The ML-4D/OUT-E is a compact converter
that converts Dante input signals into 4-channel line output
signals. With half the size of a standard 1U rack, the ML-4D/OUT-E
is suitable for different Dante systems as an exquisite analog
output unit. The built-in DSP mixer enables small scale systems to
fully perform with a variety of input/output models the TASCAM Dante
Compact Processor Series offers. ML-4D/OUT-E supports up to
96kHz/24bit and uses Euroblock connectors for analog line output.
4 line output, 4 Dante input/output
The ML-4D/OUT-E not only converts Dante signals into 4-channel line
signals; it can also convert them into 4-channel Dante output
signals, making it possible to direct these to a Dante established
network using the built-in DSP matrix mixer.
Half-rack size Dante Compact Processor Series
The Dante Compact Processor Series has a line-up of models with
different input/output specifications:
MM-4D/IN, 4-channel mic/line input
ML-4D/OUT, 4-channel line output
MM-2D, 2-channel mic/line input/output
AE-4D, AES/EBU 4-channel input/output
For analog input/output models, the branch extends with units
equipped with Euroblock or XLR connectors that users can choose
depending on their usage. By combining multiple different units all
at once, it is possible to match and introduce them into various
Optimal input/output unit for different Dante systems
The Dante Compact Processor Series provide easy additional mic/line
or AES/EBU input/output to several situations and places such as
public facilities, broadcasting stations, recording studios, etc.
where Dante systems are being used. They are the optimal
input/output unit for small scale environments.
Structuring small scale systems with the DSP function
The Dante Compact Processor Series are equipped with a matrix mixer
that includes a DSP feature with compressors, parametric EQs,
limiter, delay, etc. functions. From the input of microphone signals
to the output of powered speakers; also applicable with
recording/playback systems, the Dante Compact Processor Series can
build up a complete small system on their own.
Routing to each Dante device is easy via Dante controller.
Input/output units can be added flexibly to new or already
established Dante systems.
Compatible with Dante Domain Manager and AES67 mode
The Dante Compact Processor Series are compatible with Dante Domain
Manager, which features security functions and enables the use of
wide-area networks. This helps the Dante Compact Processor Series
access easily to Dante systems using already established network
infrastructures. With the AES67 mode, connection to AES67 network
systems is also possible.
The advantages of introducing Dante Network Audio
These are some of the benefits provided when adopting Dante Network
Reduction of system costs
It is possible to have a maximum transmission of 128ch I/O with one
single CAT5e cable. This leads to fewer cables needed, not to
mention the reduction of costs on wiring and space for cable pits.
Improved connection flexibility
All equipment can be freely connected and routed by applying star
Built-in 4 in/4 out matrix mixer
Using the built-in matrix mixer, users can mix 4-channel Dante
inputs and configure settings on each of the four output zones. The
matrix mixer is also equipped with a ducking function and an ambient
noise compensator function, which detects the level of environmental
sounds and automatically adjusts the input level of the source.
Flexible routing allows users to choose the output zone of 4 Dante
inputs or the built-in matrix mixer as 4 line output and/or 4 Dante
output. The ML-4D/OUT-E can be also used a as a simple line output
unit by bypassing the matrix mixer.
10 band EQ and a variety of output effects included
10 band EQ, high pass filter, low pass filter, delay, and limiter
They can be finely adjusted depending on the powered speakers, or to
the environment in which the unit is used.
8 band parametric EQ
High pass filter / low shelving EQ
Low pass filter / high shelving EQ
Scene preset and timer event functions
Effect parameters, mix levels, input/output routings, etc. settings
can be saved as up to 50 different presets by the scene preset
function. This function allows switching different presets
seamlessly in different environments. By using the scene preset
function together with the SNTP client included-timer event
function*, it is possible to automatically switch different scenes
at a specified time.
Power supply can be provided to the unit via PoE (Power over
No need for AC adaptors; power supply construction fees and
installation costs can be reduced by using a PoE compatible network
Remote control via control software
Controlling effects or the matrix mixer can be easily done through
the dedicated control software; depending on the amount of controls
the user needs, there are two types:
TASCAM DCP CONNECT, designed for system integrators/managers that
handle the configuration and settings of an entire system.
TASCAM EZ CONNECT, designed for end-users and allowing them to use
Compatible with Windows / macOS / Android / iOS devices.
Installable according to usage/environment
Units can be easilly installed directly under desks or on walls with
the included surface mount adaptors.
With the optional rack-mountable shelf AK-RS1, up to two Dante
Compact Processor models can be installed in a 19 inch rack space.
