Coleman Audio and KMR Audio have introduced the RED 48; a 48-channel summing mixer and monitor controller designed to give all the functionality and sound of mixing on a console in a 2U format.
The Coleman Audio RED 48 comprises three different sections – a control room monitor, a talkback function, and a mix buss.
The control room section is based on the Coleman Audio TB4 MkII monitor controller, and features three balanced stereo inputs and the mixbuss, which can all be selected as the source. The control room and alternative monitors have dedicated levels with a passive stepped attenuator.
The talkback section includes a talkback microphone with a dedicated level control; a slate output allowing you to designate tracks and dedicated remote switches. The cue signal can be assigned as a cue mix control or control room signal and the headphones output can take the control room signal or the cue. It also has its own level control and can receive the talkback signal in cue feed mode.
A remote is also included with penny and giles stereo master fader and three switches to control talkback, slate, and dim.
Inspired by KMR Audio Germany's Andrew Myburgh, Coleman Audio developed the RED 48 from his initial spec and has given it the RED moniker and its colour as homage to KMR Audio.
The Coleman Audio RED48 is available to purchase in the UK and Germany from KMR Audio.
