Cool Stuff About the IP-12 and IP-16

Modular Architecture

For the IP-12/IP-16, we’ve moved the logic, audio and interface to a single space rack unit we call the IP88CB Console Audio BLADE. This mix engine and I/O unit handles all the interfacing and heavy lifting. It connects to the IP-12/IP-16 control surface via standard Ethernet. The two of them together make an incredibly powerful self-contained console. But there’s more – they enable you to become a part of the WheatNet-IP network (if you have one, of course). This means that with the IP-12/IP-16, you’ve got the first building block to a networked facility or you’ve got another station on your existing network. Either way, the functionality you get with the IP-12/IP-16 is pretty breathtaking.

Modular Construction


We’ve built the IP-12/IP-16 (in New Bern, NC USA, by the way) to be easily accessed by you. No ‘one-surface, gotta take the whole thing apart construction’ here. If you need access to a channel, all it takes is two screws and you’re in.  Makes it a breeze to service or simply swap out a module.

Source Select


Source Select Any input can be called up on any channel on the IP-12/IP-16. This means the feed you’ve got plugged into input 7 on the back of the BLADE (or ANY BLADE) can also show up on channel 2…or any other channel. Same with any input! Not only that, you can assign a backup or different source to the same channel and switch on the fly by using the SOURCE A/B buttons. As if this isn’t cool enough by itself, think about the flexibility if/when you decide to link the IP-12/IP-16 up to a network. Imagine having any source on the network at your fingertips, with no patching.

Mix-Minus / Direct Outputs


Each fader has a dedicated Mix-Minus output (activated by the TB switch) that includes all active faders on its selected source bus, except for itself. These auto generated monaural Mix-Minus signals may be routed to feed telephone hybrids or other devices as required. Alternately, these outputs may be set to provide a separate direct output from that channel only, consisting of the source assigned to that channel. This is very useful for multitrack production work.
