Bluetooth Mixer – Citronic CSM Compact Mixers With USB, Bluetooth, Phantom Power, Built-in FX, record & Play Function!
The Citronic CSM Compact Mixers with Bluetooth. Phantom Power, in-built FX, and a Record/Playback facility; is a compact format audio mixer with 2; 4 or 6 mono input channels and a stereo line input. Each mono channel has a combo XLR or jack input; with individually switchable mic or instrument impedance and +48V phantom power for the XLR sockets; allowing the use of condenser microphones that require voltage.
The input channels have High and Low equalisation and Pan controls. Mono channels also have an effects level to vary the amount of internal digital delay effect added for vocals or instruments. An internal player or recorder with backlit display; can accept a USB memory stick containing compressed audio files in various formats. And; alternatively connect to a smart phone via Bluetooth for a wireless link. The output is delivered on a pair of balanced XLR connectors and offers very low noise operation for high quality studio or live performances!
We often have people visit our store on Freeman Street Grimsby who do not fully understand the use of mixing desks (or mixers) and how they work. So here is a brief explanation:
What is a mixing desk, mixing console, or mixer used for?
All 3 titles above mean the same thing! In sound recording and reproduction, and sound reinforcement systems, a mixing console is an electronic device for combining sounds of many different audio signals. Inputs to the mixing console include microphones being used by singers; and for picking up acoustic instruments; signals from electric or electronic instruments; or recorded music.
Applications of a mixing desk;
Mixing consoles are used in many applications; including recording studios, public address systems, sound reinforcement systems, nightclubs, broadcasting, television, and film post-production. A typical, simple application combines signals (sounds) from microphones on stage into an amplifier. This drives the loudspeakers for the audience. However; a DJ mixer may have only two channels; for mixing two record players or CD players. But a small pub or club with a tiny stage might have a four or six channel mixer; enough for two singer-guitarists and a percussionist.
A larger venue or night club may have 24 channels. Thus, it would enable them to have larger bands on stage. These larger mixers would allow for mixing the sounds from a rhythm section; lead guitar and several vocalists. Also, a mixing console in a professional recording studio may have as many as 96 channels!
In practice, mixers do more than simply mix signals. They can provide phantom power for condenser microphones; pan controls, which changes a sound’s apparent position in the stereo mix; also filtering and equalisation; which enables you to boost or cut selected frequencies to improve the sound. Some mixers have on-board electronic effects, such as reverb, or in the case of our Citronic CSM mixers; digital delay.
