Smart Research DI System

Smart Research DI System Designed to solve many instrument recording and D.i problems. For instance, one guitar feeding down long cables to 3 amps in a different area, without hums or change of tone. Includes: Balanced line driver for long cables; speaker level D.i input, and one unity gain Di Box/Splitter for two D.i or Amp feeds. Conceived at Real World Studios, to solve the problem of a guitarist wanting to play in the control room and have amplifiers set up in a live room sometimes several hundred feet away. Prototypes were also used at Virgin/ EMI Townhouse and Manor studios. Since then producers and artists such as Tom Lord Alge, Peter Gabriel, Paul Weller, and Tears for Fears have bought systems. Four systems were used to cure problems for Peter Gabriel's live show, where two stages had to be inter -connected with 300 feet of cable carrying guitar signals from radios to effects pedals on both stages and back to amps on the main stage without degradation, (allowing each stage to be patched independently).

Description

The system comprises a TRANSMIT box and RECEIVE box. The TRANSMIT box has a high impedance input and line driver, which will drive long cables to the RECEIVE box input, which feeds the Di/splitter giving two isolated outputs.(In the Deluxe version, there are two Di/splitters in both the TRANSMIT and RECEIVE boxes, giving 8 isolated outputs) In addition, the RECEIVE unit has a speaker simulator input, so you can plug the speaker output of an amp in for 'dirty' Di sounds with or without a speaker connected. All the Di/splitters on both boxes have break jack inputs and can be used as separate DI's if desired, as well as earth lift switches to stop hum problems. This means there are a total of 8 outputs with the Deluxe version, (or 2 on the normal system); a line driver and receiver; and a speaker simulator.

Di System Re-Amp cable
Used to send a recorded signal back through a amp, pre-amp, or effects pedals for further treatment. XLRF input to standard mono jack, incorporating a balanced to unbalanced 26dB pad. Can be used to feed the D.i System 'Instrument' input for distribution to several devices; or one isolated output to an amp or pedal if the system is being used at line level.

Smart Research C1t is the modified version of the venerable C1 you can find in most modern UK and West Coast recording studios. The C1t is upgraded with the following new features:

C1 Sidechain Modifications
These mods add a three position sidechain high pass filter switch to each channel, and a stereo, unbalanced external sidechain input connector on the rear panel. Using the switches to roll off low frequency signals feeding the sidechain can reduce compression slightly at low frequencies, but without effecting frequency response of the audio signal path. The external inputs can be used for various effects such as 'ducking' from a vocal or the overlap of 'a bass and a kick ... etc.

High Pass Filter switches
The upper toggle switch is for the left channel, and the lower switch for the right. The center position is off (no filter): up is 75Hz, or down is 150Hz high pass. The filters either work on the normal (internal) sidechain signal, or on an external signal if fed into the external jack input.

External Input
Added to rear panel. The stereo input connector is normalled to break the internal sidechain source when a jack is inserted.

Smart Research C2B offers an additional parallel compression stage to the standard C2, or a Blend function to the famous C2 VCA compressor by Alan Smart. The pot is located on the left of the front panel. The unit houses two independent mono compressors, in stereo mode, the left channel controls adjust the settings of both channels, so the right channel controls are no longer used, offering a real stereo operation. The C2M version has a set of controls and two audio channels for stereo use, while the C2R is a two-channel extension allows you to build a system with up to 8 channels controlled from a single C2 or C2M.

The Smart Research C2 compressor houses two independant mono compressors, or in STEREO mode, the left-hand controls operate both audio channels, with the right-hand controls not used, giving true Stereo operation. The C2M version has one set of controls and two audio channels for Stereo use, whilst the C2R is a dual channel remote expander for building up to 8 channel systems controlled from one C2M or C2.

The characteristic sound of this unit arises mostly from the fast response at the onset of compression, which when delayed to occur around the mid range attack settings (after 0.3 to 3 milliseconds) results in a window through which transients can still pass. When used accross a mix, or with any dynamic programme, this has the effect of adding 'punch', as the sidechain 'breathes' around these transients, while still controlling overall levels. CRUSH mode has been developed as an extension of this 'musicality', adding to and accentuating the factors involved in producing the character of the unit. CRUSH may sound surprising to those interested in more gentle applications, being capable of exaggerated compression effects, but in conjunction with the fast limit settings also introduced with this unit, it allows the C2 to be used for a much wider range of applications than the C1.

Smart Research C1LA is a stereo compressor/limiter, released to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the original C1 Stereo/Dual Mono unit, and the 50th anniversary of North American distributor, Sunset Sound. It is a versatile unit, housed in a two-module wide 500-series format, with three main modes of operation offering a range of possibilities. It can be used for all stereo or single channel signal applications: as a main mix bus compressor; for sub-mixes; or for tracking either mono or stereo sources.

For 25 years Smart Research compressors have been used across many mixes: with artists as diverse as the Rolling Stones to the Three Tenors. The C1LA shares this history by including the same electronics and settings as the original C1, but with several new features.
