In Depth

Monitor Control. Tried. Tested. Approved.

Tried, tested, and approved by many broadcast engineers around the world, you find the very same monitor control engine that you might know from our legacy surround monitor controllers.

The list is long, but let’s emphasize downmix, DSP-powered speaker calibration (using the internal microphone OR manual set), SPL readout, 4 input sources, speaker set selection (up to 4), solo, cut, swap, phase, mono, dim, mute and test tone generator.

The source compare feature lets you toggle between sources for easy comparison and lets you set individual delays for each of the sources.

On the output side, you can set up four speaker sets and easily switch between them or you can listen to your work with your favorite headphones using the headphones output.


Controls and meters on your monitor page

The SPL meter shows the measured sound pressure level in your room, and you can show SPL either as a bar graph or as a number – or both.

The downmix instrument outputs your surround or immersive mix in stereo and mono.
The downmixed signal can be monitored on speakers or phones or sent to any destination in your audio network.

Each speaker can be muted or soloed, and you can invert polarity.
The talkback feature lets you talk to speakers or any destination in your Dante network.

LF Boost lets you boost your LFE channels with 10 dB and Surr. Att. attenuates the surround channels with 3dB.

RTW Metering Inside

As you know, metering plays a significant role in any RTW device, and so it does in the TouchControl 5.

The PPM metering engine is taken from our high-end TouchMonitor meters, and you get a wealth of ways to tailor your own metering experience, including scales, color settings and more.

True Peak metering is of course part of the metering story, as well as VU and ‘British PPM’.
