This is an interesting mixer 22 input channels with 2 output groups plus stereo mix output making it an ideal partner for your DAW. It is widely agreed than analogue summing beats the hell out of mixing in the box which is why this little mixer will improve the sound of your mixes.
Unlike the other ex theatre Cadac consoles the B Series has Mic & Line inputs via XLR & TRS connectors on the top of the mixer. With only 2 group outputs plus 4 aux's tracking is limited to 6 tracks at a time, there are no direct outputs however if direct outputs were added it could be used fully used for tracking as well as summing.
Facilities include :
22 Mic inputs
22 Line Inputs
3 band parametric EQ
Variable frequency High Pass Filter
4 Aux sends each with pre/post/off switches
60 mm Penny & Giles Faders
All inputs & Outputs are metered
Like all Cadac consoles it was extremely well built and produces a great sound, not dissimilar to an early Neve but at a fraction of the price.
The console has been serviced by Cadac specialist Gwyn Mathias who said :
" Like a J series any module can go into any slot,. No circular MIL connectors like A and E, ins and outs are via XLR and TRS connectors at the top end of the modules ( on the top of the modules, not on rear panels like the J).
