Comes with the original Cadac BOX. It could be employed in a recording studio environment at a push, but it lacks some essential monitoring features for that market and isn't ideally suited.
From first sight, the console is unmistakably a Cadac design, with its very solid construction and light-brown, one-piece control panel, covered with a dense collection of small but elegant knobs and 100mm, long-throw faders. The console's compact wedge profile is slightly extended at the front to incorporate a traditional wooden armrest, which adds to the classic British design styling.
I was able to manhandle the 2442 console single-handed without too much huffing and puffing, as it weighs 25kg (the 1642 desk is 18kg and the 3242 is a two-person lift at 28kg). The back of the Live 1 console rises 180mm above the mounting surface and the desk measures 560mm front-to-back.The overall width ranges from 436mm for the small 1642 model to 784mm for the big 3242 version, with the 2442 console being a surprisingly compact 610mm wide. Only the number of mono mic/line input channels varies between the three models: the output side of the console is the same for all frame sizes.
The baby 1642 model features eight mono mic channels, the 2442 has 16 and the 3242 has 24 but, in addition, all three versions also include four stereo line-input channels and it's these that provide the missing'8' channel count which provides the basis for each model's identifying number! Cadac's long-established and well-regarded standard four-band EQ is provided on all inputs, with two swept mid-range bands on the mono channels and two fixed-frequency bell sections for the stereo channels. All input channels can be routed directly to the stereo master bus or to four mono groups, which can themselves be panned into the stereo master bus. The Live 1 features a new high-performance mic preamp, with individually switchable phantom power and high-pass filter, and every channel is equipped with a direct output and an unbalanced insert point, as well as being able to access six mono auxiliary sends (switched globally in pairs between pre/post-fader modes). All the usual talkback, PFL/AFL and metering facilities are included and, ignoring the dedicated talkback-mic input, these Live 1 consoles provide a total of 26, 34 or 42 usable input channels, depending on version which is a lot, given their physically compact frames.
The two larger consoles employ an external, 2U, rackmounting power unit (100V-240V AC) with a two-metre linking cable, while the 1642 model's universal power supply is an internal design. Every console ships complete with two LED gooseneck lamps, and as the 16-channel model is small enough to be rackmounted, that model is supplied with a pair of 19-inch rackmounting brackets, too.
