Audient Introduces Nero Audio Interface

Audient has introduced Nero, an audio interface that enables users to centralize, connect and control all monitoring needs from the desktop.

Audient said Nero allows users to reference mixes on up to three sets of speakers, independently set and match volume for all speakers and audition and assign the sub to any monitor path. Nero also provides one dedicated monitor grade headphone amp and three foldback grade headphone amps.

Nero easily assigns a sub to activate when switching to a monitor path of choice but maintains the ability to switch it on and off without losing the saved preset. Nero also allows users to audition the sub on any alternative set of speakers without forcing the user to assign it permanently.

Smart Touchpoints enable users to customize the workflow on the fly. Easily route and configure Nero’s outputs and monitor controls to create monitoring combinations that suit your needs. Hold down a Smart Touchpoint to put it into setup mode, select your routing options and press it again to save.

Assign the talkback mic to any or all headphone outputs and quickly communicate with others in the recording session. Assign a subwoofer to any or all of three stereo outputs with the ability to still switch on/off and audition without losing the saved routing.

Take control of headphone mixes by assigning any input source to the headphone outputs using the SRC buttons. Easily set any output permanently to mono. Save all settings permanently by holding down any two speaker output buttons.

Nero perfectly matches the volume of the left and right channels of the stereo signal using Audient’s custom Precision Matched Attenuation Technology. Unlike other monitor controllers, this prevents any deviation in volume between the left and right monitors or unbalancing of the stereo image.

Nero features a range of flexible monitor controls including dedicated talkback, cut & dim along with polarity, mono, speaker select and cue mix monitoring. It has four stereo analog sources, two line level inputs, one aux input and optical and coaxial S/PDIF inputs.
