Glensound Dark8Mair 8x mic input to dante


Glensound Dark8Mair 8x mic/channel input to Dante/AES67

Eight Audio Inputs
The DARK8MAI MKII has 8 audio inputs. Each input is on its own Neutrik 3 pin XLR socket and each input can be set to accept line or mic level inputs. Clever internal circuitry even changes the input impedance to correctly match the input type.

Low Noise Mic Amps
The very best low noise & distortion microphone amplifiers chipsets by Profusion are used in our very carefully designed pre-amp. The design of the pre-amp took our Chief Design Engineer over 3 months to develop and tailor to provide crystal clear sound unaltered by unwanted characteristics.

Mic/Line/Phantom Power
Each of the eight inputs can be individually switched to accept either a mic or line level input.  The mic input can also have 48 Volt phantom power turned on/ off. Input selection and phantom power settings are enabled on the Windows 10 app.

High Quality Analogue To Digital Converters
As well as the best microphone amplifiers the very best widest range analogue to digital converters (ADC) currently available are used to make sure the digital audio on your network is as good as it possibly can be. The filter settings of the ADC can even be changed via the app.

Windows 10 App For Remote Control
GlenController, our free Windows 10 app, provides full remote control of the DARK8MAI MKII. It allows switching of input types, gain control, level monitoring and more.

Network Interface
There are 4 network interfaces on the DARK8MAI MKII. There are 2 x Neutrik Ethercon (RJ45) connectors and there are also 2 x SFP slots for customers to fit their own preferred fibre interfaces.

Redundant Network Interface
When using the Dante protocol it is possible to set the DARK8MAI MKII to have a fully redundant network interface whereby a completely glitch free automatic redundant audio network link is provided across 2 of the network interfaces.

Power
DARK8MAI MKII can be powered from independent sources to provide a redundant power option. Each copper RJ45 network socket can accept PoE (this means that just 1 cable can carry power and audio data to/ from the unit). A DC input is also provided for powering the unit from an external DC source if no PoE is available.

Network Remote Control
GlenController is a Windows 10 PC application, and it can be downloaded for free from our website .  When launched, GlenController scans the network for all connected DARK8MAIRs which can be selected from the left hand side of the app.

Remote Control Of Mic Gain Levels
There are settings to select mic, mic +48v, or line inputs.  A rotary control then adjusts the gain level up and down. This all operates in real time. The microphone input amplifier switches its gain in 3dB steps.

Redundant Remote Control
The App connects to the DARK8MAIR via the same network as the Dante audio circuits and provides a reliable redundant control system via both the primary and secondary network interfaces, meaning that even if one of the 2 networks were to become disconnected the remote control would continue to work.

Multiple Apps
One App can connect to multiple DARK8MAIRs and multiple Apps running on different PCs can connect to a single DARK8MAIR. The App provides the ability to lock out other users from controlling a DARK8MAIR and this facility can be password protected, meaning only authorised personnel can change the settings on a unit.

Saving Presets
Presets can easily be saved and recalled when required.
