MartinSound MonitorMAX – No Longer Available

Stereo monitor controller with cue control and talkback with remote
MFR# MX-MON

Product Description

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.

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.
