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.
