VectraSonics 2200 Routing Module Overview & Functions

2200 Routing Module Overview:

  1. Rotary fader multi-track monitor: Inline with primary channel design.
  2. Stereo MIX and x8 Group Outputs: Employs fully-balanced summing buses for low noise.
  3. 1 & 2 MONO & ¾ Stereo Aux Sends: Summed per bucket with final high-level bucket sum.
  4. Monitor Fader/Path: Create additional MIX returns, channel postfade aux sends, or mix stem/bounce subgroups when the module is set up in [MIX] mode.
  5. CHAN PATH: Routes to group buses, and TRK MON PATH routes to MIX BUS for [REC] mode.
  6. TRK MON PATH: Routes to group buses, and CHAN PATH routes to MIX BUS for [MIX] mode.
  7. Any module can be switched to be the opposite of the master [REC]/[MIX] mode status.
  8. DIR OUT: can be fitted with any or all of 3 possible amplifier types, below. Multiple amps fitted are selected internally using programming shunts on PIN headers. 

     

    1. 2520 Compatible Block (transformer options: Lundahl, API, Carnhill, Sowter, Cinemag, etc.)
    2. Hybrid Line Receiver IC with discrete transistor output stage
    3. Balanced Output Audio IC (transformer less)
  9. CHAN PATH SOLO: can be AFL or solo-in-place, according to solo master mode selection.
  10. Solo-in-place cut operation is locked out for any module set to [REC] mode status. This logic permits some modules to be set up in mix mode for use as track monitors using solo-in-place, while other modules are set up as record mode channels without concern for record data loss since the record channels are forced to operate in AFL.

2200 Routing Module Functions:

(Fully electrically balanced analog summing buses for low noise and high definition). 

Group output source is based on module mode status:  from the channel for [RECORD] mode, and from the monitor pot / path for [MIX] mode. 

(Permits monitor pots/paths to be used to create additional EFX sends, mix returns, or subgroups via the group outputs from a module that is set up in [MIX] mode.)

Pans across odd-even group assignments when the “IN” sw is pressed.

Enables panning across odd-even group bus assignments, when engaged.

Sourced postfade channel fader, or postfade monitor pot when “MON” sw is pressed.

Moves source for aux send 1 to monitor postfade. (From channel postfade w/ sw up.)

Enables aux send 1 output to bus.

Sourced postfade channel fader, or postfade monitor pot when “MON” sw is pressed.

Moves source for aux send 2 to monitor postfade. (From channel postfade w/ sw up.)

Enables aux send 2 output to bus.

Pans across aux sends 3 & 4 for stereo cue or EFX send (or hard over to use 3 & 4 as mono sends.)

Sourced pre or post channel fader, or pre or post monitor pot when “MON” sw is pressed.

Moves source for aux send 3/4 to monitor. (From channel w/ sw up.)

Moves source for aux send 3/4 to be channel prefade, or monitor prefade, as selected.

Enables aux send 3 & 4 outputs as a pair, to the aux 3/4 buses.

Pans across L & R mix bus outputs (mix output source is based on module mode status, from the channel for [MIX] mode, and from the monitor pot path for [RECORD] mode).

Pushbutton enables mix pan pot, allowing absolute center when pan is disabled.

Enables L & R module mix outputs to master stereo mix bus.

Enables change; direct output (routes channel path postfade to direct out amplifier input.)

Enables change; direct output (routes channel path postfade to direct out amplifier input.)

(Enables alternate uses for monitor path when in mix mode.) Switches the source for the monitor pot & path to be from the channel postfade signal. Used to create trimmable matrix o/p’s for surround, bounce groups, or to create additional channel postfade effects sends, via group bus assignments and outputs.

Enables channel direct output   (routes channel path postfade to direct output amplifier input.)

Mutes the monitor path (for whatever purpose the monitor path is serving.)

AFL solo for whatever signal is being processed thru the monitor pot and path. LED indicates a monitor solo is depressed on this monitor channel.

A yellow LED that indicates the monitor solo is depressed on this module.

(Monitor Path “Fader”.) 

  1. Track monitor fader for inline stereo monitor mix in [RECD] mode.
  2. Fader for additional mix returns, sourced from “MON IN” jacks, and assigned to a pair of group buses, patched back into the final mix sum, via the “mix injection” patch jacks.
  3. In conjunction with the “CH TO MON” switch, as a level trim/aux send control for subgroups or additional aux sends, via group outputs  (uses 2 & 3 for [MIX] mode.)

(Red LED illuminated EAO 19 series switch.) Lit for channel muted condition, including when chan is cut from solo-in-place operation.

(Yellow LED illuminated EAO 19 series switch.)

  1. Lit yellow LED indicates that a channel path solo is engaged on this module.
  2. Channel path solo is AFL or solo-in-place, according to solo master mode selection.
  3. Solo-in-place cut operation is locked out for any module(s) that are set to [RECORD] mode status. A channel solo initiated from any module in [RECORD] mode reverts to AFL solo.
