The channel section of the frame's connector panel has 5 XLR connectors and 2 TRS connectors. All inputs and outputs are balanced. A female xlr connector is used for the input of the mic pre. The split outputs are available on 2 two separate male xlr's. These three connectors have separate ground lift switches.
The balanced insert point is available on separate 1/4" TRS connectors, brand Neutrik, for insert input and output. Input and output are half normalized.
Two xlr connectos are used for the record output and the monitor input.
Two 25-pin D-Sub connectors allow acces to the couple port of the TM300 live recording system. Any number of frames can be coupled with special docking cables, that are available as accessories. The connections are made in daisy chain mode. If a particular frame is used as 'master' oder 'slave' depends on the installed version of the master module. See the 'master modules' page for details. The pinning of these connectors is fully compatible with the couple ports of the ToolMix and ToolMst devices.
Integration into the ToolMix System
Any ToolMix summing mixer can be used to add more input channels to a TM300 live recording system as well as FR300 frames can also be used to add recording features to an existing summing mixer system.
The ToolMst master and monitor unit can also be used to add a versatile master section and extensive control room and playback/talkback features.
