Eventide has introduced The Mixing Link, a microphone preamp plus effects loop in a compact stompbox form factor that fits on a pedal board or in a backpack, and makes guitar stompbox effects available to vocalists.
“Our pedals were designed for guitar but most of the effects really work well for voice. The Mixing Link makes it rather easy for singers to connect to most guitar stompboxes and, with its high quality mic pre, it’s at home both on stage and in the studio,” said Tony Agnello of Eventide and Manifold Labs.
