In addition to the 56 primary input channels, PR02 features 8 aux returns, all of which feature 4-band parametric EQ and insert points. These 8 aux returns can be used as returns for the PR02's internal FX processors, or as additional mic channels, if enough mic inputs are available on the network I/O hardware.
A total of 64 input channels have routing to 27 mix buses. These buses comprise 16 user-configurable aux buses, which can be mixes, subgroups or mix minus groups, and the 8 matrix buses. The Matrix buses source from inputs, as well as groups, and so can be used as additional auxes (monitor mix and FX sends). All buses can be linked as stereo pairs (except the MONO bus).
All audio paths can be routed to multiple destinations and the console format can be reconfigured live on a scene-by-scene basis.
The Console is a typical robust MIDAS steel frame, which employs engineering principles similar to those employed on established products such as PRO6 and XL8. The frame is fitted with two removable power supplies, only one of which is required for full operation. The power supplies are auto-voltage sensing, auto-switchover, fitted with locking AC connectors, and are hot-swappable.
The standard DL251 remote stage-box included with each PR02 system has 48 MIDAS mic/line inputs, 16 analogue XLR outputs and features dual power supplies as standard. The DL251 can be located up to 100 metres (330 feet) cable distance from the console. You can choose from a range of optional I/O including the DL431 mic splitter so you can tailor the hardware to your chosen application.
The fixed-format, integrated audio I/O on the rear of the surface features the following connections:
