...the idea
Euphonix was founded in 1988 to
bring to market an innovative
successor to the traditional mixing
console. Euphonix mixing systems
apply computer power and software
flexibility to enhance, automate, and
streamline the mixing process that
has traditionally suffered from the
limitations of manual control.
Euphonix digital control consoles
represent a breakthrough in the level
of mixing and processing functions
that are stored, recalled, and
automated. The revolutionary system
architecture provides higher audio
performance at lower cost than
traditional mechanically operated
consoles or expensive and premature
"all digital" offerings. Digital control
provides a significant increase in
operational efficiency and flexibility,
while maintaining an easy and
familiar control surface. All controls
on the digital control surface may be
stored and recalled in less than 1/30th
of a second. The purest audio quality
is achieved through high-end analog
audio circuitry placed under precision
digital control. Analog audio is
digitally manipulated and passed
between inputs, outputs, inserts and
monitors without the sonic and
financial expense of digital
converters. High reliability analog
signal processing allows studios to
preserve their investments in cabling,
interfaces, tape machines, outboard
gear, and maintenance practices.

The Euphonix digital control mixing
system is based around a modular and
scalable architecture. Systems may be
specified to exactly match a facility’s
needs and financial resources today,
yet still allow for future upgrades. A
Euphonix purchase is an investment
that is forward compatible. As Dolby
Digital surround sound, DVD disks,
DTS multi-channel CDs and other
technological developments begin to
change the demands placed on music
recording and mixing, the unique
modular system approach keeps audio
systems current. Every Euphonix
owner continues to benefit from
significant new features and
enhancements added through
software releases and hardware
options. The system is designed so
that it may be upgraded and
expanded in the field. Euphonix
systems will keep a studio
competitive and current into the next
century.

The flexible Euphonix CS3000 system
is offered in a wide variety of
configurations. Factory options
including renowned dynamics
processors, surround sound buses,
aux/cue/multitrack bus expansion,
and master facilities expansion may
be combined to augment the base
system which is scalable from 8 to
104 faders. A unique software
package, MixView, operates the audio
hardware in tandem with the engineer
while automatically adapting to the
large number of possible system
configurations.
The standardized CS3000M configuration is specifically tailored to suit
traditional music recording and
mixing applications. The "M" system
package includes a dynamics
processor for every channel and the
main mix buses, 12 multi-format
buses (for use as additional aux/cue
or surround mix buses, plus 4 aux/cue
sends to 8 primary aux buses, 24
multi-track buses, and the Master
Expansion option. In addition, an
innovative new machine control
interface is included to implement
locating and cueing of multiple audio
and video machines and the
automation system from the console
and a music sequencer at the same
time. All system options may be
factory fitted or installed as a field
upgrade any time later with minimal
disruption.
The 12 multi-format buses provide up
to 48 channels with an additional 12
assignable aux sends, controlled from
the DSC rotary controls with send
level, mutes and meters shown
graphically on the screen. The
engineer may alternately use these
multi-format buses as surround sound
mix buses with full panning. It is also
possible to choose combinations of
sends and surround buses. For
example, with 12 multi-format buses
the engineer can configure 8 sends
per channel and use the last 4 buses
as an LCRS surround sound mix bus.
All major surround sound formats are
supported. No other console offers
this flexibility and power.

The CS Series of consoles include
powerful MIDI control features
allowing for connection to the
studio's MIDI network. MIDI machine
control is included from the console's
transport and locate keys. The
SnapShot Recall system also
integrates MIDI program change data
so SnapShots may be triggered
externally from a sequencer. Each
SnapShot also includes MIDI program
change messages so outboard
equipment may be re-programmed
when a SnapShot is fired from the
console. This becomes even more
powerful when SnapShots are
triggered from the SnapShot
Automation system as effects devices
can be made to change program
number at an easily defined timecode
point. Every channel fader on the
console may be programmed to
output MIDI control data so that the
engineer may adjust external MIDI
equipment using faders and the
automation system to store and
playback moves. Console objects may
also receive MIDI control data so
external controllers can be made to
operate specific controls on the
console.
VU Meters
Twin Bargraph
Meters
Each channel includes twin meters
that may be selected to display
channel sources, post fader stereo
outputs and automation levels.
CleaR Displays™
Optional eight character electronic fader displays can be added
to the console in groups of sixteen. Separate fader names can
be saved and recalled for each title, making transitions from
one project to the next, fast and simple. No more lost or worn
out masking tape strips.
