TOA Electronics M-1264 is a true stereo, matrix
mixer only 2 rack spaces high, that is economical and simple to operate
yet has a great deal of versatility. Its many unique features and
functions solve some long-standing design problems in a variety of
commercial systems that require mixing and matrixing a combination of
mono and ever increasing number of stereo audio sources to single and
multiple outputs. Sometimes stereo sources need to be summed to mono and
mono sources fed to L/R outputs. These sources may need to feed
separately controlled, multiple outputs, some stereo and some mono, that
often require different combinations or selections of the inputs. The
M-1264 can handle all of this and more. The companion M-1212E, also 2
rack spaces, is a simplified version of the M-1264, intended as an
expander for the M-1264, but it can also be used as a stand alone,
matrix mixer. Both are backed by TOA Electronics long tradition of reliability and
M-1264, in its 2 rack spaces, can be easily set up to function as
anything from a single mono or stereo mixer to up to FIVE independent
mono mixers (with a sixth somewhat dependent mixer). For example, in a
health club the M-1264 can simultaneously and separately control: stereo
disco in the aerobics room, pop music in the weight room, classical in
the pool and the easy listening station in the locker rooms and
reception, plus selective paging to all areas, including an emergency
page mic from each location back to a speaker in the reception desk.
This kind of multi-tasking capability,
in a single unit, is perfect for a variety of systems including
boardrooms, conference rooms, discos, health clubs, restaurants,
offices, background music systems, music clubs, and hotel systems. For
example it is a great mixer for multi-media portable systems or as an
outboard mixer for touring systems, taking up only one input on the main
console for 4 stereo sources plus six additional mic inputs. In hohel
systems, it can function as an economical, manually controlled ballroom
combiner for up to four rooms. It is ideal for multi-zone background
music/paging systems. You can even use it to set up four zones of
mix-minus-one microphone mixing, with program and selected mic inputs to
all zones, plus a fifth output with a sum of all the inputs.
The M-1264 has 5 sets of outputs, each
with their own level control: Stereo main, stereo Group, mono Aux,
stereo Cue/ Monitor, and a Sum output (provides a mono mix of the main
Stereo output). The Stereo and Group, while still providing their own
output signals, can be alternately assigned to each other as a sub-group
using a rear panel switch. The Cue/Monitor output can be used for
monitoring the Stereo output or it can function as an independent mixer
using the cue bus, or it can be used as a L/R mono Cue to pre-listen to
any combination of inputs-a must for discos or live mixing.
The M-1264 has 11 sets of inputs: 6
electronically balanced, mono Mic/Line inputs, 4 unbalanced, stereo/mono
Line inputs and a stereo/mono “sub” line input that feeds the Stereo
mixing bus. Each of the first 10 inputs is controlled by a single front
panel knob. The Mic/Line (using a Left/Center/Right switch) and Line
inputs are always assigned to either the Group or Stereo outputs and can
be independently assigned to the Aux and Cue outputs. All inputs have an
On/Off switch that shuts off the signal to the Stereo and Aux outputs
but not the signal assigned to the Cue output. A bonus feature is that a
mono source plugged into only the right channel of any stereo input is
automatically fed to the left input as well.
Each Mic/Line input has a built in
automatic compressor with a front panel indicator that activates about
3dB below internal clipping. This not only serves as an excessive signal
indicator but can virtually eliminate input and output overloads. These
inputs also feature switchable phantom power and a switchable high pass
filter in microphone mode to reduce directional microphone proximity
effects. Optional input transformers are available if needed for long
wire runs or ground isolation.
