Two New Peavey Mixers


Peavey has added two new, feature-laden mixers to its long-running PV Series - the PV 6 USB, and PV 8 USB. Here's what they have to say about them...
The PV® Series has long been the benchmark of performance and value in audio, and these new PV® mixers reinforce this legacy. With exclusive Peavey reference-quality microphone preamps--featuring an astonishingly low THD (total harmonic distortion) of 0.0007%--these new mixers are equally useful in project studios or live- and program-music mixing situations.
The PV® 6 USB and PV® 8 USB feature effects send on every channel with stereo return, zero latency record monitoring capabilities, and much more, while a USB port allows direct connection to a USB-equipped computer for recording from the mixer or playing back digital audio (compatible with Mac OSX, Windows XP, ME & 2000). Both of these models also include pre-fader monitor sends; inserts on all channels; and dual switchable line inputs on the two stereo channels.
All PV® Series mixers' mid band EQ are unlike the typical 1-2.5khz you find on other mixers, because the EQ set at 450hz. This is the problematic frequency emphasized when close micing many instruments from vocals to acoustic guitars. By removing this specific frequency, vocals are clearer while still maintaining depth and warmth.
All PV® Series mixers include our Tape to Control Room and Tape to Mix assigns, which allow the operator to monitor an external stereo signal without using any of the mixer's channels. In addition, the mixers' Control Room output sends a stereo master output signal to an external source for monitoring. Phantom power, effects send and a contour switch, are also standard on all models.
The PV® 6 USB and PV® 8 USB mixers are available now to order.
