Roland M-200i iPad Controllable Console
Roland is introducing the Roland M-200i, designed to be controllable with an iPad.
The Roland M-200i V-Mixer joins the company's V-Mixing System line-up that includes solutions for live sound with consoles, digital snakes, integrated playback/record and personal mixing.
The iPad app is functional on all key aspects of the M-200i mixing and control parameters. It contains the preamp control, Pan, highpass filters, PEQ and GEQ control, and also includes the ability to store and recall scenes, adjust compressors and gates, sends on faders, effect editing and other controls.
Wireless connections are possible using a router plugged into the LAN port on the M-200i, or by using the Roland Wireless Connect adapter (WNA1100-RL) plugged into a USB port. Additionally, users can connect an iPad using a multi-pin iPad cable included with the M-200i that provides wired connectivity and also charges the iPad.
The physical console features a 32-channel architecture with 17 motorized faders, 8 Aux, 4 Matrix, 8 DCAs, 24 physical inputs and 14 outputs (expandable to 64x54). In addition to the physical inputs the M-200i can mix in audio sources from the USB port (flash key). If an iPad is unavailable, the console is controllable via the built in LCD screen along with buttons to navigate all the mixing parameters in the M-200i.
A "touch and turn" feature allows users to touch a particular parameter on the iPad and control it with a physical knob on the console.
The M-200i also includes a Roland Ethernet Audio Communication (REAC) port, which provides expansion options including multichannel playback/recording, additional remote physical inputs, and Roland's M-48 Personal Mixing System. The REAC port can expand the number of physical inputs by connecting one of the Digital Snakes heads such as the S-1608 a 16-input, 8-output box connected via a Cat-5e/6 cable. In addition, the REAC port can provides live multichannel recording using Cakewalk's Sonar Producer software.
Roland expects to ship the M-200i in January 2013.
