SPL MTC 2381

Monitor & Talkback ControllerThe Monitor & Talkback Controller MTC 2381 combines volume control, source management and speaker management for stereo monitoring with comfortable talkback and cue functions. Thus it is the ideal DAW complement in all areas of sound processing and reproduction:

  • Stereo productions / recording studio
  • Film and video post-production
  • Video & computer game production
  • Audiovisual media / multimedia production

With the MTC 2381, any DAW-based studio can be extended independent of the system by an indispensable stereo monitoring function. As an individual mixture of music signal and mix signal, a latency-free cue mix can be created for the musician. A built-in electret microphone with omnidirectional characteristics is available for talkback communication in order to be able to speak from a greater distance. The Talkback function can be remote controlled via a foot switch connection.

  • Completely analog volume control without VCAs, DACs, etc.
  • 6 Stereo inputs (four balanced and two unbalanced sources)
  • Balanced XLR outputs for three pairs of speakers
  • Slave output
  • Talkback: built-in microphone, separate output and input for footswitch
  • Cue-Mix: separate output, musician level, mix level and volume control
  • Dimensions (HxWxD): 91 x 272 x 220 mm
  • Weight: 2.3 kg

All Good! But the -20dB reduce when talkback is ON is too much for me, sometimes it's hard too have both control room and recording room clear hear each other(because the singer's voice has a -20dB dim when we are in talkback mode)

Eins steht definitiv fest. Der MTC2381 Monitorcontroller ist ein wahrer Hingucker! Was mir Persönlich nicht so gefällt ist die Haptik. Das Teil fühlt sich etwas "billig" an, wackelige Potis, unschöne Plastikbuchsen...bei knapp 700€ wäre rein bissel mehr Anfassqualität sicher nicht zu viel verlangt gewesen.

avis du SPL MTC 2381
SergeB, 25.05.2011
je ne connaissais pas le matériel spl et j'avoue que ce contrôleur de monitoring m'a impressionné par sa qualité de fabrication
il sonne vraiment bien, et je n'ai eu aucun problème depuis que je l'ai acheté (il y a deux ans).
les entrées et les sorties sont complètes (on peux avoir jusqu'à trois type de monitor différent) le bouton de volume général est cranté ainsi que les autres potentiomètres , précis et confortable, il rempli parfaitement son rôle

Sehr durchdacht
Colze, 09.12.2009
Der MTC 2381 ist vermutlich einer der teuersten Abhörcontroller, aber sicher auch einer der besten. Man mag sich fragen, wieso man überhaupt so viel Geld für die Regelung der Abhörlautstärke ausgeben soll, wo doch die meisten Audio-Interfaces schon über einen regelbaren Abhörausgang verfügen. Aber: es lohnt sich in diesem Fall. Der MTC bietet ja noch eine komplette Abhörsteuerung für bis zu vier Stereo Quellen zusätzlich zum Summenausgang der DAW, sowie einen 'Musician'-Eingang, der gegebenenfalls zur Beimischung des Musikersignals für dessen Kopfhörermischung genutzt werden kann. Diese wird dann über den getrennt regelbaren 'Cue-Mix'-Ausgang ausgegeben. Es lassen sich bis zu drei Abhörlautsprecherpaare betreiben, sowohl alternativ als auch gleichzeitig. Das eingebaute Talkback-Mikrofon, die Schalter für Dim, Mono, und den zuschaltbaren Köpfhörer-Ausgang (gedacht zum Abhören in der Regie) machen den MTC zum vollwertigen Ersatz der Abhörsteuerung eines gut ausgestatteten Mischpultes.

Die Kopfhörermischung für den Musiker wird über den 'Cue-Mix'-Ausgang getrennt ausgegeben, wobei sich hier eine Schwachstelle des MTC offenbart: bei Betätigung des Talkback-Schalters knackt es im 'Cue-Mix'-Weg hin und wieder doch merklich. Dies scheint ein elektrisches Problem zu sein, nicht etwa mechanisch, da die Verwendung eines Fusschalters keine Abhilfe brachte. Ich habe aber gehört, dass SPL dieses Problem kennt, und möglicherweise mittlerweile Abhilfe geschaffen hat. Etwas unschön ist ausserdem, dass der Regler für die Control-Room-Lautstärke eine deutliche Rasterung aufweist. In der Praxis hat mich dieser kleine Schönheitsfehler allerdings nie gestört. Das Gerät ist insgesamt sehr hochwertig verarbeitet, wie man es von den jüngeren SPL-Produkten kennt, und in der Konzeption wirklich durchdacht. Es stehen noch ein 'Slave-Out' etwa für den Anschluss externer Pegel-Anzeigen, ein zusätzlicher Ausgang für das reine Talkback-Signal und ein Anschluss für handelsübliche Fusschalter zur Betätigung der Talkback-Funktion zur Verfügung.

Insgesamt ein Kauf, den ich nicht bereut habe.
