The Dangerous Music LIAISON Signal Routing Matrix is a 2U rack mountable routing matrix designed by mastering engineers to connect up to six pieces of outboard equipment directly to your system. Additional pieces of equipment can be added to the signal path by daisy chaining, utilizing a patch bay, or integrating with a Dangerous Master unit.
The unit features balanced left and right XLR input and output pairs for six routing insert sends/returns and two busses, A and B. A 25-pin D-sub connector provides interfacing to two stereo pairs of external outputs for monitoring the Busses. In standalone mode you can monitor Buss A input for a preprocessing mix and Buss B output as a post processing mix. A switchable 120/240VAC outlet provides power to the unit.
The device's control interface enables you to instantaneously insert your outboard gear into the signal chain on either Buss A or Buss B with the push of a button. Deselecting the button bypasses the external gear on that insert from the signal chain. You can reverse the order of outboard equipment on each pair of sends by pressing the flip 1-2, flip 3-4, or flip 5-6 insert buttons. All of your configurations can be stored, recalled, and cleared as presets by utilizing the four preset buttons and clear and store buttons on the front panel of the device.
The unit includes a parallel processing buss on inserts 2, 4, and 6. Pressing any of the three parallel processing loop buttons blends the original unprocessed signal with the processed insert signal. A continuously variable potentiometer knob allows you to control the blend of unprocessed and parallel processing. A polarity button allows you to flip the signal of the parallel processing buss 180° out of phase. The device is hand-built in the USA to mastering standards.
