in 1998, 01v is a digital console fully equipped, designed for a
wide range of applications and for a large market share due to the
extremely competitive quality/price ratio.
The console is an evolution of the ProMix project, upgraded with
the 02R 32-bit technology and fully equipped with a complete set
of digital I/O in order to satisfy all users needs.
The mixer provides 24 inputs channels (16 analog + 8 digital) with
4 bus routing.
equipped. The console includes 4-bands parametric EQ, dynamic
processors, high quality effects (the same REV500 reverb DSP processor)
and delay functions (up to 250 ms) for the 16 main channels, for
the 4 bus and the stereo master output.
2-bands parametric EQ are available for the other 8 channels usually
connected to 1-8 digital tape returns. If needed, tape returns can
also be routed to the main channels (globally or independently).
In this way, the flexibility of the system is greatly expanded.
Memories and Libraries. Scenes memories control motorized
faders and console parameters, allowing immediate program recall
and saving time for the console set up.
Memory locations ("libraries") dedicated to EQ, dynamic processors
and effects are also available. Automix functions are not implemented,
but parameters can be controlled via MIDI.
Versatility. Being a very flexible console, 01v can be used
in a wide range of audio applications. Currently, 01v it's a "must"
for quality project studios, but it can be successfully used in
8-tracks digital recording sessions or in live situations.
To make more fast operations, control interface includes "solo"
switches for each channel stripe and a mini-channel section with
pan and EQ dedicated controls.
6 independent Aux Send are implemented (2 for internal effects and
4 sent to external outs) and, in case of stage monitoring, the built-in
effects returns can also be conveniently sent to musicians.
About A/D inputs, in addition to 2 stereo channels, 12 mic inputs
are available with both balanced phone jack and XLR connectors (all
providing phantom power assignable to 1-6 and 7-12 inputs groups).
Moreover, 2 or more 01v can be linked together with digital cascade
and synchronization facilities .
Compact. 01v compact size (480 mm. width x 520 mm. lenght)
allows easy use in any environment. Carriage is also easy due to
the low weight (approximately 18 kg.).
Competitive Q/P ratio. No doubts that 01v is a really convenient
and affordable console, especially considering quality and features.
for the most part of the digital consoles, 01v operation is based
on the "selected channel" concept.
Each digital channel is equipped with a fader and a [SELECT] button
enabling parameters setting on the related channel when pressed.
In this way the mini-channel control panel can be assigned to the
selected channel , allowing to work as in a conventional mixer.
MIXER FUNCTIONS AND CONCLUSIONS
backlit LCD display allows to manage the wide range of functions
not directly assignable to dedicatel controls. The LCD is small,
but the resolution has been increased in comparison with the ProMix
model allowing to show more parameters at the same time. Graphic
quality has been also improved as well as display "refreshing" time.
Functions are recalled on the screen by pressing the switches located
on the left side of the console. Each screen page can be also automatically
recalled. For instance, it's possible to program the console so
that any EQ manual setting in the selected channel area, automatically
displays the relevant EQ curve.
Important functions also include libraries storage/recall (available
for EQ, dynamic processors and effects), I/O re-routing, grouping
(for fader and mute) and channel pairing.
With reference to the audio quality, 01v is a professional unit,
comparable to the 03D and 02R models.
