The M4-IP microphone processor is equipped with four matched Super-Quiet (SQ) microphone preamplifiers featuring extremely low noise floor, very wide dynamic range, faithfully accurate transient response, and ruler flat frequency response. Operating in harmony with high quality 24-bit A/D converters and a 96kHz base sample rate, the M4-IP adds absolutely no undesired coloration to the signal and faithfully preserves the sound of any microphone and talent combination. It also features a four-section equalizer with high and low shelving EQ and two bands of fully parametric EQ, high and low pass filters, and de-esser and expander functions. The signal path of the M4-IP includes four completely independent channels of Wheatstone?s smooth-sounding Vorsis dynamics processing. Adjustable from anywhere on your network the M4-IP offers the security of password protected TCP/IP-based remote control and no front panel controls.
Based on great-sounding designs built for Wheatstone?s high performance professional audio applications, the M4-IP?s equalization section operates predictably and adds no noise, ringing, phasiness or other undesirable coloration to the sound.
Wheatstone-designed Dynamics Processing tools
A high performance and fully adjustable downward expander, de-esser, and smooth sounding broadband compressor and selectable low distortion final Lookahead limiter round out the M4-IP to create powerful and authoritative presence to production or on-air microphones.
A variety of ready-to-use factory processing presets are provided, carefully tailored for different processing goals and formats. You can select a factory preset, confident that it will sound great just as it is. Or use a factory preset as a starting point and create a custom sound for each announcer, then save the new settings as a personalized user preset. In a facility with multiple microphone processors, presets saved in one unit can be easily copied to the others.
Wheatstone Talent Control Interface
The Wheatstone Talent Control Interface software can reside on an air studio/control room PC and gives talent the ability to recall presets from any Vorsis microphone processor without allowing processing adjustments. All parameters of the M4-IP are controlled using the included Windows-based GUI. Voice talent can activate his or her own personal sound at the press of a button using the Talent Control Interface, a special GUI designed for preset recall only.
