Soundcraft Unveils Signature Multi-Track Recording/Analog Mixing Consoles

The Signature 22MTK and Signature 12MTK incorporate Soundcraft's iconic Ghost mic preamps

Harman’s Soundcraft introduces Signature 22MTK and Signature 12MTK analog mixing consoles, providing 22 and 12 input channels, respectively, as well as integrated multi-track USB interfaces.

Both small-format consoles also offer onboard Lexicon effects, Soundcraft’s Ghost microphone preamps and many additional enhancements.

“Our new Signature 22MTK and Signature 12MTK are powerful all-in-one consoles that make it easy to both record and mix musical performances,” says Sean Karpowicz, Soundcraft product manager. “They’re ideal for recording live gigs and studio rehearsals, mixing a band, producing a demo, integrating pre-recorded playback with live performance or remixing previous multi-track recordings.”

The Signature 22MTK and Signature 12MTK 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 equalizing every vocal and instrumental element in a mix with musicality, plus the GB Series audio routing technology utilized in thousands of live venues worldwide.

Both models include a variety of built-in Lexicon studio-grade reverb, chorus, modulation and other effects, with 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 Soundcraft Signature 22MTK and Signature 12MTK have low-latency USB interfaces that capture every channel, which can then be mixed or transferred to a DAW for further mixdown and production. The consoles also offer XLR and switchable Hi-Z inputs that enable guitars, basses and other instruments to be directly connected.

Both are equipped with premium-quality faders with GB Series audio routing with flexible pre/post switching on each aux, and subgroups with routing and switching options as well as dedicated outputs. The Signature 22MTK and Signature 12MTK are built using tour-grade robust metal construction and top-quality components. Both have an internal universal power supply.
