Programmable control of the Cadac CDC MC Router is now provided by the dedicated NetCOMMS PC software, being debuted here at ISE and set to be available for free within the next two months. This allows the user to create, save and edit custom maps with its clear and simple GUI, including diagnostics data for all connected units when online.
NetCOMMS uses a simple grid based patch system, with a ‘tabbed’ system for each unit. Familiar to audio engineers, this allows the user to patch either individually; or in blocks or four, eight, 16 or 32; or even to patch all connections from unit to unit – all with a single click.
Marketing manager James Godbehear said: “Users should be thrilled with NetCOMMS because it makes our DCD MC Router incredibly intuitive and flexible.
Our consoles are renowned for high end audio quality with extremely low latency; if you’ve got headphones and are speaking on a mic, [with high latency] you can hear your voice in your ears as an echo after you’ve spoken.
“Our system cuts it down to a minimum, from the analogue input on stage though all the console processing into analogue output on stage, including all the analogue to digital and vice versa conversation as well.”
Cadac’s range of CDC digital mixers and multi-format I/O stageboxes provide production control in a MegaCOMMS network, with a choice of control configurations and channel counts.
