Because of their comprehensive set of integrated features – like equalizer and effects units – the Compact Mixing Systems CMS1000/1600/2200 are professional mixers offering an optimized all-in-one solution for basically any application.
DYNACORD CMS consoles are quickly set up. Complicated rack configuration and interference-prone wiring of several single components cease to apply. The extremely low noise and low distortion discrete microphone preamps built-into the CMS 1000/1600/2200 provide excellent audio quality, setting new standards in the field of professional mixer technology.
Specially designed Gain Potentiometers allow ergonomic fader control and additionally provide an extended control range of 60 dB. Group-switch-able +48V phantom power, Vocal Voicing filters, 3-channel tone control section with semi-parametric midrange, 4 AUX channels, PFL and MUTE, newly designed dust-proof ALPS-fader controls and the four almost identically laid out stereo channels with additional microphone inputs are only a few details of the professionally equipped inputs section. Master and AUX 3+4 output signals are electronically balanced and output via XLR-type connectors. Relay switching efficiently suppresses switching noise. Separate pre/post fader switching of the AUX 3+4 busses is provided within the master section. Two feedback filters in the monitor busses, master standby switch, tape input and two 7-band graphic equalizers, which can optionally be used for the master or AUX 3+4 busses complete the professional feature set of the master section. Two parallel operating and individually controllable 24-bit digital stereo effects units with 48-bit algorithms offer a total of 2 x 99 “live sound-optimized” presets in studio quality. Room and plate hall, echo and chorus reverb, mono/stereo delay, modulated delay effects like chorus or flanging as well as several special effects are comfortably selectable via up/down keys.
Storing the preferred start-up presets for both effects units is possible in program mode. These presets are present instantly after powering on the mixer. The use of a global or two separate footswitches allows for global or individual switching the effects on and off. A 12V/5W litlite mixer lamp can be connected at the lamp output, which is protected against short-circuit and overload. Stable enclosures with metal protective covers ensure trouble-free transport of the mixers without need for extra flight-cases.
