“This is a very well-conceived and highly specified monitor controller, with an excellent range of features and facilities, and I have no qualms at all about recommending the Nero for either project or professional applications. …All in all, this is a versatile monitor controller with all the key features in place and plenty of useful configurability. …The provision of four independent headphone outputs, with a talkback facility,is unusual and makes this monitor controller ideal for applications working with several musicians at the same time in a small project studio, too. …The Nero is a very welcome addition to the array of very decent monitor controllers now on the market.” – Hugh Robjohns, Sound On Sound
Desktop Monitor Controller
Building on over 20 years of expertise in analogue console heritage, Nero has been designed to give you powerful control over your monitoring. Featuring a comprehensive range of I/O, console style monitor control, Precision Matched Attenuation Technology and more… Nero will quickly become the core of your studio.
The Art Of Control – Centralise, Customise, Control
As your studio grows it becomes harder to control. Nero enables you to centralise, connect and control all your monitoring needs from your desktop using Nero’s array of stereo inputs.
Reference your mixes on up to three sets of speakers, independently set and match volume for all speakers and audition and assign your sub to any monitor path. Nero also provides one dedicated monitor grade headphone amp and three foldback grade headphone amps, making sure you’re ready to take on the loudest of sessions with crystal clear headphone mixes.
Easily assign a sub to activate when switching to a monitor path of choice but maintain the ability to switch it on and off without losing your saved preset. Nero also lets you audition the sub on any alternative set of speakers without forcing you to assign it permanently.
Smart Touchpoints enable you to customise your workflow on the fly. Easily route and configure Nero’s outputs and monitor controls to create monitoring combinations that suit your needs. Simply hold down a Smart Touchpoint to put it into setup mode, select your routing options and press it again to save.
Precision Matched Stereo Volume Control
Nero perfectly matches the volume of the left and right channels of your stereo signal using Audient’s custom Precision Matched Attenuation Technology. Unlike other monitor controllers, this prevents any deviation in volume between your left and right monitors or unbalancing of your stereo image, enabling you to monitor accurately and mix with confidence.
