The Digitool MX 16-Channel Digital Audio Processor from Peavey features an 8 input, 8 output configuration designed primarily for small to medium fixed installation projects. The digital audio processor works well for processes that do not require the complexity of MediaMatrix products, or the need for transferring audio over a network.

The Digitool Digital Audio Processor is designed for the audio professional. This unit has the power and flexibility to perform loudspeaker management functions in addition to matrix mixing, room combining, and other audio processing functions for installed and portable sound systems. The processor features a full-color display screen, front navigation and editing controls, front-panel input and output mute buttons, and LED meters to simplify configuration. It can also be configured using a Windows application via USB or the Ethernet.

    Audio Inputs Circuitry: Balanced

    Max Input Level: 24 dBu (determined by sensitivity setting)

    Max Sensitivity for Full Scale: -40 dBu

    Source Select: Microphone / Line
    AES-R (even channels)
    AES-L (odd channels)

    Sensitivity Settings: -39 to 24 dBu in 0.5 dB steps

    Input Impedance:
    24 to -6 dBu Sensitivity Setting = 10k balanced (line)
    -7 to -40 dBu Sensitivity Setting = 2.2k balanced (microphone)

    Phantom Power: +48 V, enabled per channel

    Crosstalk: Better than 70 dB (@ 1 kHz)

    Common Mode Rejection: Better than 70 dB (@ 1 kHz)

    Equivalent Input Noise (EIN):
    -124 dBu 150 Ω source
    22 Hz to 22 kHz un-weighted

    ADC Dynamic Range: 109 dB un-weighted

    112 dB A-weighted
    Audio Outputs Circuitry: Enhanced servo balanced

    Maximum Output Level: 24 dBu (determined by output level setting)

    Max Output Level Settings: -24 to 24 dBu

    Output Impedance:
