LIVEMIX AD-24
LIVEMIX AD-24
24 channel analog input unit
$999.99

If you have an analog based system, the AD-24 Analog Input Rack Unit takes your analog signals and converts them to digital, for use in the Livemix system. It will most likely be installed near the analog source. If this is your mixer’s Direct Outs or Inserts, then the AD-24 will be near the mixer. If you use a snake with mic preamps, it might be near the snake.

The AD-24 receives your input signal via TRS or DB-25. The inputs pass through, so you can send your audio to the AD-24 via DB-25, and back out through the TRS if required.

The front panel interface indicates input signal levels by LED and allows selection of -10 dBV or +4 dBu line level, which are in stereo pairs.

FEATURES

  • Livemix personal monitor system with 24 channels of audio

    24 Balanced/Unbalanced Inputs

    With 24 inputs, the Livemix personal monitor system is the perfect balance of number of channels and simplicity of use. The AD-24 can receive analog audio via TRS or DB25. Processed audio is sent the the MIX-16 or MIX-32 over a single shielded CAT5 or CAT6 cable.

  • Livemix Personal Monitor System Import

    1/4`` & DB-25 Connectors

    Connect 24 analog inputs via TRS or DB25 for analog input into the Livemix personal monitor system. The dual format inputs provide a pass through connection so you can insert the AD-24 into your signal chain with no loss.

  • Livemix Personal Monitor System VU ICON

    Front Panel VU

    LEDs on the front panel of the AD-24 give a clear indication of when a signal is overloading making it easy to check and adjust gain structure.

  • Livemix Personal Monitor System SWITCH ICON

    Front panel +4dBu/-10dBV switches

    You can configure the inputs on the AD-24 to accept either a-10dbV signal (common in consumer level products) or a +4dBu signal (common in pro audio devices). Front panel switches allow easy switching between line levels for input pairs.

  • Livemix Personal Monitor System CONVERSION ICON

    High Quality Audio Conversion

    With high quality audio conversion, the AD-24 ensures that the audio you are mixing is of the best possible quality. Clean and “tight” audio signals make it much easier to mix than audio that is not defined and smears across frequencies.

  • Livemix Personal Monitor System POWER ICON

    External Power Supply

    An external power supply ensures clean audio paths and minimal power interference.

Yes you can, and it it incredible simple. Select the channel within the group that you wish to adjust. A white border will outline the channel to indicate it is selected. LONG PRESS the ADJUST knob to temporarily remove the channel from the group. The white outline of the selected channel will flash while the channel is temporarily out of the goup.  Use the ADJUST knob to adjust the volume of the channel and press the ADJUST knob to return the channel to the group.

You can connect two CS-SOLO units to a single port on the MIX-16 or MIX-32. The first mixer is the blue “A MIX” while the second unit will be the red “B MIX”. Power and audio is supplied to the second CS-SOLO over a network cable connected to the CS-SOLO THRU port. The CS-DUO must be connected directly to the MIX-16 or MIX-32.

Categories: CSDUO, CSSOLO, Livemix

The CS-DUO has the abiblity to link both the A and B Mixes. Select the A mix, PRESS and HOLD both Master Volume knobs at the same time. Confirm that you want to group the controls. At this point both sets of control knobs will control the mix. Repeat these steps to unlink the mixes.

The Auxiliary input is designed for an amplified signal such as what is output from a smartphone headphone output. In order to use a microphone with the Aux input, it would need to be used with a microphone preamplifier before the signal gets to the Livemix Aux in.

But as luck would have it, we make just such a device. The LM-MICPRE is a mic preamp that allows you to use a standard dynamic mic as the intercom mic. Check it out here.

Categories: CSDUO, CSSOLO, Livemix

Livemix provides 5 multi-channel groups and the ability to group stereo pairs. If you need to send a subgroup to the Livemix system outside of those groups, you will need to subgroup them on the console and then publish that group to the Dante network.

Categories: CSDUO, CSSOLO, Livemix

While Livemix Data is transmitted over standard network cables, it is not in a format that a network can read. DO NOT use splitters, couplers, or hubs between any CS-SOLO or CS-DUO and the MIX-16/MIX-32. DO NOT connect a CS-SOLO or CS-DUO into an ethernet network. This could cause damage to the personal mixer and will void the warranty.

A switch is not required for a Dante Network. You can connect the LM-DANTE card directly to the Dante output of the console. It is recommended that if you use a switch, you adhere to the Audinate requirements for a switch.

 

Shielded cable is required for connecting both the AD-24 and the DA-816 to the MIX-16 or MIX-32. Shielded cable is not required for connecting a CS-SOLO or CS-DUO to the MIX-16/32 or connecting the LM-DANTE card to the Dante network. However, shielded is recommended.

