In a world that seem to be gradually moving towards working and mixing ‘in the box’, there are still situations where hands-on control is second to none.
Monitor control is one of those cases. Enter MOM – our Monitor Operating Module.
MOM is the perfect, tactile match for one or more AX32 and DX32R units equipped with the PRO|MON|3 monitor control license. The MOM is a remote control, connected via Ethernet, and no audio is actually passing through the unit. The audio-routing magic happens within the AX32 or DX32R and is set up via the DADman software. But once you connect the MOM, the magic now resides right at your fingertips.
MOM will give you everything you would expect from a first-grade hardware monitor controller:
– Large Top-Quality Rotary Knob
– Switching Between Different Sources
– Switching Between Different Monitor Configurations (from Mono to Atmos)
– Mute/Solo Individual Monitor Channels
– Reference Level
The Unexpected Feature
DAD-MOMWe never settle for ‘the standard solutions’ and MOM is no exception to that rule. So there is one feature – and knob on the control surface – that is unique to MOM.
The LAYER function allows you to tailor several different roles in the configuration settings within the DADman software with PRO|MON|3 license.
Now, why would you want that? Well, even though some of the knobs are labeled – and setup by default – to select speaker sets and sources, you can alter what functions they should control freely. Imagine having up to 4 different versions of this controller – each tailored for specific tasks within your production workflow – that you can switch between in seconds.
Another useful application for the layers are for large production rooms where many engineers share the controller. Now, each could tailor their own preset that suits them perfectly. Or in the case where an external producer or director sometimes attends mixing or tracking sessions. Then you could add more MOMs to the room and assign different ‘user roles’. Not everyone has to be able to control the Master Volume.
Seamless Integration and Synchronization
MOM is ready to enter any AX32, DX32R or Avid MTRX-based production environment and will integrate seamlessly with your setup. Thanks to its compatibility with the EUCON control protocol, MOM will easily synchronize and co-exist with other control surfaces, including Avid’s S3 and S6 consoles, Dock Control and the Pro Tools Control App for Apple’s iPad.
