - PROGRAMMABLE PATCHING IN ANALOG

Instant recall is no longer just for digital. With the LIAISON from Dangerous Music you can store and recall complex analog patches that include up to six stereo or mono analog paths. You’ll experience the ease and quickness of digital plug-ins with your analog rig! Want to try your favorite mix-buss chain on a piano track? Or quickly compare two analog EQs within that chain? – just push a button. With the onboard, latency-free, audiophile-grade parallel buss, you can blend your processed and unprocessed signals for rock solid parallel effects that otherwise require elaborate large format consoles and patchbays. Recall any of your stored patches instantly, bring individual patches in and out of the signal path for gapless A/B comparisons, get your studio setup for the day’s tracking, mixing or mastering tasks in a flash, and do away with confusing, time-consuming patch recall sheets – all while getting crystal clear sound from all your favorite gear.


2-BUS+ - DEFINITIVE ANALOG SUMMING + COLOR

Dangerous Music invented the stand-alone analog summing mixer with the ground-breaking 2-BUS back in 1999, and now they're redefining mixing yet again with the 2-BUS+. With a redesigned analog summing circuit that exceeds previous specifications, the 2-BUS+ delivers unsurpassed imaging, dimensionality, punch and headroom. While the 2-BUS+ active summing sounds incredible on its own, it now includes three innovative custom color circuits that provide a vast array of flexibly routed tonal options. Harmonics is a euphoric odd- and even-order distortion generator; Paralimit is a hard-hitting FET-style limiter; and X-Former is a pair of custom wound Cinemag output transformers with an exclusive core-overdrive circuit. With it’s elegantly straightforward buttons and knobs, the 2-BUS+ puts endless combinations of robust analog sound at your fingertips. Meticulously developed by the Dangerous team and brilliantly designed by the legendary Chris Muth, the 2-BUS+ embodies our dedication to sacrificing nothing in order to deliver the very best analog products available.

Designed by the renowned Chris Muth, the MONITOR-ST handles all of your input sources, speaker switching, cue, talkback and headphone needs, all in a 1U package with crystal clarity. With its stepped attenuator, five input sources, three speaker outputs, programmable I/O levels, dedicated subwoofer out and more – all accessed via the elegant remote control – you won’t leave the sweet spot while handling all your studio routing effortlessly. the MONITOR-ST is so accurate, clear and flexible that you’ll see its remote atop even the world’s best consoles!
