TransAudio Group introduces the Drawmer MC7.1 surround sound monitor controller.
The MC7.1 joins Drawmer’s line of monitor controllers, offering the same circuitry and mix-checking features that have made the Drawmer MC2.1 and MC3.1 popular for stereo work. The MC7.1 adds surround sound interconnectivity and functionality for 7.1, 5.1, stereo, mono, or any other multi-channel format.
High-quality potentiometers provide channel level matching at any volume and its rugged design is built right in Drawmer’s UK factory.
“The intuitive and powerful feature set, pristine sound quality, and reasonable price point of the Drawmer MC7.1 make it a must-have tool for anyone who regularly works on surround sound projects,” says Brad Lunde, founder and president of TransAudio Group. “It’s exciting to watch Ivor Drawmer and his engineering team apply the deep insights in the art and science of analog design, that they learned from their legendary studio processors, to the world of monitor controllers.
“Sure, a monitor controller is a little less exciting than, say, a tube compressor, but professionals who need to use a surround sound monitor controller day in and day out will appreciate how fast and reliable their workflow will become with the Drawmer MC7.1.”
The all-analog Drawmer MC7.1 has two sets of balanced 7.1 inputs, a 7.1 through, a balanced stereo input, and a front panel aux input. It has a balanced 7.1 output and a balanced stereo output with its own subwoofer option. Intuitive controls allow users to direct any surround sound channels to the surround LR or stereo mains, where comprehensive mix checking features (e.g. solo low/mid/high bands, mono, polarity reverse, LR swap) make quick work of complicated projects.
The Drawmer MC7.1 Controller is now shipping.
