Today at the IBC show, Roland Systems Group added to its extensive V-Mixing System lineup by introducing the new RSS by Roland M-380 Digital Mixing Console. The M-380 V-Mixer is a 48-channel console that possesses all of the powerful features and extensive benefits of the award-winning M-400 V-Mixer but in a
compact rackmount footprint.
The M-380 Mixing Console provides an additional console choice in the growing V-Mixing System lineup that also consists of Digital Snakes, Personal Mixing and Multi-Channel Recording.
The M-380 V-Mixer features rapid recall of setups, 100mm motorized and touch sensitive faders, an 800 x 480 color screen, and dedicated knobs for EQ, Pan, and Gain. The M-380 V-Mixer has up to 48-channel mixing capability including digital patch-bays, built-in effects processors, 16 Aux/Mon sends, 8 Matrices, 8 DCA’s, 8 Mute Groups, built-in stereo recording/playback and support for LCR configurations.
This fully digital system is built on REAC (Roland Ethernet Audio Communication) and eliminates the bulk and noise susceptibility typically associated with analog snakes and replaces it with cat5e (Ethernet/LAN) cable. It is easy to use and sets up in minutes by plugging in one lightweight cat5e cable from a choice of Digital Snake stage units to the compact M-380 V-Mixer making it ideal for corporate presentations, installations and portable applications.
The system generates superior sound quality by converting analog inputs to 24-bit digital streams at the stage end via high-quality mic preamps located near the source. The VMixing System then secures the quality of audio signal throughout the complete system path en route to the M-380 V-Mixer, back to any outputs and on to limitless split positions.
The 40-channel assignable output split can be used with the powerful M-48 Personal Mixing System, the Multi-Channel Recording option from Cakewalk, and monitor and broadcast positions.
The intuitive interface applauded in the M-400 has been retained in the M-380 making it easy to learn and easy to use. Novice users will also appreciate the on-board Help
The M-380 V-Mixer integrates with PCs via its Remote Control Software for additional control or sending/receiving setup data allowing users to prepare channel setups and configurations before arriving at the venue.
Roland Systems Group’s breakthrough V-Mixing System along with the new M-380 V-Mixer is the answer to high-quality, cost-effective live digital audio control and distribution and represents a new level in configurability and convenience.
