01-29-2015 11:00 AM

We had the world exclusive announcement ahead of NAMM when in part 3 of our Trinnov video series Paul Mortimer told us about this new product.
Then during the show we were able to give you much more detail on the new D-Mon series units.
Now James who was in the room and experienced the Trinnov system first hand down at Mike Aiton’s studio with Neil Hester met up with Chris Moyer from Trinnov to have a first look at the Trinnov D Mon Monitor Controller.
Trinnov have partnered with Avid as part of Avid’s 3rd party program and produced a replacement for the Avid X-Mon analog processor that has been used alongside their control surfaces to achieve their monitoring functions. The Trinnov D-Mon is backwards compatible so it can easily replace an X-Mon irrespective of which control surface solution you have.
The D-Mon comes in two formats, one for smaller stereo studios and one for surround facilities. They offer Audio Routing Matrix, User Assignable Functions (Main, Alternate, Cues, Talk-Back, Listen-Back, Headphones, etc.), an 18x16 Internal Mixer, Digital & Analog Inserts, and fully assignable Intercom control.
In addition you also get the Trinnov Optimizer software for acoustic tuning of multiple stereo up to 7.1 speaker sets, with comprehensive functions and processing for advanced monitoring.
The combination of the analog and digital I/O with all the additional I/O as well as the Trinnov Optimizer software makes this a very powerful solution.
