The TMC-1 Monitor Controller Remote Evolution



The TMC-1 has come a long way since it was released about 3 years ago, to act as a remote to the XMon.  With some of the following changes made over the course of it's lifetime.

  • An Ethernet port was added to allow connection to the DAD AX32.
  • The 15 pin D-Sub was changed to a HD15 pin D-Sub, due to being not able to source the 15 pin D-Sub leads.
  • An external mic input was added.
  • The Display was improved and is now much clearer and readable .
  • An external switch input was added, to allow control of Ext T/B 1, Mute, Dim, SLS mute, Int T/B 1, and Int T/B 2.
  • OSC Control via Tablet or Phone.
  • TMC-1 PC/Mac Setup software, with the ability to load and save different setups.
  • There have been many firmware updates for the TMC-1 adding features and keeping up with the ever changing industry needs.
  • The TMC-1 now connects to the XMon, DAD AX32, Avid MTRX, Trinnov D-Mon, CB A-Mon, Ashly ne8800, and soon the CB I-Mon Immersive Monitor Controller.
 
You are never locked into a fixed solution as the TMC-1 hardware stays the same, for example you can upgrade your system from XMon to Avid MTRX with just the purchase of a upgrade key and a firmware install via USB.

Some of the customer comments we have had are:

  •  "It's great having the unified interface no matter which studio we are in stereo to Atmos, we know how to use the monitoring system"
  • "Great product! We love using this device"
  • "The Auto Talkback/Listenback feature is great it makes the glass disappear"
