Questions and answers about mixers and mixing desks

What is a mixer?

A PA mixer, audio mixer or a mixing desk is the device you use to "mix" the sound from several different audio sources. There are many types of mixers and mixing desks for all types of events.

There are live mixers, studio mixers and mixing desks for discos. A studio mixer is used in smaller studios as well as more advanced recording studios. The live mixer is mainly used for live concerts and other events that require live PA. It is the mixer that electronically mixes the many sound sources and sends them to an amplifier or other destination. The studio mixer is the heart of the process that makes it possible to connect different audio sources to a recording and balance, position and equalize the different audio channels. It is through the audio mixer that the producer in the studio or the sound engineer at concerts ensures that the many sonic compositions become an overall well-sounding product. Live and studio mixers have the same basic functions, but use them differently. The live mixer often has more inputs than the studio mixer, as there is a need to connect more sound sources to the system. The studio mixer has a greater need to get a good signal in and out of a multitrack recorder. The studio mixer must therefore be able to route individual tracks or channel groups to individual recording tracks. The live mixer, on the other hand, needs to be able to handle inputs from many different sound sources at once and therefore has multiple inputs.

In general, there are three types of mixers:

  • Analog mixer
    Analog signal paths that do not convert to digital data. Preferred by many for its ease of use.
  • Digital mixers
    Analog and digital signal paths that convert both ways. Good for touring productions as it has the ability to save settings, making setup from time to time easier.
  • The new generation of analog mixers
    They have USB and FireWire and are a kind of all-in-one solution.

How do I choose the right mixer?

Knowing which mixer to choose is difficult and depends on a number of different factors. Before you buy a mixer, it is therefore important to be clear about what the mixer will be used for, how many sound sources you need, etc. There are so many different brands, types and price ranges, so it is important to be clear about what you need and prioritize before making a decision.

I have a small home studio, do I need a mixer?

It all depends on what kind of home studio you have. For example, if you have limited hardware, want a completely digital signal or have a very fast computer and want to use a lot of virtual instruments, you don't necessarily need an audio mixer. Check out our studio equipment section so you can produce your own electronic music instead.

How many channels do I need?

More than you might think. In a nutshell. It's always a good idea to go for a mixer with more channels than you need, as it helps to future-proof your mixer and it's generally better to have a few too many than too few.

How much does a good mixer cost?

We have mixers in all price ranges, but it's important to understand that you get what you pay for. A quality mixer is expensive, but if you don't have the budget, we'll find a reasonable alternative.

Buying guide for audio mixers and mixing consoles

As mentioned, it can be difficult to know which mixer to choose. That's why we've put together a checklist that might be useful for you to go through before you decide:

  • What do I need the mixer for? Multitrack recordings, live PA or both?
  • What is my budget? Remember that price and quality are inextricably linked
  • How many channels do I need? Remember to think about future-proofing!
  • Do I need my mixer to be highly mobile or not move around a lot?
