Two rack-mountable I/O units with different input and output capacities are available for use with the CL series consoles. The 5U
size Rio3224-D provides 32 ins, 16 outs, and four AES/EBU outputs, while the 3U size Rio1608-D has 16 ins and 8 outs. Both types
connect to the console via Dante network protocol for low-jitter, low-latency digital audio communication.
The optional CL3 and CL1 Meter Bridge fits
right above the console's display and provides
high-visibility level monitoring while allowing
the display to be used for other operations.

A Simple Daisy-chain System
A Flexible, Redundant Star Network
Internal port switches allow the CL series to be easily set up for daisy-chain
or star network congurations. In this example the Console at FOH position
is directly connected to the I/O rack at the side of the stage. The network
is self-congured. Of course the CL StageMix iPad app can be used even in
simple systems like this one, and Dante Virtual Soundcard can be used to
enable multitrack recording to a DAW such as Steinberg's Nuendo Live.
Star topologies can be congured with network switches. In this conguration,
redundant connections to each device on the network ensure that a
malfunction in one cable or network device will not disrupt the entire
system. The Gain Compensation feature allows multiple consoles to control
analog gain for a single I/O rack, for seamless integration of FOH and
monitor operation. Multiple computers can be used for live recording, too.
