The Aurora Audio GT10x8 Absolute is an 10 input, 8 output unit that enables the engineer to route line level signal where they need to for their session. Each channel on the GT10x8 Absolute has its own input and output level control and pan, so you can determine the level and position in the stereo field (when you choose to use a send in stereo). Also included is a pre and post control that enables you to optimally choose if the mixer fader affects the level to the GT10x8 Absolute or not. Traditionally speaking, you would use the pre mode for a cue mix, while using the post mode for fx sends/mixing applications. But we know that special things can happen when using these modes in their non-traditional roles. To that end, Geoff gave the user 10dB of additional gain on the input control for maximum flexibility.
Although Geoff puts the maximum amount of color, vibe, and soul into every Aurora Audio product, the GT10x8 Absolute takes the opposite approach. Geoff calls this Absolute due to the purity of the signal retained and the lack of color that permeates the sound. Bussing and routing shouldn’t be colored by a path whose job it is to go from point A to point B. If you are combining sounds that you already think are perfect, why would you want it changed by the time it gets to the destination?
The Aurora Audio GT10x8 Absolute is not only a part of the Aurora Audio expandable console but also a key unit in making your tracking and mixing sessions as professional as they can be.