The CS3000 includes three selectable mechanical
VU meters used to show Left, Right and Mono
levels (or LCR) sourced from either of the two
main stereo buses. A Phase correlation LED
display is also provided.
Mic/Line
Preamps
Each channel includes two
universal gain amplifiers
which accept mic or line
level signals. These input
sections provide phase
reverse, high pass filter,
phantom power and variable
gain control. Four additional
balanced line inputs are
included, making a total of
six inputs per channel.
Cue/Aux
Sends
4 dynamically automated
level controls can be
sourced from pre or post
fader signals and may be
assigned to any of eight
auxiliary output buses-user
selectable to operate as four
mono or two stereo sends.
Moving
Faders
The CS3000 is supplied
standard with moving lower
faders. Optionally, upper
moving faders may be
ordered. The automation
system provides all standard
moving fader functions
including Monitor Before
Record (preview) and Touch
Record. Every fader may
control a mono or stereo
source, doubling the number
of signals of the system is
capable of controlling. Fader
motors may be switched off
if required.
Master Control
Module
CS3000
Frame
Fitted with comfortable leather
arm rests and premium quality
faders and rotary controls, the
CS3000 frame is modular
allowing additional sections to
be added in the field. Special
metalwork is available to
convert single operator frames
to dual operator systems. And
custom options are available
for fitting client equipment,
such as reverb remotes, into
blank panels.
The Master Control Module houses the two master
stereo output bus faders, monitor output controls,
Aux send master controls, oscillator and solo
controls, together with 8 selectable bargraph
meters.
Central
Control Features
DSC™(Digital Studio Controller)
All Euphonix systems feature an assignable central
control module, the Digital Studio Controller or DSC™.
Located in the center of the console, the DSC is home
to many of Euphonix most powerful features. Machine
control, external MIDI control, SnapShot Recall™, Total
Automation™, EQ, Dynamics, input and monitoring
matrix, GPI programming, speaker selection,
communications microphones, and surround panning all
take advantage of these assignable rotary controls and
keys to quickly process operator input.
I/O Control Module
Each module includes controls for four channels. All controls
are placed within easy reach from a seated position.
Channel controls include; twin bargraph meters, Mic/line
input gain controls, four cue send controls, upper and
lower faders, pan, and mute controls together with
“hidden-til-lit” displays of routing and
channel status.
Sliding
Keyboard Tray
For easy access to the computer
keyboard. Additional trays may be
ordered.
Color
Graphics
Screen
TrackPanner™
For systems specified with multiformat surround sound mix buses this
optional track ball module may be
fitted to allow the selected channel's
signal to be panned across a surround
sound field.
An active matrix color screen provides
real time graphical display of automation
moves, EQ curves, dynamics processing,
surround panning position, assignable aux
levels, and bus master levels. Automation
editing and project file management are
also supported by this interface.
Assignable Keys
16 function keys with 8 character labels. Used for SnapShot Recall, expanded
monitor input selection, presets, speaker select and MIDI functions.
Assignable
Rotary
Control Set
Twelve assignable rotary controls
work interactively with the
screen for selection and
adjustment of EQ, dynamics,
expanded aux sends and
surround panning. Turn a

Channel Select & Routing Keys
Centralized selection of input channels for assignable control is
made possible so the engineer never has to leave the monitoring sweet
spot. Routing may also be assigned and displayed in this section.
Central Machine Controls
Full set of transport remote controls, which include powerful locate
and screen based cue list search functions. Three Sony 9 pin and
three MIDI machine control ports are provided along with time

The CS3000 offers major advantages over other
systems for recording and overdubbing; advantages that benefit
the engineer, the producer and the musician.
However each Euphonix channel includes two four band Equalizers
allowing both the source and the monitor signal to be processed!
Sound Quality
The CS3000M includes 12 assignable aux sends, normally
dedicated to the lower monitor faders, along with the dynamics
and filters, giving these lower moving faders enough facilities to
allow the engineer to make truly powerful mixes during recording
The CS3000 provides an extremely clean and transparent signal
path, which ensures that signals are captured to the storage
medium with optimum clarity. The Universal Inputs feature state-
Real Monitor Mixes
recording, tracking, overdubbing
of-the-art preamplifiers with ruler-flat frequency response and
ultra-low noise and distortion. The balanced line inputs are
optimized for line-level signals, and provide high common mode
rejection and plenty of headroom. Euphonix consoles are known
worldwide for their noticeably superior sonic quality, and this
tradition continues with the CS3000.
and overdubbing. Euphonix automation allows the engineer to
include automation of the monitor mix if necessary which is
especially useful during the overdubbing process. A monitor mix
no longer has to be a rough mix; it can now have the full power
of a final mix with EQ, dynamics, filters, 12 sends and automated
moving faders!
