DV ProMix 6 - A Popular 6-channel Mixer from PSC
Rugged build & advanced features at an attractive price
By Moses Silberstein
| We all know having the proper tools is essential when recording audio in the field. None of us want to face the scenario of finding ourselves on location with more miked-up talent than audio inputs. The PSC DV ProMix 6, with its six channels, helps reduce the chances of getting caught with a mixer that’s not up to the task at hand.
Extremely versatile, yet rugged, the portable ProMix 6 is designed to hold up well to the use and abuse common to working on location. The unit also features super quiet microphone preamps with 128dB signal-to-noise ratio, meaning cleaner captured audio and less editing work during post-production.
The unit comes with other features rarely found at this price point: dual camera support allowing for matched sound when shooting simultaneously with two cameras; bright peak LED indicators, which you’ll appreciate the first time you use the mixer under bright lighting conditions; individual direct-line outputs; three-way channel pan switches, for panning between left, right, and center, and handy pre-fade listen switches for all channels. Add to that low cut filtering and the PSC DV ProMix 6 starts to look very attractive.
The entire show runs on 8-AA batteries, so ‘juicing up’ is easy, no matter where your assignment takes you. The PSC DV ProMix 6 is available on the B&H website - a full production case is included.
B&H also offers the DV ProMix 6 Deluxe Field Mixer Kit -- A complete portable mixer package for the location sound professional. It includes all the components needed to compliment the DV ProMix 6, including: Porta Brace custom case, Porta Brace wireless microphone case, Versa-Flex shoulder harness, 25 ft. Breakaway cable, Cable carrier and batteries.
