TMC-1, A-Mon and XPand Manual Updates

I have spent the last two days updating manuals and some web pages with Daniel Gollety our previous French Distributer and my friend of more than 30 years. This was exhausting for both of us but we are happy with the results - especially after updating every screen shot of the TMC-1.

It was important for me to have both an outside proof reader and someone for whom English is not their first language, in English as in most languages there are many different ways of saying the same thing - some are easier to understand than others. It is well known that I do not write the best manuals!

The English versions are now on the web, the French versions will be on the web next week.

Thank You Daniel!

Dolby 'ATMOS' - using the new XPand from CB

Use with XMon or A-Mon the XPand will add up to 8 channels to the Main Input and output of the A-Mon or XMon. The XPand is now available to pre-order with a two week delivery.

The first XPand was installed in Amsterdam in a 7.1.4 studio one month ago with a customer who had previously purchased the TMC-1 for their XMon. According to Jelte who installed the XPand it was plug and play and worked first time.

Using Xpand with XMon to Implement 9.1.2 or 7.1.4

The Xpand surround control unit may be configured for different monitor formats.  Currently we can implement the three following selections, there may be more that we will need to implement in the future! In all modes the outputs are only enabled when both main Input and Main Output are selected,  the outputs follow the master gain control and have individual gain trims and mutes.
