Showcasing its versatility in virtually every application, ranging from live sound and recording to houses of worship applications, the Soundcraft MFX12â„¢ multi-purpose mixer offers the finest quality effects in its price range. Paul Chambers, composer of over 300 records, demonstrates the professional quality of the MFX12 mixer as he records and remixes for countless artists and most recently completed a 10-part series for Channel Five television.
“The sound of the MFX12 is very warm and the EQ is very recognizable, as it is on all Soundcraft products,” states Chambers. “The construction of the MFX is incredibly durable and the amount of inputs and outputs provide users with countless routing options. Even if I do most of the composing within the actual computer, I still run each individual channel back through the desk to create a warm, analog feel. I also always use hardware compression knowing that there are still the benefits of hands on faders present.”
The MFX12 mixer combines all the features of the popular Soundcraft MPMâ„¢ mixer with a built-in 24-bit, digital, Lexicon® effects processor, expanding the Soundcraft low-cost, multi-purpose compact range. The effects section fits neatly into the mixers compact framework, which is available in eight, 12 or 20 mono input variants, both with two stereo channels and effects send on each channel. There are 32 different effects to choose from with a tap tempo function, three effects parameter controls and a user effects setting store facility. An effects channel level clip LED and Mute function gives the user even more flexibility.
The MFX12 is an extension to Chambers' long time association with Soundcraft products, which began with the Spirit 24/8/2, the Ghost, and now the MFX12. “I began my relationship with Soundcraft over 15 years ago and I have always favored Souncraft products ever since my first interaction with the 24/8/2. The sound is very full and well rounded, and the logical next step was to move up to the Ghost, as the EQ was great for carving out sounds and frequencies. Now as times have changed, a small multimedia mixer like the MFX12 is ideal, as it can be used for routing or mixing through a wide range of applications.”
