Simple and elegant gear with multiple functions for your studio monitoring – LittleMc is the solution.
LittleMc2x2 allow you to select between multiple inputs and outputs, making it easy to compare your DAW mix to a reference mix from your CD, DVD or MP3 player, or to audition your mix on your studio reference monitors or your hi-fi speakers with a switch changeover, and with additional Phase and Mono Compatibility test option.
Custom built from quality parts in an elegant (Dark Bronze Mica/Wooden Dark Mahogany Oak) and massive desktop box, with common and really nice (Phase Invert/Stereo/Mono) monitoring functions. LittleMc will not change your sound due to solod state discrete fully balanced circuit, no relation between L and R sides on normal operation mode.
A Big Volume knob by HighEnd 21 step Precision Potentiometer gives a pleasant operational feeling.
Multiple Balanced Connections - 1'' TRS and DB25 Tascam Analog
Balanced 1/4'' TRS (primary)sockets on the back panel provide easy connections to your sources and studio monitoring system.
Balanced DB25 DSUB Tascam Standard Analog (secondary) socket on the back panel provide easy, simple and elegant connection to your sources and studio monitoring system by a single DB25 snake, eliminating and replacing the multitude of 8x TRS cables. No active parts at all and no power supply.

Select A or B Input Source
Allow you to select between multiple inputs and outputs, making it easy to compare your DAW mix to a reference mix from your CD player, or to audition your mix on your studio reference monitors or your hi-fi speakers with a switch changeover .
Phase Invers R side of stereo signal
Phase inversion is a subtle, yet versatile music production tool capable of many distinguished feats. First, what is phase inversion? Inverting a wave’s phase means swapping the location of its peaks and troughs. This creates cancellation when peaks of one wave coincide with the troughs of the other wave.
Stereo to mono- Mono Compatibility test
The word 'Mono' is panned absolutelly center. This means both Left and Right speakers reproduce the same word 'Mono' at the same volume. This also sounds 'mono' and so panned to the middle.
Checking your mix for Mono compatibility as you go is a good preventative measure. Sometimes just because a mix sounds good in stereo doesn't mean it will sound good when the left and right channels are combined into a mono signal. In some cases, you may hear what is known as comb-filtering, which will color the sound of your mix and cause peaks and dips in its frequency response. In some cases, instruments may lose their integrity or even seem to completely disappear from the mix!
Phase Invers R + Mono mode
Reversing the phase of the right channel and mono-ing it with the left and sending the result to both speakers is particularly useful for assessing the width content of your mix and distortion characteristic by effectively replacing the ‘centre image’ with the out-of-phase information.
This provides an excellent way to check mono compatibility and to also learn spatial tricks from your favourite reference material.
Headphone output for Headphone amp purposes
Master signal sent to 1/4" Stereo Headset Jack or to A or B outputs.
Headphone output designed for headphone amp purposes!
Please note! - recommended to use headphone amp due to passive circuit!
Signal strength depend of source power +calculate the -6dB insertion loss of passive attenuator!
Mute or Unmute the master signal
Select A or B Output
Allow you to select between multiple outputs, or to audition your mix on your studio reference monitors or your hi-fi speakers with a switch changeover.
Professional audio equipment intended for use with balanced lines may have a ground lift switch for the cable shield. The ground lift switch eliminates unwanted hum and buzz by interrupting the ground loops between equipment, preventing current flow along the cable shield between two devices. The switch disconnects pin 1 on the XLR jack, Sleeve/Ground on TRS balanced jack.
