Default MTRX as a Monitor Controller?

Any MTRX owners who can give me advice if this is all possible.



Considering an MTRX to replace my current 5.1 controller. I need to monitor 4 separate 5.1 sources. Right now I have 32 outputs feeding a Dangerous ST/SR which is one of the few monitor controllers which can do this. Considering a future when we upgrade our room to handle Atmos for the Home mixing for streaming services.



With the new monitor controller page in ProTools Control now available. Wondering if I can replace with an MTRX and do it all internally via DAD Man. Instead of assigning to separate hardware outputs then sending to the dangerous, I can assign my DX, MX and FX as well as main mix as different monitor sources via DAD Man. That way I need only have one 8 channel D/A card that feeds my speakers and when time comes to go Atmos add as second D/A card to the MTRX.



Jeff Komar, if you are out there, please chime in. Thanks in advance any advice will be greatly appreciated.

It's kind of one of the main selling points of the MTRX. And it works (a lot of the S6 control surfaces tap into a MTRX for ATMOS and other sound source routing and control.)

Look up DADman. There are a ton of videos already out there.

And yes, the Control App can manage the DADman almost exactly like the S6 control surface (actually in one way better since you can expressly lock the control section to DADman which you can't do on an S6)

Default Re: MTRX as a Monitor Controller?

If you can't tell, I've been using the MTRX/DADman since early 2017. And the Control App on my Dock for monitor control since it was released with Eucon. Love the configurability and control.

(And that's my home system; studio system is 4 x MTRX on 2 systems hooked to an S6 that uses one of the MTRX on the primary system as the monitor control for the S6/room. I even have the stem masters from the secondary recorder piped back to the main MTRX on the primary system for individual control from the S6)
