The system is designed to
solve monitoring problems associated with DAW-based recording and mixing studios
that do not employ traditional mixing consoles.
The Monitor SR is a companion expansion module that provides
full 5.1 surround monitoring capabilities. Studios working in stereo can start
with the ST and later expand to surround by adding the Monitor SR unit with no
equipment redundancy or obsolescence.
Fox is using its new units for 5.1 surround monitoring in
its four Autodesk Smoke HD video post production bays.
"When we designed the Monitor ST/SR, this was one of
the key applications we had in mind - film and HD post production utilizing 5.1
surround sound,” explains Dangerous Music’s founder/co-owners Bob Muller.
Pricing for the Monitor ST is $2,199. The Monitor SR
expander is $1,499.
