Mezcladora de alta Resolución con Poderosos Efectos

The new M-16DX is a breakthrough all-digital mixer and audio interface, with an unprecedented low price. Unlike analog mixers, the 24-bit/96kHz M-16DX offers powerful features such as high-resolution EQ, scene memories, and EDIROL’s innovative Room Acoustic Control. The M-16DX is a perfect front-end for your favorite Digital Audio Workstation (DAW), allowing you to record a track at a time or a whole band at once. It’s great for live mixing, too, with its compact and convenient two-piece design that allows you to put your connections onstage and your mixer wherever you want.

24/96 Full Digital Audio Processing

Ready to upgrade the quality of your mixes? The M-16DX contains a powerful 24-bit/96kHz digital processing engine that provides a transparent mixing foundation. Experience the power of accurate, detailed digital mixing at a price you can afford.

18-in/2-out USB 2.0 Audio Interface

The M-16DX’s USB 2.0 port allows it to work as a multitrack audio interface with a digital audio workstation. You can assign any or all of the M-16DX’s individual mono or stereo channels, and the main stereo mix, to their own recording tracks in your DAW. Imagine recording an entire band at once, with each instrument and vocal on its own track.

Flexible I/O

Digital and analog connectivity—it’s all here, and more. The M-16DX has high-quality mic preamps with phantom power, Hi-Z switches for guitar and bass, balanced TRS connections, S/PDIF coaxial & optical digital inputs, line inputs for a turntable or CD player, audio from your computer via USB, and an mp3 player mini-jack input. On the output side, the M-16DX offers balanced TRS connections, USB audio to your computer, and coaxial & optical digital outputs. It even offers separate control room and main mix outputs.

Sweepable 3-Band EQ Controls

Each channel strip is equipped with Low-Cut Filter, 3-band EQ, Pan, Aux, Select, Solo/Mute and Level controls. The Midrange EQ has Q & frequency controls for precise tone shaping on each channel. With 24-bit/96kHz internal digital processing, the original audio source can be shaped using the onboard EQ and effects with absolutely no loss in audio quality.

EDIROL Innovation—Room Acoustic Control

In a portable mixing first, the M-16DX features a high-contrast, backlit LCD that lets you to see the effects in operation, as well as a spectrum analysis of your mix! Also onboard is the intelligent Room Acoustic Control function, which automatically analyzes and compensates for the frequency response of your studio. It’s fast, easy and effective.

Modular Mixing

Don’t let its small footprint deceive you—the M-16DX is a new-generation mixer comprising two modules: the mix controller for your desktop, and the I/O module, which can be mounted in a rack. Together, these two components provide a wide assortment of connection and processing features.

Powerful Built-In FX

A full-featured DSP effects processor is built into the M-16DX, with COSM insert effects, reverb/echo effects and finalize effects.
