The Renegade Labs M16 Digital Edit Suite Audio Mixer is targeted at video editing facilities.

Renegade Labs M16Using the company’s 328|MXE chassis, the M16 accepts up to 32 input channels of analogue audio at line and mic-level, AES-format and SD/HD SDI digital, routing to eight analogue/digital outputs. Additional outputs can be added in either analogue, AES digital or SD/HD SDI-embedded formats.

‘By pairing a sophisticated 16-fader panel with the stand-alone 328|MXE chassis, the M16 takes edit-suite audio mixing to a new level,’ says Keith Knudsen, Renegade Labs co-founder and VP of Sales.

The unit was developed by expanding the firm’s eight-channel Blue|328 and Gray|328 digital audio mixers, which use smaller control surfaces.

Designed for edit-system control in linear edit suites, the M16 communicates to any edit controller with ESAM II protocol via an RS422 serial port. Video-centric operation is enhanced by separate rows of buttons for Program or Preset assignment of audio to the faders, along with an edit system-controlled preview switcher. An Auto To/From feature allows easy access to all 32 inputs under edit control, eliminating the need to switch banks or recall registers during edits to access more inputs.

Precision optical encoders along with soft-buttons provide flexible control of mixer operations. A 240x64 status LCD shows mixer status information and handles system setup. An optional 640x240 color LCD provides detailed metering in PPM, VU, K-Meter and Surround Sound, with peak and phase indication. A USB port handles register storage and software upgrades. The control panel can be either rack-mounted (8U) or used in tabletop mode.

Features include:

• Full eight-channel monitoring, including configurable matrix with Surround Sound modes and stereo Downmix
• Built-in Preview Switcher for monitoring of Record machine without tying up faders.
• 16-button keypad matrix for control of input assignments, output routing, monitor configurations and memory registers.
• 16 Video Frames of Audio Delay for A/V sync problems.
• Full 16-channel three-band parametric EQ and integral dynamics processor.
• 100mm faders along with unity LEDs for smooth and precise level adjustments.
• Dedicated pan pots for easy output panning.
• Program and Preset busses provide video centric operations
