Not much additional information on this one, it seems to have slipped through the press net, but suffice to say that it’s a digital console, e.g. the guts of it are in the digital domain – EQ and effects etc. Featuring 2 mic amps and 6 stereo line in channels, plus a stereo return each with their own 3 band EQ and fader. There’s also a USB connector, making the DIGI818 into a class compliant audio interface. I’m waiting for full information from CME to fill the gaps in this story, but take a look at the video for a first look.

It's no wonder this digital mixer slipped under the radar...

Did I mention it's digital? Because what is really important is that it is digital. Not analog. Digital. It looks analog but really.... it's digital.

why you are being so harsh on him? his native language is not english, but he's brave enough to speak up. korg/roland/yamaha constantly put americans to introduce their products...japanese know the business tricks more than chinese or germans.

Mark my words in 10 years CME is going to be HUGE! They're going through some growing pains now (*cough* Drivers) but, they're on the right track with some interesting products that just need some bugs worked out.

Agreed... I don;t see the point in being so hard on these guys. For such a young company and a short timeframe, they've accomplished a lot! Doesn't Yamaha distribute for them now too? Once the get a handle on what we wnat in a controller (and control surface), they will be huge!

CME from what I have heard, is the maker of the keyboards in the Yamaha MOTIF line.
