AMC Advanced Manual Control Desk (1977 - 1984)
20,30,40-120 max channels 3 presets, 9 groups
First console to perform a dipless crossfade
Multi-preset, multi-group desks are based upon 10-channel 3-preset modules, a choice of Master modules both with a dipless crossfader for 9 submaster groups, and an optional Effects module. These various modules, also including selectable inhibit master/independent grouping, combine to form the most comprehensive manual control system for as few as 20 up to a maximum of 120 control channels.
AMC modules are totally self-contained and linked by a common plug-in ribbon cable. This modularity gives great variety in the layout to suit local circumstances. Free-standing desks of polished wood house 5, 7 or 9 module widths. For more than 80 channels, the desk capacity is extended by a matching double-tier wing. AMC modules can also be built into strong, but lightweight cases especially designed for the rigours of touring.
AMC desks are normally used to control permanently installed Permus dimmer racks, or existing STM or JTM racks, but can also be used with Tempus portable dimmer racks.
