Have we already done the Sony MX-650 and the Electro Harmonix MX-3M?

(Could someone write a python script to do google image searches for “MX” + number and evaluate the resulting images against the rest of this thread, to find new and undiscovered minimal mixers in the wild?)

I’d not heard that explanation - the one I heard was that it was a better metaphor: you ‘draw’ the sound out of the speakers/stage towards you; the more you pull it out, the louder it is. Which I liked. Your explanation is more practical, tho…

LOVE this design
if you make a limited run I might cave


#589

I love these kinds of knobs ^^

I ended up going with the Hikari Atten-Mixer. Doesn’t have many bells and whistles, but it’s hard to beat 7 channels in 8hp. It’s worked out great so far.

Bought a Sony MX650 for $20 bucks on eBay after seeing this post.

They’re selling this li’l gem where I work if anyone was interested:

I get a lot done with these two. Definitely helps having the pair, but this is in no way a minimal solution. Leaves quite the footprint. I do like the option of using both rotaries and faders depending on the application.

I think my biggest wish for these would be having an extra alt output on each. I use the Alt 3-4 out as a send… Would love it if there was an Alt 5-6.

Cute! I feel like this could be the same company that made the one Marcus and I have because its name is Mike Mixer too.

While looking up the MX-650, I also discovered the MX-6S. Definitely minimal! Reminiscent of the Arc. :slight_smile:

i love this thing


#599

If this was a 24 channel mixer, it’d have 48 sends and returns. That’s impressive.

There’s a (slightly less well specified) ex-BBC AD145 up for £200 on Gumtree in South London at the moment: https://www.gumtree.com/p/other-studio-equipment/audio-developments-pico-145/1279363570 (not mine, and not bidding myself)
