Overview: A surround system consists of a stereo MTC-2 Master Controller with two additional Master Routers and an added four-channel MTC-6 Master Control unit.
Upgrading a stereo MTC-2 system to full surround is both easy and cost effective.
A further advantage of this modular design is that the front channels are also used for normal stereo, reducing the need for patching processors and effects units between stereo and surround sessions.
One of the problems with digital surround processing is maintaining sync between the channels. Normally only multi-channel processors can be used. Analogue processors do not introduce long delays and can be freely used on a channel-by-channel basis (in the same way as multi-track mixing).
The MTC-6 controls analogue inserts, levels and filters. Together with advanced, comprehensive monitoring, fast and accurate A/B comparisons can be made of all functions and signal processors.
It also offers true ‘audiophile’ sound quality with high specification, precision components used throughout.
