    Azden FMX-22 Reviews

    FMX-22 Portable Field Mixer is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product This is the first mixer I've purchased for on camera sound capture. I'm using this with my BMCC and a Rode NTG1 mic. All the options I need are there and the price was right so I have this unit a go. It's pretty big for on camera work and it doesn't come with any attachment options other than Velcro. It uses AA batteries which you can get anywhere. Using the XLR outputs, the sound is very clean even at max gain. When outputting with the stereo output, I found the sound to be seriously lacking in low end. However since I only had the one cable and recorder to test at the time, I can't say for sure it's the mixer's issue, but I think it is. Other than then size my only other complaint would be the actual gain is not that high.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value For The Money I use this to cleanly boost the signal coming into my portable recorder, a Roland R-26. It is of decent build and does an admirable job of boosting the signal. As many people are trying to get a higher quality sound for their work, this is one way to do it. You get a quality field mixer like this one with a good transformer, then you can record with a lower noise floor on your portable recorder. I recently did an unscientific test (using my ears) and compared the signal this creates with that of the Sound Devices MM-1 and could not hear any appreciable difference. Although the Sound Devices is built like a German tank compared to the Azden, I suppose Azden had to cut costs somewhere, but they did it on the outside, not the inside where it matters. I highly recommend this field mixed and do not think you will be able to find a better mixer at this price point. The only alternative to this that I can see is the Sound Devices MM-1, but that is one channel less, or the Sound Devices MixPre, which is triple the price of this. However, for my ears, I cannot hear any difference between the MM-1 and this unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality for the price! I use this mixer for broadcasting. I plug my NTG-3 in it and I use an XLR output for the camera. The stereo output is going into my H4. The only thing is that the phantom power button for the 1st channel is broken but it still works. I don't think I'll return it for that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXTRAORDINARY I was amazed at the difference this mixer has made in live mic audio. For decades, I mostly plugged into a sound board, or worked with a sound engineer. Lately I've been booking more live mic shoots, and the sound is always awful. This mixer is so clean, simple to use, easy to carry, and for location,4 batteries. Brilliant! My audio has improved 100%, and at this price, it is a must have, extraordinary piece of equipment!

    Can you use both the XLR outputs and the 1/8&quot; TRS stereo output at the same time?
    Asked by: Mark
    Yes it is possible to use both the XLR and 1/8&quot; outputs simultaneously, but they do not have independent volume controls.

    I am trying to get phantom power to a Sennheiser microphone and split it's signal to 2 discreet channels (at different levels) on my Zoom H6. Plugging the mic into Channel 1 with the Channel 1 switch set to C for center should send mic signal to both XLR outputs? Correct? That would mean I could send those 2 outputs to 2 inputs on the Zoom. Channel 2 level would be set at zero to cut any noise added to the output.
    Asked by: Ric
    No tengo una Zoom H6, pero voy a indagar a ver si puedo ayudarte.

    Can I mount this mixer on top of my Manfrotto tripod or monopod, and then mount my camcorder on TOP of the mixer? I know it's more common to mount mixers on TOP of camera's, but I prefer it the other way around.
    Asked by: John R.
    Hi John,The mixer has no mounting points. It has room for a strap. If you wanted to mount onto a tripod etc you would need a cage to hold it - then you would mount to that.I havnt looked for a cage for this mixer.
