APB-DynaSonics is using InfoComm to mark the U.S. introduction of its new ProDesk-4 small-format console (booth C4769). Available in 16, 24, 32, 40 and 48 mono mic/line input channels, ProDesk-4 includes four stereo line only input channels, each selectable from two different input sources and controlled from 100mm faders with stereo EQ and access to all auxiliary buses.
Company officials said the ProDesk-4 input channels are similar to those used on ProRack mixers, while the cosmetics are identical to Spectra consoles. All mono input channels also include internally illuminated mute and PFL switches, six-segment channel metering, 48-volt phantom power switch with LED, mic/line, pad and polarity reverse switches.
At the heart of ProDesk-4 is APB's wide-bandwidth circuitry, most noticeable in the microphone preamps, EQ, and summing amplifier and output sonic performance. Six auxiliary sends are switchable pre/post fader in pairs and pre/post EQ as a group and include one pair of auxiliary sends that are switchable between mono and stereo operation
Outputs include four analog subgroups, four matrix outputs, left/right, center, and mono (subwoofer). All include XLR balanced output connectors; TRS pre fader insert points, and TRS-balanced bus inputs.
The console's other ProDesk features include a digital USB stereo input and record output; remote muting of all primary outputs using a single Euro connector; and the use of mother and daughter board construction for easy service. A plug-in power supply helps ensure reliability, while an optional redundant power supply can be added to all but the 16 mono input chassis systems.
