The Series 68 analog consoles have been developed to deliver the core feature set most often needed for analog recording. The 68’s are Split/lnline consoles with individual channels in 8-way panels. Using an 8 subgroup configuration and incorporating 6 Aux sends, its routing options are vast and simple to use. Connections are fast and easy with DB-25’s throughout the board and XLR’s for Master and Main outputs. With a flexible yet powerful 3 band EQ at its core, including selectable channel inserts and monolithic preamps driving the inputs, the Series 68 consoles offer a wide array of summing and mixing options. The sonic quality and compact footprint of the 68’s are able to meet any demand.
The 68’s by design are manufactured to be a more cost effective variant of the fully modular 78’s. Incorporating a similar chassis design and the LED meter bridge, the 68’s have a rugged and proven core. Using a simi-modular design the 68’s are able to effectively reduce their overall costs without a significant sacrifice to serviceability.
All input channels are individual boards, faders included, each in a 8 channel pack. Subgroups are individual boards, faders included, each in a 8 channel pack. Master Channel is an individual channel separated from all others.
Since the inception of this configuration by Trident Audio on the A-Range console in the late 1960’s it has been adopted throughout the industry and remains a standard configuration for our consoles today.
