MartinSound MonitorMAX – No Longer Available
Part of Martinsound's MAX Surround Solutions, the MonitorMAX lets you add stereo monitor and cue control with talkback to your workstation, mixer or MultiMAX.
MonitorMAX adds the missing monitor interface for modern day DAW production systems without the real estate of a mixing console. It's a single-space rack- mounting unit housing all of the necessary interface connections and electronics, including a talkback microphone preamplifier, plus a remote controller. The remote features Monitor and Cue routing switches for up to 10 stereo sources, talkback, and level controls, plus a LCD window to display levels, mode information, and Setup menus.
Eight professional and two consumer level stereo sources can be connected to MonitorMAX. Sensitivity of the consumer inputs can be adjusted within a setup menu from 6 to 26dB of gain in 0.1dB increments, allowing a wide range of consumer equipment to be interfaced.
MonitorMAX enables independent routing of all 10 stereo sources to the separate Monitor and Cue paths, using two banks of 10 switches. Source selection for either path can be additive or interlocking (canceling the previous selection), so that any number of sources may be selected and monitored in the control room or routed to studio headphones or loudspeakers. The Monitor path includes a stereo output that may be used as a record or meter feed.
Mute, Dim and Mono switches are provided for the Monitor output, together with switch selection of an alternate pair of control room monitors, while the Cue output includes a Mute switch. Separate rotary level controls are included for the Monitor and Cue outputs. The Monitor rotary control is also used when accessing Setup menus.
Pressing the large, easy-to-reach Talkback switch dims cue output by 20dB while activating the talkback microphone. The flexibility of the system even allows both monitor paths to be configured as cue feeds with independent talkback level and the Alt Monitor output handling studio loudspeakers. Plus the Talkback switch and twin talkback logic inputs can be individually setup to route talkback just where you want it.
MonitorMAX further enhances the power of Martinsound's MultiMAX by providing additional stereo monitor inputs and extra stereo monitor paths to surround production systems. With MultiMAX 's Downmix output connected as an input source and MonitorMAX 's talkback sense controlling MultiMAX 's external dim logic, MonitorMAX readily outputs your surround mix as stereo cue feeds with talkback for the talent or stereo monitoring in other production rooms, making for a very tightly integrated system.
