Pristine audio quality. A Soundcraft tradition.

For over 40 years, audio professionals have trusted Soundcraft mixing solutions for pristine sound quality and reliable performance.

Comfortably familiar. Incredibly powerful.

You’ll find yourself right at home with Notepad’s traditional channel strip layout. Two EQ controls per channel give you a level of convenience often reserved for larger consoles. A rotary headphone volume fader makes it easy to adjust your personal listening level, while a master level with LED metering provides precise control over your master output signal.
