Welcome to the uni
The Compact Sy40 is a new professional digital audio mixing console for live applications from Innova SON.
Its high degree of flexibility means it is equally at home producing a mix for front-of-house, stereo in-ear monitors or wedges. The Compact Sy40 is also the ideal console for an outside broadcast van or for recording live events.
verse of Innova SON
The emphasis on quality throughout the design and manufacturing processes, coupled with its direct relationship with the other
Innova SON consoles, gives the Compact Sy40 unequalled audio performance, ergonomics and ease of use. No wonder it is
already the standard digital audio console in its category.
Not just a console
To the usual features of an analog console, the Compact Sy40 adds the Stage Box with digital audio transmission, input
and output grids, and the fantastic Hyper-Drive processor. This is a complete system, combining the best of the analog and
digital worlds:
• 8 to 64 mic/line-level physical inputs, plus 8 line level
inputs, which can be assigned to any channel and routed
to the GrAux and Master busses
• 40 input channels, 24 mono + 8 stereo faders
• 12 stereo busses with 12 faders
• independent pre/post fader and panning for each channel
and bus
• subgroup routing of busses to the masters
• 3 separate L, R, M/C master faders
• 8 to 64 physical outputs with or without Hyper-Drive
audio processing (EQ, dynamics, delay, level)
• choice between analog, AES digital or both for inputs
and outputs
• dynamic processing and equalization on all input channels and processed outputs, plus delay (Hyper-Drive)
• stereo monitoring with PFL, AFL and APL (After
Processing Level) listening on headphones or via allocated
outputs
• optional Stage Box (digital splitter) enables the inputs to
be displaced to the stage, close to the sound sources
• up to 500 m of coaxial cable
• gain and 48V can be remotely controlled by the console
• intuitive, simple, user-friendly interface provided by
the free, continuously developing software package
Sensoft

A console with live
Although the Compact Sy40 is the entry-level solution in the Innova SON range of consoles - it shares the same intuitive,
user-friendly interface as the other Innova SON desks.
mixing in its genes
For live work, you need to be able to forget about the tools and concentrate on achieving a quality mix efficiently. This goal
can be achieved quickly and without compromise in even the most complex of productions with a high-powered console on
which you can be operational in minutes.
Legendary
ease
of
Take a look at a Compact Sy40 – everything you
need is there. Each function has its own switch,
fader or control knob. A foldaway screen gives an
overview of the mix and provides the interface with
the system. Everything is within reach: all the
controls for changing parameters are available
immediately with no need for menus. The designers
have striven to make the commands intuitive, geared to live work and consistent with the system’s
overall logic. The result is an acclaimed ease of use
- even from first time Innova SON users!
Within a few minutes of use, you can grasp the
basics of the Compact Sy40 and quickly begin
using it to its full potential. You will immediately
appreciate its small size and weight, its reliability...
and its sound.
Audio performance
with integrated
processing
From the moment the first microphone is plugged in until the final mix is output, you are in the
world of digital sound. Parallel architecture
ensures that propagation times remain fixed
whatever the conditions, which is critical for live
sound. The desk’s other audio characteristics,
such as the quality of the microphone preamps,
place the Compact Sy40 firmly in the exclusive
group of top-of-the-range consoles.
Additionally, the Compact Sy40 has a large
number of internal processing resources which
remove the need for almost all peripherals..
• For each input channel: gain and 48V for
microphone preamps, plus phasing, low-cut
filter, gate and compressor, 4-filter full-band
parametric equalization, pre/post output, and
dependent or independent pre/post panning
per bus.
use
• For each physical output with Hyper-Drive:
gate, compressor, 8-filter full-band parametric
equalization, delay up to 1.35 second, and
output level adjustment.
Setting up the mix requires convenient, quick
routing and signal distribution functions. New
facilities that do not exist in analog systems,
such as storing all settings for recall at any time,
make life much easier and open the door to new
mixing possibilities. The output distribution grid
also makes it possible to define direct
inputs/outputs and insert points.
