Functional
Description

100 mm faders

2 main routing buttons

Channel selection button for advanced settings

OLED display: shows channel name and status, balance/panorama

CUE button

Indicator of active processes

Channel activation button with channel on-air indicator light

Operability at the service of the user

Each channel on the surface provide: 2 direct access keys to the main routing and a channel selection key to access the advanced configuration and controls: gain, dynamics, equalisation, balance and sends to auxiliary outputs and n-1 buses.

The channel also has a display that shows the name of the input, channel status and balance/panoramics. It is followed by the CUE or pre-listening button, a led indicator that indicates either deviation from the Off-set gain, out of balance or non centred panoramics or if any process has been applied to this signal. The Channel “ON” key will indicate with a red LED if the channel is active and if the 100 mm sliding fader is open.

Precision LED Vumeters

Programmable keys

Multifunction display

Display-associated keys and encoders

Control, studio and talkback monitoring

4 PTT for direct intercom

This section provides two precision VU meters and 20 programmable keys. These high-precision stereo digital VU-meters can be assigned to the master outputs or, via the CUE keys, to any selected signal. The programmable Keys are available for a myriad of functions and controls, including audio engine cross-points, equipment control, talk-back and advanced signalling.

In the central part of the control module is located a multi-function display with associate keys and rotary encoders and are used for advanced configuration and functions. Each fader channel has a “Select” button that is linked to this area and allows for the adjustment of complex signal parameters and processing, internal routing, etc. Such configurations and adjustments can also be done with the optional “Capitol Screen” on a touch screen.

CAPITOL IP provide for independent monitoring in the technical area and studio. The lower part of this module contains the monitoring controls for the Control Room and Studio as well as the basic talk-back keys.

High value optional applications

Capitol Screen: operational support tool

Control and visualisation software. Excellent for simple and convenient control of all console parameters. Displays important information for the user such as: VU meters, local time/calendar, “ON AIR” indicators and active phones, etc… It is possible to configure the parameters of equalisation functions, high pass filters, low pass filters, compressors/limiters, noise gates, etc…

Virtual Capitol: tool for remote control

To operate the console remotely, or in parallel with its control, simply use the “Virtual Capitol” app. This App shows an exact representation of the control surface. It includes all the physical controls available on the real console surface, as well as most of the advanced functions: control faders and audio channels, modify equalisations, gains, balance/panorama, save or load memories, activate special functions from programmable keys and even manage incoming phone calls.
