How to Set Up AX32 as a Super-Flexible Monitor Controller
AX32 is such a multi-facetted piece of equipment that you can use for a wide range of applications. And if you add the optional PRO | MON license, you can (also) use it as a full-blown, advanced monitor controller.
POST & LIVE PRODUCTION
Post production for film, broadcast and video games require flexible systems that are ready for many different workflows and monitoring formats. AX32 is your perfect audio routing centerpiece, DD converter, monitor controller and IP Audio hub, connecting all of the dots when mixing in the box. Further, these benefits are also highly relevant in live sound productions.
Audio quality is always a critical factor in music production and mastering. Your microphones, outboard gear and monitors are top of the line, but there is one more link that affects your signal just as much. Converting audio from analog to digital and back is a critical process - and it makes a real and very audible difference. That's why we take AD/DA conversion very seriously.
When you record on location, your primary goal is simply to capture the moment just perfectly. The A/D converters of the AX32 are as clean and transparent as it gets. And if you add the microphone preamp input card, you get some of the cleanest analog inputs you could ever find. Essentially it's like a WYHIWYG solution - What You Hear Is What You Get!
Rotor Film in Berlin are dedicated to film post-production, and on the audible side of things in their large Dolby Atmos and Auro 3D mixing cinema, several AX32 and DX32 unites play key roles…
The audio-routing and monitoring system is quite complex and as part of the ‘engine’ Rotor Film has two AX32 and two DX32 units for D/A conversion as well as D/D between MADI and Dante IP Audio .
“The AX32 units for the ADR stages were highly recommended to us due to the high quality of the AD/DA converters, and now that I have heard them in action, I can only agree that they sound very good indeed.
Also, and most importantly, the DAD boxes caused no technical hiccups along the way whatsoever. It was just a matter of installing, configuring, connect and then forget about it because they simply work.”
"As soon as I heard the AX32, I was like ‘Wow! This sounds really, really great!’ It was like there was a new depth and calmness to the sound that I had never heard before.
It’s hard to explain in words, but I guess that it’s probably what you mean by ‘transparency’ – like there is nothing in between the analog sound and what I can hear in Pro Tools. What you hear is now actually what you get."
AX32 is your digital audio swiss knife and chameleon. It is your audio routing centerpiece, digital format converter, worldclass AD/DA converter and monitor controller. Quite simply, AX32 changes seamlessly between workflows in seconds, optimizing your production time and efficiency.
DX32R gives you the routing flexibility of the AX32 in a compact format. You can't expand the I/O section to the same extent, but with up to 384x384 audio channels matrix you can virtually create any workflow. And if one is not enough, simply connect multiple units via Audinate's Dante IP Audio protocol.
Complete monitor control is an essential part of an efficient workflow if your deliver in surround or 3D audio formats. Set up any monitoring workflow with AX32 or DX32 and add Pro|Mon license for dedicated monitoring features such as bass management, room correction and more.
Post, music, live or location... Nothing makes a satisfied customer like a great-sounding production delivered on time.
You don’t want to rush anything through, of course, but you also shouldn’t have to waste valuable production time on reconfiguring for new workflows when moving between recording, dubbing, mixing, mastering or various monitoring formats.
With AX32, you can create and switch effortlessly between even the most complex routing setups, taking advantage of the super flexible 1500x1500 audio channel matrix as well as DD conversion between AES, MADI and Dante protocols.
Further, you can add AD/DA converter cards for extremely transparent and accurate audio reproduction, encouraging and inspiring you to make wise mix decisions and create amazing productions. In short, convert your studio currency to gold.
Because efficient workflows can easily be the difference between a happy customer and a remix request or a missed deadline.
