The FX 16ii console from Soundcraft is a 19" rackmountable mixer with a total of 26-inputs and integrated Lexicon FX processor that makes it suited to a variety of applications. It is built around the same AudioDNA® processor featured in many of the Digitech® and Lexicon outboard products, including the Lexicon MX300 processor. Other features include 32 FX settings, tap tempo, FX store settings, three-band EQ with swept midband, integral universal power supplies, and rugged construction. The console offers a combination of live and recording features; each channel has a direct output that is individually switchable pre- or post-fader to enable use with 16-track recording systems. Incorporating the latest PCB surface-mount technology, the unit can be optionally rackmounted into a 10U space via a dual-position connector pod that allows cables to be connected behind the rack.
