The XP 2016S is an optional external processor designed specifically for use with the MP 2016S. The XP 2016S is intended to mount above or below the MP 2016S. It connects with a single 10-inch ribbon cable and is engaged with the flip of a switch on the MP 2016S front panel. If an XP 2016S is not connected, the XP 2016S engage switch on the MP 2016S has no effect.
The XP 2016S provides dedicated Accelerated-Slope, 3-band, full-cut tone controls for each of the six stereo Input channels, A-Post-B Crossfader Assign switches for all six Input channels, a high-performance Active Crossfader with full range Contour control, and a stereo 10-segment peak dBu Master/Cue Meter with peak hold.
The six stereo, post Mix Level signals in the MP 2016S are fed to the XP 2016S. When the XP 2016S is not engaged, the post Mix Level signals go directly to the Master Mix in the MP 2016S. When the XP 2016S is engaged, the stereo Master Mix comes from the XP 2016S.
If all Input channels on the XP 2016S are assigned Post-Crossfader, the Mix will be identical to the MP 2016S (with the addition of tone controls for each Input channel). For Crossfader control, simply assign a channel to the A or B side of the Crossfader. The Active Crossfader features a full-range Contour control for smooth blending or ultra fast cuts.
The Master/Cue Meter follows the source selection of the headphone monitor on the MP 2016S. If Master is selected, the XP 2016S Meter monitors the pre-house-level Master signal. If Cue is selected, the XP 2016S meter monitors the Cue Source.
The XP 2016S matches the MP 2016S ergonomics, packaged in a compact 19 inch, 3U rack mount chassis, 5 inches deep.
