CONSOLE HISTORY
THE PROFESSIONAL STANDARD
C
rest Audio consoles are famous
for their superior sonic performance, musical EQ and robust
summing amplifiers. Long a standard
for professional touring work, Crest
Audio consoles have been the choice
of premier mix engineers throughout
the world for over 20 years. Crest
Audio consoles have their roots with
THE MAGIC IS IN THE MIX
legendary designer Jim Gamble, who
was known as a no-compromise audio
designer, producing custom analog
modules for a variety of audio applications. Gamble’s microphone preamplifiers were famous for their pristine,
high-bandwidth performance while his
summing busses ensured that the high
levels of world-class touring acts had
40
plenty of headroom. In 1989, Crest
Audio became the exclusive manufacturer of Gamble consoles, with an
initial offering of the famed Gamble EX
Series. As the roots of this great console evolved, Crest Audio engineers
refined the time-tested circuits of the
Gamble design, cumulating with the
release of the Century Series, which
allowed Crest Audio to move from
a relatively small, boutique console
builder to the mainstream touring
regional sound markets. The Century
Series found its place in the growing
large-format touring market, becoming
a standard that still stands today. The
V-12, a powerful blend of the Crest
Audio sonic performance and the lat-
est manufacturing techniques, arrived
in 1998, giving touring companies a
console that stood up to the rigors of
road work with a rock-solid chassis
and improved electronics assemblies.
Subsequent releases expanded the
Crest Audio console line and included
the popular X-Series, which for the
first time brought Crest Audio console
41
performance to smaller, fixed installations. Today, with the rack-mounted
XRM monitor mixer and the new HP
Series combining the legacy of Crest
Audio performance with state-of-theart manufacturing and new features in
a cost-effective package, Crest Audio
is quickly becoming one of the most
popular console builders in the world.

THE MAGIC IS IN THE MIX
The New Generation
of VCA-Controlled Live
Performance Consoles
CV™ 20 CONSOLE
The new CV 20 is a true VCA console, providing flexible operation for a wide
variety of live-sound and fixed-installation applications. Configurable as a frontof-house or monitor console, the CV 20 includes a unique blend of powerful
features, including three primary (LCR) busses, eight subgroups and twelve
auxiliary busses. An expandable matrix and a generous array of additional
outputs make the CV 20 one of the most versatile consoles available. With largeformat features in a medium modular format—up to 56 mono and 8 stereo
inputs—the CV 20 brings Crest Audio sonic performance to new markets.
Intuitive control layout allows simple, immediate access to key functions while
configurable fader modes provide even more operational flexibility. Highquality dynamics processing is provided for all output groups, and like all Crest
Audio consoles, sonic performance is second to none. An integral scene/mute
controller coupled with full talkback, solo and cue functionality provide efficient
operations. Support for redundant power supplies and a versatile expansion
interface make the CV 20 a wise investment for any application.

Meter Bridge
An optional meter bridge is also provided for all CV™ frame sizes for analog monitoring (in VU) of all outputs. A total of 17 meters are provided on a meter bridge that is segmented into two sets. The first 12 meters
can meter both subgroups and matrix outputs or by all 12 auxes engaging the aux switch. The second set of
five meters are fixed to monitor the Left, Right, Mono/Center and Solo Left and Right busses.
Power Supplies
One internal, field-replaceable, power-factor corrected,
universal power supply comes standard with all CV
packages. A second PSU bay is provided on all CV units
for a second redundant internal power supply. A DC connector also comes stock with CV units for an external
PSU option.
Bus Link Module
Two CV 20 frames can be linked with the optional bus link module. By using DSUB
37 connectors, the busses from two consoles can be linked. Busses include: main
buses (L/R/M), subgroups, auxes.
MIDI Controllers
The scene controller allows easy editing for mute and VCA assignment automation
via a soft mute assignment, providing eight manual mute groups or scenes and
128 sequenced mute and VCA assignment scenes that can be controlled locally via
MIDI and RS485 devices. Programs from the scene controller can be saved to a jump drive via the USB interface
underneath the armrest. The USB interface can also connect a PC to program and control the scene controller via
Crest Audio’s NexSys® computer-controlled audio system hardware.
