Ark console

Discrete - Class A - Modular - Analogue Console

The IP311 is our inline lower input module.

It’s designed to offer extended auxiliary send options for the Large Fader and Small Fader.
The IP311 can send the LF and SF signals to a total of 16 auxes, using our unique
Aux Doubling Technology.

On the master section of the
Ark console, you’ll find a total of 16 aux master outputs.
Two sets of eight, named Aux master “A” 1 to 8, and Aux master “B” 1 to 8.
At any time, 8 of these 16 auxes can be accessed from any channel.

There are 8 Aux Sends on the IP311 lower input.
Aux sends 1 to 4 are mono. Aux sends 5 to 8 are stereo pairs.

Each of the mono aux sends can be independently switched On/Off.
The stereo aux sends are switched per pair.

Apart from that, each pair of auxes can be:
  • Switched Pre or Post fader.
  • Used in the Small Fader or Large Fader path.
  • Send to Aux master “A” or Aux master “B” output.

Please read the above again.
There is absolutely no other analogue console which offers this.

It actually means you can have up to 16 auxes, 8 of which can be accessed at the same time on a per-channel basis.
It means all these auxes can be switched pre or post fader, and can be used on either the small or large fader signal path. And it means each of these auxes can be independently turned on/off.

The rest of the IP311 lower input channel is pretty much standard, but of course with the quality of the Ark8.
- You’ll find the small (60mm) fader with pan, solo, solo safe and mute.
- There is the large fader pan, solo and solo safe switch.
- Below the IP311 are the large fader and large fader mute switch

All the solo switches on the Ark8 can act as PFL, AFL, or SIP (Solo-In-Place).
Solo functionality is globally controlled from the master section.

[Safe] switches for small fader and large fader act as “Solo Safe” when the Ark is globally switched to SIP mode, effectively making sure that the selected channels will not be muted when other channels are solo-ed.

All switches are illuminated, but the LED intensity can be globally controlled.

PFL: pre-fader listen
AFL: after-fader listen
SIP: (solo-in-place) This mutes the other channels, unless they have “solo safe” active
