Lawo launches mc²36 xp desk


Lawo has added to its range of audio production consoles with the Lawo mc²36 xp desk. Physically identical to the mc²36 MkII, but without onboard processing, the mc²36 xp supports up to 256 DSP channels.

It is designed to offer Lawo audio quality, IP network and processing redundancy, and eligibility for a multi-slice console array based around a single A__UHD Core processing unit.

The mc²36 xp is designed to cater to the expectations of sound supervisors who wish to benefit from a consistent user experience in all their production hub’s audio control rooms, OB trucks and venues where space is at a premium.

True to its ‘xp’ moniker, the console requires external processing. In combination with the Pooling 8 license, it can share the DSP heft of one A__UHD Core with up to seven other virtual or physical console surfaces.

Available with 16, 32 and 48 faders, the mc²36 xp comes equipped with the same pro-grade controls and touchscreens as its bigger brothers, the mc²56 and mc²96. Its onboard I/O capability is identical to the inputs and outputs offered by its all-in-one mc² 36 console sister: 16 Lawo-grade MIC/Line inputs, 16 Line outputs, eight AES inputs and outputs, eight GPI/Os, plus a local MADI port (SFP).

The mc²36 xp supports 48kHz and 96kHz operation, immersive audio mixing and all relevant IP standards (ST2110, AES67/RAVENNA, ST2022-7). It is a HOME native and offers seamless production file compatibility with its mc² siblings.
