A-Designs Audio is proud to introduce the ATTY2'D (pronounced 'attitude'), a multi-channel passive line level controller that is the big brother of the successful ATTY stereo passive line level controller introduced in 2004.
Housed in a 1U rack-mountable chassis, the ATTY2'D features two stereo and two mono channels--all four sporting their own individual mute switches and large aluminum cast rotary level controls. A single master mute switch is also located in the center of the front panel for fast termination of audio signal to all channels.
The ATTY2'D can allow engineers to gain control of their classic preamplifiers with no output attenuation by padding the line level signal to their AD converters without clipping. At the same time, it allows preamplifiers to be pushed harder for a completely different audio effect in the signal path.
As another example, the demand for active monitors coupled with today's audio software can certainly create an issue when the computer crashes and the active monitors are set to 11. The ATTY2'D provides a solution by using the muting setup for separate channels or the master mute for all channels when working with more than one pair of active monitors or in 5.1 surround sound. And using the ATTY2'D for active speaker control is perfectly seamless; the unit is 100 percent passive, therefore no unwanted color/electronic signals are added to the audio path ensuring the purest signal possible.
Currently shipping, the ATTY2'D features a US list price of $585.00.
