The Trinnov D-Mon 8: Much More Than Just Another Monitoring Controller
Monitor control could look very simple to many, but when it comes to managing all the various mixing situations that a sound engineer has to face day after day, they have to get as much power and flexibility as possible.
Not only do engineers have to switch from monitoring 7.1 to a stereo mix without any loss of transient, power response or bandwidth, but they also need to provide musicians with different foldbacks, communicate with them, and/or run a special sub-group into external gear as an insert or connect, in seconds, the producer’s smartphone to share his latest song, and so on.
The Trinnov D-Mon® Series is specifically designed to combine power, fast-and-easy usage and flexibility.
Both Analog and Digital professional inputs and outputs, providing the most pristine sound quality
Facilities to connect the processor via Ethernet and/or MIDI and host almost any protocol to communicate with a large number of other studio equipment
A Switching Matrix to route all signals easily and make any patch set in seconds
Full Audio Routing Matrix with instant recall and ZERO latency assignment
An internal Mixer (from 8 to 16 configurable buses) which can create various sum of stems, main or aux mix, discrete inputs that come in
Comprehensive and intuitive web Control Panel (Source & Speaker selection, Level/Mute/Dim, Intercoms, Headphones, etc.) that any connected device can access (Chrome browser recommended)
The amazing and world-renown Optimizer® to make the perfect tuning of the loudspeaker sets to the studio acoustics
Full Eucon & MIDI compliance (other protocols to come) with the free D-Mon App (MacOS)
Optional SmartMeter® software for accurate Time-Code aware Loudness metering and processing features
The Multi-Purpose I/O Connector
The Multi-Purpose Input/Output connector alone proves how much the D-Mon® is in touch with the real world of professionals.
MIDI, Headphone output, Talk-Back input are wired just like the famous ICON control surfaces, allowing X-Mon® as a replacement in a complete, seamless way
Time-Code is available as a LTC input when you’re running the SmartMeter® to make Loudness metering sessions more effective than ever
GPIOs are located there too, so linking to other equipment for synchronizing switches, lights or a simple pedal is immediate and easy
In and Out For Now and the Future
Input & Output configuration depends on models, but all of them cover the needs of recording or mastering studios, post-production rooms and film mixing suites.
Up to 16 Digital I/Os (AES), enabling any surround sound engineer, drive not only his main mix but also all feeds (like aux sends, sub-groups or stems) within the best possible resolution and sample rate (up to 96kHz)
A switchable 8-channel Digital Insert to hook up an external processing and make instant A/B comparisons or the mastering final cut
Up to 8 Analog Inputs able to be assigned as a Cue, the Talk-back or just used as external sources to be converted to digital for whatever reason
From 12 to 16 Analog Outputs offer all possibilities to address multiple sets of loudspeakers, headphones and outboard gears, all at the same time

Monitor controllers are all about improving your workflow. Most engineers start their home studios with a simple recording interface. When you’ve only got two inputs, a couple monitors and a set of headphones, it’s relatively easy to manage where the signal goes.
As you bring in more gear and evolve your studio space, you'll soon come to realize that you've quickly outgrown this style of set-up. With expansion, it can become more difficult to route the signal where you want it to go. Continue reading →

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
Better than expected! Truly impeccable service. Your team was professional, knowledgeable, provided speedy delivery above and beyond standard. Vintage King Audio is definitely my go to for all of my audio and information needs.