At showtime, the automation functions let you
call up pages recorded during rehearsals or
soundchecks. Using these functions, you can
choose to make page changes manually or to
control them using MIDI events or MTC frames.
You can create a set list before the show, organizing the order and timing of the pages, and
then run through it using your preferred automation mode. During the show you can alter the set
list at any time and control the mix precisely.
Modularity
Innova SON’s modular architecture offers another
considerable advantage – you can use all the digital
audio input/output modules in the Sensory® range
of consoles. Some modules can also be placed on
stage in the Stage Box, using digital transmission
via coaxial cable.
Existential question
Can you live without a Compact Sy40? If you try
it, you may well find you can no longer do
without! So try it and see!

Input signal pat
Microphones: preamp, gain, 48V, phase, insert
To ensure the best sound quality, the first step is to make sure that the input signals are carefully preamplified before being
converted from analogue to digital. As the path of the signal within the console is entirely digital, there will be no loss of
sound quality due to internal processing. Our engineers have spent a great deal of time designing top-of-the-range microphone preamps and converters that provide optimum quality and listening comfort for each of the various types of sounds
used in today’s productions. These preamps fully satisfy the necessary physical criteria preamp gain for each mic/line input,
local or remote, of –27 to +63 dB.
The stage hands have not been forgotten, either: mic inputs are identified in the Stage Box with LEDs indicating the
presence of 48V on the signal, its level and any peaking. This saves time and makes life much easier.
Digital input distribution grid:
Patch IN
The console has been designed to make even the most detailed level of the mix controllable. The Compact Sy40 can mix 40 input channels
simultaneously, with 24 mono channels and 8 stereo channels. The console can receive up to 32 local mic/line inputs or up to 64 with the Stage
Box, plus 8 line-level inputs, each of which can be allocated to one of the 40 input channels using the Patch IN grid.
No more manual patch changes during a show or between two artists! The microphones are connected to the input modules once and once
only, regardless of if they are located in the console or in the Stage Box.. Innova SON has created a digital distribution grid (Patch IN), which takes
its place between the physical inputs – local or remote – and the console’s channels. The grid is accessed using an intuitive and easy-to-read
screen. The Patch IN grid, along with the gain, 48V, mute and dynamic processing settings, are stored in the stage pages, which can be called
up at any time.
For example, if a guitarist plays several instruments during a show, they can all be connected once, with a page being defined for each
instrument used and assigned to the “guitar” channel. The page can even be changed in the middle of the performance!
As you may have guessed, the Patch IN grid is not the only thing that can be saved in the stage pages: all the console’s parameters
are stored here too, with each page acting as a snapshot of all the settings, which can be called up at any time.
th
Input channel,
motorized fader, label,
mute, cue, VU-meter
All the input channels are equipped with the essential controls that enable them to be monitored and
adjusted instantly: Fader, Mute and Cue. The
channel label displays the instrument name, which
the user has entered, and the selection switch
gives access to the channel’s settings. A VU-meter
shows the signal level before or after processing,
depending on the user’s preference, and also
serves as an indication of an opened or closed
noise gate.
Channel settings:
preamp, phase,
dynamics, equalization
Accessing and viewing the parameters of a whole
channel is immediate – just press its Select switch.
If a channel is in stereo, each time the Select key
is pressed, the screen display will alternate
between the left and right channels.
The Channel Control panel contains all the settings
for the preamp, dynamics and equalization. All
changes are immediately applied to the sound and
reflected on the screen. This gives an idea of the
power and simplicity of the Compact Sy40 method.
There is no need for submenus or complex key
combinations - the logic of the live console provides simple, error-free access, right from the start.
The left part of the Channel Control panel
gives direct control over the preamp, with gain
from –27 to +63 dB, phantom power, phase inversion and the effect insertion point. Note the wide
dynamic range, which will satisfy both those who
set fader gain to 0 dB and those who want to get
the maximum number of bits from the converters.
