AT-MX381 SmartMixer for broadcast, sound reinforcement and recording applications 30/06/06
Audio Technica Ltd. has announced the forthcoming release of its new AT-MX381 SmartMixer, an 8-channel automatic mixer designed to deliver instant and intuitive control of multi-microphone installations. Intended for use with both low-impedance dynamic and condenser mics (including wireless systems), and line level sources, the AT-MX381 features 8 balanced mic/line inputs each with individually selectable 48V phantom power, input gain and level controls.
Basic functionality such as gain and level can be controlled from the mixer's front panel. Optional computer control allows more detailed channel settings such as low-cut filter to be configured via PC, using the included SmartMixer software. Designed for intuitive, easy-to-use operation, the mixer automatically keeps the number of open microphones to a minimum, bringing background noise and feedback under control while providing increased clarity and audio quality.
Mountable in a single 19" rack space via integral rack mount, the SmartMixer has a direct output connection for each input, balanced and unbalanced audio outputs for driving amplification systems or other equipment, a monitor headphone output with level control, and a linking capability for 16 units (up to 128 microphones). Its flexibility and simplicity make it ideal for meetings, courtrooms, classrooms, distance learning, worship and just about any multi-microphone situation. Price and Availability
Expected to ship during August, the AT-MX381 SmartMixer will retail at Â£1449.95 (inc VAT) in the UK. More information:
