The MSC1 monitor system controller includes features found in large mixing consoles to control monitoring functions from the mix position. he MSC1 includes the new third generation of JBL's RMC™ Room Mode Correction Technology that tunes the monitor system to overcome low-frequency room problems that can affect the quality of the mix. The MSC1 works with any speaker system, and can be added on to JBL''s new LSR2300 Series studio monitors.
The MSC1 provides the ability to monitor up to three 2-channel input sources, such as a mixing console, computer workstation and personal music player while controlling the volume of the monitor system and connected headphones. The MSC allows connection of two sets of speakers and a subwoofer. The primary “A” speaker outputs include user-defined monitor EQ and JBL RMC to tune the system to the room. The subwoofer output has its own level control, selectable crossover settings and RMC to perfectly blend a sub with the “A” speakers. The “B” speaker outputs allow connection of a second set of studio monitors. Included MSC1 Control Center Software allows access to user-adjustable settings, including speaker equalization, subwoofer crossover frequency, subwoofer polarity and level, and fine-resolution delay that can be applied to compensate for variations in speaker and subwoofer distance relative to the listening position.
The MSC1 ships with Windows XP and Vista-compatible software. Macintosh-compatible software will be available spring 2010.
The MSC1 is available through JBL Professional dealers at a manufacturer''s suggested retail price of $375 U.S.
