Cerwin-Vega has brought out a new line of professional audio mixers designed for live performance and recording applications.
Available in ten (CVM1022), 12 (CVM1224) and 16-channel (CVM1624) versions, the range offers features such as digital sound effects processing and USB input/output for laptop computer playback and recording. Built using "premium-grade" components, the mixers are equipped with a "commercial-grade" metal housing, while clear markings and colour-coordinated knobs also allow for intuitive operation, including fast adjustment and easy operation in low-light situations.
With "professional studio quality" microphone inputs, dedicated gain controls and switchable phantom power, the CV mixers can accommodate virtually any microphone, while The Insert, AUX and EFX sends allow them to connect to external dynamics, equalisation and effects units. The peak LED indicator allows a user to check on the signal input of each channel and the mixers also feature Tape In and Rec Out RCA jacks, which enable users to directly connect to a CD/MP3 player or audio recorder.
