Audient Introduces The Nero Desktop Monitor Controller

Audient has announced the Nero desktop monitor controller. This controller comes with four stereo inputs, three stereo speaker outputs, and a subwoofer output, among other features.

Audient says that the company’s analog console heritage and the high-end Centro controller inspire its newest monitor controller.

Flexible connectivity

The Audient Nero has four stereo analog inputs. These include two line level inputs, one cue mix input, and one aux input (RCA or mini jack). There are also optical and coaxial SPDIF digital inputs. On the output side, the Nero features three stereo speaker outputs and one subwoofer output. It also has four headphone outputs with independent volume controls – one for the engineer and three foldback headphone outs for the artists.

The Nero features Audient’s “Precision Matched Attenuation Technology”. The company claims that this ensures perfectly matched volume levels for the left and right channels. They’ve also included a feature called Smart Touchpoints, which allows you to customize settings and save them to the Nero’s configurable buttons. From what we know so far, it seems that the Nero’s routing options are quite a bit more flexible and customizable than the front panel reveals at first glance.

There’s also an internal talkback microphone, as well as an input with phantom power for an external talkback mic.

All in all, the Audient Nero seems like an interesting new option for a mid-grade monitor controller. It looks like it does pretty much anything you’d want in a small to medium studio, and maybe more.
