GMIX - Mixers
The GMIX is a modern, modular audio mixer concept that offers comfortable, easy to operate control surfaces to manage a lot of sophisticated functions. The mixer surface consists of individual modules that can be installed into the console at the places that best suit the operational and ergonomic requirements of the individual customers:
Fader modules with or without motors, the central module with the antenna, aux, intercom and monitoring controls, the main module with the 6.5” TFT screen used to set up the mixer configurations, filter parameters, etc., and the information module with 10.5" screen to display the levels, timers, ON AIR state, etc.
A larger external display placed besides the mixer can be used instead of the information module to indicate the output levels and other parameters the customer would like to have displayed. Additional modules, e.g. larger keyboards for audio monitoring, telephone modules to remotely control a telephone screener system, etc, are available.
The lay-out of the surfaces and the mixer functions can be adapted to the customer’s individual requirements.
The console remotely controls the switching circuitry and the DSPs installed in the matrix.
Other available modules: Info Module, Telephone Module.
Some examples for the functions realised on the main module are:
Entering the password either by selecting it from the system memory by using the rotary knobs, or by keying it on the decimal keyboard of the central module
Allocation of the input signals to the faders by means of the three rotary knobs that select the lines in three hierarchical tables. It is also possible to dial the line number on the decimal keyboard of the central module. Using the function keys, it is possible to choose whether the left or the right channel should be connected, whether in mono or stereo, and whether the return line is to be configured in (n-1)
Allocation of the fader outputs to the various output lines similar to the inputs as described above
Adjustment of the filters by means of the rotary knobs. The operator can choose two different operator levels manually (a default level can already be selected with the login): basic and advanced with graphic display of the filter curves
Adjustment of the compressors, also with two operation levels
Possibility to select the sequence of fader - filter - compression
Possibility to select the Aux tapping point
One keystroke sets all filters and compressors to zero, another one sets individual filters to zero
Saving and recalling the configuration of individual channels or of the complete mixer, of the input and output configurations, of the filter and compressor adjustments
Transfer of a channel configuration to another mixer
Allocation of the channel configuration received from another mixer to one of the own fader channels
Remote setting of a fader channel of another mixer
Recall of the “Help” text that also offers the possibility to create hyper texts. The texts themselves can be written by the customers
By pressing the SEL key of a fader, the display of the main module shows the parameters of this fader channel
After pressing the TIMER key on the main module, the starting time for the downcounter can be introduced by a rotary knob on the main module or by the decimal keyboard of the central module. The function keys on the main module determine whether the timer shall count upwards, downwards or downwards to a determined time
When another fader of the same group is pulled, the timer starts anew
