Soundcraft LX7ii 32 Channel Mixer
Soundcraft LX7ii 32 Channel Mixer
The LX7ii is totally re-engineered with genuine Soundcraft technology for unrivalled sonic performance. The LX7ii can handle both FOH and monitors, making it ideal for live sound applications in small to medium-sized venues. And direct channel outputs allow for simple connection of multitrack recording equipment, making the LX7ii equally at home in the studio.
MONO INPUT CHANNEL
A balanced XLR connector accepts balanced or unbalanced mic signals.
The balanced 1/4" jack allows connection of balanced or unbalanced electronic instruments, such as keyboards.
+48V Phantom Power
+48V Phantom Power is available switched in blocks of 4 for condenser mics and active DI boxes.
LX7ii’s exclusive GB30 padless mic preamp provides up to +15dBu input capability with the input gain control operating between 5dB and 60dB on all mic inputs.
High Pass Filter
A steep 18dB per Octave High Pass Filter is included straight after the preamp to reduce low frequency rumble on stage and clean up vocal performances.
A pre-fade, pre-EQ (but post-HPF) insert point is provided for patching in Limiters, Graphic Equalisers or other signal processors. It may also be used for recording.
A direct output is also available on all but the last 8 channels with individual pre/post fader switching situated in the EQ section. This allows LX7ii’s direct outputs to be equally useful for effects send applications or multitrack tape feeds.
LX7ii’s new GB30, 4 band equaliser section is based on that used in the high-end MH Series. Both the HF and LF shelving sections have steeper slopes than usual which substantially reduces mid frequency harshness in the HF band and muddiness in the LF. This increase in “cleanliness” of
response is further enhanced by an element of undershoot and overshoot in the boost/cut response. It has two swept mid frequencies carefully selected for optimum control during live performances. All bands provide 15dB of cut or boost. The Low frequency EQ response shelves at 80Hz. The swept Lo Mid control operates between 80Hz and 1.9kHz. The swept Hi Mid control operates at frequencies between 550Hz and 13kHz. The fixed High frequency EQ response shelves at 13kHz.
The EQ section can be bypassed using the EQ switch, allowing comparison of treated and untreated sounds without having to reset controls.
6 flexible auxiliary sends allow the choice of either monitor or effects orientated mixes. Auxes 1-4 are normally post-fader, post-EQ but can be switched in pairs from each channel to be pre-fader, post-EQ. Auxes 5 and 6 are always post-fader, post-EQ. In this way a maximum of 4 pre-fader foldback mixes or 6 post-fader effects sends are possible.
Level Control and Routing
Each input channel can be routed to Mix, the separate Centre (Mono) bus, and/or any of the 4 Groups in pairs.
Turning the pan control full left or right enables odd or even groups or the left or right Mix bus to be accessed individually.
Each channel can be soloed pre-fader, post-EQ to check gain levels.
The PFL indicator LED also doubles as a PEAK indicator, illuminating 4dB before clipping occurs to make the maximum headroom available. 100mm Fader
Professional-grade 100mm faders provide accurate, consistent control of audio levels and have superb cut-off performance.
STEREO INPUT SECTION
Two stereo inputs allow stereo sources such as CD players, keyboards or samplers to be connected. Alternatively, they may be used as sophisticated effects returns.
2 balanced pairs of line inputs allow the stereo inputs to be accessed.
