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.
As is explained in this video overview and walk-through captured by Pro Tools Expert / Production Expert's Mike Thornton at BVE 2018 in London, the AX platform started life as a high-end A/D converter, but has since then evolved and become the versatile audio-routing, AD/DA/DD conversion and monitor control beast that it is today.
First of all, and as already mentioned, you need to add the optional PRO | MON software license, which adds pristine monitor control capabilities to the DADman control software.
Depending on your I/O set up of your AX32, you can configure monitoring setups that support new, immersive audio formats, including Dolby Atmos and Auro 3D.
Naturally, you will also get fold-down features that allows you to listen to e.g. a 5.1 surround mix in stereo or a 2.1 system, but importantly, we also have the 'reverse' functionality - a fold-up feature so to speak - that spreads out e.g. a 5.1 mix across the channels in a Dolby Atmos playback system.
Ultimately, you can set up AX32 with PRO | MON to be the monitor control centerpiece that you can use to switch between various monitor setups, editing rooms, mixing stages, etc.
Further, you can add one or more MOM (Monitor Operating Module) for hands-on control with the possibility to add dedicated user roles to the system and you take monitor control convenience to a whole new ballpark. Smooth production workflows are all that matters, and flexibility is the keyword in that regard!
