LAWO mc²36 THE ALL-IN-ONE PRODUCTION CONSOLE
Model: mc²36 THE ALL-IN-ONE PRODUCTION CONSOLE
With experience gathered over more than 40 years, Lawo is distinguished by its engineering and manufacturing of most reliable and most advanced audio mixing consoles available. Originally developed for broadcast environments with zero tolerance for failure, Lawo consoles are also widely chosen for their audio quality in theater, studio and live performance applications.
Easy – versatile – reliable. The mc²36 is the German company’s first all-in-one console, designed for maximum ease-of-use and “unbelievable” value-for-money, to make the benefit of this expertise available for an even broader group of users. The compact size, in-built DSP and I/0 make the console equally perfect for permanent installations with limited space and rental companies’ transportation demands.
CAPABLE AND ADAPTABLE
Lawo quality – audio uncompromised
Like all Lawo consoles, the mc²36 is a precision tool designed to give uncompromised audio quality and maximum reliability. Beyond the feature set of a fully equipped audio console, the
mc²36 provides additional Lawo-specific features that improve the workflows and quality of any broadcast, theater production or live performance.
Lawo openness – future-proof by definition
While the mc²36 comes fully prepared for stand-alone operation, it is also equipped for expansion and networking with other mc²36/56/66 consoles or Lawo Nova audio routers.
A MADI tie-line port and three RAVENNA/AES67 Audio-over-IP ports provide future-proof connectivity for additional I/0 devices and networking.
Lawo flexibility – truly universal
And even though the mc²36 is ready-to-go, it is not limited to a fixed configuration. Any aspect of the console can be adapted to meet specific users’ needs. All production data can be easily saved on a USB-stick and transferred to another console – particularly convenient for rental applications.
UNBELIEVABLE EASE OF USE
A perfect symphony of hardware & software controls
The Lawo mc²36 was designed as a truly universal console with focus on its ease-of-use. The pleasing console geometry combines with perfectly integrated displays and controls, to
provide an ideal tool for various applications. The 21.5” full HD touch-screens work hand-in-hand with the touch-sensitive color-illuminated rotary encoders. E.g. the equalizer window will automatically pop-up when touching the equalizer encoders – and after adjusting the parameters the auto-close function will close the window without additional user action to restore the full overview.
The physical user interface
The Lawo mc²36 has a newly designed console Iayout. While looking familiar to existing mc² users, the console is now even more intuitive to novice users. lts new central user section is
extremely compact and combines easy access to all parameters with an enhanced overview.
The touch-screen user interface
Super-bright 21.5” HD touch-screens provide excellent overview of all aspects of the console, and allow immediate operation via touch-optimized dialog windows. For input patching, it is only necessary to touch the input section of the desired fader strip and select the source directly on the screen. Tasks such as VCA allocation, bus or aux assignments and mix-minus configurations are also performed intuitively via the touch-screen. Again, the console can be readily adapted to user’s requirements by adjusting the channel display accordingly – just choose and display those parameters that are important and hide any unnecessary or distracting elements. For example, you could de-select the track buses or show 16 instead of eight aux buses. The metering automatically scales to the maximum available space, showing all fader Ievels permanently on the HD display. ln addition, multi-row metering allows for permanent metering of signals from other layers or banks.
A FEATURE RICH ENVIRONMENT
The mc²36 is a universal console, providing a comprehensive feature set for broadcast, theater, house of worship, live and install applications. To make this possible, Lawo has optimized its features to provide benefits not only for one application, but for all. The one common factor is that everything is optimized for fast-paced operation in demanding environments.
Ready for the road
With its all-in-one approach, the compact mc²36 is especially attractive for mobile productions and rental companies: Only one flightcase is required for console, DSP core and I/0. ln addition to the German quality chassis and electronics, the mc² 36 can be ordered in a heavy-duty flightcase version ready for the road. But its not just the hardware factors that make the mc²36 a perfect choice for rental companies – features like saving and loading configurations and show files easily via USB sticks are especially valuable in the rental and touring business, where several consoles and users might be involved.
Lawo sound has never been this affordable
Lawo consoles have been synonymous with excellence in audio quality for more than 40 years – and the mc²36 is no exception. From input to output, from its microphone preamps to its DSP processing algorithms, this console is a precision tool for any audio production, providing a Ievel of sound quality never before achieved in this price segment.
The Lawo mc²36 features integrated input and output connectivity to meet for a broad range of broadcast and install applications, as well as FOH and monitoring. The 32 Lawo microphone preamps are identical with those found on Lawo’s renowned 941/55 microphone card for DALLIS systems, providing an extremely linear frequency response of only 0.03dB between 20Hz and 20kHz and an unbelievably low THD of 0.0006%.
