The HP-W console shares the diligent research and insight that inspired Crest Audio's HP-Eight consoles. Incorporating more features and flexibility to the HP-W while maintaining the audio quality and rugged build design the HP-Eight is known for. The HP-W is a perfect solution for such application as fixed installations, churches, stadiums, auditoriums, theater and corporate AV. Easy to use, flexibility and affordability makes the HP-W is a premier choice for the job.
The HP-W is packed with many innovative features. HP-W has four stereo line input channels, which can be handled in a dual mono or split track application. With a pre source balance control, a discrete blend of the split track can then be sent to stage monitors via the aux sends. A second blend of the split track can be sent to the FOH system via the Left/Right mono busses by using the post source balance control.
Standard on all HP-W consoles are 8 mono channels of AutoMix for "hands-off" spoken word mixing applications. With a push of a button to activate the AutoMix feature, the HP-W will automatically reduce the gain on microphones not being used, which nearly eliminates feedback. Having the AutoMix feature engaged will also diminish surrounding low frequencies and eradicate the chances of comb filtering. With or without the AutoMix enabled you can control the thresh hold of the compressors which are on the 8 AutoMix channels.
Every channel on the HP-W is equipped with 48 volt phantom power, pad, polarity switches and PFL's options. In addition to an input gain control, four-band EQ is also provided with fixed high and low frequency points and sweep frequency control on the two mid bands. 10 auxiliary sends and Bus assignment, L/R, and Mono switches are also provided in addition to the 8 channel mute groups system and 100 mm faders.
