Rane takes performance mixer design as seriously as performing DJs take
their art form. In an effort to provide the best instrument possible, Rane
devoted two years of R&D to developing a mixer with unparalleled performance.
The TTM 56 is flexible, durable, and feature packed. The audio quality
of the TTM 56 qualifies it for use in the most demanding live venue, recording
studio or live broadcast applications.
and Channel Faders
Rane's patented magnetic fader is the fastest, most accurate, and long
lasting on the planet. The design uses non-contact magnetic position sensor
technology previously reserved for the most demanding aerospace and industrial
applications. No travel noise - No bleed - ever! Unlike optical non-contact
faders, the magnetic fader is impervious to smoke, moisture, temperature
and aging. The electrical performance of these faders is totally unaffected
by use. The mechanical life of the magnetic fader exceeds 10 million operations.
These magnetic faders know exactly what your hand is doing! A proprietary
curve-translation module converts your hand motion into precise audio level
control. The TTM 56 offers the user more flexible curve selection and fader
assignment options than ever before. This technology is used for both Channel
Faders and the Crossfader.
The Crossfader control includes Reverse switch, Mode switch and independent,
continuously adjustable Contours for A-side and B-side. In Mode 1, the
Contour control adjusts from smooth blend to extremely fast cut. Select
Mode 2 for center-cut effect (PGM 1 and PGM 2 off in the center) with full
range Contour control.
The Channel Fader controls include Reverse switches, Mode switches and
continuously adjustable Contours. In Mode 1, the Contour control adjusts
from smooth blend to extremely fast cut. Select Mode 2 for Left/Right pan
effect with Contour control. The Channel Reverse switch allows left and
right hand Channel Faders to control Program 1 or Program 2.
Rane's proprietary FlexFx effects loop allows assigning post-fader Program
1, post-fader Program 2 or both to the effects loop. A Wet/Dry pan control
gives the user total control of how much processed signal is in the mix.
With the effects loop post-fader, reverb and other delay effects respond
to both Channel Fader and Crossfader operation.
The TTM 56 features two 10-segment meters with peak-hold. A source switch
allows users to select dual-mono Cue or stereo Master operation. No need
to stress over dropping a channel without knowing.
Auxiliary Input and Output
A stereo AUX Input with a Level control provides input for a session
mix, drum machine or other auxiliary input signal. The stereo AUX Output
with Level control provides output for Session Mix, Booth monitoring, recording
or second zone.
The TTM 56 provides 3-band, full cut tone controls for Program 1 and
Program 2. EQ engage switches allow A/B comparison and the ability to quickly
cut or add EQ effect.
Magnetic Fader Testing
The engineers at Rane employed a sewing machine to test the durability
of the magnetic fader. Each stroke generated one count. We have it set
to apply a million strokes to the fader every day. We tested 13 million
strokes before we got tired of hearing the darn thing, and the fader shows
absolutely no wear or degradation.
Channel Fader and Crossfader
For unprecedented creativity, the Crossfader and Channel Faders have a
nearly infinite range of responses with the combination of the Reverse,
Mode switches, and variable Contour Controls. The chart below illustrates
the volume curves for slider positions between PGM 1 and PGM 2 on the Crossfader
with various settings. Mode 1 is a normal Crossfade, while Mode 2 has a
