Simple, 1RU mixer
« on: March 13, 2020, 07:49:09 pm »

Hi all,

I am looking for a simple rackmount mixer for an installation.  Basic requirements are 2 mic channels with high pass, and 2 stereo program channels. The high pass part seems to be the kicker. Basically, I want this:

Without the bluetooth and zones. The less extra buttons and knobs for someone to mess with, the better. Any other products out there that fit the bill?

QSC MP-M40 in the rack, MP-MFC controller for the user to use.  I'm becoming a much larger fan of not letting users into the rack.

You can use XLR inline highpass filters to add that feature to any mixers that don't have it.
-look at Rolls for 1U install solutions to start. https://rolls.com/products/mixers
Ashly also has a 1u commercial mixer amp (that you could ignore the amp part) but it has really basic front panel knobs.
-You could do the same with Atlas, TOA, Crown, Bogen type commercial products but they will be more than 1U

Another concept would be a hidden system DSP with a custom panel of remote-control pots.  Ashly 24.24m, zone pro, Digitool etc in this basic category, QSC Qsys, BSS London in the pricier category.

Maybe posting on the install forum here too might catch other viewers also

Six stereo channels and the first three have mono XLR mic inputs.

You may need to think outside the box on this one, (literally). A search for "in-line high pass" brings up a few options such as this.

You guys are exactly right. Using an inline hpf makes the choices much more plentiful and economical. I'm not sure why the inclusion of a simple hpf is novel in this segment, but ours is not to reason why. Thanks!

I just used one of the Shure inline HPF's at an install a few months ago on the mic input of a simple rack mount mixer. The over all system did not need as high of a high passed frequency as they wanted it to sound some what full range with playback music but the wireless announce mic needed some low end cut from it.

I raised the frequency higher on the filter I got, in the instruction sheet it gives you  resister and cap values for different cut off frequencies.

Nice! I didn't know you could do that.

To the OP,
There is a recent thread over in the LAB forum about what HP frequency everyone prefers. I don't know if it will be helpful. Just an FYI.
