Soundcraft releases three multipurpose mixers
Soundcraft has released an extension of its multipurpose mixer range with three new FX models — the FX16ii, EFX and MFX — each featuring 32 Lexicon 24-bit digital effects.
The new models use the same AudioDNA processor found in many Lexicon and DigiTech outboard products, including the Lexicon MX500. The consoles also provide a user settings store function, three parameter controls, tap tempo and 32 preset effects.
The first mixer in the range is the Soundcraft FX16ii, which features a new control surface layout. All of the new FX consoles are versatile and are intended for recording musicians with its 26 inputs, 16 direct outputs, four stereo returns and rotating connector pod, which allows cables to be connected conveniently behind the rack to save space.
The Soundcraft EFX is a Soundcraft EPM mixer with built-in Lexicon effects. The smallest console in the Soundcraft multipurpose range, the EFX offers a professional solution in a smaller frame size, available in eight- and 12-channel versions. Featuring Soundcraft's GB30 mic preamp (designed for the GB Series), one aux send and one FX send on each channel, the EFX is equipped to deliver sound in a multitude of applications.
The Soundcraft MFX is a Soundcraft MPM with built-in Lexicon effects. The MFX features two group buses, two aux sends, one FX send on each channel and two stereo input channels, all offered in three frame sizes — eight, 12 and 20 inputs.
