Frankfurt, Germany (April 11, 2018)—Crest Audio has introduced its new XD-16 and XD-28 2U rackmount digital mixers, offering optional Dante networking as well as real-time remote control and monitoring from any Android, Windows or iOS device.
An integrated WiFi module allows real-time control and monitoring of mixer processing functions, either by acting as a WiFi router for direct connection of up to four external devices for remote control, or by connecting to an external WiFi network, extending the mixer’s range for applications where the remote control devices are a long way from the mixer.
An optional 4×4 Dante network module allows up to eight channels (4-in/4-out) of audio streaming over a Dante network, also extends the physical inputs of the XD-16/XD-28 by four AUX channels, and also adds four outputs (MON 1-2 and AUX 1-2). Control is provided via the Dante Controller application.
The XD Series mixers may also be equipped with an optional network module to directly link a “Slave” mixer to the master unit via a 100Mbps Ethernet connection. Linking a Slave to a Master allows the user to access the Slave’s inputs thereby expanding the mixer by a further 16 or 28 channels. Master and Slave units process their own input channels, and then the Slave sends the streams to the Master, which collects and mixes the signals before output. Remote control is via the Master unit, which in turn controls the Slave via the network.
Finally, any USB flash media or HDD can be connected to XD Series digital mixers for concurrent recording and playback of dual audio tracks which are stored via USB media in a lossless 16-bit or 24-bit WAV format.
