Learning About Portable Mic Audio Mixers & Field Mixers

Portable field mixers blend audio signals coming from instruments or microphones, and then send the combined output signal to a recording system or speakers. You can plug portable mixers into the audio inputs of video cameras with the help of camcorder XLR adapters as well as recorders. Designed for the "field," portable sound mixers are suitable for any outdoor controlled environment, including live concerts and on-location shoots.


Using Portable Field Mixers

A portable field mixer can help you adjust your headphone's volume and live microphone levels. It also allows you to control the balance of an audio signal in the stereo spectrum in order to separate different voices and instruments in a mix, thus producing audio with a more natural ambiance. This is known as panning, and you can choose between full-pan mixers and no-pan mixers. These also have low cut filter switches or buttons that help remove low frequencies, which can be distracting to listeners. Most field mixer models have tone generators that allow you to set the input level of field recorders or video cameras with the output level of your mixer. The mixers are lightweight and compact for easy portability. Their design also allows for quick access to various control knobs and buttons for speedy adjustments.


Accessories for Portable Audio Mixers

Take in a single audio source and make it available to multiple outputs with field audio press boxes. This eliminates the need to run multiple individual feeds from the mixers to the recorders or cameras.

Besides protecting your mixer, field mixer cases and bags can help you strap the device to your body, and conveniently adjust the controls with one hand.
