New Music Gear Monday: Blue Sky AMC Monitor Controller
The Blue Sky Audio Management Controller (or AMC) consists of a rack mounted I/O box with a separate remote control, and is a true 7.1 controller, providing the ability to solo or mute each of the individual speakers and set a reference level if you're mixing for film or television. As with most controllers, there's also a big rotary pot for master level control, as well as a Dim and master Mute button.
The unit also provides DSP room analyzation and correction, with each channel featuring a 1/3rd octave EQ, 8 bands of parametric EQ and filters and variable delay for time alignment. This can be activated via its SRO or Speaker-Room Optimization mode. The system also provides up to 8 presets, which can be easily accessed via the preset buttons on the controller's front panel.
The I/O box features 8 channels of balanced analog input and output as well as 8 channels of AES/EBU digital inputs. All connections are via D-sub connectors. The A/D convertors of the system can operate up to 96kHz/24 bit.
The Blue Sky AMC retails for $2995. You can find more information on the Blue Sky website.
