STUDIO HEADPHONE MIXER
We subtitle this unit "THE MORE ME BOX" because this is possibly its most important feature. Along with the typical cue mix or the control room mix, the engineer can offer each musician a fader dedicated to their own instrument. Experience teaches us that each musician always wants to hear more of themselves and that trying to meet this demand with several musicians and with too few aux sends is quite a mind bending challenge. As long as each musician's headphone is plugged into a separate station, each can have their own custom mix within arms reach. This frees up the engineer to concentrate on recording and getting the best sound and allows the producer to focus on performances because the musicians' monitoring needs are met quickly and easily. It also frees up console aux sends so that they may be used for effect sends. With this station you will be able to offer musicians a better sounding headphone amp than most major studios and be able to provide some significant improvements over basic stereo cue boxes or any other headphone system we know of.
Each HP-112 station provides 12 x balanced inputs: eight mono channels with FADER and PAN plus two stereo feeds with rotary switches providing stereo, mono and SIM processing. This cool SIM setting monos the bass which makes it sound more like listening to real speakers.
Channel one has a PHASE switch, intended primarily for the vocalist. Voice is heard through the bones in the head as well as the phones. You may not hear much difference switching the phase in the control room but the person at the mic certainly will. Polarity gets inverted all the time in studios which may explain why sometimes the vocal is so loud in the phones or sounds different on playback to the singer. Our PHASE switch sure does come in handy.
All of the channel inputs appear on ELCO multi-connectors, wired to ADAT standard, making linking or daisy-chaining several stations easy. See ELCO pinout here. We approach cable making as a custom order which means prices depend on length and quantity and connector choice. Please contact us for a factory quote.
The Mute controls the Power Amps directly and steps through ON, MUTE, LEFT MUTE and RIGHT MUTE then back to ON. This is such an important feature! By muting one channel, if the musician wants to put one can on his head, sound from that speaker won't be leaking into your overheads! Each station also has bass and treble EQ controls carefully optimized for headphones. The master stereo volume control feeds the built-in power amps which produce peak voltage (equivalent to) well over a hundred watts per channel to drive up to 4 headsets at any volume the musician may choose. No weeny little beetles like you'd find in your iPod here!
The two features that impress the musicians the most are the easy communication with one button and the fabulous sonic quality even at extreme levels. Ever clever, the ELCO connectors also provide pins used for several other communication and monitoring functions, including TALK and INTERRUPT. There are also hidden features on the ELCO's such as the ability for the control room to monitor each stations' headphone mix or the to hear the unswitched "always-on" individual station microphone.
See installation and wiring notes of advanced features here. The Manley cue mixers are versatile systems, to be sure.
