The new Cloud Z4 MK4 and Z8 MK4 four and eight zone mixers are regular favourites for Spanish integration company Instalso Audiovisuals. Working with Cloud’s Spanish distributor Gaplasa Pro, SA the Cloud Z-series zone mixers are becoming the de facto choice for audio project solutions across Spain.

In addition to a host of functions designed to retain the user and installer-friendly appeal of the Z-Series MK4 from Cloud, latest versions incorporate improved universal power supplies that allow input voltage ranging from 85V-254V. This improved input voltage range allows the Z-Series MK4 zone mixers to be used almost anywhere in the world and with the new universal power supplies also providing an increased output of 600mA, additional accessories can be connected and powered. This allows internal EQ cards, remote paging consoles and external input devices i.e. LM-2 Line/Mic Remote Mixer modules, to be powered across multiple zones.

Comunidad Evangélica de Habla Alemana de Barcelona

At the Comunidad Evangélica de Habla Alemana de Barcelona (German Speaking Evangelical Community of Barcelona) Instalso recently installed a Cloud Z8 MK4 eight-zone mixer and Cloud CXA-850 amplifier to provide eight independent zones of audio throughout the German speaking church. Alongside a quantity of Bose column loudspeakers and multi-channel amplification the Z8 MK4 provides user-friendly volume/source selection and front-end control for the entire system.

Hotel Universal, Barcelona

Instalso chose a Cloud Z4 MK4 four zone mixer as the control unit for the newly opened dining room at the Hotel Universal, located in the centre of Barcelona. Audio sources are connected directly to the Z4 MK4 with four independent audio outputs connecting to separate channels of a Bose multi-channel DSP amplifier.

The multi-channel amplifier provides output to a quantity of Bose loudspeakers in each of the three zones in the hotel’s new dining room. Individual Cloud RSL-6 remote wall controls provide individual source selection and volume control per zone, allowing the hotel complete flexibility for events, private dining and special occasions.

Green Spot Restaurant, Barcelona

Instalso were called upon by Monleon Electronica to provide Green Spot, a newly opened vegetarian restaurant, tucked away on a quiet side street just north of the Barceloneta metro, a zonal audio solution for the restaurant’s vegetarian and non-vegetarian diners.

In keeping with the architect’s minimalist design theme, a number of Bose Freespace satellite/sub-bass combinations are discretely mounted throughout the restaurant, connected to Bose multi-channel DSP amplifiers.

Zonal functionality and control of the overall audio system is managed by a Cloud Z4 MK4 four zone mixer. Audio outputs from the zone mixer are routed via separate noise-limiter channels, in advance of amplification stages, of the audio system to meet the municipal noise-level control requirements of the Barcelona City Council.

“With the ability to provide user-friendly front-end control of entire multi-zonal audio systems and localised input and remote control options, per zone, as required, we regularly choose the Z-Series MK4 zone mixers in our systems designs” comments Oscar Valero, Gaplasa Pro, SA.
