M24 Control Surface Gets More Affordable
January 30, 2004
The Mixed Logic M24 control surface is now available at a new lower price (MSRP $2880.00), bringing the features and in-depth integration within the reach of even more musicians and engineers.
The Mixed Logic M24 Control Surface Features:
New M24 Firmware version 1.74 now available featuring new support for Ableton Live 3 and a new vertical control strip mode for Nuendo 2, Cubase SX 2, Logic 6, Pro Tools 5 and 6, plus many additional refinements and features.
New Control Surface Plug-in versions available for MOTU Digital Performer and Cakewalk Sonar with several new features including Static Fader mode.
Additional support now available for the Yamaha PM1D digital mixer.
The M24 features 24 channels each with a 100 mm motorized fader, pan control and switches for solo, mute, select and soft. The M24 supports extensive in-depth automation with bank swapping and channel offset to access all additional channels and features a complete transport section with Jog / Shuttle control. The M24 is the first control surface to feature complete dedicated equalizer, dynamics and auxiliary send control sections promoting control familiarity like a traditional analog console with all controls available at once for the selected channel. The M24 is the first control surface to support in-depth control of multiple plug-in effects at once, on a single channel or across multiple channels. For example, you could have several different equalizers plug-ins inserted across multiple channels and be able to jump from channel to channel and use the same equalizer controls to control similar functions in equalizer plug-ins from different manufacturers. You could also have several different compressor plug-ins inserted across multiple channels with all control for the compressors and the equalizers available at the same time. Faders can also be used for plug-in control and any control can be reassigned as needed, depending on the host software. The M24 features 3 midi ports, a USB port and internal power supplies.
Static Fader assignment is a new exclusive Mixed Logic feature that will allow the user to assign any fader on the M24 to a fixed channel and the fader will remain assigned to the channel during bank swap or channel offsets. For example, you could assign your on-screen master fader as a static fader to the M24 channel fader number 24 and when you bank swap the rest of the M24 faders from on-screen channels 1-23 to on-screen channels 24-46, the master fader would remain assigned to M24 channel fader 24 and always be active. You could also assign subgroups or key tracks to additional channel faders and they would not be affected by the bank swaps or channel offset swaps and would remain in place.
Vertical control strip mode is an additional mode to allow access to 24 channels of send controls for a selected send and at the same time retain access to all 24 channel faders. The new method is in addition to the original method providing access to all send controls for a selected channel and in addition to the send flip method assigning 24 channels of send controls to channel faders for a selected send. The new method is a convenience to engineers creating multiple monitor mixes during tracking.
The M24 can now be used as a control surface for the Yamaha PM1D digital mixing system. The M24 can be connected to the CS1D or directly to the DSP1D and used with or without a CS1D as the main control surface or as a secondary control surface. The M24 requires additional Mixed Logic software to interface with the PM1D system and the M24 is usually used in conjunction with the PM1D remote manager software running on a connected computer.
