M-5000 on September 6, 2015 | Marketing Team O.H.R.C.A Live Mixing ConsoleIn a rapidly changing world, the ability to adapt is needed to excelOHRCA (pronounced “or-ca”) brings adaptability to the world of live audio mixing. It conforms to the needs of both the application and the operator by delivering 128 freely definable audio paths, expandable protocols, multi-format I/O choices, and flexible user interface and workflow - all delivered at a pristine 24-bit / 96kHz sound quality.OpenHigh ResolutionConfigurable ArchitectureConfigurable Architecture128 freely definable audio paths unlock a new realm of flexibilityThe Roland M-5000 console's internal mix architecture is not fixed and can be freely defined within a range of up to 128 input/output channels/busses. This allows you to essentially "build" a console structure based on the immediate needs of the application. This makes for a console that accommodates high levels of flexibility for precise response to dynamically changing applications and venues.ExtensibilityAdaptable to numerous audio networks and I/O needsExpansion options including Dante, MADI, Waves SoundGrid, REAC, XI-SDI, XI- SFP and XI-DVI open the door to endless configurations, applications and emerging standards. Card Options ->ExtensibilityInput and output options galoreUp to 300 inputs and 296 outputs (and more at 48kHz) are managed in separate patchbays. Any input can be patched to any or multiple outputs, including control* of gain and phantom power, without having to be patched through a mixing channel. OHRCA makes it possible to control an enormous number of input and output channels across multiple protocols and formats.(* REAC only)High ResolutionSound quality maintaining all the fidelity of the original sourceIt starts with a high sampling rate of 96kHz. The discrete circuitry was precisely designed with careful component selection and circuit architecture, separation of analog and digital sound modules, 72-bit linear summing circuit, and more.Flexible WorkflowA user interface with the ability to adapt to the preferences of the engineerThe concept behind the interface is "freedom” - accommodating the individual workflow of the engineer to the greatest extent possible.Flexible WorkflowOperation centered on a 12” touch screenFlat design and vector graphics for clear and vivid display of information. The 16 encoders feature rings whose colors change according to their assigned functions to match on-screen parameters. The "touch and turn" mechanism of touching the desired parameter and turning the selected knob achieves fast, intuitive operation.Flexible WorkflowM-5000: 28 faders in 4 banks - M-5000C: 20 faders in 3 banksEach of the eight-fader bank sections is equipped with an Isolate function that enables scrolling and layer switching independently or in tandem. Different elements can be assigned to each bank, such as mix channels to one fader section and DCAs to a second fader section. “Jump” to often-used fader scrolling positions using Anchor points. Assign critical channels to the four assignable fixed faders.Flexible WorkflowUser assignable controls and bright, informative displaysThe right side of the surface features an assignable section that lets the user assign key functions for quick access. Bright, full-color OEL displays offer excellent visibility in any light.Remote ControlFlexible control and extendible screen spaceOperate the console from a computer on a second or third display. The M-5000 GUI allows multiple windows, and features support for high-resolution displays. The dedicated app supports remote control from an iPad and supports Retina displays for crystal clear graphics.Remote I/O ChoicesAn extensive lineup of digital snakes to choose from – all running at 24-bit/96kHz.S-4000S Modular Digital SnakeS-2416Digital SnakeS-1608/S-0816Digital SnakeS-0808Digital SnakeEngineer's MonitorAn ideal solution for monitor positionLearn MoreFor the monitor engineer, the M-5000 offers an Engineering Monitor function that mirrors each musician's M-48 enabling the engineer to hear exactly what the musician is hearing. Connect it to one of the two monitor buses and toggle back and forth between musicians using personal mixers and those using traditional bussing.Multi-Channel Playback and Record48-channels of playback and recording - no repatching requiredWhen inserted inline between the I/O and the console, not only do you get full control of arming tracks, routing, starting, stopping with the Roland R-1000 48-Track Recorder/Player – you get playback for concerts, soundchecks, training – all the through the identical signal chain as your live sources with no patching required - complete with preamp compensation if necessary.
