    ■ PM5000 Overview (page 10) The names and functions of the various sections of the console are broadly described in the context of the console as a whole. Please read this section before continuing on to the details. This section explains the console’s overall internal signal flow and how it relates to external equipment.

    The basic hardware divisions are “modules.” For example, all of the console’s input modules make up the “input channel section.” Each input channel is made up of an “EQ block,” a “fader block,” and others. In the PM5000 each input channel is made up of two separate hardware components: an “input channel module”...

    In such cases it is useful to provide a center channel, the output level of which will be adjusted to reinforce the stereo image and provide more effective coverage.
  • Page 20: Channel Fader Block

    The channel faders determine the level of the channel signal sent to the console’s master buses, and are of primary importance in setting up the balance between the various channels in the mix. The channel faders can also be assigned to specific VCA and mute groups for group level and mute control.

    The [VCA MUTE] switches function in a slightly different way than the mute master switches. When a [VCA MUTE] switch is engaged the effect is the same as turning that VCA fader all the way down to -∞. The mute master switches, on the other hand, disengage the channel [ON]...

    In the same was as the input channel modules, the only real difference between the stereo aux, G/A, stereo, and mono masters is whether they are mono or stereo. The basic routing is the same for all signals, as summarized in the diagrams below.
  • Page 30: Controls Common To All Masters

    Since the basic signal routing is common to the various master modules, all modules also feature many of the same controls. It is the differences that, in a sense, define the character of each module type. The stereo and mono masters have completely independent sets of controls, while the stereo aux and G/A masters each combine two pairs of channels with two identical sets of controls.

    The stereo master controls on the left side of the module correspond approximately to one half of the controls on a stereo aux module (i.e. the controls for one stereo pair). For maximum convenience in practical applications, however, independent [TB/OSC] switches are provided for the left and right channels so that the talkback or oscillator signal can be applied independently to one channel or the other, or to both if required.
  • Page 37: Matrix Send And Master Out Section

    The matrix send section is located at the top of the console’s master out section. From the hardware standpoint it is a “matrix send block” fed by the outputs of the various master modules, but from an operational perspective it is a separate section to which the signals from the master modules are assigned via their respective [TO MATRIX] switches.
  • Page 38 MONO The level and balance of signals sent from the mono masters (group/ aux, mono) a stereo matrix can be adjusted via the inner and outer controls, respectively. Stereo signals from stereo masters (stereo aux, stereo) sent to a mono matrix are internally mixed to mono at the matrix input and then routed to the appropriate mono matrix bus.

    (ST MATRIX 1 ~ 4) and mono matrices (MATRIX 1 ~ 8). Since the only function of this section is to control output of the signals from each matrix bus its control complement is quite simple, with no visible difference between the stereo and mono matrices (the L and R channels of stereo matrices are controlled simultaneously).

Cue trim controls are provided to compensate for this: the [INPUT CUE TRIM] adjusts the PFL cue signal level while the [VCA CUE TRIM] control adjusts the AFL cue signal level.
  • Page 45 NOT E All active [CUE] switches will be disengaged when switching between the MIX CUE and LAST CUE modes. A neat “trick” to disengage all cues at once, therefore, is to engage and then immediately disengage the [LAST CUE] switch.
  • Page 46: Solo Mode

    In the PM5000 and most other sound-reinforcement consoles, however, “CUE” is a signal sent to the operator’s monitor speakers while “SOLO” is a signal sent to the speakers fed by the console’s master or matrix outs. Since solo monitoring in the PM5000 is handled in essentially the same way as cue monitoring, the term “cue/solo function”...
