In search of an ultraportable, battery-powered mixer, multichannel audio interface, and recorder? Check out the teenage engineering TX-6, a pint-sized powerhouse that manages to squeeze a ton of features into this CNC-machined aluminum enclosure with custom-made encoders and faders. The device can be used as a multifunctional 32-bit / 48 kHz audio interface with effects including reverb, chorus, delay, freeze, tape, filter, distortion, and more.

The TX-6 features six 3.5mm TRS inputs, a 3.5mm aux output, a 3.5mm cue (headphone) output, and a 1/4" main output with an included 3.5mm adapter. Each channel sports three encoders that are completely customizable. Use them as a 3-band EQ or assign each knob to control whichever settings you prefer. The TX-6 is highly versatile and includes tempo sync, an onboard synthesizer, drum machine, and sequencer. There's an onboard tuner, plus you can connect to both a computer or to your iOS device (MFi compatible). A USB-C cable is included.
