M-1000

Digital Line Mixer

M-1000
Discontinued

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.

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.
