The next generation of creative audio gear blends the boundaries between studio and stage, between creating and performing. It is modular and allows for endless combinations that help you do what you want to do, but better.
We wanted to create a personal artist's console to be used as an instrument. Shape and feel your music not just when creating it, but also when performing it on stage.
Since no two artists or bands are the same, nor should your consoles be identical. The signal processing and mixing section are fully configurable to fit your setup.
A small electronic band with a few synths, sequencer and a bass guitar? A DJ/producer that tags along a computer, a sampling machine and a bag of real vinyl? We’ve got you covered.
For the signal processing section, we went with the 500 series format. You get 10 slots for 500 modules allowing you to tailor your needs by choosing from our own Rodec 500 modules but also any other available on the market.
Two mono slots can be combined into a stereo slot and fitted with our stereo backplane cassettes. These can be filled up with Rodec's 100 series format almost like you would do with plugins in your DAW. We would love this format to be embraced by the modular community to create additional “plugins” . A stereo backplane has 22 units of height. Typical modules are between 6 and 10 units high.
The fader section can be configured with mono faders, stereo faders for instruments or computer output and DJ faders (both with fader or rotary control). All music channels feature programmable mute and solo buttons that can be grouped into scenes and recalled when creating and performing.
Analog is cool, but you may want to use your console in a hybrid setup, together with a computer. A low-latency high quality, pluggable ADC/DAC extension is available separately. This allows you to stream multi-channel audio out of and into your computer.
The master section has a slot to insert a digital FX module with delay and reverb that automatically link to AUX 1 and AUX 2. You can also attach your own Fx by connecting them to the analog AUX send and return sockets.
