DMP81

8-Channel Digital Auto Mixer

THE ‘PLUG-IN-AND-GO’ AUTOMATIC MIXER

Designed uniquely for rack-mount required sound reinforcement scenarios, Asystems DMP81 automatic mixer combines intuitive operation interface with state-of-art signal processing technology. Asystems DMP81 features 8 mic/line inputs via balanced Euroblock jacks. It also features 8 1/4” TRS insert jacks for injecting external devices to the system. All eight Euroblock input connectors provide independent +48V phantom power for condenser microphones and all eight 1/4” TRS insert jacks can directly route incoming signal to other sound processing devices or be used as individual inputs or outputs. Every channel is equipped with adjustable low- and high-pass filters. The on-board adaptive threshold distinguishes fluctuating audio signal from background noise and continuously adjust the audio signal to be louder than background noise. Asystems DMP81 also provides a 1/4” headphone output jack, an AUX input jack (both are with level control knob), and LED indicators, offering intuitive control that caters a wide-range of system setups.

DMP801-1
Separate On-board HPF (high pass filter) and LPF (low pass filter) per channel

The Asystems DMP81 Automatic Mixer features a user-adjustable low-cut filter on every available input channel. This allows for the removal of low-frequency rumble and noise, and helps to brighten voices. Also included on each channel is an adjustable high shelf, able to soften overly harsh high-frequency sounds or brighten otherwise dull audio.

DMP801-3
Eight balanced mic/line input channels (Euroblock connector)

The DMP81 features 8 professional standard 3-pin Euroblock connectors. Each features an indescribably low-noise pre-amplifier making it ideal for not only line-level inputs, but microphones as well. Due to the flexible nature of Euroblock inputs, they can be wired to almost any professional audio product – mixers, equalizers, samplers, sequences, etc – but the real fun in this device lies in its fantastic auto-mixing capabilities making it perfect for high quality microphones and wireless microphone systems.

DMP801-4
Eight ¼” unbalanced Insert jacks

While the DMP81 features a plethora of signal processors, it also features insert jacks on each and every input connector. These allow input signals to be sent directly to external devices, only to be returned. Such devices could include compressors, limiters, equalizers, or even additional mixers. Insert points require use of a y-cable, able to send and receive unbalanced signals from external devices.

¼” TRS headphone connector with output level control

Monitoring your audio is of utmost importance, particularly when you’re in control of that audio! The Asystems team have incorporated a stereo headphone output to the front-panel of the DMP81 to ensure you can monitor the audio live. In addition to this, an auxiliary jack was included to enable the DMP81 to send the signal out to other devices for side-fill or more comprehensive monitoring.

Front Panel

The thin, attractive front panel of the DMP81 is perhaps the most ‘plug-and-play’ automixer you’ll find. It features eight bi-color input LEDS, each paired with an individual rotary control. The Master SG Output LED will light up green when a signal is present, and turn red when the signal clips. AUX and PHONES outputs are included for auxiliary output and use with headphones, respectively. Each of these has their own individual control, as does the Master mix (which, incidentally, also features its own limiter LED). The power LED will light up when the unit is activated. Integrated rack ears make the 1U DMP81 readily rack-mountable.
