Overview

The JBL MSC1 Monitor System Controller with Room Mode Correction combines essential monitor system features and JBL's next-generation RMC technology to control your LSR system and tune it to overcome low-frequency problems in the recording room. This RMC technology will work with any studio monitor system in any room, so no matter what speaker system you own, you can have a truly calibrated environment fine-tuned to give you your best mixes.

As the hub of your system, the MSC1 controls the monitoring of 3 stereo input sources, such as computer workstation, mixing console, electronic musical instrument, CD, or personal MP3 player.

The MSC1's primary speaker "A" outputs include a level control, monitor EQ, and RMC Room Mode Correction to tune the monitors to the room. Selecting the "B" outputs assigns the volume control and input routing to a second set of speakers. Subwoofer controls let you add a sub to the "A" speaker system, with a dedicated level control, and a choice of bass management crossover settings.

The MSC1 headphone output and independent level control let you send a headphone feed to a performer or monitor using headphones in the control room.

Control Center Software
In addition to managing RMC Calibration, the MSC1 Control Center Software provides fine-control of monitor EQ, speaker alignment delay, subwoofer balance, and bass-management crossover settings. Control Center Software is included with the MSC1. Control Center is compatible with XP and Vista 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Macintosh software is in development.

This Monitor Controller Adjusts to the acoustics of Your Room!!!.

By Fernandez Shaw

from chicago Illinois

Comments about JBL MSC1 Monitor System Controller with RMC:

Get your mixes to translats! The JBL MSCI monitor system controler s a powerful heart to your monittoring system. Yes, it's a monitor controller, giving you easy switching between two sets of studio monitors and a subwoofer---but it's much more than that! You get an included measurement microphone as well as JBL's Room Mode Correction technology. That way, you can compensate for acoustics problems in your room, so your mixes will always translate! The MSCI works with all studio monitors, in any room.

Great new product to outwit the Big knob

By Scott Everett

from Austin, Tx

Comments about JBL MSC1 Monitor System Controller with RMC:

I will give this 5 stars only because JBL released the updated RMC software. It is a bit more cumbersome to setup than the advertisement would have you believe. It works like a champ when you get it going though, and for the size of my studio room, and layout, it fits like a glove. Very good sound, and the RMC software does a great job at rolling off low room rumbles, and helping aid in a more balanced mix. Just get the new version of the software from JBLpro.com.

Incredible Monitor System Controller

By Derek

from Orlando, Florida

Comments about JBL MSC1 Monitor System Controller with RMC:

I bought this to go with my 10'' JBL sub and 5'' JBL studio Monitors and it was the perfect addition to add to my setup. I have my Computer, 003, and TV all running into my MSC1 and I switch inputs depending on what I'm doing at the moment. It just made working that much simpler. The only downside I found is that this is not Mac compatible until the spring. I wish someone would have mentioned that to me, it still works. Just I have to wait to use the calibration system until JBL releases the software on their site.

Not a good experience

By GW

from Oklahoma City, OK

Comments about JBL MSC1 Monitor System Controller with RMC:

I love the concept of this product, but found the implementation lacking. I found the unit to be clunky, noisy and very hard to work with. The unit would never calibrate properly and I kept getting occasional noise that sounded like a grounding loop. After going back and forth with JBL support I finally took it back. If you look around on the internet, you can find very mixed reviews about the MSC1. Even my local guitar center staff had one guy who loved it and said it flattened out his studio and another guy who had the same experience as I did and took it back. Be careful and do your research before purchasing!

Complete failure

By Shawn Olsen

from Portland OR

Comments about JBL MSC1 Monitor System Controller with RMC:

Got the first unit home and by the second day the unit was emitting pops and random noises with no input. Took it back for exchange and the second unit went completely dead within 2 weeks. Sent it back to JBL and they returned it repaired. 2 months later the input selector had issues with the left channel going dead. 3 months later, the unit has completely failed again. It's time to give up, warn people about this unit, and take a hammer to it.

Not good at all!!!!

By Samuel Pagan

from Orlando, FL

Comments about JBL MSC1 Monitor System Controller with RMC:

I do not write reviews, but I feel this unit needs one. Bought mine 4 months ago and it worked OK. It was a pain to set up but, once it was, it worked well. Six months into my purchase the unit's left channel does not work. As I looked online I find that this happens all the time! Save your money for something different as quality is lacking with this unit!
