Small stereo mixer

Post by hawkfuzz » Sun Sep 29, 2019 11:36 am

Are there any compact mixers like the DUDE mixer but stereo in format? All I find are the small desktop mixers.

there is a thread about this ... probably several.

What comes to mind are these hart mixers (a bit weird but they seem to work):



and there is the TC Blender:

Yeah I didn't find anything I haven't seen already so I'm beginning to realize there's a small gap, but it's manageable. I think if I get over compact the K-mix is what I keep coming back to always.

I have this https://www.amazon.com/Maker-Hart-LOOP- ... B01M68UK38

Really good and small if you adjust carefully the gain on each channel...

We do seem to have this thread once a month at minimum. There are lots of small mixers and none of them are near perfect.

Just to add to the list, I am currently using a Zoom H6 field recorder as a mixer. You can change out the mic capsule to something that adds two more channels, making it six channels total. Everyone's needs are different, but for recording and mixing, it's nice to have in the same unit.

I think people are missing the stereo part or maybe not, but all I found were just small mixers and not specifically stereo mixers.

The only downside for me is that the two stereo inputs on channels 7 and 8 don’t have effects sends, just the 6 mono inputs

Boooo. I recently found a sketchbook of mine and it has a mixer concept and I recently drew a mixer to solve this issue so clearly it's an on going thing I want. I should learn how to do it.

Why are stereo fx sends not a thing? It must be stupid to do or something right?

Apparently the stereo inputs on that ART mixer i posted a link to are mixed to mono. Sorry about that.

That’s what I was hoping to find. I appreciate it! The only thing I’d add is aux but this is something I can work with for sure.
