Soundcraft Launches Three Mixer Ranges With Built-In Lexicon® Effects

NORTHRIDGE, California, 25 July 2007 — Soundcraft announces the extension of its versatile multipurpose mixer range with three new FX models — the FX16ii, EFX and MFX — each featuring no less than 32 legendary Lexicon® 24-bit digital effects.

The new models use the same AudioDNA® processor found in many Lexicon and DigiTech® outboard products, including the highly respected Lexicon MX500. With over 35 years of experience, Lexicon’s name is synonymous with the best reverb and processing in the business, providing the finest quality effects ever found in a console at this price level. The consoles also boast a user settings store function, three parameter controls, tap tempo and 32 effects presets.

The first mixer in the range is the Soundcraft FX16ii™. Already established as an immensely popular console, the Spirit FX16 has been offering professional audio solutions to musicians since 1997. Ten years on, Soundcraft has brought the FX16 into line with its professional range by using the latest 24-bit digital Lexicon effects processor and a new control surface layout. All of the new FX consoles are versatile, but the FX16ii will be particularly popular with recording musicians thanks to its 26 inputs, 16 direct outputs, four stereo returns and rotating connector pod, which allows cables to be connected conveniently behind the rack to save space.

Second is the Soundcraft EFX™, a Soundcraft EPM mixer with built-in Lexicon effects. Representing the smallest console in the Soundcraft multipurpose range, the EFX offers a professional solution in a smaller frame size, available in eight- and 12-channel versions. Featuring Soundcraft’s highly regarded GB30 mic preamp (designed by Graham Blyth for the popular GB Series), one aux send and one FX send on each channel, the EFX is equipped to deliver the famous Soundcraft sound in a multitude of applications.

Lastly, the Soundcraft MFX™ is a Soundcraft MPM with built-in Lexicon effects. The MFX is the most versatile of the multipurpose range with two group busses, two aux sends, one FX send on each channel and two stereo input channels, all offered in three frame sizes — eight, 12 and 20 inputs. The combination of a wide range of features and industry-leading Lexicon effects makes the Soundcraft MFX the perfect solution for many venues, including theatres, small music venues, restaurants and houses of worship.
