The next generation Monitor & Talkback Controller – studio standard redefined.
This classic has been updated with new features adapting it to the demands of modern music production environments.
Advanced source and speaker selection, multiple monitoring modes, an integrated premium talkback system, headphone amplifiers with Phonitor Matrix,
an additional input for a dedicated artist mix, and an internal audio operating
voltage of +/-18 volts make the MTC Mk2 once again the
professional studio standard among monitor controllers.
The 45 mm big, massive, milled from aluminum knob for the analog volume control, offers the perfect control range to adjust the monitoring volume intuitively and precisely.
Speakers & Subwoofer
The MTC Mk2 provides three pairs of outputs for stereo speakers and a mono output for a subwoofer.
The respective stereo pairs are selected with high-quality analog switches. Each pair has its individual switch. Thus, multiple selection is also possible. The SUB switch can be used to switch an additional subwoofer on and off. The SUB can be combined with any speaker pair. The subwoofer output sends a mono summed signal with full frequency range. Alternatively, a mono monitor speaker can be connected to the SUB output.
MTC Mk2 allows three different monitoring modes.
As a standard, the mix can be monitored in “stereo”. Mono compatibility can be checked in “mono”.
The phase of the signal can be reversed via the phase inversion switch Ø.
A special feature is the third mode –
the channel swap function: LR SWAP
Dim and Mute
Besides the DIM switch for a quick attenuation of the monitoring volume by 10 dB, the MTC Mk2 also offers the option of completely switching off all speaker outputs with the SP MUTE switch. This is useful, for example, when monitoring via a pair of speakers with a subwoofer. So only one switch has to be pressed to turn off this combination.
The headphone output stage
The MTC Mk2 delivers full headphone sound – twice!
The output stage of the headphone amplifiers is designed as a push-pull amplifier in Class AB mode. The bipolar transistors share the amplification of the positive and negative half-waves, which produces a higher gain and a higher output voltage than in Class A operation, where only one transistor amplifies both half-waves.
The new MTC Mk2 now operates with an internal operating voltage of +/-18 volts for the analog audio sections.
The MTC Mk2 can now handle levels up to +22.5 dB and offers about 1.5 dB more headroom than conventional pro audio devices with an internal operating voltage of +/-15 volts.
