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.
