Getting Started

with Aviom Personal Mixing

Whether you're building a system for stage or studio, all Aviom personal mixing systems utilize the same building blocks and follow the same basic signal flow. All audio is distributed using standard Cat-5e cables, and all Aviom personal mixing gear can be easily integrated into almost any audio system.

An A-Net Distributor takes the digital signal and provides A-Net and DC power for up to eight Personal Mixers. From there, the audio signals are distributed to the Personal Mixers on standard Cat-5e cables using A-Net®, Aviom's digital audio protocol specially designed to distribute multi-channel audio without any meaningful latency and without any hassle for you. It's  plug-and-play simple.

Customized mix control
at your fingertips

With an Aviom personal mixing system, every musician has the freedom to adjust their monitor or cue mix whenever they want—without affecting anyone else and without depending on an engineer. Want more lead vocal? Less bass? Need to adjust the stereo imaging of the guitars? With an Aviom Personal Mixer, it's all just a touch away.

All Aviom personal mixers are designed with the performing and recording musician in mind, so there are no menus to navigate, no soft keys, and no complex programming.

Getting Audio Into the System

An Aviom input module or console card takes your existing audio sources, converts them to digital if necessary, and outputs the stream over a single Cat-5e cable using Aviom's A-Net technology. If your audio system includes a Dante™ audio network, you can also interface directly to Dante.

Each input module or console card supports up to 16 sources in to the personal mixing system. Multiple input modules or cards may be combined in a single system.

Aviom makes an interface card for Yamaha digital consoles, and many other leading digital audio console manufacturers offer an interface option for connecting to Aviom personal mixing systems. For more information, refer to our Partner Products page.

Detailed info about selecting the right channels for your personal mix can be found in this post from the Aviom Blog.

Distributing Audio to Personal Mixers

An A-Net Distributor takes the A-Net stream from the input module or console card and provides multiple copies for individual personal mixers. As a bonus, the A-Net Distributors provide power to the personal mixers over the same Cat-5e cable used for the audio feed.

Each A-Net Distributor can support up to eight personal mixers, but if you need more personal mixers, you can connect as many A-Net Distributors as you need. Learn more about expanding your system.

Mixing and Getting Audio Out

A360, A320, and earlier models of Aviom personal mixers may be combined in a single system, so choose the mixer with the feature set best suited for each musician. Connect in-ear monitors, headphones, powered speakers, or amps directly to each personal mixer's audio output or, to streamline connections from A360s to wireless in-ear monitors, use the Network Mix Back feature on the D800 and D800-Dante.
