Zaxcom begins shipping Deva Mix-12

Zaxcom has begun shipping its Deva Mix-12, a fully digital 12-fader control surface that directly manages the audio mixer embedded within the Zaxcom Deva IV and V location recorders. Combined with either model, the Deva Mix-12 performs all location mix and record functions, reducing production costs by eliminating the need for external mixing consoles.

The Deva Mix-12 features 16 inputs and 18 outputs (20 when paired with the Deva V), and features studio-quality microphone pre-amps. To ensure no coloration or distortion by transformers or other analog circuitry, only the pre-amps and A-D and D-A converters are used for analog connections to the outside world. Mixing is performed digitally via a floating-point DSP, ensuring no distortion or channel-to-channel differences. Users will have the ability to remove hum and buzz with the two notch features on each channel, a capability that can save precious time and money on a shoot. The Deva Mix-12 also features three-band shelving filters with level, Q and frequency control via the Deva IV or V's graphic interface.

Other features of the Mix-12 include 12 fader strips, providing instant access to bus routing and effects, and an input port that directly controls the gain of the mic preamp as well as the P&G fader. An LED input meter is provided on each channel strip to augment the Deva's full-color output metering. The Deva Mix-12 also comes with a soft-knee compressor for natural sound and transparency.