For dynamic processing, 8 knobs and switches
enable instant adjustment of the Gate/Expander
and Compressor/Limiter parameters, while the
screen displays the effect on the signal. Gain
reductions can be displayed for all channels
simultaneously.
To achieve the goal of total flexibility, the equalization processor provides 4 parametric bands as
well as a low-cut filter. The four bands cover the
whole spectrum from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, with ±15
dB of gain and from 1/8 to 8 octaves for
the Q factor. The low-cut filter offers 12 cut-off
frequencies at 12 dB/octave. Using this section,
the user can sculpt any correction curve, with the
additional possibility of having each gain knob
reach a “notch” position – in this case, the band
filter acts as an attenuator of 50 dB in proportion
with the variation of the Q factor!

Ouput signal path
Pre/post fader, routing and universal busses
Routing channels to the output busses is just as easy. Just hold down the channel’s Select button and press the Select buttons for the required busses. Or alternatively, select a bus and then choose the channels to be routed to it. There is also a
simple shortcut which makes it even quicker to make assignments when routing several consecutive channels to a bus.
A channel’s Select button also gives easy access to the Aux Sends. After pressing the Select button, the Aux faders will show
the levels at which the channel is sent to the busses. When a bus is selected, its fader shows the general level of the bus, and
the input faders show the levels of the Aux Sends for each channel being routed to that bus. The selected mix can now be
viewed immediately, arranged horizontally. This is extremely useful for monitor mixing.
Panning for channels and busses
All channels, both mono and stereo, have a panning setting, which is either dependent on the Master setting (channels entering the GrAux
busses will all have the same panning) or independent of the Master setting (each channel will have independent panning settings in each
GrAux). There is also a balance setting for the stereo channels. These adjustments can be made immediately using the shortcut, or even
more powerfully from the Pan screen. This screen also gives full access to each channel’s pre/post definitions for each bus. The Compact
Sy40 is equally at home mixing for front-of-house and for monitors.
The Master bus has three mono faders: Left, Right and Center/Mono. The 12 GrAux busses each have a stereo fader. Like the Channel
faders, all of the Master Bus faders and GrAux Bus faders are fully automated. These busses are controlled in the same way as the channels, with Select, Mute, Cue and Label buttons. Pressing the Select button gives instant access to all the bus parameters via the Channel
Control panel. Nothing could be more intuitive - this process is identical for the inputs, and is still just as simple!
The monitoring bus provides listening modes for monitoring inputs as PFL (pre-fader level) or AFL (after fader level), and outputs as PFL,
AFL and APL (after processing level). The features are completed by adjustments of the solo and automatic attenuation levels. You can also
patch physical outputs to the monitoring bus, making it possible to listen via a speaker circuit or an in-ear monitor system.
Patch OUT : digital distribution grid
for outputs, Direct I/O and inserts
The Patch OUT grid lets you create insert points and allocate physical inputs to
Direct OUTs. It also enables you to assign the Master, GrAux and monitoring busses
to the physical outputs.
The Master, GrAux and monitoring busses are linked to
outputs using the output distribution grid (Patch OUT).
the inputs, the busses are separated from the physical
making it possible to allocate a single bus to several

outputs.
Hyper-Drive
When the outputs are equipped with Hyper-Drive audio processing (XO-8D, DO-8X), each output has a complete dynamic processing section – gate and compressor, fully sweepable parametric equalization with eight bands, delay of up to
1.35 second and output level adjustment from +10.5 dBu to
+22 dBu.
Everything is there and easily accessible – there is no need
for external racks; just connect your amplifiers!

Sensoft 7.3
Controlled by a removable PC
The Compact Sy40 is equipped with a PC-compatible module which runs Sensoft 7.3 and manages the control surface. The flat
LCD color screen displays all the mix parameters in real time, and reflects all changes immediately. Elegantly fitted in a recess,
the screen pivots around its horizontal axis so that the user can adjust its angle for optimum viewing comfort and to keep it protected during transport.
Off-line, the most faithful of assistants!
