OVERVIEW iDR-4 and iDR-8 are 16 x 16 matrix mixers with an extensive array of audio management tools designed to reduce the need for additional devices for an installation, or carried in the hire inventory. Allen & Heath preamps, 24bit converters and fixed DSP architecture ensure that concert-quality low-latency sound is delivered efficiently to where it is needed.
FEATURE SUMMARY iDR DSP system 16 processing channels (inputs and outputs) 8 analogue mic/line inputs on XLR with 48V phantom power 8 analogue line outputs on XLR iDR-8ST version also available, with XLRs replaced by Euroblock (Phoenix) connectors 2 line inputs on TRS jack 2 line outputs on TRS jack Digital audio expansion ports (8 channels in, 8 channels out) Hot Plug'n'Play PL Series remote controllers High Quality Audio Signal Path and DSP processing Headphone monitor with mouse and ripple-through capability MIDI In/Out/Thru connections
The iDR can send a user defined serial command when a preset is recalled. An example would be to trigger a video switcher when the iDR routes audio (audio switching).
A microphone connected to an i/p has its level reduced to 0 automatically until a switch is pressed.The switch opens the mic channel which is routed to the required zone(s).
Phantom power needs to be selected in the power up configuration in order to avoid pops and clicks being transmitted to the loudspeakers.
The PL Calculator is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that calculates the viability of a PL network.
It is possible to use a PL device on a local iDR unit to control level and preset recall on a remote iDR unit.
iDR System Manager is a software interface allowing for control and management of iDR units. System Manager enables the operator to Adjust, Set, Store and Recall settings in the iDR Unit(s). A complete system can be designed and realised allowing useful functions such as password protection, offline editing, multiple unit interconnection and function pairing and recalls.
Updates in software release include:
1. Mic-Pre settings not stored in current settings after preset recall Fixed.
2. PL Chain reset time set back to 1 second. 3. Fixed cannot create orphaned object-PL-11 bug. 4. Fixed Telnet command strings recognition issue. Download iDR-8 16x16 Matrix Mixer Instruction Manual
