been fooling around with this listenator design. a wooden meter bridge will be luxurious. yes .
this listenator has 3 stereo inputs.
3 stereo outputs. (1st output has 70hz splitta)
2 stereo headphone output channels. c.room & artist.
VU meters . variable level controlled
1 mic input for talkback into artist phones.
operates dimmer across monitoring.
stereo/reverse/mono/solo left/solo right control switcher functions
in phase / phase diff .
..is switch to hear the difference between left and right channels.
its twists one channel out of phase and mixes the two channels mono -
hence the result is ‘only the audio that is different about left and right’
iow … left minus right.
raving . the onboard TALKBACK mic preamp injects producer speak into the dedicated artist headphone mixer. the engine ear producer can anytime directly monitor (into the crm phones ) exactly what the artist is hearing – so as to fine fine balance between talkback comm and music that the artist is play/ing with. when the talkback is GO! (either momentarily ‘talk’ or set latched ‘more talk’ ) – the control room monitors dim so as not to howlaround of course. dimmed to a user variable preset volume level.
the switched ‘go’ talkback signal can also feed an external power amp/speaker out in the studio. for a voice of god vibe.
i know u can buy controllers – plenty of choices .
but. what’s in there? . a bunch of 2$ ICs is what.
ekadek controllers contain NO CHIPS
.. only have ekadek’s own sweet neve ish transistor amplifiers.
the result is just clear clear fat sound.
no superfluous b.s electronics.
zebulon Bult wrote me about his minifenk - (same transistor amplifiers as the listenator) he was chucking a mackie big knob out. . Hi Greg. the fenk sounds great, I listened to music for a couple of hours last night. I instantly noticed the mid range was not smeary, snare drums sounded tighter & overall it sounded like there was more space & depth. …. In a nutshell, it sounds like I have removed a kind of hifi emulation from my signal path. I love this thing, it sounds fantastic, thank you very much. Zeb. please read all ekadek testimonies. http://ekadek.com/?cat=48
