No. Up to 3 maximum. To monitor from up to three sources simultaneously (instead of the default single source), first enter setup mode. To enter setup mode press the mono and alt spkr buttons simultaneously. Both switches will flash alternately indicating that the D-Box is… READ MORE Can I monitor all 4 sources (SUM, ANALOG, DAW, CD) simultaneously?

Dangerous gear does not get extremely hot. However, we always recommend leaving blank spaces anyway. More ventilation always equals longer gear life, no matter how hot or cool your gear runs. Do not rack your Dangerous gear next to very hot gear such as power… READ MORE Do I need to leave blank rack spaces above/below my gear?
No- with Dangerous Summing, “Bounce to Disk” is unnecessary. Instead, record your mix into your DAW in real time by taking a pair outputs from your D-Box and plugging them into 2 line inputs on your interface. Once this mix has been recorded onto a… READ MORE Do I still use “Bounce to Disk” to record my mixes when using Dangerous Summing?
No. The D-Box has less features, but the identical, mastering grade sound quality.
Connect a S/PDIF to AES cable and use the front panel controls to select the source (DAW or CD). The converter will recognize and lock to either AES or S/PDIF sources. Only one digital source may be monitored at a time. Purchase high quality cables!… READ MORE How can I go from my interfaces’ S/PDIF out to the AES DAW input on the Dbox?
The D/A is clocked by the pulse that is embedded in the AES or SPDIF source that you are inputing to the converter.
The talkback mic feeds the headphone output independently. This means that if you turn down your headphone output, but turn up your talkback level, you will hear just the talkback through the headphone output.
Each headphone output provides 20 watts of clean, high quality amplification. There is plenty of juice to feed headphone distribution boxes like the Redco Little Red Cue Box. Depending on the impedance of the headphones utilized, the headphone output can handle up to 16 sets… READ MORE How do I hook up more than two pairs of headphones?
The D-Box is made with all the same components as all Dangerous Gear. The summing section is identical to the 2-Bus (but cut in half), and the D/A and monitoring paths are mostly the same as what can be found in our other gear.
The D-Box summing section has 8 channels, but can also be linked with a 2-Bus to expand the amount of summing channels.
To monitor from up to three sources simultaneously (instead of the default single source), first enter setup mode. To enter setup mode press the mono and alt spkr buttons simultaneously. Both switches will flash alternately indicating that the D-Box is waiting to set the input… READ MORE I want to hear two sources at once, how do I do that?
Yes! The Dbox is simply half the inputs (8 channels of summing vs. 16). Dangerous Music NEVER compromises your music. We may remove features to get to a price, but never sound quality.
“My ears, my record player and my Dangerous D-BOX are the three most irreplaceable tools in my box.”
“I love the D-BOX. No other unit that I’ve seen accomplishes what it does. Between the monitoring, headphone amp and summing mixer, it makes my job increasingly easier; and the music I make sounds 100-times better.”
The CD Input is a digital input (AES/SPDIF) that utilizes the D-Box’s mastering-grade D/A converter for monitoring. This allows you to listen to songs through the same converter and at the same reference level as your mix. You can plug in any device that has… READ MORE What is the CD Input for? Can I plug in an iPod there?
The analog input can be set to either -10dBV or +4dBu. If the signal is too loud, you probably have it set to -10dBV when it really needs to be +4. To switch this, enter setup by pressing the mono and alt spkr buttons simultaneously,… READ MORE When I select the “analog” input, the signal is waaay louder than the other inputs…
The analog input can be set to either -10dBV or +4dBu. If the signal is too low, you probably need to boost it up to -10dBV. To do this, enter setup by pressing the mono and alt spkr buttons simultaneously, and then hit the analog… READ MORE When I select the “analog” input, the signal is weak…
“They function based on what we call “”momentoggle””. There are two modes: momentary and latching. In LATCH MODE, if a button is pressed and released quickly, it will lock. In TOGGLE MODE, if a button is pressed and held for more than a second, the… READ MORE Why do my buttons sometimes latch and other times they don’t?
Mono sums the left and right channels together. If anything is out of phase between the two channels, they will boost each other, thus making the mix quieter, or losing specific instruments. This button is there to help ensure that the mix is “in phase”… READ MORE Why do things get louder when I press the Mono Button?
Mono sums the left and right channels together. If anything is out of phase between the two channels, they will cancel each other out, thus making the mix quieter, or losing specific instruments. This button is there to help ensure that the mix is “in… READ MORE Why do things get quieter when I press the Mono Button?
When switching between DAW and SUM on the D-Box, you are switching between 2 different D/A converters- the converter in the D-Box, and the converter in your interface. Different converters will be calibrated to different reference levels, therefore one may be louder than the other.
Yes, just plug in a S/PDIF cable that is terminated to M-XLR on the D-Box end. This cable must be kept under a few feet long in order to not lose data.
