Announces Flying Faders Sales & Demonstrates
Automated Console Expander at NAB 2000
Alhambra, Cal.-- At NAB 2000 (Las Vegas Convention Center, April 10-13) Martinsound (Booth # R582) will be demonstrating the 'Just Mix' design philosophy of its legendary Flying Faders motorized fader mixing console automation system with the ACX automated console expander. Over 10 years since its introduction Flying Faders is still the most requested moving fader automation system worldwide, and sales remain strong.
Sales in the first quarter of 2000 have included installations in new consoles and retrofits in vintage systems. A large Flying Faders system is being installed in a new 80-channel API Legacy Plus console destined for the 'Big Boy' room at the Sound Kitchen, near Nashville, Tennessee. The Sound Kitchen currently offers Flying Faders automation in 4 of its 6 rooms. Jarvis Studios in New York City will shortly be taking delivery of a new 64-channel API Legacy equipped with Flying Faders. A Flying Faders system is being installed at the Dave Matthews Band's recording studio in Charlottesville, Virginia. In Burbank, California, a Flying Faders system has been installed at Benchmark Studios.
A number of studios are expanding existing systems. O'Henry Sound Studios in Burbank, California and Sear Sound in New York City both recently took delivery of additional hardware in order to extend their Flying Faders systems as part of a studio upgrade.
The functionality of Martinsound's ACX automated console expander seamlessly interfaces with a wide range of analog consoles and accommodates multichannel surround mixing, allowing existing Flying Faders users to handle larger, more diverse projects. For facilities with more than one Flying Faders system, an ACX, which can float between rooms, is an extremely cost effective solution for increasing overall capacity.
The ACX is available in 16-, 24- and 32-input versions and may be interfaced with the host console's multitrack, auxiliary, stereo and solo buses. Input channel features include a 4 band EQ with swept filters, 4 auxiliary sends, 8 buses plus stereo, panning, direct output, insert, and 2 line inputs per module, selectable separately or simultaneously. Total integration of the Flying Faders system allows mix data for the host console and ACX to be saved as a single computer file and permits the ACX to be included in global solo and group assignments.
