ART USBMix4 Overview

The ART Project Series USBMIX4 is a mixer for microphones, instruments, and line-sources; it also doubles as a USB interface with assignable recording/playback sources. It can operate as a standalone mixer in the analog domain, as well as a one-stop shop for recording podcasts with up to two microphones. The USBMIX4 features two combination inputs that take both XLR and 1/4" connections, allowing you to plug in a microphone, a high-impedance instrument, or a line level source. Two more input channels are provided for 1/4" sources, and a 3.5mm auxiliary input for devices such as MP3 players, tablets, and more.

On the output side, you’re given two balanced, TRS 1/4" jacks for your main mix, as well as TRS terminations for stereo and headphone outputs. If you prefer headphones with a 3.5mm connection point, a compatible jack is on hand for that particular purpose. Channel one sports switchable 48V phantom power, while channel two gives you an impedance switch for HI-Z instrument sources. Both channels give you a pad, gain pots, level pots, pan pots, and a two-band EQ.

The mixer can be bus-powered when used with your computer, though in standalone applications, you can operate the USBMIX4 with the included adapter. The unit works with Mac and PC computers, providing class-compliant, plug-and-play compatibility and obviating the need to download any drivers. A USB cable is provided, as is Audacity—software to handle the recording, editing, and basic mixing of audio material.

How do the preamps with gain cranked up compare ...

How do the preamps with gain cranked up compare to other popular USB mixers at this price point? IE, vs Mackie (non-Onyx) and Behringer Q802.
Asked by: Alan
These pre-amps will be in line with the quality that of a Behringer Xenyx mixer. These pre's would pair better with more sensitive signals requiring less gain to avoid noise.
