Heritage Audio proudly announces the Baby Ram Monitor Controller
 
3 Attachment(s)
Introducing the Baby RAM: a boutique, passive-circuit monitor controller inspired by classic European console designs. Baby RAM is the ultimate controller for total transparency — a zero-compromise signal path, paired with a simplified control set keeps both your monitors and your ears where you need them.

Baby RAM features a 4 gang, 24 step rotary switch for volume as opposed to cheaper stereo potentiometers, which means the precision of your stereo signal is perfect on every position! Baby RAM also has no insertion loss, meaning that there’s no extra coloration or signal loss at any settings.

Baby RAM might pack a zero-compromise circuit design, but it couldn’t be any easier to use: 2 stereo -pair inputs and outputs — both balanced and ground free (unbalanced compatible) on gold plated TRS jacks, and Mute, Dim, Mono, and Volume monitoring controls make Baby RAM a breeze to work with. And with it’s passive design, it also means you have no concerns with bad power supplies, as no supply is needed!

Baby RAM is built with the most cutting edge methods in manufacturing and design, without ever compromising audio quality or cutting corners.

Price: $179

Looks interesting stepped alternative to the nos monitor controller

JimmyTurbo 26th June 2020 04:17 PM

Well this is exactly what I'm looking for.
When will these ship?

mutetourettes 26th June 2020 04:56 PM

Hmmm, considers possibility of hacking the back into a db25 for neatness...

Good idea. Add a small "doghouse" at the back? I reckon with about 4-5cm you could do just that.

Good idea considering it's only 8 TRS inputs. That said, one 8ch snake would keep it super clean as well!

Wow. That price looks too good to be true!

phantomcenter 28th June 2020 09:50 PM

Are these shipping? Exactly what I've been waiting for for the home studio.

DogCake 28th June 2020 09:54 PM

It looks great, but 24 steps may result too few, I think.

Incept 28th June 2020 10:48 PM

Looks very nice. If you add 2 headphone outputs and charge an extra $50 I would be happy to pay $229.00

buuuut that would require active circuitry etc etc... maybe just get a JDS atom

to go with it?

sam guaiana 19th July 2020 07:14 PM

Can both output work at once? Like can you run a sub on this that you can cut?

Hardtoe 19th July 2020 10:50 PM

I already have Drawmer MC3.1, but this fills a hole in the market nicely - If I need a simple monitor controller this would be the one - the other affordable options I'ver seen look cheesy and colour the sound!

Nice. Will there be a version with xlrs? I’d hate to have to build converter cables for something as clean as this.

j,

leckel1996 20th July 2020 10:59 AM

Nice, this is exactly what I’ve been looking/waiting for. Will certainly be buying this!

j,

does anything exist in two versions like that?

mike vee 20th July 2020 09:51 PM

This is exactly what the market has been needing. Would be nice to have headphones and talk-back, though. Basically to replace the functions of Apollo twin.

Plenty of gear with combo jacks.

Is this resistor-cascade based volume regulation?

If so, this would be a very interesting (and much cheaper) alternative to the Goldpoint SA2X series.