Recording Configuration
SnapShot Recall
Upper faders usually source mic or line inputs to the multitrack
buses or to the direct channel outputs. Since each fader can
control a mono or stereo input, it is possible to bring in stereo
sources on a single fader, doubling the system's input capability!
The 4 automated cue/aux send controls per channel are used for
providing up to two stereo foldback mixes. Lower faders act as
monitor faders, exactly the same as with an in-line system.
SnapShot Recall enables the artist to move from one cue to
another instantly; no waiting for the console to be reset manually.
SnapShot recall also brings back complex cue mixes, all routing,
source levels and processing at the touch of a button. The system
encourages the engineer to refine the monitor mix over time,
providing the artist with a better mix to record/overdub too, and
creates a more refined monitor mix at the end of each session.
Total Automation
Euphonix provides a level of creative possibilities that have never
been possible on consoles with automation systems limited to
just faders and mutes. With MixView software version 3.0 the
Euphonix provides expressive dynamic automation of upper and
lower channel faders and mutes, stereo panning, aux sends, and
EQ. In addition, SnapShots may be fired live to timecode allowing
instantaneous mix changes to occur at transition points or
breakdowns in the mix (a feature unique to the Euphonix).
possible to run automation during the overdubbing process
without interfering with normal operation. Parts of the console
may be automated while others may be set to manual.
Automation moves are shown on screen for each control in the
selected channel.
Signal Processing
The Euphonix CS3000 is equipped with powerful processing such
as the highly acclaimed 4 band equalizers and the optional
advanced dynamics processors and filters. Each dynamics
mixing
SnapShot Recall
Integral to each mix is a SnapShot of the entire console. When a
Euphonix mix is loaded, every control, including EQs, dynamics,
filters, pans and routing are instantly recalled. At any time a
SnapShot of the console's settings may be saved and instantly
compared to a previously stored SnapShot at the push of a button
making it easy to audition subtle changes from one mix to
another. Instant recall of the settings makes it a simple matter to
go back and make changes to an older mix. It also makes it
possible to A/B compare final mixes on-the-fly with earlier
monitor mixes made months ago. A newly included comprehensive off-line editing package provides the engineer with tools
to cut, copy, insert, delete and merge one mix with another.
Simple To Operate
Euphonix automation is comprehensive and simple to operate,
with dedicated keys for master status, and standard modes such
as write, trim, touch record, safe, monitor-before-record, write-tohead, write-to-end and write-through the entire mix. It is even
processor includes programs to compress, expand, de-ess, limit
and gate.
Lower faders are typically sourced from the multitrack return,
freeing the automated upper faders for mono or stereo effects
returns and additional live inputs to the mix. Each fader has a
dedicated EQ, doubling the number of full function paths in the
system during remix.
Effects Devices
The CS3000M offers the ultimate mixing facility by adding
dynamics to all lower faders and providing a total of 16 sends
available for effects: 4 send controls in each channel feed 8 aux
buses, and 12 additional assignable sends per channel. The upper
faders may also be used as a send from lower fader signals to a
multitrack bus, then routed to outboard effects devices in exactly
the same way as an in-line system is used. Stereo effects devices
may be returned on a single fader, which greatly increases input
capacity during mixdown.

The ES108A, an eight
channel dynamics option,
features a unique architecture employing DSP to
precisely compute the gain
function. This approach
results in a state-of-the-art
gain control device with
unmatched sonic performance. The ES108A supports
SnapShot Recall so functions
can be stored and reset at
the touch of a button. Users
can add their own presets to
the library of factory presets
available at all times from the removable non-volatile memory.
Each channel has two 4band digital control
equalizers. EQs can be
instantly adjusted from one
setting to the next using
the SnapShot Recall
system, or dynamically
automated under MixView
3.0. A real-time color
graphic display of the EQ
response curve, complete
with band interaction, sets
new standards for ease and
speed. EQ is adjusted from
the center mix position
using the central assignable
controls; no more gymnastics are needed to adjust and listen to
dynamics, EQ and Aux Sends
A Euphonix patented color graphical display shows dynamic gain
control in action. The Gain Ball™ makes set-up, operation, and
monitoring of the ES108A’s operation fast, simple and intuitive. A
red ball tracks the theoretical gain curve in real-time and visually
indicates attack and release time adjustments. For the first time the
effect of dynamic processing can be accurately predicted and
displayed. Standard gain functions are available to be used
simultaneously. A new mode, Dynamic Notch, creates a frequency
dependent gain reduction band
ideal for use in de-essing or deringing, as well as solving many
other gain related problems.
