Small Format Mixers With USB
These mixers are able to double up as live sound mixers or computer audio interfaces for home recording. They offer huge flexibility, especially for solo artists or duos looking to get their music out there, for podcasts and on-line content. Here are some that we really like.
Behringer Q1204USB Xenyx
Armed with premium microphone preamps and robust feature sets typically reserved for more expensive consoles, the next-generation XENYX Q Series USB mixers can handle your live gigs and provide the state-of-the-art tools to make stunning, professional-quality recordings.
Peavey’s small-format mixers provide simple operation with solid features. The PV6 can stream USB as either playback or as a stereo mix directly to your PC / tablet recording software. Direct mic outs make it simple to record using DAW interfaces. The mixer also has a tablet cradle built in!
ART Audio USBMix6
The ART USBMIX6 Mic, Instrument, and Line Mixer / Computer Interface is a compact versatile audio interface that converts analog signals from a variety of audio sources to a digital audio. The built-in low latency stereo digital effects add to the versatility. It can also be used as a standalone mixer through the main mix outputs.
ART Audio TubeMix
The ART Tube Mix provides a compact versatile audio interface. The Mixer supports two mic inputs, one high Impedance Instrument input, and two line inputs simultaneously. The integrated 12AX7 Tube can be assigned to act as a dual channel tube mic preamp, or stacked and applied to the Instrument input for added warmth and tone with guitar or bass. Tube warmth and digital output: what’s not to like?
