A New Type of Mixer for Today's Digital World.

The M-1000 10-channel Digital Line Mixer is a 1U rackmount mixer designed to mix digital signals of varying sample rates. The M-1000 comes with four stereo S/PDIF digital inputs and a stereo analog input-all with 24-bit/96kHz sound quality-making it perfect for mixing electronic musical instruments and recording gear equipped with digital outputs. The M-1000 can even mix audio from a PC via its USB port. Word Clock is also provided, and multiple units can be linked for greater mixing power.

  • - 10-channel digital line mixer in space-saving 1U chassis
  • - 4 stereo digital inputs (coaxial/optical) and stereo analog input (1/4" phone)
  • - USB port for mixing digital audio from a PC
  • - Superb 24-bit/96kHz sound quality and 56-bit processing throughout
  • - Professional Word Clock I/O and automatic sample rate conversion
  • - Coaxial and optical digital outputs, plus analog Master outputs (XLR) and Monitor output (1/4" phone)

Mix Multiple Digital Sources with Professional Quality!

Today's synthesizers, sound modules and recording gear often feature digital outputs, but musicians have never had a way to mix all these sources at once. That's where the M-1000 comes in. This 1U rackmount mixer can mix up to four stereo digital signals of varying sample rates-along with a stereo analog input and digital audio from a PC-with professional 24-bit/96kHz sound quality.

Take a look at the back panel, and you'll find four S/PDIF digital inputs and a stereo analog input with high-quality A/D converters. That's a total of 10 input channels that can be mixed-regardless of sample rate-using the front panel knobs. The result can be output via coaxial and optical digital outputs or the M-1000's analog Master and Monitor outputs.

USB Port for PC-Based Recording

The M-1000 even lets you integrate your USB-equipped PC into the mix. Using a USB cable, you can route digital signals from a computer into the M-1000, where they can be mixed with other input channels. The results can then be sent back out to the computer for recording. The M-1000 supports sample rates up to 96kHz-even via USB-so there's never been a better or easier solution for computer-based recording.

Flexible Sync Options and Expandable Design

With its Word Clock input and output, the M-1000 can be easily integrated into professional studios. The clock source itself is selectable among internal, word clock, digital in and USB* for maximum flexibility. And with its pro quality specs-including pristine 24-bit/96kHz AD/DA converters and 56-bit internal processing—the M-1000 can be used in a range of applications from home studio setups to world class recording and editing suites. Best of all, multiple M-1000s can be cascaded for situations when additional inputs are required.

*At 96kHz, it is not possible to send audio in and out simultaneously via USB.
