Peavey Electronics started shipping its Peavey FX2 Series mixers in Europe. With twice the processing power of the original FX Series, these mixers feature new, Peavey-exclusive technology to enhance live sound reproduction and project studio recording.
Stocked with all the features for pro mixing, the affordable FX2 series includes 48 V phantom power and Silencer microphone preamps, which allow very high gain with low noise and distortion for clear signal reproduction. The 3-band EQ offers sweepable mid-frequency and variable low cut filters. The four pre-fader auxes per channel provide four monitor mixes, while the two post-fader auxes can be used for adding effects (built-in or outboard).
These mixers also include dual DSP engines that allow multiple simultaneous effects assignable to any channel via aux 5/6. Onboard effects include reverb, reverb enhanced, delay, compression, expander, de-esser, chorus, flanger, tube emulator, vocal enhancer and gate.
The digital output processing section includes Ferret Feedback Eliminator, dual 5-band Parametric EQ or dual 28-band Graphic EQs, digital delay lines, and dynamics/limiters. The output section can be configured for Stereo, Dual Mono or Subwoofer mode with a built-in electronic crossover.
The FX2 series features dual USB 2.0 ports. The “A” USB connector allows streaming of digital audio directly to a computer or memory stick as well as exclusive, built-in MP3 compression. You can record your rehearsals, songwriting sessions or live performances directly to an inexpensive USB stick – no other hardware needed. USB 2.0 “B” connection allows for streaming digital out.
There is a choice of 16, 24 (pictured below), or 32 input channels including two stereo channels with dual mic/line inputs respectively. The all new switching power supply design is more efficient than the original.
