bass players. Read More »
HI-END REMOTED MIC PREAMP
Eight input channels are provided with hi-end discrete MIC preamps.
Their 60dB gain range is digitally controlled by the MIX Remote app.
Two line inputs can be switched to a Hi-Z mode, particularly effective for acoustic and electric guitars and basses.
MIX REMOTE APP
The MIX Remote app ensures a comprehensive control of M series mixers: all the processing you need, in your hands. Featuring attractive and intuitive graphics created by audio professionals, the app allows you to navigate between pages and fully control the mixers parameters even while playing. The M Remote app is available in iOS platform.
INTEGRATED DUAL BAND Wi-Fi
M series digital mixers are equipped with an internal Wi-Fi double antenna supporting dual band connection (2,4 GHz and 5 GHz). If the M Mixer is rack installed or used in a demanding environment, an improvement of Wi-Fi connection is possible thanks to an optional external antenna.
Channels that feature a high-end MIC preamp are equipped with a gain digital remote control. A gate, a dynamic compressor and a four-band parametric equalizer are present on all input channels. In the M 18 model each of them has three auxiliary sends dedicated to feeding the three internal effects processors and six AUX
sends for stage monitors or external effects.
TWO REALISTIC AMP MODELING CHANNELS
Designed for musicians. Two line inputs can be switched to a Hi-Z mode and host several realistic amp modeling simulators. Guitar and bass players can count on as many as 11 simulators specifically created for them: Darkface 65 (US), JazzC (JP), Rock 64 (UK), Rock 800 (UK) Crunch, Rock 900 (UK) Lead, Top30 (UK), Modern (US), BassMate (US), BassAmp (DE), Markbass Little Mark III (IT), Markbass TTE 500 (IT). Combine each amp with many different cabinets and explore various sound possibilities, emulating three types of microphone and three distinct positions: near in axis,
near off axis, and far from cabinet (1 m). A wide range of integrated sound options, allowing every musician to re-create his familiar sound without the need to transport heavy and bulky amplifiers and cabinets.
THREE PROFESSIONAL EQ CHOICES
All the input and output channels feature a four band parametric EQ, offering three intervention methods enabling different sound timbres.
You can select among STANDARD, VINTAGE and SMOOTH algorithms, each with two different control modes: either ADVANCED, providing full control on the whole range of parameters, or EASY, with simplified but still musically effective interaction.
EFFECTS SENDS - PREMIUM REVERBS
M 18 provides three studio-grade internal effects. FX1 is a particularly deep and transparent reverb, providing a realistic simulation of large ambients, such as halls, or rooms and plates. FX2 is a professional delay with a tap time up to 1300 ms and low pass filter (LPF) on the return signal, thus creating interesting sounds and complex tapping effects. FX3 is an assignable multieffect with several choices: chorus, flanger, pitch shifter, among the others.
Six input channels are equipped with digital insert points on their audio path. M 18 permits most demanding musicians to insert up to 15 simultaneous effects. These resources not only offer distortion, vintage delay, chorus, flanger, but also classic guitar amps modeling created by the well-known software house Overloud. For bass players, the flagship emulation of the Markbass amplifiers is included.
OUTPUT CHANNELS PROCESSING
The six auxiliary sends of the M 18 are provided with a dynamics compressor/limiter and a four-band parametric equalizer on their signal path. Furthermore the master out channel can benefit from stereo Graphic EQ, Tube Warmer and Xciter plug-ins in order to better process your final mix.
INSERT MANAGEMENT THROUGH MIX REMOTE APP
On M 18 model MIC channels 5 and 6 have two insert points, as MIC/LINE 7 and 8, whereas LINE channels 9 and 10 have 4 insert points available. Thanks to an intuitive graphic interface, it is easy to tap the resources of the effects and insert them into the channels, enjoying great sound shaping plug-ins.
INTERNAL AUDIO PLAYER/RECORDER
Special functions of M series digital mixers are stereo audio play and record, compatible with WAV, MP3 and AIFF files that can be loaded from a USB stick. A USB socket is present on the rear panel of both M 18 and M 08. Playlist management of your favourite tracks is made easy. Even the most complex playlists can be handled from a special page.
