The Studio Technologies Model 742 Audio Mixer is expressly designed for use in electronic-news-gathering (ENG) vehicles, small production trucks, and other specialized mobile broadcast applications. Many other audio production applications can also be supported. Model 742 features include four mic/line inputs, four line inputs, two output buses, LED level metering, and flexible monitoring. The Model 742 was specifically designed as a dual-channel audio mixer, rather than as a typical stereo device. This approach makes it excellent for use in "dual-path" on-air applications.
The Model 742 is targeted for use by operators with numerous audio sources that need to be quickly and reliably adjusted and routed to create one or two independent audio mixes. In these days of operators having too many tasks to handle, and too little time to do them, the Model 742 is a refreshing combination of performance and simplicity. Using their experience in mobile broadcast applications, the engineers at Studio Technologies were able to design the Model 742 to include all the crucial features required to meet the needs of fast-paced news-gathering operations, while still providing the operator with an easy-to-use product.
