Full Featured Mono Mixer
The MX101 is a three input miniature mono mixer designed for demanding in-the-field use in broadcast ENG (Electronic News Gathering) and Field Production applications. The MX101 incorporates most of the features requested by news professionals, sports announcers, and film and video sound engineers into a tiny and rugged package.
Three XLR INPUTS with phantom power and front panel MIC/LINE switches drive low noise instrumentation preamplifiers with a wide range of internal dip switch selectable preamp gains from 60 to 0dB to accommodate either high or low output microphones and line inputs. Phantom power can be individually Dipswitch selected for each input and is automatically switched off in the line input mode. Front panel switches activate individual LO-CUT FILTERS to reduce bumps, thumps, and wind noise and bass build-up.
A switched TEST TONE oscillator and a SLATE microphone easily mark takes. An intense LED bargraph VU meter monitors the line output and is easily viewed even in bright sunlight. A LIMIT indicator and switch shows peaks and limiter action. The MX101 provides a high-level line output that will drive either balanced or unbalanced external loads of 600 ohms or higher. The XLR output may also be jumper-plug programmed for microphone level output.
A HEADPHONE switch selects either full program or split program and cue. A recessed, thumbnail operated headphone level control minimizes panel clutter and once set, tracks the MASTER output. A pre-fader cue from input one or an external director’s CUE INPUT from a rear panel jack feed the headphone cue circuit thru an internal trimpot.
An EXPANSION INPUT to the mixing buss allows interconnection of two mixers or the addition of one or more companion XP100 Mic/Line Input Expanders. All panel controls and connectors are clearly labeled.
