The Digitool MX16
, which is available now, along with the Digitool MX32
and Digitool Live
provide stand-alone or external GUI-based audio control in 8×8 or 16×16 I/O formats. The new Digitool models share a common processing platform with the Peavey MediaMatrix NION processor.
The Digitool MX16 features eight inputs and eight outputs; the Digitool MX32 features 16 inputs and 16 outputs; and the Digitool Live features eight balanced XLR inputs and outputs for live-sound FOH applications. The processors feature a color LCD display on the front panel, front-panel navigation, individual input and output mutes, and five-segment LED arrays for input and output signal monitoring. The system may also be configured and controlled via a dedicated NWare-based GUI running on an external PC.
All three Digitool models feature a front-panel USB port to interface with a PC for software updates. The rear panel includes an Ethernet port for programming or connecting to a network; eight control voltage ports; and two RS-485 ports, allowing for a variety of external control. All three models also include a globally compatible 100–240V power supply.
The Digitool MX16 is shipping now, while the Digitool MX32 and Digitool Live will be available later in 2012 from authorized Architectural Acoustics dealers.
