Mixer - How to Choose the Right One

A mixer is designed to let you plug in a lot of signal into it, modify the signals, and mix them together into one or more signals, which can be sent to a PA or recorder. One common way in which the mixer is illustrated by the number of buses. kiss is the signal path and allows you to group number of channels and control them with one fader. You can take 3 of your input, mix them together, then the route three signals into a single kiss. You can take a rest Your inputs and routes them into another kiss. That's why you see the mixer is described as 4 a kiss, 8 kisses, etc.

Here is an example, say you do sound check, and you get a great sounding drum. Now the band has come out to set up, this place is packed, and you need to come drum. But, you had 8 drum mics, all the channels different. Is it possible to change all 8 faders with the exact same amount and keep your big mix? Most likely not, but you can route all 8 of the channels into a single kiss. Now when you show up the volume to kiss it, you'll come back all the drums!

Most of all separate mixer channels in the left side, and the master in the right. Whether it is a 4 channel mixer or mixer 32 channel, the control for each channel is the same. You have the input jack, then the preamp, then some of the auxiliary sends, then you EQ, balance, and ultimately control the volume. The signal travels down this line, and then sent to the master. This is repeated for each and every channel. Output master then go to your power amps.

your signal runs through all the switches and knobs. Each one adds a small amount of noise to the signal. Why Mackie mixer a better than the Behringer? Less noise. If a manufacturer uses quality components, you get far fewer votes than if you use cheap components. This makes a difference great and you get what you pay for quality for.The of mic preamps are also important. Does the manufacturer use the preamp $ 100, or artificial in-China $ 1 preamp? There's a reason why the mixer better costs more money.

Some mixers have a built-in effects. This makes it easy to use, but the effect is usually not as good as a stand-alone effects processors. You do not will use this effect for the record, but they might be good enough to live sound.The last thing to consider now is the number of Aux sends. You will need one PRE fader monitor send to each mixture that you want to have. You also will need a POST fader send to any external effects unit you want to use.

So the mixer is the best? Consider the quality of the preamp, the number of buses (which gives a lot of routing options), the number of channels, an additional amount to send (pre and post), and effects.
