Soundcraft announces its compact yet high-performance new MPM series of multipurpose mixers.

Ideal for live sound, recording, houses of worship, multi-speaker installations, and other applications, the versatile MPM is available in two standard frame sizes offering either 12 (MPM12/2) or 20 (MPM20/2) mono inputs, with each model featuring two additional stereo input strips.

The MPM's highly transparent GB30 mic preamp, also used on Soundcraft's larger LX7ii and GB series desks, feature high-resolution adjustment over a wide gain range of 55dB, and provides +22dB headroom through the console. True professional 48V phantom power accommodates condenser microphones of all types.

Both the MPM12/2 and MPM20/2 are equipped with three auxiliary busses, configurable for use as effects or monitor sends, and all main connectors are professional XLR-type and 1/4in. metal jack sockets for maximum reliability. RCA phono connectors are also provided for disc and stereo playback inputs and record outputs.

Equalization on the mono inputs is three-band with a swept mid (fixed mid on stereo inputs). All mono input channels have TRS insert sockets, and inserts are also provided on the mix output. High-quality 60mm faders for accurate channel control, an intuitive and comprehensive solo system, and 10-segment LED output metering are also part of the MPM feature set.

The MPM's monitor output and headphone output work in parallel so that performers can still listen on phones while an engineer is listening on studio monitors.

The MPM12/2 and MPM20/2 can each be quickly and easily converted for rack mounting by simply adding optional rack rails (although only the MPM12/2 will fit in a standard 19in. rack).

As with all of its consoles, Soundcraft's focus with the MPM range is firmly on quality build and audio performance coupled with an easy-to-understand control surface uncluttered by unnecessary facilities.

Suggested U.S. list pricing on the MPM12/2 is $689 (or $722 with optional rackmount kit); price for the MPM20/2 is $969.
