    The KL-8™ is a rackmount keyboard mixing station designed to provide complete control

    over a professional keyboard setup, both on stage and in the studio. You can connect up to

    four analog keyboards in mono or stereo, each with an individual level control to adjust the

    balance between them. An aux send/receive is also available to feed effects pedals or rackmount

    reverbs and delays, or it can be used as an additional stereo input for a fifth keyboard.

    MIDI and USB connections make it easy to control a laptop soft-synth, utilizing the KL-8's

    high-quality 24bit/192kHz digital audio converters. Dual USB connections provide the ability

    to employ redundant laptop systems.

    The SW8-USB™ eliminates the need to have digital audio interfaces accompany each computer.

    Dual USB inputs with separate 24bit/192 kHz 8 digital to analog converter cards allow

    two computers to be connected in tandem. Both computers will see the SW8-USB as an available

    audio and MIDI interface, allowing for instant connection of both digital workstations.

    MTC can be passed between both computers, providing easy start/stop synchronization between

    them. Eight channels of transformer-isolated XLR and ¼" outputs are included, with

    the ability to switch between mic-level and +4dBu line level. With the SW8-USB, switching

    between playback rigs has never been easier, or more streamlined!

    The AC-Driver™ is a small but powerful preamp for acoustic instruments on stage. EQ and

    volume adjustments provide you with complete control over your tone in a rugged steel

    chassis with heavy duty components that will withstand the harshest touring environments.

    A variable low-cut filter removes excessive low frequencies, along with a notch filter and a

    180° polarity reverse switch to help eliminate feedback. A balanced XLR output feeds the PA

    system or a powered speaker, while a ¼" output can be used to simultaneously connect to an

    amplifier. The AC-Driver also features an always-on ¼" tuner output and a dedicated Mute

    footswitch, allowing for silent tuning on stage.

    The Catapult Mini™ is the latest addition to the Catapult modular snake system,

    which allows you to drive four analog audio channels over a single shielded CAT 5 cable. This

    eliminates the need for bulky and expensive multi-pair audio cable runs, and allows contractors

    to take advantage of pre-wired networks to connect from one room to another. The

    Catapult Mini TX™ and the Mini RX™ can be used together as a pair, or they can be individually

    matched with any other Catapult stage box. For instance, you can use a Catapult TX4M™

    on stage to split four mic lines to feed the monitor console, while utilizing a Catapult Mini RX

    to receive the signal at the FOH console.

    MIX 2:1™

    Summing Mixer

    The MIX2:1 is a simple yet highly useful mixer that passively sums two audio channels down to one. This enables you to easily sum the stereo outputs of a console, recording interface, or portable playback device down to mono, or to mix any two signals together and balance their relative input levels.

    At the inputs of the MIX 2:1, both ¼" TRS and XLR connectors are available, with ground lift switches to eliminate buzz and hum from ground loops and ensure noise-free operation. Each input can be individually engaged or disengaged, allowing you to audition either signal before summing both together.
