Sound Live 12

12-Channel / 2-Bus Tabletop Mixer


The Sound Live 12 is a compact 12-channel/2-bus tabletop mixer that easily handles all the equipment, switching and signal shaping you need to produce first-rate recordings, without the expense, bulk and inconvenience of an overly-complicated studio console.

Among the full roster of professional-caliber features are 7 XLR inputs with ultra-clean sounding Marantz Professional mic pre-amps, Dynamic compression (channels 1 to 4) 60mm faders with mute switch, 100 studio-grade digital effects and a 9-band EQ for main and monitor outputs.

It all adds up to a space-saving desktop mixer with no-compromise audio performance and connection versatility that results in top-quality productions coupled with unsurpassed ease-of-use.
