New York, NY (December 20, 2017)—First announced at Infocomm, Audio-Technica has shipped its ATDM-0604 Digital SmartMixer, a new six-channel automatic mixer intended for meetings, conferences, soft codec applications, courtroom proceedings, radio and TV broadcasts.
Priced at $899, the SmartMixer allows channels to be mixed automatically in gate or gain sharing mode, providing consistent audio output from all inputs in a setup.
Controls and LED indicators on the mixer’s front panel allow input/output and gain level adjustment; use of presets; the ability to employ phantom power, low-cut filter, automatic mixing and acoustic echo cancellation (AEC); change IP configuration (Auto or Static); and more.
Digital signal processing is available for inputs and outputs, including parametric EQ, compressor, limiter and feedback control.
Control and monitoring tools are accessible locally on the front panel or via the Web Remote interface, which allows users to make adjustments from a Windows-based PC, Mac, iOS or Android device, plus make additional changes to the input and output settings, select gate or gain sharing mode when using Smart Mix, and adjust other advanced settings.
The mixer is equipped with four balanced microphone inputs, two balanced Mic/Line inputs and one unbalanced stereo input, along with two balanced and two unbalanced outputs. Network (Cat 5e or better) and USB ports are also included, as are A/B Audio-Technica Link ports that let users connect six ATDM-0604 mixers via Cat5e cable for simultaneous use within an expanded setup.
