Digitool MX16

The Digitool MX16, MX32 and Live are a family of digital audio processing units built on the rich history of the original Digitool MX and designed for the audio professional. These products have the power and flexibility to perform loudspeaker management functions in addition to matrix mixing, room combining and other audio processing functions for installed and portable sound systems. Each model features a full-color display screen, front navigation and editing controls, front panel input and output mute buttons and LED meters to simply configuration. They can also be configured using a Windows application via USB or Ethernet. Each analog input channel includes switchable 48V phantom power. Eight Control Voltage (CV) inputs are included, and can be programmed as level and mute controls per channel. RS-485 serial communication is provided for external control of level, mute and preset recall. An entire Ethernet control protocol is also available to allow external control via the Digitool’s Ethernet connection. Processing functions include full matrix routing and level control at each cross-point, input and output filters, crossover filters to the fourth order (including Butterworth, Bessel and Linkwitz-Riley alignments), delay up to 2.5 seconds on each input and output, gate and compressor on each input and compressor/limiter on each output, digitally controlled analog input and output level controls, four audio-triggered priority mute busses, automix capability and preset storage and recall.
