Each Digitool model features a full-color display screen, front navigation and editing controls, front panel input and output mute buttons and LED meters to simply configuration. They can also be configured using a Windows application via USB or Ethernet. The Digitool MX 16 is an 8 input, 8 output configuration designed primarily for small to medium fixed installation projects. This product is strategically placed to be the go to product for those jobs that do not require the complexity of MediaMatrix products, nor the need for transferring audio over a network.
There is one stereo AES input, and 8 CV "control voltage" inputs that can be programmed as level and mute controls, as well as an RS-485 input for external control of level, mute and preset recall. The front-panel USB port can be used for quick for setup in the field, and there's also a rear-panel Ethernet port for configuration in permanent installations. The firmware can be field updated, and the unit is 100V to 240VAC 50/60 Hz compatible.
Processing functions include: full matrix routing with mute and level control at each cross-point; input and output filters including PEQ, hi-shelf, lo-shelf, hi-pass, all-pass and horn-EQ; crossover filters to fourth order, including Butterworth, Bessel and Linkwitz-riley alignments; delay of up to 2.5 seconds on each input and output with sample period resolution; gate and compressor on every input; compressor/limiter on every output; digitally controlled analog input and output level controls for maximum dynamic range; 4 audio-triggered, priority mute buses; automix capability; signal generator; copy/paste of input and output settings; and preset storage and recall (8 internal preset locations).
