The LX10 combines the essential Soundcraft live mixer qualities with basic recording-oriented features, in a compact frame that’s light enough for one person to carry yet easy to configure and use. This makes it especially suitable for multi-purpose use in venues such as small halls and community centres.
Housed in a choice of 16, 24 and 32 channel frame, LX10 provides 24, 32 or 40 inputs – with no less than 13 separate bus outputs including mix, 4 groups, a dedicated mono bus for centre speaker clusters, side or rear fills, and six auxiliary busses.
LX10’s balanced mic inputs all use Soundcraft new GB30 padless mic preamp providing 60dB of gain and 22 dBu of headroom. Each input also includes 4 band EQ with two swept mid frequency controls. In addition, EQ In/Out switch and steep 18dB/Octave High Pass Filter, allow effective audio control in difficult venues whilst the six auxiliary sends are pre-post switchable in pairs from each channel, providing a maximum of 4 pre-fader and six post fader. This makes LX10 equally applicable for foldback – heavy performance or in situations where more effects are required.
LX10 groups section houses two further stereo inputs – with EQ, auxiliaries for keyboards or stereo recording devices – as well as two FX returns. All four groups are routable to mix and include 12 segment bargraph metering for accurate monitoring and inserts. Six auxiliary masters on rotary controls also included AFL soloing. In the master section there is talkback provision to all pre-fade auxiliaries and the mix. A two track return for pre-show music are present. A “two-track” to mix switch allows the engineer to play CD’s over the main PA whilst back-stage set-up is going on, with one press of a button. The mix is also routable to the separate mono bus if mono PAs are required.
A USB 2.0 I/O is provided to facilitate collaboration with digital audio systems or computer-based digital audio workstations. Configured in 2-in and 2-out, the USB port can be used either for music playback from a digital source or recording mixed signals from the console to a connected digital audio device.
LX10 is built in a rugged wedge-shaped steel chassis with an internal power supply, professional all-metal jackfield and
connectors on the rear of the console. All inputs and outputs are balanced.
