The Soundcraft GB4-16 Mixer sets a new standard
in affordable high-end mixing. It is laden with capabilities and quality
features: GB30 mic preamps, reengineered circuit topology and EQ
designs, rigid steel chassis, high-quality vertically mounted fiberglass
PCB channel strips, individually nutted potentiometers, angled rear
panel that allows patching from the front, and more--above all, the
quality, engineering, and design for which Soundcraft is famous.
The 16-channel, 4-bus mixing console designed and constructed to ensure rugged reliability under stressful tour conditions. All input modules on the GB4-16 have individual vertically-mounted PCB's fitted to the steel chassis.
The audio mixer is designed for performance venue installation or small touring system applications. The dual-mode topology allows it to to be used for FOH or monitor duties, with fader control of group or aux outputs.
Although largely conventional in layout, the Soundcraft GB4-16 does have some unique mechanical features. The rugged steel chassis has a sloping rear connector panel so that it is easier to configure from in front of the desk, while the Soundcraft mixer's integral power supply has a link option for an external back-up PSU.
4 mute groups allow several channels to be muted simultaneously. Another unique feature is the limiter on a set of dedicated record outputs that makes it easier to create a stereo recording of the mix.
The console also features an output matrix with 7 feeds to 4 outputs, fed from the group buses and main L, R, and C (mono) outputs.
The GB4-16 offers a comprehensive set of functions in a small and cost-effective footprint, and delivers the high performance and reliability you expect from a Soundcraft mixer.
