Inputs

Centralise, customise, control
As your studio grows it becomes harder to control. Nero enables you to centralise, connect and control all your monitoring needs from your desktop using Nero’s array of stereo inputs.

  • 2 x Line Level Inputs
  • 1 x Dedicated Cue Mix Input
  • 1 x Aux Input (RCA or Mini Jack)
  • Optical & Coaxial S/PDIF Inputs

Outputs
Reference your mixes on up to three sets of speakers, independently set and match volume for all speakers and audition and assign your sub to any monitor path. Nero also provides one dedicated monitor grade headphone amp and three foldback grade headphone amps, making sure you’re ready to take on the loudest of sessions with crystal clear headphone mixes.

  • 1 x Main Speaker Outputs
  • 2 x Alternative Speaker Outputs
  • 1 x Assignable Sub Output
  • 4 x Headphone Outputs

Precision Matched Stereo Volume Control
Nero perfectly matches the volume of the left and right channels of your stereo signal using Audient’s custom Precision Matched Attenuation Technology. Unlike other monitor controllers, this prevents any deviation in volume between your left and right monitors or unbalancing of your stereo image, enabling you to monitor accurately and mix with confidence.

Assignable Sub
Easily assign a sub to activate when switching to a monitor path of choice but maintain the ability to switch it on and off without losing your saved preset. Nero also lets you audition the sub on any alternative set of speakers without forcing you to assign it permanently.

Smart Touchpoints
Smart Touchpoints enable you to customise your workflow on the fly. Easily route and configure Nero’s outputs and monitor controls to create monitoring combinations that suit your needs. Simply hold down a Smart Touchpoint to put it into setup mode, select your routing options and press it again to save.

- Assign any input source to your headphone outputs using the SRC buttons.
- Assign the Talkback Mic to any or all headphone outputs and quickly communicate with your artists.
- Save time by easily setting any of your outputs permanently to Mono. Perfect for your Mono reference speakers.
- Assign your Subwoofer to any or all of your 3 stereo outputs with the ability to still switch on/off and audition without losing your saved routing.
- Save all your settings permanently by holding down any two speaker output buttons

Console Style Monitor Control
Utilising Audient’s vast experience in implementing monitor control in both recording consoles and desktop controllers, Nero features David Dearden designed circuitry and a range of flexible monitor controls including dedicated talkback, cut & dim along with polarity, mono, speaker select and cue mix monitoring.

  • User Defined Dim
    Set your attenuation using the volume knob
  • Tactile Speaker Select
    Audition your mixes by quickly switching between monitors
  • Sum and Difference
    Use this classic trick to quickly hear your stereo information
  • Latching buttons
    Activate Mono, Polarity or Talkback with either a tap (latch) or a tap and hold
  • Cue Mix Monitoring
    Reference what your artist is hearing and fix problems fast

Talkback

  • 3 Input sources (Internal, Dynamic, Condenser)
    Communicate with your artist quickly using Nero’s dedicated talkback mic or any microphone of your choice.
  • Dedicated Gain control
    Quickly adjust mic volume to suit the artist.
  • Assignable headphone selection
    Route your talkback mic to specific headphone outputs and always be in control of your session.
