The DMC is the heart of the mastering studio. The converters, the players, the DAW, the recorders and the speakers are connected to them. The audio quality of the console is therefore crucial. And like all devices of the mastering series, the DMC also works on unparalleled 120V operating voltage.
Inputs & Sources:
Audio signals that shall be processed are connected to the Inputs and audio signals for comparison or playback are connected to the Sources. Four stereo inputs pairs are available for each.
Each input channel can be switched on/off, phase reversed and trimmed in 0.25 dB steps. A stereo input can be switched to mono.
The large potentiometer for the recording gain allows sensitive gain rides. If it is not used, it should not be activated. This keeps the entire control stage outside the signal path.
Monitoring & Inserts:
Three pairs of speakers can be operated for full-range, mid-field and near-field monitors. Speakers D is for a mono loudspeaker.
Preferably a Phonitor headphone amplifier is connected to the Phonitor HP Out, whereby it can be programmed whether the loudspeaker is automatically switched off during headphone operation or not.
The same applies to the subwoofer. It can be programmed with which monitor it is paired and activated together.
The insert return can also be trimmed in 0.25 dB steps to compensate for the finest level differences after an insert chain. The Hermes Mastering Router is preferably connected to the inserts, with which up to eight stereo processors can be connected and freely routed and stored.
In the monitoring section, each loudspeaker channel can be solo’ed and phase reversed.
The large monitoring level potentiometer has an illuminated indicator so that the monitor level can be easily assessed even from a greater distance.
A loudness compensation (+/- 10 dB) can be activated. Alternatively it can be linked to the Insert, Sources or Inputs switches allowing loudness compensation at any stage.
