The Tonelux MP1a is a DISCRETE mic preamp with a DIRECT INPUT on the front panel. The MIC IN is transformer coupled in and out, and has a 20 dB PAD switch (effects both MIC and DIR), a 48V Phantom switch and a Phase or POLARITY switch. The PAD and POLARITY switches effect both inputs. Identical to the MP1, but with the addition of an OUTPUT FADER to control the record level of the Mic Pre Output. The inner, or larger (silver) knob sets the mic pre gain and the outer smaller (black) knob controls the output level. We chose the fader control for the outer knob so the gain knob, once set, won't be bumped when adjusting the output level.
The PAN control is a standard stereo pan circuit with a center detent. The FX2 has a unique MUTE circuit that when pressed, the LED turns RED, but when the module is ON, the LED serves as a level presence indicator, illuminating green to show signal presence. This is very useful in live recording when you need to know quickly if a channel has signal or which has the loudest signal on it. It is also perfect for identifying which channel has the Kick and which has the Snare.
The FX2 can be used by it self as a inexpensive dual stereo mixer for DAW or LIVE use when a simple stereo bus is all that is required.
When used with the MX2 series, the addition of FOUR FX2 modules will give you 8 returns and the masters for the FOUR sends on the MX2, saving you the space of having FOUR SM1 master modules.
The FX2 can also be used as an additional set of sends, fed from the direct output of the MX2, as the outputs of each panner can be internally set to feed any of the 16 available busses in the VRACK, allowing up to EIGHT sends from each MX2, including the onboard set of FOUR sends.
The Tonelux MX2 Mixer is a stereo line mixer with many features of a large frame console. The MX2 has a unique MUTE circuit that when pressed, the LED turns RED, but when the module is ON, the LED serves as a level presence indicator, illuminating green to show signal presence. This is very useful in live recording when you need to know quickly if a channel has signal or which has the loudest signal on it. It is also perfect for identifying which channel has the Kick and which has the Snare. The SOLO button is both a AFL or PFL, allowing both functions to be selected globally in the Control Room Section.
The FADER knob is the channel fader, with the ability to insert an external fader from the rear panel.
The PAN control is a standard stereo pan circuit with a center detent.
The INSERT button can act as a balanced insert for outboard equipment, or it can be used as a MIC PRE/TAPE PLAY switch for live recording to check the mic pre output and then the output of the machine for confidence checks or post recording playback without repatching anything.
The ST button turns on the stereo bus, which allows the module to send to the aux sends without going to the stereo bus.
The Polarity switch is a standard phase inverter for the main signal path.
The 4 sends are internally configurable for PRE or POST fader signal. The MX2 has an optional DIRECT transformer output. The Tonelux EQ4P is a DISCRETE Parametric Equalizer with some very unique features. Notice that the panel has no Q control. The filter Q control is in relation to the Boost and Cut control, and uses a "Constant Energy Curve" that keeps the bandwidth wider at lower boost or cut levels and becomes narrow at higher boost or cut levels. This is musically pleasing. The curve is identical to many classic equalizers and is one of the reasons they are preferred over newer designs. When the PEAK button pressed, the 3 yellow "peak" buttons keep the width at a constant 1/3 octave for more precision control.
The High Frequency has a Shelving button instead of a Peak button. Since the Constant Energy Curve is so broad in the lower frequencies, there is no need for a low frequency shelf button.
With 4 bands of controls, each of the lower 2 have slightly different frequencies, allowing the lower band to go to 16 Hz, and the upper 2 bands are identical. The IN button is a silent IN/OUT button that does not bypass the unit, but it bypasses the filters.
