The LMD-1602FX-C-USB is all an aspiring band needs in a single compact desktop mixer. 4 mic/line channels with low noise microphone stages, switchable phantom power and built-in one-knob compressor provide a proper feed for acoustic input signals. 2 mic/line stereo channels and 2 line stereo channels, all balanced, cater for a multitude of stereo line level sources. Eventually 2 unbalanced stereo inputs, either RCA or 3.5mm TRS, allow mobile players to be added for backing tracks or pause background music. For the latter, this input channel sports a new “exclusive” function which leaves only this channel open but mutes all other input channels – perfect to switch between “performance” and “break” times by just a flip of a switch! A musical 3-band equalizer and a 2-Bus AUX system (1 pre, 1 post) complete the channel features. The post AUX bus is connected to the internal digital effects processor with 16 algorithms in 16 variations, a large LED display indicating the choice. Last but not least, a 7-band equalizer is assignable to either the master output or the AUX-pre (monitor) output, for the perfect tonal tuning when required. A USB stereo record/replay interface allows to either record the performance directly to a connected PC or play backing tracks from a PC. Barely any other mixer in this class offers the features and practicability at the same affordability as the LMD-1602FX-C-USB.
