“Thus far, the TMC-1 XMon has been awesome! It worked first time out of the box, and took very little time to get to grips with.Joe and I haven’t had the time to sit down and properly go through and customise it to our requirements. But the default is very functional and hasn’t left us wanting...I think I speak for both us that we are very happy with it! Thanks for taking the time to touch base with us”.All the best, Jason
My Setup:It’s a small/medium size facility focused primarily on feature length and documentary films, but also deals with standalone music projects. It’s as much for post work as it is for tracking so I needed a lot of flexibility. I had a Dangerous ST/SR setup and though it sounded great, there were some limitations. I looked at just about everything on the market and the TMC-1 always ended up at the top of the list. Once I realized that Wes was a U.S. distributor it was a pretty easy choice. And starting with the XMon config made the price point very reasonable. I deal primarily with stereo or 5.1 but the XMon can handle up to 7.1. I’ve been very pleased with the TMC-1 and can certainly recommend it. It does all that I need and more. It’s as much or more configurable than just about anything else available and still at a reasonable cost.
I used the TMC-1 Penta to control AVID MTRXs in my audio rooms. It is really a great device once set up. Colin is very helpful and hands on,I am very happy with my purchase. I highly recommend the setup I’m using. I actually downsized from a 24 fader D-Command to the AVID S3, Dock, and MTRX with Colin’s TMC-1. I only work in stereo at the moment but I have all the infrastructure available to go as many channels wide as I would need.
I just wanted to write you.We’ve been very impressed with the sound quality of the A-Mon, we find it far superior to the X-Mon’s we have in our other studios. The noise floor is excellent for post production work and we find out mixes have even more clarity as a result. Additional features such as the surround channel order and 7.1 muting capability make it an excellent replacement for the X-Mon.I hope that doesn’t sound too much like advertising, but it’s the truth.
“The TMC-1 for S6 gave a second life to our X-Mons by giving us instant access to their functionalities and a clear and permanent display of their state.”
“The TMC-1 puts the power on a large console monitor section in your left hand and Colin is always perfecting and updating his products!”
”CB Electronics have been very clever in producing one monitor controller that can control any of the following units. Avid X-Mon Monitor Controller, CB Electronics A-Mon Monitor Controller, Trinnov D-Mon Monitor Controller, NTP-DAD AX32 Monitor Controller, Avid MTRX Monitor Controller. The TMC-1 as a large console monitor system without the large console, which fits very well with the trend away form large consoles that we are seeing in our industry.”
“The man behind CB electronics is the charismatic Colin Broad. Colin who? For years, the film and broadcast community have relied on Colin Broad’s expertise to solve a range of problems in the area of machine and system control. In fact, you would have to search hard to find a UK film dubbing theatre without at least one of his products, known to all and sundry as ‘Broad Boxes’. They are also a common sight in dubbing theatres across the world. Because big film dubbing theatre requirements are so complex most of the previous products have tended to involve a degree of customisation to suit individual requirements”.
