The AWX is inspired by a world-class mixing console that brought the large-format studio to the small home studio. It is a split design with a ton of routing capabilities and on-board processors.
Values are determined by the FLIP button. Default is MIC. Engaged is a line level input signal.
- The MIC option uses a mic-pre to amplify the signal from 0-60db.
- The LINE option boosts or reduces from -20db to +40db
The AWX equalizer has 4 bands:
- HF – Hi Filter
- HMF – Hi Mid Filter
- LMF – Low Mid Filter
- LF – Low Filter
The HF & LF bands can boost/reduce with sweeping frequencies.
The HMF & LMF bands can do the same but, with the added abilities of adjusting the Q width of the band. A wide Q is a more spread out attenuation while a narrow Q is more focused on the specific frequency. Allowing for more surgical crafting with the EQ.
Aux & Cue Sends
The AWX has 4 mono aux sends and 2 dedicated stereo cue sends
Aux 1 & 3 share a gain knob. 2 & 4 share a gain knob. Cues A & B also share a knob for gain and knob for panning.
The sends can be enabled with the toggle switches beside the knobs.
Channel Fader Section
The AWX features 2 stereo busses!
- Solo / Mute
- 2 Stereo Busses (Rec & Mix)
There are additional routing options on the top of the channel:
- 8 bus outputs
- Pre – Enables pre fader listen for bus outputs
- Pan – Makes it that the stereo information from the channel fader passes the Left signal to the ODD busses and the Right signal to the EVEN busses. *Useful for keeping pan information when grouping drums!*
- D1 / D2 – Routes the input of the channel to the dynamics modules found in the master section. *A dynamic module can only be assigned to one channel at a time!*
Assignable to either of the Mix or Rec stereo busses. Useful for “glueing” the final mix.
Dynamic Modules 1 & 2
Each module can only be assigned to a single channel at a time.
Each of the Bus Outputs and Aux/Cue sends has their own dedicated master gain knobs to adjust their grouped signals.
There are 4 stereo returns that receive a signal for Left & Right. Each stereo return has a set of functions:
- Cue A & B Bus
- Rec & Mix Bus
- Studio Level – Sends to Cue bus
- Balance – Pan
- Level – Level sent to Rec & Mix bus
Select which stereo mix is played to the speaker output.
- Cue A
- Cue B
The Monitor Volume controls the level to the speaker output.
Additional controls for each of the stereo Rec & Mix busses. Using the combinations of grey buttons to assign them.
- Stereo Compressor
- + 4 db
Each function can only be used on a single bus. Notice the fader is listed. The master fader is not assigned to either mix by default as it needs to be assigned!
