Equip your studio with pro monitoring features for a song.
Manage multiple audio sources and sets of monitor speakers, track using illegally loud headphone amplifiers, and talk back to your drummer—all from your desktop.
Consider your sources.
Switch quickly and easily between up to four audio sources with a selection of input types.
Your personal studio is well equipped with a great interface (from PreSonus, of course!) and a CD player with an S/PDIF digital output. Perhaps you also need to listen to audio from a third source, such as a tape deck, or you want to be able to audition two different stereo mixes from the interface. The Monitor Station V2 provides a convenient desktop control center where you can switch between these sources without compromising the sound quality.
Switch between two pairs of balanced ¼” TRS and a third input channel that can be fed from an S/PDIF digital input (44.1, 48, 88.2, and 96 kHz), one pair of unbalanced RCA Aux inputs with gain control, and a 1/8” TRS unbalanced input that is summed with the RCA Aux inputs. A button switches between the analog Aux and digital S/PDIF inputs.
The Monitor Station allows each of the stereo inputs (TRS1, TRS2, aux) to be routed to one of two audio paths: Main and Cue. You also can route two separate signals (Main and Cue) to each of the four headphone amplifiers, which we’ll discuss shortly.
For example, send a mix with a click track to the TRS 2 input while sending the main mix to TRS 1; you can then enable the headphone amplifiers to carry either the cue or the main mix. The main audio path always feeds what you will hear in the control room.
Manage Your Destinations.
Audition your music with your choice of three stereo pairs of speaker outputs, each with separate level control. Four screaming-loud headphone outs and a talkback mic ensure your musicians hear every note—and your instructions—clearly.
Monitor Station - desktop studio control center. Desktop Monitor Controller with Input and Output Routing, 4 Headphone Outs with Individual Levels, Source Selection, S/PDIF Digital Input, and Talkback Mic - Black.
Master your monitors like the pros with the PreSonus Monitor Station V2. You get control of speaker selection, main and cue output sources, and a reliable central level meter you can easily calibrate to suit your studio. You can switch between three sets of speaker outputs with individual level control to audition mixes. The V2's four headphone outputs with level control let you route cue mixes to tracking musicians while you monitor the main mix in your control room speakers. With an updated workflow and bright LED lighting, PreSonus made the Monitor Station V2 a value packed essential for your studio.
Your small monitors and your large monitors—say, a pair of Eris E5s and a set of Sceptre S8s—sound great but they’re constructed differently, and each reveals things the other doesn’t. That’s why you have both. And you have a beloved vintage set of monitors that you’ll never surrender. But if you have to manually repatch the three sets of monitors one more time, you’re going to freak out and dummy-slap an alligator. (We strongly urge you not to do that.)
No worries! With Monitor Station V2, you can switch between the three sets of monitors instantly! Not only that, you can set each set of speakers’ level individually so that when you switch between speakers, your monitoring level stays the same.
All speakers can be simultaneously available, or just one pair at a time, or you can choose between speakers A and B, with speaker output C remaining active to feed a subwoofer.
Your musicians need to hear clearly every bit as much as you do. That’s why the Monitor Station V2 offers four ¼” TRS stereo headphone outputs driven by amplifiers so loud they ought to be illegal. Unless they’re stone deaf, your musicians will hear themselves! Each headphone out has a Main/Cue source selector, and individual output-level control. That’s the equivalent of a built-in HP4 headphone system!
And with the Monitor Station V2’s built-in, electret-condenser Talkback mic with level control, you can communicate with the talent over their headphones, no problem. A flaming red Talk button activates the mic and automatically attenuates the cue signal based on the dim level.
