Equipped with both mini-jack and 10-pin camera returns, the FMX-42a also features 4 balanced 3-pin XLR microphone inputs with individually switched +48V phantom power. A pair of balanced XLR outputs provide line or mic level (switchable) signal to cameras, recorders, etc.

Additional features include a switchable input limiter to reduce the possibility of overload distortion, Left / Center / Right Pan switches on all input channels, and enhanced circuitry for improved signal-to-noise ratio. The FMX-42a can be powered either by 6 AA batteries or an optional 12 VDC external power supply. A ballistic nylon carrying case is included.

The FMX-42a is an affordable field mixing solution for event videos, ENG/EFP applications, documentaries, and more.
