18-Input Digital Mixer
The digiMIX18 is a digital mixing solution that maintains
all key features of the digiMIX24 in a more compact,
rack-mountable model. The digiMIX18 gives you 18
inputs and 12 output buses (18x12) and maintains the
same powerful real-time live control that give users
instant access to all major functions. You have the flexibility to accommodate instruments, voices and signals
from various sources. Also equipped with Class-A mic
pre's designed exclusively by Ashly, so you know great
sound is always a standard feature!
With its traditional analog feel, the Live Control Surface
allows optimum control with real knobs and a live fader
when selecting important functions, while offering conveniences of a responsive touchscreen, USB interfacing,
and companion Apple iPad® App. Together, it's the ideal
mixing experience.
Modular expandability via optional Dante® and USB
cards which provide 18 digital inputs and up to 30 digital
outputs. Selectable Digital Audio Channel-Insert points
allow you to record, process in native mode, and/or
playback from your favorite DAW using our USB-3018
option card. Useful for capturing or enhancing your live
