MC16

16-Channel Mastering Monitor Controller

The MC16 is designed to monitor surround and immersive audio projects (Dolby Atmos®, Auro 3D®, etc…) in the analog domain, offering the same unrivalled quality as 120V stereo monitoring.

16 Speakers

Sixteen buttons are used to activate the corresponding loudspeakers.

The 16 inputs of Input 1 and Input 2 are routed directly to the outputs to ensures that an output routing of a DAW session always matches the routing in the MC16.

The buttons allow you to insert a label with the exact name of the loudspeaker.

2 x 16

MC16 offers two 16-channel inputs to quickly compare a current project with a reference production.

Monitor Level

This analog potentiometer is used to adjust the monitor level. We developed a 16-level potentiometer, with which we could realize the volume control in the analog domain, because we did not want to accept a digital control, which is afflicted with resolution deficits and limited dynamic range.

Presets

You can save speaker setups to three memory locations. So you can quickly call up a 5.1 or an 11.1 or a 9.1.6 configuration.

In solo mode, three more memory locations are available with the same keys. For example, you can create solo groups for all front speakers and all ceiling speakers and all rear speakers.
