NAB Sneak Peek: Glensound Introduces Cub
Everyone likes cute baby animals. For the NAB Show Glensound has brought in a Cub.The Cub is a digital mini-mixer featuring two inputs, two outputs and a USB audio interface for Phone or other smart devices.
Incorporating multiple level inputs and return monitoring, the compact unit allows broadcasters to use smartphone apps by connecting a smart device to the Cub via a top-panel-mounted A type USB plug. The Cub is delivered with a Lightning and 30-pin Apple interface lead as well as a mini USB connection for linking to laptops and PCs.
The Cub is plug-and-play as a USB audio Class 1 device with the possibility enabling further modes via ASIO or USB audio Class 2 drivers. This interface allows integration into IP soft codec apps such as Luci Live, or as a recording interface for the device into programs like Steinberg Cubasis. The Cub also interfaces with various audio test and measurement apps available, including the new RTS Omneo intercom app.
The two inputs on the Cub itself are mic/line/switchable 48 V phantom power and include mic amps. Each input is individually switchable between two local XLR outputs or to both, thus allowing the mixer to be configured as a stereo device or to work in a twin mono mode. The user can also configure the input on/off buttons for multiple operational modes (momentary/latching/cough).
There are two 6.35 millimeter headphone outputs, both served from a three-input headphone mixer (USB 1, USB 2, input mix) and they have left/both/right switching per input. The Cub, which operates from four AA batteries or via external DC, will be available for delivery at the end of April.