Categories: DANTEEXP, Livemix, MIX16, MIX32

Dante Controller is not needed for setting up Livemix on the Dante Network. However, you will need to use Dante Controller to set the Master Clock for the Dante Network. See the LM-DANTE User Guide pg. 8 for assigning Dante Channels.

Categories: CSDUO, CSSOLO, Livemix

At this time any single Livemix channel is a mono channel.  However, the flexibility and ease of group assinging makes it easy to group stereo sources. This means you get true stereo panning, and since Livemix has 24 channels, you can have 4 stereo groups and still have another 16 channels for mixing.

Category: Livemix

Digital Audio Labs has been in the audio industry for over 30 years, starting with high end sound cards in the 80’s and a full DAW system in the mid 90’s. Everyone on the Livemix design team has had extensive experience in studios, on worship teams or Front of House and Livemix is a result of that experience combined with our expertise in DSP, mixing, and amplification.

Categories: DANTEEXP, Livemix

With the LM-DANTE-EXP2 option card, Livemix supports Dante network sample rates up to 96K.

AES67 is an interoperability protocol that promises the ability to share digital audio from non-compatible networks. As the AES67 standard is not fully implemented at this time, AES67 is not yet supported.

Categories: AD24, Livemix

The AD-24 can take your input signal via TRS or DB-25. The inputs are pass-through, so you can send your audio to the AD- 24 via DB-25, and back out through the TRS if required.

Categories: Livemix, MIX16

The MIX-16 supports 16 personal mixes but has up to 24 channels.

Categories: Livemix, MIX32

The MIX-32 supports 32 personal mixes and up to 24 channels.

Livemix works with either analog or digital (Dante) input. With the AD-24 analog input unit you can connect TRS or DB25 connectors from your console or recording interface. For a Digital connection with Dante, plug directly into a switch. For other digital formats (MADI), you may need a format converter.

Categories: CSDUO, CSSOLO, Livemix

Livemix has 5 groups, one of which is controlled with the Me Knob. Using this feature, you can group two channels (Stereo Keys, Guitar, Tracks) but because it only groups the volume, you can still have the ability to use the full stereo field.

You will need to select Sync to External if the word clock on our console is not set to slave or if you are using any other clock source. i.e Madi, AES50 etc.

Categories: DANTEEXP, Livemix, MIX16, MIX32

We recommend to make the Master clock the console or Dante card in the console. NOTE: There are two ways this can be done. 1) Set the console’s internal clock as Master, then using Dante Controller, set the console’s Dante card as Master clock (for the Dante Network) and also check box “Sync to External”. This will allow the card to stay synched to the console’s master clock. 2) Set the console’s internal clock to be slave of the console’s Dante card. Using Dante controller, set the console’s Dante card as Master clock.

Livemix has a passcode feature for protecting certain settings. The passcode protects Global Effects (channel EQ, Dynamics and HPF) and/or Global Configuration (all Global features including Global Templates).

Categories: CSDUO, CSSOLO, Livemix

To remove the passcode, PRESS the ME Knob for three seconds on any screen that prompts you to enter the passcode. After three seconds, release the ME Knob and PRESS and hold it for three seconds more. The passcode removal screen will appear. SELECT Yes to reboot the system, removing passcode protection.

With feedback from our end users and dealers, we are continually making Livemix better with firmware updates. These USB ports are used for updating the firmware.

Categories: Livemix, MIX16, MIX32

We recommend placing the MIX-16 or MIX-32 near the stage. This will maximize the cable lengths for each personal mixer.

Categories: CSDUO, CSSOLO, Livemix

Because Livemix was designed to be volunteer friendly and easy to use, setting up effects for each channel can be done globally from one personal mixer. Setting up EQ and compression on 24 channels for every person on stage would be a nightmare (with the MIX-32 that would be 768 channels). With global effects, each channel can be optimized to fit in a mix perfectly so that each performer just needs to adjust volume and pan.

Categories: CSDUO, CSSOLO, Livemix

Livemix auto saves settings and mixes to a temparary location every 2 minutes. If you make an adjustment and power down without saving before it has a chance to auto save, you will lose your changes. It is recommended to always save a mix or global template when changes are made.

48kHz has long been the standard for network audio, offering the combination of the most compatibility, fidelity and throughput.

Categories: CSDUO, CSSOLO, Livemix

Through many years of working with worship teams, volunteers, and live bands, we have found that most musicians are not used to mixing multiple channels. We designed Livemix with this in mind. Additionally, it is much easier to offer help to another performer (or use MirrorMix®) when the channels are in the same locations from personal mixer to personal mixer.

Category: Livemix

The Livemix CS-DUO is two personal mixers in one. With two mixers per unit, you can reduce stage clutter and your overall per node cost without sacrificing quality or functionality.
