JBL Professional just introduced the MSC1 Monitor System Controller – a new product that integrates monitor system control and tune-ability.
It includes features that can be found in large mixing consoles to control essential monitoring functions from the mix position. Since the acoustic issues in the room can compromise the quality of the mix, the MSC1 includes JBL‘s RMC Room Mode Correction Technology that tunes the monitor system to over come low frequency problems in any room.
The MSC1 provides the ability to monitor up to three 2-channel input sources, such as a mixing console, computer workstation and personal music player while controlling the volume of the monitor system and connected headphones. The MSC allows connection of two sets of speakers and a subwoofer. The primary “A” speaker outputs include user-defined monitor EQ and JBL RMC to tune the system to the room. The subwoofer output has its own level control, selectable crossover settings and RMC to perfectly blend a sub with the “A” speakers. The “B” speaker outputs allow connection of a secondary set of studio monitors. Included MSC1 Control Center Software allows access to user-adjustable settings including speaker equalization, subwoofer crossover frequency, subwoofer polarity and level, and fine-resolution delay that can be applied to compensate for variations in speaker and subwoofer distance relative to the listening position.
“With the launch of our new LSR2300 Series Studio Monitors, we wanted to offer a most affordable solution that enhances the work-flow while tackling problems in the room. Our new MSC1 provides engineers and musicians with a highly affordable, highly functional option to turn any room into an optimized environment for mixing audio”, said Peter Chaikin, JBL Director of Recording and Broadcast Marketing.
The MSC1 will be available in October for $375.00.