Sensoft® 7.3 is the ideal companion for an Innova SON console. It can be used on any PC, which enables you to prepare a
performance at home, while travelling or in the office. A floppy disk or even an email is enough to store the console’s settings
– simply load the saved files – and rehearsals can begin. You can download the latest version of Sensoft free from Innova SON’s
website, and keep your console at the cutting edge of the latest developments.
A determinist system
The high number of Innova SON consoles which are used more than 300 days a year is clear proof of their solidity and reliability! Because the
show must go on, our developers have designed a parallel architecture so that resources are distributed between the audio processors; this
means that the latency and propagation times for audio signals are fixed and extremely low. All the calculations associated with dynamic processing, equalization and mixing are carried out, whether they are used or not. All types of audio processing are operational at all times. You can
de-mute or open all the channels at the same time and the system will react instantaneously. With 40-bit floating point, you can be sure of more
than 700 dB of headroom.
Now that your console has been configured perfectly, the soundcheck has been completed and the system is fully prepared – you can save all
of your parameters with a simple push of a button. By pressing the Save button all of your settings will be saved on the static hard disk to be
recalled whenever you choose, just as you left them.
Live functions
• The Link function provides four ways of creating links: input processing (dynamic, EQ etc.), level faders, mute and output groups (dynamics,
EQs, delays, levels). Any set of channels can be linked together regardless of whether their respective parameters are the same or not. Changing
one parameter of a linked channel has no effect on the other parameters of the other channels. Links are also associated with the current page,
which means they benefit from the automation system. The Link function lets you choose which parameters you wish to link in a particular group.
• The Copy function is designed for those who are wish to save time by not doing the same thing over and over again. It duplicates the settings
of one channel to another and gives you a choice of which parameters you wish to copy.
• Despite rehearsals, live work remains unpredictable. Having corrected an unforeseen problem in the current page, it is essential to copy the
correction for the other songs. The Overram function provides this facility and gives the choice of which parameters and memories to use.
• Off-Line, the ultimate tool for live sound when there is a last-minute change before - or even during - the performance! You need to be able to
access any page to adjust or check a setting. By using the Off-Line function, you can disconnect the console from the audio processing without
affecting any audio! While the mix continues to operate, you can make your changes as needed to make that all important last-minute change
happen. As soon as you release the Off-Line function, the current mix is returned just as you left it and you have easily and effortlessly made the
last minute change.
Automation
Sensoft 7.3 opens up the world of advanced automation. All the console settings can be
saved in one or more pages, and called up at any time during a performance. Editing functions make it easy to construct a set list from pages stored within the console that have been
created during rehearsals or at home. Innova SON provides several levels of automation for
the sequencing of pages.
• Snapshot automation is the most immediate. As each page is a snapshot of the console’s
settings, the Next button calls up the following page, the Previous button calls up the
previous page, and all the values for the parameters are applied instantaneously.
• Another option is automation with fades between one page’s settings and the next. Using
the automation control screen, you set a value corresponding to the length of the fade. When
the Next button is pressed, the transition to the next page occurs. The Cross-Time fader
allows you to adapt the transition speed to the reality of the performance so that you are
always in control.
• The console can be entirely synchronized using Midi Time Code frames. The set-up screen
gives you the option of triggering page changes with the arrival of MTC frames.
• The most comprehensive level of automation can be achieved using incoming or outgoing
MIDI events. In the automation control screen, the user chooses which page is to be called
when a MIDI program change code arrives, taking into account the values for the fade.
Conversely, the user can choose which program change should be transmitted on which
MIDI channel when a particular page becomes current. It is even possible for the console to
be operated entirely remotely, with page changes being triggered from another console or
an external sequencer.

Stored fader positions
An exclusive, patented innovation, the
“Sensory point” reminds you of the fader level
which is currently stored for the page: if you
move the fader manually, you will feel a slight
resistance along its run. This means that you
can test several different levels without
having to reload the page to return to the
original setting. Another example of the help
an onboard computer can provide, while
leaving you in total control: indispensable for
live work, don’t you think?
