Surround Pan Pot with Mono Input and 5.1 Output
The W748 is designed for V700 console frames and custom frames and does not fit into standard frames.
Pan Pot with
- Mono Input, and
- 5.1 Surround Output
Four control determine the distribution of the mono input signal to the 5.1 surround output.
The LCR Pan controls the 3 front channels L, C, and R and the surround channel SL and SR. The regulation of the front channels depends on the setting of the Divergence control, while the regulation of the surround channel is not different from a standard mono to stereo pan pot with 3 dB attenuation at center. With Divergence at 0 %, the front channels are faded from 'left only' when all to the left to 'center only' when at center and to 'right only', when all to the right. In this case, the LCR pan works like two combined standard pan pots for left to center and center to right. With the DIV control all to the right, the control law of the LCR pan changes to 'Left Only' when all to the left to 'Left, Center, and Right at 0 dB' at the center to 'Right only' when all to the right. The divergence control alters the width of the signal on the front channels. The setting between 0 and 100 % determines the levels of the left and right channels in all positions but all to the left or all to the right.
The Front-Surround-Pan determines the relation between the 3 front channel and the 2 surround channels. In the 100 % Front position, the surround channels are muted, while the 3 front channels are muted in the 100 % Surround position. The center attenuation is 3 dB for all channels.
The LFE control operates similar to an auxiliary send but with a linear control law. It works independent of the settings of the other controls.
The controls are rotary pots with 21 steps.
Inputs and outputs are electronically balanced. Additional outputs for V700 zero ohm bus rails are installed. These outputs allow direct mixing without additional gear using the bus amps and master amplifiers of the V700 system.
The W748 5.1 Pan Pot is a half high, half deep V700 module for console frames and custom-build frame that does not fit into V700 standard frames.
