A Wide Selection of Processing
An extensive selection of processing functions are found within the QSControl.net
platform, including:
Matrix Mixers
• Up to 24 Inputs and Outputs
Gain Sharing Automixing
• Facilitates any number of inputs up to 22
• Direct outputs available for every input
• A unique program reference input provides
for automatic mic attenuation whenever
program material is sensed
This latter feature is especially useful for
applications such as meetings using several
microphones, an automixer and multiple
sources of program material (e.g., CD, DVD,
etc.). With the program reference input,
the volume of the microphones can be
automatically attenuated to keep the other
sources from bleeding into the system.
Routers
• Can accommodate any combination of inputs
and outputs up to 24 x 24
Gain Controls
• Can accommodate any channel count up to 24
Graphic Equalizers
• Two Octave ISO
• One Octave ISO
• Two-Third ISO
• One-Third ISO
• Custom (choose number of bands, start
frequency and end frequency)
Crossovers
• Linkwitz-Riley
• Butterworth
• Bessel-Thomson in-phase
• Bessel-Thomson symmetrical
• 2-way, 3-way and 4-way general
purpose adjustable
Dynamics
• Compressor
• Peak limiter
• Dynamics processor
• Noise gate
• Automatic Gain Control — automatically
boosts lower signal levels up to the userdefined target output level and reduces
higher signal levels down to the user-defined
target output level. Features three modes of
operation: music, speech and custom
Duckers
• Up to eight channels of audio can be
simultaneously “ducked”. Fade-in and fadeout times can be up to 60 seconds each.
The priority channel can also be part of the
ducker’s output mix
Filters
• High-pass, low-pass, all-pass, shelf, parametric,
parametric shelf, Butterworth high and lowpass, Bessel-Thomson high and low-pass
Delays
• Up to 910 ms
• Units measured in time, meters, feet Pink Noise, White Noise, Sine Generators
Macros
• User-definable custom blocks with
password protection
A wide dynamic range is extremely important to today’s
audio professional, and the BASIS hardware delivers.
