dbx DriveRack VENU360 Loudspeaker Management System
Smart and Powerful Loudspeaker Management
The DriveRack VENU360 brings together everything you love about dbx processors and puts it into one powerful loudspeaker management tool. With the latest advances in AFS and AutoEQ, the VENU360 joins the DriveRack line with powerful DSP that makes your setup life easier and your sound even sweeter. dbx is famous for giving engineers all of the system processing power they need from convenient crossover configurations to system EQ to presets for specific speaker cabinets that automatically set you up for sound success, and all in one piece of roadworthy gear. Tuning your PA, no matter what size, is an important step towards getting great sound in any room, use dbx's DriveRack VENU360 and get it done right.
System configuration virtually any way you like it
The VENU360 gives you three analog inputs, AES digital inputs, and six balanced, analog outputs that are designed to take signal directly from your mixer to fully support mono, stereo, LCR, and aux-fed sub systems. The balanced XLR outputs with full EQ and dynamics processing give you expanded system configuration options that include separate processing for monitor systems and making up to 6-way system operations possible. The VENU360 works great for installed systems and is compatible with Ethernet wall controllers. For portable systems - whether you're flying a line array in an arena or setting up your band at the local pub - the VENU360 makes light work of getting the show ready for downbeat. And since dbx is continually working on making their processing cleaner and better, they included a USB port for easy firmware updates.
Get the latest in dbx processing technologies
The VENU360 gives you professional-level processing power by providing essential loudspeaker tuning tools. With the latest in dbx processing including their most accurate AFS (Automatic Feedback Suppression) ever, AutoEQ and Level Assist functions with front panel RTA mic input, graphic and parametric EQs on both the inputs and outputs, compression and other dynamics processing, time delay functions, and bass-bumping subharmonic synthesis, you get all the power you'd usually find in two racks full of gear in one VENU360!
The power you need but easier than ever to use
Just because it's powerful doesn't mean the VENU360 is complicated. In fact, with its automated wizard setup utilities, getting great sound is easy whether there's a pro at the desk or a Sunday services volunteer. A large, super-bright LCD screen gives you access to a setup wizard that supports full system configuration and tuning including monitoring systems, access to loudspeaker presets, and hundreds of other audio paramaters. Like what you hear? Then save it! You'll have up to 75 user-definable presets to make switching from the Saturday night service praise and worship band to the Sunday morning choir configuration a snap. These presets are especially helpful if you rely on volunteers, because even if you run full range and mono, the VENU360 works to protect your system components while optimizing your sound. And if you're a member of a touring band, nothing makes an impression on a venue manager like a quick setup and great sound, and nothing makes it easier for you to do than the VENU360.
The convenience of wireless control
Setting up a PA is hard work. You spend the day unloading gear, getting it into position, cabling it up, getting signal through it, and now, it's time to tune - here's where the VENU360 can be your hero. Simply plug a router into the VENU360 and you'll be able to set up and operate it using dbx's app on your Mac or PC or iOS or Android device - the VENU360 gives you the flexibility to configure your PA offline and get it all done before you even step foot in the venue. When you're ready to fine tune your pre-configurations, fire up your tablet or iPad and tune while you walk the room, the VENU360 gives you a chance to tune your PA from the audience perspective and not just from the front of house position.
