Not wanting to wade in on the ATEM audio debate but just wanting a suggestion on the best bit of kit to handle the audio from and to my 1ME.
I am currently using an 1ME with a Hyperdeck Studio for recording and another for playback. The primary use of the system is for Imag.
For the recording we receive a aux from the PA's sound desk which they also use for their audio recording but we like to monitor the levels and check it with headphones.
We then send a feed from the Hyperdeck for playback back to the sound desk. It is also nice to monitor the levels from that so I can be sure everything is OK at our end without interrupting the sound crew.
Ideally I am looking for ideally a 1U rackmount mixer with level meters and headphone amp that can adjust levels and send the recording feed to a separate output from the playback feed.
It would be nice to have a couple of extra inputs for computer audio as well to send back to the sound desk.
Is there a bit of kit that will do what I need without costing loads and being over complex?
From what I have seen so far the options are either zone mixers which have no monitoring or multi channel mixers that have no zones.
I am currently using the 1ME to embed the audio for the recording Hyperdeck and an SDI>Analog mini converter to de-embed the audio for the playback. If I could free up the mini converter that would be a bonus but happy to purchase an extra one if needed.
Any help would much appreciated.
