The Portable Monitor Controller without Audio Compromise.

The Dangerous Source provides the critical link between your ears and the music. Every tracking and mixing decision hinges upon what you hear: how to locate the microphones sweet spot for the perfect vocal, where to place the panning to define each instruments space, creating the perfect marriage of kick and bass in the track

- Portable or Rack Installable (kit optional)
- 2 Speaker Outputs- Can Be Engaged Simultaneously
- Headphones Can Monitor Single or Multiple Sources
- 2 Analog Inputs: 1/8" Mini Stereo & XLR/TRS Combo Jack
- 2 Onboard Stereo 24-bit/192kHz D/A Converters
- 2 Digital Inputs: AES/SPDIF and USB
- USB IN, up to 24-bit/192kHz for Windows and Mac

Plug in two pairs of headphones and get inspired with a Dangerous caliber headphone amp.

Select any of the four sources individually or at the same time- plug your iPod into AN2 and jam along in AN1.

Listen to any combination of sources from either section. For example, let the singer hear their own personal headphone mix from the AN2 input, while you engineer the real mix, coming from the USB input.

Theres even a line level control room output, mirroring the speaker selector for dubbing, sampling or running external meters.

Switch between two sets of speakers... or use one output for a subwoofer... or play them both at once to blow up the neighborhood.

Built for life on the road, slide the Source into your backpack and hit the streets.
