Radial's MIX 2:1

Radial Engineering announces the MIX 2:1 is now shipping. The MIX2:1 is a simple yet highly useful mixer that passively sums two audio channels down to one. This enables users to easily sum the stereo outputs of a console, recording interface, or portable playback device down to mono, or to mix any two signals together and balance their relative input levels.

At the inputs of the MIX 2:1, both 1/4-inch TRS and XLR connectors are available, with ground lift switches to eliminate buzz and hum from ground loops and ensure noise-free operation. Each input can be individually engaged or disengaged, allowing you to audition either signal before summing both together.

A trim control is also featured on each input, so if you are connecting two separate mono sources such as the outputs of two mic preamps, they can each be attenuated as needed to match their levels at the output.

Both level controls can be completely bypassed, summing inputs 1 and 2 equally thereby preventing accidental or unwanted level adjustments. The MIX 2:1 has a 180° flip on Input-2 to help solve issues with frequency cancellation due to the inputs being out of phase.

After both signals are passively summed together, they feed a single XLR output that can be connected to a powered speaker, or the input of a console or recording interface.

MAP: $129.99 USD
