The K-Mix from Keith McMillen Instruments is an 8 input, 10 output 24-bit/96 kHz audio interface, programmable digital mixer, and precision opto-tactile MIDI control surface designed for musicians in the studio or on stage.

The mixer features two accurate, low-noise μPre preamps providing up to 60 dB of gain with line and instrument level inputs available from the combo jacks. Each channel of the mixer offers a 3-band semi-parametric EQ, full dynamics including compression and gate, and a dedicated reverb with sends from each channel. Additionally, the mixer offers RIAA equalized phono inputs on channels 3 to 8, which allows for the connection of turntables without the need for a dedicated phono pre-amp.

The control surface accommodates up to 32 channels and all faders, rotary encoders, and buttons offer fully programmable MIDI outputs. The slim-line enclosure has no moving parts, making it ideal for the traveling performer. The K-Mix is USB bus-powered and ships with a 1A USB power supply, a 6' MiniB-USB cable, and a 3' MicroB-USB cable.

    K-Mix Professional Audio Interface, Digital Mixer & MIDI Control Surface is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Innovative, interesting and musical piece. A win. Ive had my K-mix for about 5 months now and have used it nearly every day. I am an analog guy and am EXTREMELY hesitant to use knobless gear in the KM genre. Touch interfaces are just too intricate for me to trust. Nevertheless, I was attracted to the feature set of this unit and decided to take the plunge. In general Im extremely pleased: it works amazingly well, the sound quality is great and Im continually discovering new and musical ways to use the K-mix. When you buy a piece of KM gear you are buying two things: first, a killer piece of cutting edge hardware and second, a relationship with a team of engineers and musical pioneers who are incredibly passionate and competent in their highly specialized area of tech. Its not perfect, but what piece of gear is? The KM team lives on the cutting edge of innovation, so not only are they making brand new kinds of equipment you wont find anywhere else, but they are continually improving the functionality and interfaces of what they make. Ive had three interactions with customer service, and all were handled excellently in a friendly and professional way. (Try calling Roland or Gibson with any kind of issue. Actually... dont.) The KM tech responds in most cases on the same day with dedicated support. My issue was thoroughly solved in each case. (One call was about a really weird problem relating to a firmware update which nearly bricked the unit. We were on the verge of setting up a warranty replacement when the K-mix miraculously started working again. The issue hasnt popped up since. It was reassuring to know, however, that theyre not shy about replacing a piece if they need to.) In sum, Id like to HIGHLY recommend the KM product line and team. These folks are serving the creative community, which is a frustrating and often thankless pursuit! My hat is off to them. Buy their stuff, I will probably get more of their pieces in the future.
