The MP-M Series music and paging mixers offer unprecedented capabilities for processing and routing high-quality foreground/ background audio for multi-zone retail and hospitality applications, and provides live mixing functionality for business applications that also require live speech reinforcement, including fitness clubs, hotel meeting rooms, banquet halls etc.
The MP-M80 has eight mic/line inputs, eight line inputs and eight zone outputs while the MP-M40 has four mic/line inputs, four line inputs and four zone outputs. Each line input features dual phono jacks (summed to mono) for easy connection to the sources typically found in business music installations.
Both models are equipped with cue bus outputs for auditioning zones and tracks, a USB port for storing and recalling design files, presets and scenes (beyond the mixer’s internal memory), both conveniently located on the front panel. They also include two general purpose inputs for external control triggers, and an Ethernet port for connection to a wireless router to allow your system to gain access to the designer and end user control apps (MP Install and MP Manage.)
Input processing: All inputs feature comprehensive processing including high and low-pass filters, 4-band parametric EQ, a gate and a dynamics processor that may be configured as an automatic gain control (AGC) or a compressor. The processing is responsive and musical.
Output Processing: Any combination of input channels may be designated as sources for any output zone. Two input channels may be designated as priority sources that will ‘duck’ the selected input channel for paging/ announcements or to allow a higher-priority source to take over. There are also processing blocks for auto-loudness, equalization (1/3 octave GEQ) and limiting. All output channels include 12 anti-feedback notch filters with a wizard to assist in setting the filters.
