Product Information

The Compact Mixing System from Dynacord has seized pole position in this segment of the market by virtue of the quality of its sound, components and features. By integrating a high-quality mixer, two digital effects processors of studio grade, a graphic equalizer and also a professional digital interface to PC or Mac, the CMS mixers represent the ideal solution for a large number of demanding applications in the audio sector.

The mixing section starts with 16 lowest noise, discrete microphone preamps. 6 auxiliary busses, two of them switchable pre/post fader, allow high flexibility for monitoring. The two effects processors offer 100 factory presets, including the already legendary PowerMate-reverbs. A TAP key allows precise setting of delay times. Further, each preset can be edited and stored to 20 User memories.
