Dangerous Music is now shipping its Monitor ST and Monitor SR monitor control systems, which focus on solving monitoring problems associated with DAW-based recording and mixing in studios that lack a traditional console. The Monitor ST ($2,199) is a remote-control–based input source and speaker switcher with integrated cue and talkback systems, including an onboard headphone power amplifier, in a single rackspace. The Monitor ST’s Cat-5 remote-control unit allows engineers to configure and control an entire system from the comfort of their studio’s sweet spot.
The Monitor SR ($1,499) is a companion 6-channel, single-rackspace expansion module providing full 5.1 surround monitoring capability. Studios working in stereo can start with the ST and later expand to surround by adding the SR unit.
The Monitor ST and Monitor SR provide analog stepped-attenuator volume controls; four input sources for switching between DAW outputs, DVD players, CD players, tape machines, etc.; three speaker outputs plus subwoofers for switching between three sets of monitors, two of which can be surround; automatic selection of subwoofer feed between stereo and LFE sources; programmable input gain offsets that allow you to adjust for and store level offsets for different source devices; input level compensation for -10dBV and +4dBu sources; and more.
