Martinsound MultiMAX EXR
Surround Monitor Controller with Remote

The MultiMAX EXR replaces your console's monitor section; providing surround sound mix bus monitoring as well as downmixing - encoder sends and decoder returns. MultiMAX EXR does all this and still lets you listen to your console so you can check PFL or external sources with just the push of a button. And like your console you have tape/bus monitoring - source selection - level - mute and dim control.

MultiMAX EXR folds down your multichannel mixes so you can hear how they will sound on other playback systems. Your HDTV broadcast will also be heard in stereo or mono by consumers. Your DVD mixes, too. You need to be sure your multichannel mix will still sound great on systems with fewer playback channels. MultiMAX EX even lets you format the stereo downmix, so you can generate stereo reference copies.

MultiMAX EXR has 16 speaker outputs with individual trims as well as a master level control. The main speaker system supports 8, 7.1, 6.1, 5.1 and LCRS formats. A split alternate speaker system allows independent front and surround selections. The alternate LCR front speaker system automatically downmixes 7.1 to 5.1. The alternate surround system makes it easy to select between diffuse and point-source surrounds. MultiMAX EX supports Dolby Digital-Surround EX™ by utilizing the unused LC/RC speaker outputs for main and alternate Center Surround (CS) speakers. Separate stereo nearfield and mono TV speaker systems make compatibility checking a snap. You can instantly select any of these speaker setups.

The EXR is not just a powerful speaker controller. Its features give you control of the entire monitoring process, and include:
- A built-in noise generator to help you calibrate your monitors.
- Master Mute and variable Dim controls.
- Individual monitor Source On or Solo control.
- Insertable LFE filter, allowing you to hear what the .1 of your 5.1 mix will really sound like on the final product.
- Digitally controlled attenuators rather than VCAs to ensure tracking accuracy and the best sonic quality.
- New features including an SPL Display Range mode, an extension of the monitor level range by 30 dB and the addition of a Wide Inputs Interlock mode.

MultiMAX handles these monitoring tasks and more:
- Monitor the Wide Inputs mixer, which can combine up to 5 different multichannel mixes, each up to 8 channels wide, for up to 40 inputs in total. The Wide Inputs mixer has its own output in discrete wide format (up to 8 channels), as well as downmixed LCRS, for connection to encode/decode processors.
- Monitor downward compatibility of the Wide Inputs mix by selecting Downmix or Mono. The user-formattable stereo downmix (Lo Ro) even has its own continuously available output so you can generate a reference copy for the client on the fly.
- Monitor another multichannel source. It may be formatted differently than the Wide Inputs, for 8, 7.1, 6.1, 5.1 or LCRS, to accommodate the return of an encode/decode processor.
- Monitor sources such as the stereo-compatible matrix-encoded mix (Lt Rt) from the processor or a client's stereo reference. Selecting Mono gives instant feedback of downward compatibility at the push of a button.
- Monitor your console's stereo or 4-channel monitor speaker outputs. You can interface MultiMAX EX to your console's logic system, allowing any PFL/AFL selection to automatically over-ride the current monitor source.
- Monitor a production track without it appearing in the assorted mixes within MultiMAX EX . It even has its own level control. Just what the scoring engineer ordered!

Discrete 8, 7.1, 6.1, 5.1, or LCRS
Dolby® Digital (AC-3)
