RCF M18 18-Channel Digital Mixer with Integrated Effects
RCF M18 is the first of the M Series line-up. It has been designed as a practical, fader-free, portable self-contained enclosure, and features an on-board WiFi access-point with integrated internal antenna, enabling all the functions to be controlled wirelessly. This product is a tool for musicians and small combos rather than sound engineers. In particular, guitarists and bass players will favor it, because they can leverage the two high-impedance inputs with a full range of appropriate effects.
The four-band EQs on each channel feature three different modes: Standard, Vintage and Smooth, allowing a wide range of EQ sounds and tweaking capabilities. Up to 15 simultaneous insert effects can be added on the inputs, providing a flexible sound sculpting environment, without the need to bring along additional equipment.
The M18’s mixing engine includes a fully featured connection panel, populated with eight mic inputs (with six XLRs and two combos), 10 line inputs, six auxiliary out, headphones out and two XLR for Main Out. In addition to the six auxiliary buses for stage monitoring or any other external effects, three separate auxiliary buses are available to feed the internal effects.
There’s also a foot-switch socket for internal FX mute or program change, as well as MIDI In/Out, to complement the control options. A USB host port enables the use of external mass storage, such as hard drives and USB sticks, for the internal two-track player and recorder, while an Ethernet port is provided for computer connection when required.
