The Lawo mc²36 xp desk is physically identical to the mc²36 MkII, but without on-board processing. The mc²36 xp supports up to 256 DSP channels and offers Lawo’s acclaimed audio quality, and IP network and processing redundancy. True to its “xp” moniker, the console requires external processing. In combination with the Pooling 8 license, it can share the DSP heft of one A__UHD Core with up to seven other virtual or physical console surfaces for cost-effective premium audio processing. Available with 16, 32 and 48 faders in a sleek, ergonomic footprint, the mc²36 xp comes equipped with the same pro-grade controls and touchscreens as its bigger brothers, the mc²56 and mc²96. Its on-board I/O capability is identical to the inputs and outputs offered by its all-in-one mc² 36 console sister: 16 Lawo-grade MIC/Line inputs, 16 Line outputs, eight AES inputs and outputs, eight GPI/Os, plus a local MADI port (SFP). The mc²36 xp supports 48kHz and 96kHz operation, state-of-the-art immersive audio mixing and all relevant IP standards (ST2110, AES67/RAVENNA, ST2022-7).
