Please note, the Mix-8 is a control
surface, no audio passes through this device. All audio processing and effects
are contained within the recorder so the below information pertains to the
Deva and/or Fusion it's paired with.
The Mix-8 is fully digital, only the
microphone pre-amps, A-D and D-A converters are used for analog connections to
the outside world. Mixing is performed in the digital domain via a floating
DSP ensuring the highest quality, unlike analog mixing consoles where
distortion or channel to channel differences can occur over time or with
The microphone preamps on Zaxcom
recorders are sound studio quality, ensuring no coloration of audio by
transformers or other analog circuitry. The effects are superb, with the
ability to remove hum, buzzes and even crickets by the two notch filters on
each channel. There are 3-band shelving filters with individual control of
Level, Q, and Frequency via the Deva or Fusions graphic interface.
Mix-8's soft knee compressor is one of
the best available, chosen for its natural sound and transparency.
The Mix-8 is a control surface only, for
detailed mixing specifications please check those of your host Deva or Fusion.
