Mixing Console 5MT - the Master Sections

Stereo Returns in R-MSTThe Master Sections can be used with all versions of the 5MT mixing console but the Series MR. Four stereo master sections are available.

Stereo Effect Returns

The master sections for stereo format, E2-MST, S-MST and AT-MST are fully compatible. These master sections include 5 to 8 stereo effect return input that increase the channel count of the mixing console without additional cost. In addition to the effect returns that are integrated in the 5 or 6 master modules, stereo return modules are availabe.


The master sections E2-MST, S-MST and AT-MST are module compatible. It is not only possible to exchange the entire master section in a mixing console but to mix the modules of these three master sections in one console. This offers the opportunity to configure the feature set of the master block individually, module for module. You can use an extensive mix master section in combination with modules of the E2-MST that include all necessary functions at an affordable price.

Master Sections for Stereo Format

4 versions for stereo format are available.
The E2-MST, the S-MST and the AT-MST can be used for Series C, Series S and Series D mixing consoles. They offer the same functions with different features sets and are module compatible.

The C-MST is well suited for small consoles. It combines the functions of the E2-MST in two modules. Stereo returns are not included, therefore, this master section uses 2 frame slots only. The C-MST is not compatible with any other version. It requires a corresponding frame wiring. It can be used with Series C, Series S and, with some limitations, with Series D consoles.

Master Sections for Surround Sound Systems

However, it is possible to mix surround sound input modules with stereo modules in a particular console. Stereo modules feed the front L and R channels only.
