Drawmer MC3.1 Controller

Hear the Music, Not the Equipment

Can you trust the audio that your current monitor controller is providing? Is it colouring the sound? For all Drawmer monitor controllers, it is imperative that what you record is exactly what you hear.

Building on the success of the MC2.1, the MC3.1 Monitor Controller is just as accurate and transparent while being of the same build quality. It can still faithfully reproduce what has been recorded without colouring the sound but comes with a much-expanded feature set. This includes more inputs, better control, extended channel routing and a desktop 'wedge' form factor.


Main Features

The new additions include a combined digital AES/SPDIF (24 bit/192kHz) input, giving a total of 5 individually switchable sources, including a front panel auxiliary input with level control. This allows for the easy connection of your mp3 player, smartphone, or tablet. Full cue mix facilities, with level control, provide separate source selection for main or cue outputs and the two headphone amplifiers, so artists can listen to a completely different mix to the engineer, for example. A dedicated cue mix output is also available.

A secondary preset volume control on the front provides a repeatable calibrated output level for the monitors, at the flick of a switch the engineer can hear the mix at the same predetermined volume, time after time, without having to meticulously adjust controls. The active circuit has been designed to faithfully produce the audio signal whilst removing many of the problems that a passive circuit will bring. There is one thing that should always be absolutely guaranteed, that you can rely on the accuracy of your monitor controller.

The MC3.1 incorporates three stereo balanced speaker outputs, plus a dedicated mono speaker/sub-woofer output each with individual left/right trims under the unit to provide complete control over level matching. Furthermore, each can be switched individually and simultaneously and in any order. You can listen to multiple speakers with the same sub-woofer or turn the sub-woofer off altogether.

Other improvements include additional mix checking capabilities, which now incorporate low, mid, and high solo switches. Hear how the lows bleed into the mid, or the stereo width of each, for example, and the ability to swap the left and right channels. The talkback has also been expanded to include an external mic in addition to the internal, and footswitch operation.