Also as a part of each channel
the ES108A includes a pair of
digital control filters which can
be individually selected to low
pass, high pass, band pass, or
notch. These 12 dB per octave
filters can be placed in the main
signal path, or the side chain of
the gain control element. The
ES108A is so flexible it even
allows the operator to select
negative compression ratios for
very special gain-based effects.
The ES108A is more than just a
compressor / expander / limiterit’s a creative tool!
subtle EQ adjustments, since the operator is always in the
monitoring sweet spot.
Critically acclaimed for musicality and flexibility, the Euphonix EQ
features the broadest mid-band frequency sweep range and overlap
of any analog console EQ. The Lo-Mid band sweeps from 41.2 Hz to
1.3 kHz, and the Hi-Mid band sweeps from 659 Hz to 21.5 kHz both
with an adjustable Q from .32 to 11.6. The two independent EQs in
each channel can be locked together for precise stereo signal control
or placed in series on a mono signal
to create complex EQ characteristics,
capable of creating effects or solving
the most stubborn problems.
Extra Aux Sends
Adding the optional Audio Cube™, a
system can be expanded to include
from 4 to 48 additional aux output
buses, making the total aux sends
available a staggering 56! Either
channel fader may access these
buses. Information relative to the
Audio Cube is stored and recalled as
a part of the SnapShot Recall system.
A future planned upgrade will
provide dynamic automation of these
send levels, and like all Euphonix
modular expansions, this can be
added to the system at any time.
...more time to create
Traditional consoles, even those with so-called “total recall”, still
require hours of manual knob resetting during a project in order to
get back to saved titles and mixes. These mechanically operated
systems have never had the ability to recall outboard dynamics and
effects processors. Imagine the time saved if it were possible to
jump from one title to the next in just a minute instead of an hour.
Artists‘ performances would be improved by allowing them to be
continuously creative without the down time it takes to manually
reset the console. Producers would find they required less time to
get the tracks recorded. Projects would be completed faster than
possible with a manual reset console system.
All of this is possible today with Euphonix, the only digital control
analog audio console that recalls and resets all the major
components of a mixing environment automatically. Euphonix title
recall resets faders, mutes, pan/bal, aux send levels, EQ settings,
dynamics settings, routing, surround panning, MIDI program change
for external signal processors, monitor configuration, tape location
cues ...Everything instantly!
add noise gating, compression, expansion, ducking, de-essing, and
other frequency selective processing functions to every channel.
Audio subgroups may be specified in three different configurations:
24 mono (or 12 stereo) subgroups sourced from lower faders, 12
mono, or 6 stereo subgroups sourced from all faders. These
configurations can be changed easily in the field. Two stereo
outputs, plus PFL, AFL and solo buses completes the bus structure of
the system.
...delivers the highest sound
quality
The most demanding audio professionals use Euphonix mixing
systems because of their exceedingly high sound quality. Audio
circuitry is built without compromise, using only the highest grade
components, delivering the cleanest audio path possible while at the
same time, providing all the power and flexibility expected of full
digital control. All audio signal processing is housed in the Audio
Tower so noise, RFI, and crosstalk can be minimized. Circuit layout is
optimized for maximum audio performance, not limited by the
the benefits of digital control
...more creative possibilities
Euphonix SnapShot Recall™ is a digital “picture” of the console’s
surface. Within 1/30th second SnapShot recall will reset the controls
to those positions previously stored. It’s a a powerful tool which
frees mixers from banal mechanical tasks and allows for a greater
focus to be placed on the sound of the final mix.
SnapShot Recall can be used to create multiple mixes and to
compare them instantly in real-time. SnapShot Recall allows instant
changes of EQ and/or dynamics without being forced to tie up two
channels of the mixing system. This frees valuable faders for more
inputs to the mix. Euphonix digital control system with SnapShot
Recall makes remixing a project easier and faster than ever. Once the
title is recalled and the console is reset, you are right back to where
you left off, ready to start mixing again without laboring for hours
to get “close” to where you were before!
...more routing & processing
flexibility
From an operational standpoint, the Euphonix provides a wide range
of functionality without compromising user access. Each channel strip
features 2 variable gain universal amplifiers and 4 line level inputs.
