Jan. 17, 2008, ANAHEIM, Calif. (NAMM exhibit #5740, Hall B) — Peavey proudly introduces two new mixers to the renowned Peavey XR® Series powered-mixer line, the XR 1220 console and rack-mountable XR 1212, featuring patented Peavey technologies and extensive digital signal processing capabilities.

Designed for versatility in live-performance and sound-reinforcement applications, the new XR 1220 and XR 1212 feature dual 600-watt power amplifiers that can be summed to the main output (1200 watts) or used independently to power mains and monitors at 600 watts each. Each standard channel includes an XLR input and ¼” line input, as well as a ¼” channel insert, gain adjustment, 80 Hz low-cut switch, two monitor sends, EFX send, and low, mid low, mid high and high equalization controls. Two stereo channels feature dual ¼” and RCA inputs, respectively, and XLR inputs.

The master section features digital 9-band graphic EQ for both output amplifiers, with a built-in Real-Time Analyzer that analyzes the room and sets the EQ curves automatically when a microphone is connected to its XLR input. The master section also includes a built-in patented Feedback Ferret® digital feedback elimination and a digital effects section that includes a range of reverbs, delays, compression and chorus with preset storage. The dual auto-EQ and Feedback Ferret can be assigned to two outputs—left and right, main and monitor, and monitor 1 and 2.

Feedback Ferret applies sophisticated, narrow “smart” filters that find, lock and suppress offending frequencies before human ears can even detect them through virtually instantaneous notching with incremental attenuation to eliminate the feedback. The algorithm continuously checks and rechecks the problem frequencies and then releases the filters when it no longer detects feedback.

Peavey new XR Series powered mixers will be available from authorized Peavey retailers in Q2 2008.
