OUR PART # M-5000C-PROMO
Rolandâ€™s M-5000C is a recent addition to the upper midrange console market that brings adaptability to the world of live audio mixing with OHRCA (Open High Resolution Configurable Architecutre), which conforms to the needs of both the application and the operator by delivering 128 freely definable audio paths, expandable protocols, multi-format I/O choices, and flexible user interface and workflow â€“ all at 24-bit / 96 kHz sound quality. This allows you to essentially "build" a console structure based on the immediate needs of the application. This makes for a console that accommodates high levels of flexibility for precise response to dynamically changing applications and venues.
NOTE: This is a special promotion for a limited time. For more information on this and other products, please contact your Sales Pro.
â€śOpen" refers to the consoleâ€™s ability to adapt to many different formats of inputs, outputs, and protocols. This includes the large variety of Roland digital snakes already in the lineup but also protocols, such as Dante, MADI, Waves SoundGrid, additional REAC ports, and other formats and solutions to come.
â€śHigh Resolutionâ€ť refers to everything running at 96 kHz â€“ end to end. All of the Roland Pro A/V peripherals have been 96 kHz-capable from the start. From the preamps running high-end 24-bit AD/DA converters to all the carefully selected components and processors, youâ€™re guaranteed pristine sound that is noticeably better. It starts with a high sampling rate of 96 kHz. The discrete circuitry was precisely designed with careful component selection and circuit architecture, separation of analog and digital sound modules, 72-bit linear summing circuit, and more.
â€śConfigurable Architectureâ€ť is the consoleâ€™s ability to adapt to the application - allowing you to essentially â€śbuildâ€ť the mixer you need based on input channels, or auxiliary buses, groups, or matrices. All of the elements that are typically fixed in most mixers are flexible with OHRCA. How you work with faders, buttons, and knobs and screen is also adaptable to how you are used to working already.
Extensibility is a key feature of the M-5000C, as itâ€™s adaptable to numerous audio networks and I/O needs, with input and output options galore â€“ including Dante, MADI, Waves SoundGrid, REAC, XI-SDI, XI-SFP and XI-DVI opening the door to endless configurations and applications. Up to 300 inputs and 296 outputs (and more at 48 kHz) are managed in separate patch bays. Any input can be patched to any or multiple outputs, including control of gain and phantom power without having to be patched through a mixing channel.
Rolandâ€™s M-5000C is a user interface with the ability to adapt to the preferences of the engineer, and the concept behind the interface is "freedom", accommodating the individual workflow of the engineer to the greatest extent possible. Operation is centered on a 12â€ť touch screen, with flat design and vector graphics for clear and vivid display of information. The 16 encoders feature rings whose colors change according to their assigned functions to match on-screen parameters. The "touch and turn" mechanism of touching the desired parameter and turning the selected knob achieves fast, intuitive operation.
Each of the eight-fader bank sections is equipped with an Isolate function that enables scrolling and layer switching independently or in tandem. Different elements can be assigned to each bank, such as mix channels to one fader section and DCAs to a second fader section. â€śJumpâ€ť to often-used fader scrolling positions using Anchor points or assign critical channels to the four assignable fixed faders. With user-assignable controls and bright, informative display, the right side of the surface features an assignable section that lets the user assign key functions for quick access. Bright, full-color OEL displays offer excellent visibility in any light.
Operate the console from a computer on a second or third display for flexible control and extendible screen space. The M-5000 GUI allows multiple windows, and features support for high-resolution displays. The dedicated app supports remote control from an iPad and supports Retina displays for crystal clear graphics.
An ideal solution for the monitor engineer, the M-5000 offers an Engineering Monitor function that mirrors each musician's M-48 enabling the engineer to hear exactly what the musician is hearing. Connect it to one of the two monitor buses and toggle back and forth between musicians using personal mixers and those using traditional bussing.
Multi-Channel Playback and Record
With 48-channels of playback and recording, there is no re-patching required. When inserted in-line between the I/O and the console, not only do you get full control of arming tracks, routing, starting, stopping with the Roland R-1000 48-Track Recorder/Player â€“ you get playback for concerts, sound checks, training â€“ all the through the identical signal chain as your live sources with no patching required - complete with preamp compensation if necessary.
Remote I/O Choices
There are an extensive lineup of digital snakes to choose from - all running at 24-bit/96kHz:
S-4000S Modular Digital Snake; S-2416 Digital Snake; S-1608/S-0816 Digital Snake; S-0808 Digital Snake
