Soundcraft Signature 12 MTK Multi-Track Mixer, 12-Channel

Get Soundcraft quality in a tiny footprint! The 12 MTK gives you 8 Ghost mic preamps, Lexicon effects and 14-in/12-out USB I/O for easy computer integration.
The Soundcraft Signature 12 MTK incorporate Soundcraft's iconic Ghost mic preamps, directly drawn from the company's top-of-the-line professional consoles, to deliver extraordinary audio quality with high headroom, wide dynamic range and exceptional resolution and clarity with a superb signal to noise ratio. They employ Soundcraft's Sapphyre Assymetric EQ for perfectly equalizing every vocal and instrumental element in a mix with the unmistakable musicality inherent in every Soundcraft console, plus the GB Series audio routing technology famous in thousands of live venues worldwide.

It includes a wide variety of built-in Lexicon studio-grade reverb, chorus, modulation and other effects and dbx limiters on the input channels. In addition, the console's multi-track USB audio interface allows any VST/AU/AAX/TDM/RTAS plug-ins to be inserted on any input channel, enabling studio plug-ins to be seamlessly integrated with live performances. Accompanying the consoles are free downloads of the Lexicon MPX-L native plug-in and Ableton Live 9 Lite.

The console is designed to deliver pristine recordings. Both have an ultra-low-latency USB interface that flawlessly captures every channel, which can then be mixed or transferred to a DAW for further mixdown and production. The consoles offer XLR and switchable Hi-Z inputs that enable guitars, basses and other instruments to be directly connected.
The Soundcraft Signature 12MTK features smooth, premium-quality faders with GB Series audio routing with read more flexible pre/post switching on each Aux, and subgroups with powerful routing and switching options as well as dedicated outputs.

Both the Soundcraft Signature 12MTK and Soundcraft Signature 22MTK are built using tour-grade robust metal construction and top-quality components. Both have an internal universal power supply.

"Fantastic Console with Great Features!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
This IS a Great console and you will NOT match, much less exceed, its quality and what it offers at this price....period!! All these wonderful features and it's NOT a Behringer or something.....it's a Soundcraft!! You would have to spend At least $1,000 or more to even match its quality and features!! What can I say......BEST of both worlds!! 12 tracks recorded to your DAW at once or one at a time.....thru a very hi-fi usb, so the signal stays uncorrupted. So awesome that you can take full advantage of quality analog pre's, the use your Plug-in effects and ANY other great features your DAW may offer, Then back into your analog console for some good old-fashioned analog quality mixing!! Hybrid recording/mixing is all the rage now.....and for Very good reasons!! I LOVE being able to utilize BOTH analog and digital. The slight drop in volume when the signal comes back out is on purpose....you can Easily regain the volume if you need by various means, the simplest being by simply adding a few db to the track in the daw...."problem" solved!! Ghost preamps are VERY quiet and clean. At first, they were quiet until I raised the gain up around 60% of the way, then I heard a fair amount of static noise.....Finally, I realized it was picking up a fan running in the next room. Now, these things are Quiet all the way up!!! They pick up very well, yet are quiet as can be.....hence, the name "Ghost." Damn good preamps!! Many will argue that the Sapphire EQ is perhaps the BEST feature of all. I dunno, it has a lot read more of good features.....but Damn these Sapphire EQs sound GOOD!!! They aren't exactly transparent like the preamps, but any color they add will be a Plus. Look at reviews online, even the few people who didn't like the board will mention how great the EQs (and preamps) are....Very Musical. The onboard Lexicon effects are totally decent and usable. They aren't the top-notch Best Lexicon has to offer, but they are still very usable and decent quality and will likely get used on your recordings. Various routing options to do all sorts of wizardry to your signals. The dbx limiters work as they are meant to....they are NOT a substitute for regular compression, they serve a very particular purpose. EASY to get setup and recording. All you have to do is make sure you have everything routed properly in your daw and it's damn near plug-n-play (once you do routing and have the right driver downloaded. Super Low latency....NO problems at all there!! Though Most reviews are good, I saw just a few bad ones....nobody complaining horribly, just not what they expected. I have to say, MOST people who don't like these boards simply did not understand how to properly use it or they had problems caused elsewhere they blamed on the board. For the price, I am VERY impressed with what you get with this board....VERY Satisfied!!! You are NOT gonna get anything nearly this good for anywhere near this price.....you have to spend Much more to even match it!! If you cannot make quality Pro recordings with one of these.....it ain't the console!!! *zZounds has possibly the Very BEST customer service I have EVER received!! You Never sit on hold for 20 minutes, they answer SO fast....it's crazy how fast they answer you and are always helpful and nice. Great company!!!
