This is an ATI Paragon II Monitor console. I used it for 2 years as a Front of house / Recording console. The micpres eq's are very much like API. The famous JDK R22 compressor was designed after the compressors in every channel of this console (that's 48 JDK R22 compressors) This is the very best sounding console ever made. Console comes with Power supply and power supply cable.It also has builtin Clear Com system. Some of the channels need repair and it's missing a few knobs. The Paragon II Production Console from Audio Toys, Inc. (ATI) packs a lot of ultra-precision audio processing technology into a compact, easy-to-use package.
Combining full Class A analog processing with digital controlled switching, the system represents a high water mark in the design of live-performance consoles. I recently reviewed the Paragon II at Mariner's Church in Irvine, Cal. Features Paragon II is designed to handle front-of-house, live-to-air and theatrical mixing assignments, eight stereo subgroups, eight stereo matrix outputs, two mono and two stereo mix outputs, 18 stereo aux outputs or 34 mono aux outputs the console can handle complex mixing and zone assignments - and still packs enough horsepower to provide a number of on-stage monitor sends, if necessary. Usefully, three variable direct-outputs from each channel - in mono or stereo - can be used for post-fader effect sends or prefader record outputs.
The standard offering comprises 48 input strips arrayed in two banks of 24 either side of a central control section; larger offerings add additional channel strips in buckets of 00 channels. Channel strips are available in mono or stereo configurations, routing to eight stereo output groups and controllable via eight stereo VCA channels and eight mute groups. Stereo input channels can be installed in any position within a 48-channel frame, up to a maximum of 24 modules, each of which is combined - what else? - with a stereo assign and a stereo rear input module. An eight-bus matrix accepts inputs from groups plus a pair of stereo and a pair of mono busses.
And it's all too easy to raise a quizzical eyebrow at the number "eight" here - Will we need more? Remember that these are stereo groups, VCA and matrix busses; with more and more stereo sources appearing as inputs during front-of-house, live-to-air and theatrical applications, a fader-per-channel and fader-per bus dramatically simplifies a mix. Did you know that the JDK R22 Dual Channel Compressor has a famous, high-end lineage?
The compressor circuit in the R22 comes directly from the famous ATI Paragon PII Live Sound Production Console, long considered the top-tier analog live sound console. The Paragon was used for major tours by Sting, Tina Turner, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, U2, and many more for both front of house and monitor mixing.
And one of the stand-out features of the Paragon was its stellar compressor circuit the same compressor circuit found in the JDK R22!
