The remote-controllable 6416m Mic Input Module provides 16 state-of-the-art mic-level analog inputs to a Pro64 system. Each input channel features continuous gain control, +48V phantom power, low cut filter, phase invert, mute, and a network activation button. With a switchable pad per channel, the 6416m also accepts balanced line-level inputs.
Audio settings for each channel can be configured directly from the 6416m front panel or controlled remotely using the optional RCI Remote Control Interface combined with the MCS Mic Control Surface. A single MCS can be used to control all 6416m Mic Input Modules in a Pro64 system or those assigned to a particular Control Group. Sixteen mic preamp presets can be saved in each 6416m to allow quick recall of commonly used settings.
The 6416m mic preamp gain can also be remote controlled directly from a Yamaha console when a 6416Y2 A-Net Interface Card is installed by using m-control™ which allows the gain, pad and phantom power changes sent form the console to be transmitted over the network.
To control a 6416m and the entire Pro64 network form a central location, use the free Pro64 Network Manager software. Its simple on-screen interface allows advanced functionality such as channel naming, device presets, and network-wide scene save and recall.
Pro64 A-Net supports three ranges of variable sample rates: 44.1/48kHz±, 96kHz±, and 192kHz±. No matter the sample rate, all 16 input channels on the 6416m are available for use. All audio is streamed at 24-bit resolution with no data compression at any time.
On the rear panel, the 6416m features both XLR jacks and DB25 multipin connectors for inputs and passive splits. A-Net network connections use heavy-duty locking EtherCon® connectors.
The 6416m includes I/O for Aviom's Virtual Data Cables™. The VDCs can be used for simultaneously distributing up to 14 channels of non-audio control data to any device on the Pro64 network. The 6416m provides VDC connectors for MIDI In, MIDI Out, RS232, and GPIO.
The 6416m also features the security of a rear-panel four-pin XLR connector for optional backup DC power.
