If you are looking to upgrade your mixing console, or looking to create the ultimate addition to your studio, a new project created by Mana Modular might be worth more investigation over on Kickstarter.
The Mana Modular has been specifically designed to be the first in a series of small format mixers which have been created to allow you to build and configure your very own console to your exact requirements.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about the Mana Modular how it can be used to create the ultimate mixing console with ease.
High quality fader in every channel, best in class dual bus summing and mastering grade centre section. Sounds like a big console? Now add the freedom of 500 series modules and the ability to create bespoke configurations for analogue gear in your studio, in a device that can fit onto your desk.
500 series modules are a standard for analogue and digital audio hardware and have become a go-to format for small audio modules in the recent years. Their low up front cost and small footprint made them extremely popular among audio professionals.
The modular nature of the 500 series is at the heart of Mana. You get 10 slots for 500 modules allowing you, the user, to tailor Mana to your needs choosing from any microphone pre-amps, equalizers, compressors and other modules available on the market. Mana is the heart of a studio
The word “Mana” comes from Māori and means spiritual power and personal influence. For us, Mana represents highest quality, passion and experience. Mana Modular was designed to enable you to build your unique setup, shape your own configuration and to grow and change with your needs. These days, most music is recorded on small systems and laptops. Those large bespoke mixing consoles are nice, but expensive and require meticulous maintenance.
Mana 510 gives you the best of both worlds: a premium analogue audio console easily scaled to 32 channels and integrated digital control with low upfront and support costs in a single, modern, ergonomic package. Mana configuration options are endless, but it’s only half of the story. We managed to fit a truly remarkable set of features in this compact unit:
– 10 slots housing any 500 series modules
– Dual mix bus design
– 8 channel, field scale-able, analogue desktop audio console
– PPM meter in every channel
– Mastering grade master section
– Easily expandable in multiples of 8 channels
– High quality Penny and Gilles faders
– Up to 16 channel analogue summing
– Channels cascade & channel controls
