This Jade is an In - Line console offering 88 inputs, it is a 48 module frame fitted with 40 In Line mic/line modules each with a monitor input, plus 4 stereo input for effects returns. Designed for use with an analogue multi-track but works just as well with a DAW or simultaneously with both.
Each module is equipped with 6 bands of EQ, 4 band parametric on the mic/line inputs and 2 shelving bands on the monitor inputs, it is also possible to move the 2 parametric mid bands from the mic/line path and place them into the monitor path. Unlike most other consoles the EQ can be used on the group outputs.
The Jade is equipped with the Soundtracs FDB EQ which offers up to + & - 20db boost and cut EQ at the extreme ends of the audio spectrum. Unlike most studio consoles it is possible to place the EQ into the group signal paths.
All modules are equipped with a Dynamics section providing a Compressor & Limiter which can be used with either a very fast Noise Gate or an expander or modulation - auto and triggered pan can also be achieved using 2 channels.
The Jade has 24 subgroups with 40 outputs ( Group & Direct ) plus 40 DAW / Multitrack monitor inputs, it is fitted with an integral bantam patchbay.
The Jade can be automated by adding a Soundtracs Tracmix unit, the vca's and switching are already in the console.
This console came to us from a UK University and has been serviced by Chris Roberts.
