The MMC 400 is fitted with conventional channel strips while the MMC 300 utilises a knob per function assignable channel, both feature touch sensitive controllers.
Surround mixing is central to MMCs design with a powerful monitoring section, intelligent panning to surround busses and simple routing of multiple surround sources and destinations including simultaneous mixing in multiple formats. MMC is fully Dolby compliant, Dolbys own San Francisco demonstration facility uses an MMC.
Encore automation is the de facto international standard for film mixing. Encore Plus accelerates the process, creating even more possibilities for efficient and creative mixing including automation reconform and off-line automation editing. Encore Plus integrates control of Pro Tools, Nuendo and Pyramix workstations through HUI and Oasis protocols, complementing the integrated multi-machine control system to provide a complete solution at the heart of the studio.
The legendary sound of AMS Neve comes into its own with high definition mixing. The powerful DSP supports high sample rates and up to 1000 paths from a single rack. The enormous processing flexibility allows a tremendous variety of configurations, future proofing the console against any future requirements.
The MMC 300 and MMC 400 will continue AMS reputation for providing highly efficient post production solutions with the quality, speed, power and longevity required in the competitive post production environment.
