ART USBMIX4 overview

  • 1Description

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.

    ART USBMIX4 reviews

    USBMIX4 Project Series 4-Channel Mixer and Computer Interface is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Good Starter Unit After first month of usage, I can safely attest to the unit's functionality, reliability and ease of use within my current setup. I'm a hobbyist composer who needed to get first footing into the digital recording realm. Perusal of current products led to realization that a mixer-interface hybrid would be best fit for my context. With limited budget, an old under-powered pc and unwillingness to deal with any steep learning curves; I conducted my evaluations. ART USBMIX4 topped the list. In main setup, digital piano (Left & Right) line outs connect to Channels 1&2 w/ respective Pan controls set to L and R. Drum-guitar unit line outs go to 3&4. Headphones used to monitor. USB connection to pc provides electrical supply. To record acoustic-electric, condenser mic plugs into CH1 (for 48V) and drum-guitar unit's individual guitar out into CH2. The AUX-MP3 IN serves well for my guitar amp's stereo line out when required. Admittedly there is significant hiss when CH1 gain increased beyond middle position with mic connected but I get acceptable results despite that constraint. INST-HI-Z on CH2 is rather bland and underwhelming; perhaps this may suffice for DAW software effect plug-ins for which my pc not geared up. All considered, I am quite pleased with my decision to purchase and have no regrets.
