10 channels for OSX via USB 16/05/03
M-1000 a teeny tiny rack mixer
The 1U rackmount M-1000 10-channel Digital Line Mixer is designed
to give musicians a convenient way to mix up to four stereo S/PDIF
signals, plus two analog inputs, with 24-bit/96kHz sound quality and
convenient automatic sample rate conversion.
With new OSX drivers available for download, the M-1000 is now compatible with Apple's next generation
operating system and the latest crop of Power Mac G4 computers. Now OSX
users can fully exploit the USB audio functions of the M-1000, enabling
them to mix audio from their computer along with other inputs.
The M-1000 solves the tricky problem of mixing synthesizers, sound
modules and recording gear with digital outputs. Up to four stereo S/PDIF
inputs can be mixed, along with a stereo analog input, using simple rotary
controls. The resulting signal can then be output digitally or via the
analog Master and Monitor outputs. The M-1000 even takes care of sample
rate conversion automatically. And with 24-bit/96kHz sound quality and
56-bit internal processing, the M-1000 can be used in home studios and
professional studios alike.
Unique to the M-1000 is the built-in USB port. Using a single USB
cable, digital signals can be routed from a computer to the M-1000, where
they can be mixed with other input channels. The results can then be sent
back to the computer for recording. The M-1000 also integrates perfectly
into professional studios thanks to its Word Clock I/O, with clock sources
selectable between Internal, Word Clock, Digital In and USB*. Multiple
M-1000's can even be cascaded to create the ultimate digital mixing system.
The M-1000 retails at: $695 US
