APB-DynaSonics of Totowa, N.J., introduced the ProDesk-8 analog console and ProSpec line of single- and two-rackspace mixers at InfoComm 2010 in Las Vegas.
ProDesk-8 includes eight subgroups and matrices and an 8-channel mute group system with individual channel “Mute Safe” switches. Its 8-bus auxiliary send system can generate mono and switchable stereo mixes with signal sources switch selected on a per-pair basis, pre or post fader and overall in the pre fader position from a switchable pre or post EQ source. A special ninth aux bus is included for direct or variable assignment of channel level to a mono system intended to feed a subwoofer system. In addition, separate Left-Right and discrete Center bus systems are also provided.
The mono input channels EQ section comes directly from APB’s Spectra-C console and includes separate frequency switches for LF and HF frequency bands, and two variable midrange frequency bands plus a variable highpass filter system. The ProDesk-8 will be available in 24, 32, 40 and 48 mono-input formats, will all versions including an additional four stereo line input modules plus two master stereo program input sections.
ProDesk-8 includes an overall opto-isolated remote mute system, and all consoles are fitted with one power supply with an optional second supply available for all models. APB-DynaSonics states that it will begin delivering ProDesk-8 consoles in late summer.
The company’s new ProSpec line is designed for sound contracting applications. It includes both eight mic/line by three-output (L/R/C) and four mix/line plus four stereo line input by three-output (L/R/C) single-rackspace mixers intended for commercial AV applications. These products include Burr-Brown mic preamplifiers.
Also scheduled for introduction were two new ProSpec two-rackspace mixers, one of which includes the ability for automatic or manual microphone and line level control on a per channel basis. Both of these ProSpec models include six mic/line channels, each with a variable highpass filter linked to the channels’ low frequency EQ frequency setting. Both L/R and mono (Center) mix buses are provided, including the two stereo line input channels. Stereo and USB digital line inputs and outputs are also provided.