Any of these 6 input sources can be assigned in mono or stereo to
either of two long throw faders, one upper and one lower (moving
faders available). Two 4 band digital control EQ sections can be
placed into the signal paths either as mono or a locked stereo pair.
Each channel also has 4 dedicated, dynamically automated auxiliary
output controls, selectable as mono or stereo sends to any of 8
dedicated output buses and if more are needed, than up to 48 extra
send buses may be added at any time. Optional dynamics processors
physical restrictions of an input module as is required in a
traditional, mechanical style console.
...assures the highest reliability
High reliability and ease of maintenance is achieved through the
combination of analog circuitry, mature software and modular
hardware. Audio electronics housed in the Audio Tower are fan
cooled and built in removable tray assemblies with local voltage
regulation. Design is modular throughout, for easy replacement and
troubleshooting of all system components. Mix Controller modules
are grouped as four channels and can be removed or replaced in
seconds. Multiple processors provide independent operation of the
Mix Controller (digital control surface), the Audio Tower (analog
processing), and the MixView computer. Even in the event the
computer is off-line or the digital control surface loses power, the
audio output is not interrupted. Optional redundant power supplies
provide uninterrupted power under the most difficult conditions.
...prepared for the future
Ready to meet the audio demands of surround-sound, DVD, DTS
multi-channel CD, and any other future development, Euphonix’s
optional Hyper-Surround system provides stereo and surround
panning from every channel and fully supports all multi-channel
formats in use today. With unique software controlled configuration,
Euphonix Hyper-Surround lets you create custom mix formats up to
32 channels wide, complete with automated panning. The multiformat mix buses used for Hyper-Surround mixing are supplied as an
optional hardware module (Audio Cube), which can be added even
after installation, protecting one’s investment.

Surround
Sound for
Today...and
Tomorrow
• 16 General Purpose Interface Relays (GPIs)
Home theater surround-sound systems and
motion pictures have raised consumer
expectations for multi-channel audio playback.
Advanced TV will add significantly to the growing
demand for programming in surround-sound. DVD and
HDCD technologies now provide media capable of
delivering multi-channel music and video programs. Plans
now in development from DTS to supply multi-channel music
disks with 5.1 channels of high quality sound from a Compact Disc.
GPIs are ideal for interfacing cart machines or other switch closure driven devices to the
CS3000’s manual or automated control systems.
• Clean Feeds for ST1 and ST2
Clean feeds bypass the MX464 electronics unit completely, insuring basic
console operations even if the electronics unit is inactive.
• Mono Feeds for ST1 and ST2
Left and Right signals from the two main stereo buses are
electronically summed and fed to a high quality balanced line
driver.
• Comprehensive 288 Jack Patchbay
Premium quality half-normalled TT jacks wired to
multi-pin connectors and shielded in a metal
enclosure.
A console that can’t keep pace with these trends faces the same
destiny as the typewriter. The Euphonix CS series consoles are designed to
integrate seamlessly with the Audio Cube expansion module, adding from 4
to 48 multi-format mix buses. Hyper-Surround software then defines these
buses as stem mix outputs for multi-channel mixing. Formats can be defined as
wide as 32 channels. High resolution controls (pan, surround, focus, divergence, and
boom level) allow for precise positioning of sounds, both audibly and through an
intuitive graphic display screen.

training
There are over 350 systems installed worldwide making Euphonix an extremely
popular mixing system. This popularity creates a large demand for operator
training. Euphonix is committed to providing in-depth training programs
through individual offices or via new demo systems made available to areas not
directly served by the offices. Euphonix provides a detailed operational manual
and one-on-one training for engineers interested in learning the system. The
Euphonix web site also includes training resources with on-line versions of the
System Overview available for browsing or download.
The Euphonix system is easy to learn, with simple operation of EQ, dynamics,
aux sends and automation. Its unique routing is different from in-line systems
due to the large number of inputs and outputs available from the console. Most
engineers feel at home after a couple of sessions behind the console. Once you
master powerful features such as the SnapShot Recall system it is difficult to go
back to a traditional analog system. To find out why the Euphonix is so popular
and easy to learn, contact any of the Euphonix offices or distributors to schedule
training or a self paced tutorial.
web page
Euphonix has been online since October 1995 with one of the industry’s most
informative websites. Our website has over 100 pages of information about the
company and the CS range of consoles. The website provides a unique up-to-date
resource for anyone interested in finding out about Euphonix. There are
