The TR8 and TR8+
The TR8 Bus Assign module
is a mono input line level module with a simple level control
and a panner.
The PAN control is a standard stereo pan circuit with a center
detent. The TR8 has the ability to have UNITY gain when the fader is full up, or you can change an internal jumper and it can be at UNITY when the fader is at 2 O'Clock, and +12 when full up.
The TR8 uses the proprietary all discrete TX-240 op-amp
and with the TR8+ bus master option, the all discrete TX-260 output
stage with the TX-280 transformer.
The TR8+ "BUS
MSTR" is an OPTIONAL bus master control, which is used for controlling
the levels of the busses, or can be assigned to any of the busses for a
simple Stereo master, Aux master or Surround bus master. It can
also serve as the replacement for the SM1
or SM2 bus master.
the rack to be filled with a full set of 16 modules, giving you 16 in X 8 out
channels, including the masters, ALL
IN ONE 3U RACK.
The rear panel feature connector provides for an external fader for the bus master option on the TR8+.
The TR8 can be used by it self as a inexpensive mono in, 8 out mixer for
DAW or LIVE use when a flexable module is required with multiple
outputs. It can serve as a monitor matrix, additional sends or
even a Mix Minus matrix for live.
This module, when used as a simple external summing module, will bring
the cost of a DAW external mixing system down considerably while
allowing panning between any pair of busses, which could be assigned to
the Stereo Bus and the Surround busses.
When used with the MX2 series, the addition of FOUR more TR8+ modules will
give you the masters for the FOUR sends on the MX2,
saving you the space of having FOUR SM1 master modules, with the added
feature of routing when tracking or more inputs when mixing.
The TR8 can also be used as an additional set of 8 sends, fed from the
direct output of the MX2, as the outputs of any of the bus switches can be
internally set to feed any of the 16 available busses in the VRACK,
allowing up to EIGHT additional sends from each MX2.
