Studiomaster Series II - 16-16-2Another old classic from Studiomaster who ruled the waves for home/budget studio mixers back in the 80's, along with Allen & Heath (A&h) and Soundcraft... This mixer to all intents and purposes is a Studiomaster Mixdown with added MIDI Controlled Muting (MCM) automation.
In fact, Studiomaster pioneered this mute automation, & as far as I know this was the first retail mixer with MIDI automation onboard.... The mixer responds to MIDI Note-On, Note-Off, & Key-number information & reads and writes data to/from your sequencer for muting channels and Aux returns.
4 band sweep eq, 6 Aux's, 100mm Alps faders, phase-reverse, 48v phantom power, and the mixer like previous Studiomaster series is expandable (or was expandable when the units were available) to 40 inputs and 24 tape monitors.
Here's the actual bare mixer unit:
and here's the expansion units...
The main image at the top of the page (and the large image you can open below) has had 2 x 8 channel expansions added and the extra 8 bus expansion so it'd be a 32-24-2 with 24 monitor bus's I think is right.... Crafty buggers eh those Studiomaster boys, they offered and upgrade path for your mixer!
The Series II had a rackmountable seperate power supply which was a big improvement on the rather weedy onboard units fitted inside the Mixdown series.
This mixer was also available as 16:4:2 and 16:8:2 configs.
