Precision matched stereo volume

Nero perfectly matches the volume of the left and right channels of your stereo signal using Audient's custom Precision Matched Attenuation Technology. Unlike other monitor controllers, this prevents any deviation in volume between your left and right monitors or unbalancing of your stereo image, enabling you to monitor accurately and mix with confidence.


As your studio grows it becomes harder to control. Nero enables you to centralize, connect and control all your monitoring needs from your desktop using Nero's array of stereo inputs. Two stereo inputs let you plug in your interface. The dedicated cue mix provides better monitoring for your artists. 1/8" or RCA stereo aux inputs let you plug in your phone or media player.


Reference your mixes on up to three sets of speakers, independently set and match volume for all speakers and audition and assign your sub to any monitor path. Nero also provides one dedicated monitor grade headphone amp and three foldback grade headphone amps, making sure you're ready to take on the loudest of sessions with crystal clear headphone mixes.

Assignable sub

Easily assign a sub to activate when switching to a monitor path of choice but maintain the ability to switch it on and off without losing your saved preset. Nero also lets you audition the sub on any alternative set of speakers without forcing you to assign it permanently.

Smart touchpoints

Smart touchpoints enable you to customize your workflow on the fly. Easily route and configure Nero's outputs and monitor controls to create monitoring combinations that suit you. Simply hold down a smart touchpoint to put it into setup mode, select your routing options and press it again to save.

Console-style monitor control

Drawing on Audient's vast experience in implementing monitor control in both recording consoles and desktop controllers, Nero features David Dearden-designed circuitry as well as a range of advanced monitor controls. User-defined dim​ lets you customize and set the attenuation of the dim function using the volume knob. Tactile speaker set​ auditions your mixes by quickly switching multiple sets of speakers. Use sum and difference to quickly hear your stereo information and check the sides of your mix. Smart mono mode​ permanently assigns a mono speaker without preventing mono functionality on other sources.


Communicate with your artist quickly using Nero's dedicated talkback mic or any microphone of your choice. A dedicated gain control quickly adjusts the talkback mic with more than enough volume to make your artists feel comfortable when recording. Use assignable headphone selection to route your talkback mic to any or specific headphone mixes and always be in control of your session.

Built to last

With its all-metal construction and obsidian black finish, Nero has been designed to look and feel great in any studio.
