Handful device for controlling several monitors
Pat WILMART, 14.10.2020
Handful device for controlling several monitors.
Very versatile with 3 IN's and 3 OUT's.
Personally I mainly play with the OUT's since my Mackie 24/8 analog mixer does the routing work for cue monitoring.
Just a warning, make sure your output gain is set to 0 or your monitors to off when switching on the Palmer Monicon because there is a short burst at that time (confirmed to be a normal behaviour by the constructor to Thomann staff).

Big letdown compared to the Monicon
Vince Watson, 29.09.2020
Had high hopes for this, but it's terrible.

The case is loose on the sides, so first impressions were not good.

Now I've been using it for a few weeks, and there is so much noise coming from the inputs, ive had enough...

Poor!

Précisément ce que je cherchais
Knolles, 02.02.2020
J'ai longtemps hésité à upgrader mon vieux monitor controller Nano Patch, tout simplement parce que je ne trouvais rien à mes besoins, soit trop limités, soit trop grands et chers, soit trop de fonctions inutiles sur une surface trop restreinte. Quand j'ai vu le Monicon XL, je l'ai même commandé avant qu'il était disponible. Certains critiquent le design, moi j'aime bien le look retro. Super facile à utiliser et toutes le fonctions accessibles avec une seule touche de bouton. Les trois fonctions les plus importantes pour moi, y sont, à savoir mute, dim (réglable!) et mono et se trouvent autour du gros bouton volume. Le toucher est très agréable et toutes les touches sont illuminées quand actifs. L'indicateur de corrélation est une fonction tout à fait unique dans les controlleur de cette classe. Point de vu son, je ne remarque pas de différence de son par rapport à un branchement des moniteurs sans controller. Le seul problème que j'ai est le fait que le son est très hot (vu-mètre en permanence au rouge) sur l’entrée coaxiale auquel j'ai branché un lecteur Cd. Mais du coup je ne saurai pas dire si c'est la faute au controlleur au plutôt au lecteur Cd.

Der passt schon ...
Peter2707, 18.11.2020
Vor dem Monicon XL hatte ich schon einige Monitorcontroller. Samson, Mackie bis SSL und auch den kleinen Bruder des Monicon XL. Dieser hier gehört zu den Besseren.

Nichts knackt, nichts wackelt, gute Übersicht. Wie beim kleineren auch hier ein Mono-Ausgang, den ich für einen mittleren Lautsprecher brauche. Das Durchschleifen zu einem externen Kopfhörerverstärker ist praktisch, erspart mir einen Split.

Ich weiß nicht was da für ein Poti verbaut ist, aber ich höre keine Lautstärkeverschiebung zwischen den Boxen, wenn ich leise drehe. Da habe ich bei teureren Controllern schon Anderes erlebt.

In meiner mittelguten Abhörumgebung kann ich im Vergleich zum direkten Sound aus dem Interface keine Klangänderung wahrnehmen.

Technisch könnte der Controller halb so groß sein. Aber durch seine beachtliche Größe und die großen Tasten mit viel Zwischenraum ist er sehr gut zu bedienen, fast ohne hinzusehen.

Die Korrelationsgrad-Anzeige ist ein gutes Feature, das ich so noch an keinem Controller gesehen habe. Sehr praktisch z.B. beim Durchhören von Synth-Sounds und Emulationen von akustischen Instrumenten. Man sieht gleich, ob der Sounddesigner mit der Phase gemogelt hat.

Mit der Pegelanzeige bin ich nicht zufrieden, aber es gibt eine, was für Controller nicht selbstverständlich ist.
