Trinnov D-Mon 8 Optimizer
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
