Samson sm 10 / Swiss army knife for mixxing keys.
by Kevin Brown from Asheboro NC.I bought this unit because I got tired of plugging in to a regular board with power cords etc. I rack mounted it and I can run any channel to any source. it has an FX out and a Monitor out and you ca... read more [+]n listen to any mix in the headphones. I played a gig SAT night the other night . I play Guitar and keys and the FOH said since we were opening for another band. " I only have one channel for you " . so Line 6 stlive guitar I had a monitor signal in the mixxer. All I had to do was turn up the Monitor out on the guitar channel and I had both signals going down the direct path . this mixxer saved my butt. If I didn't have this I would not have had a guitar signal going to the mains. Swiss army mixxer versital. Great signal responce no eq flat response for the FOH man and everyones happy. 2 thumbs up. close [-]

Big Surprise....in a Small Package
by Mike from St. Louis, MOI recently had to re-configure my 3-keyboard stereo rig for 20 min setup and tear-down, and also convert to in-ear monitoring. I needed a rack mixer I could pre-wire and simply coil up the cords into... read more [+] the rack when tearing down. I also wanted XLR outs, to avoid brigding through a DI to the FOH. I looked at several other mixers at this price point thru Sweetwater and elsewhere, ...and overall, found the SM-10 met and exceeded my baseline requirements. It's a great option to have a MON Out on the front and rear of unit, since my Shure PMS-200 has front-face inputs (my next in-ear may have rear-facing ones.) It's even better that the 2nd MON Out can be a MON Bix B. Individual EFX control for each channel is not something found universally at this price either.

Rack space is valuable, and always an important criteria...but I do think Samson could have added some features to this mixer, even it if meant using 2 rack spaces. For one, it would be nice to have XLR inputs on all channels, not just Ch 1 an 2. It would also be nice to have 3 or 4-level EQ for each channel, even if it was a stacked-dial design. The EQ issue aside, adding a rack space to
give more space between knobs....or even bigger knobs....would make this mixer even more ideal. Backlighting active channel knobs, or providing an output for gooseneck lighting would be nice as well.
All in all.....for $200.....you won't be disappointed, in fact, you'll be relieved you didn't have to spend $600 for some features that only mid-price and upper-price mixers have. While not absolutely perfect, you won't find a better rack mixer at this price point. close [-]
by fromI needed a line mixer and this one is a clear winner to me in terms of features and price. I play trombone in a cover band with 4 horns, and I was tired of inconsistent monitoring setups due to the ho... read more [+]rns going to different places every gig (depending on if we were running sound, if we hired a sound guy, if the venue provided it, if they want individual horns or a mix, etc.). I moved the preamping of the horns to a rack for more consistent levels, and the horns don't even really need to sound check now.. I use the SM10 in my live rack for a convoluted yet awesome monitoring setup with an HMX-56. The SM10 was the only line mixer that made the level of control I wanted possible. Basically I can give FOH individual horns if they want it or a mix that I can control from the stage (handy on a lot of gigs). I can control the FOH levels of the individual horns without affecting the monitoring setup, I can control the amount of reverb sent to FOH, I can split the FOH dry mix and FOH reverb into two separate channels, and I can even combine an additional aux input with my HMX-56 output (using the Mix B section). The best thing is that with the turn of one stepped knob on the SM10, I can switch what is in my headphones or wedge back and forth between my personal mix and the FOH mix to check levels, reverb, FX, etc. Working great so far. My only complaints are that the FX send is only available in an unbalanced form and the balanced output for the Mon send is on the front. The monitoring of the main outputs is visible enough at a distance. It's not the most exciting $200 I've ever spent, but it makes me more happy when I'm using headphones, so now I can actually use my hearing protection without compromising my playing. close [-]

Samson SM 10 rack mount stereo line mixer
by Rex Thompson from Brunswick, OhioI purchased this unit to replace a small Mackie mixer that I used to route numerous stereo devices for playback. Cable connections on the Mackie are on top of the unit and even if I rack mounted the u... read more [+]nit the cables would still be visible. The Samson reduced the amount of space needed and allowed me to hide the cables providing a much cleaner installation.

The Samson sounds great. It has plenty of gain and more than enough inputs. I would like to see the headphone jack repeated on the rear panel. I would also suggest that Samson should change the color of the setting indicator from white to some other color. This would help locate the control which is somewhat difficult to identify in a darkened room. I like that each channel has a lighted mute button and that the headphone output source is selectable.
If you are looking for a rack-mountable stereo line mixer the Samson SM 10 is an excellent choice. close [-]
SM10 -- SAMSON SINGLE RACK MIXER
by Len Dobrzyn from Peckville, PAThis is a great single rack unit for keyboard players to expand their sound module use. It does have a few drawbacks. First, there are only 2 xlr channels. I use them to mic the leslie. But if you nee... read more [+]ded more xlr inputs for drums, you're scewed. One other feature they can work with. Make sure your MUTE buttons are NOT engaged when you turn it on, because once you dis-engage them when the unit is on, they give off a NASTY POP in your system! I am talking speaker popping kind!! And third -- One very stupid feature is that the ON/OFF switch is in the REAR ! Way to go! How the hell are you going to access it when it's bolted into your rack! So once it's installed in the rack the only option is to leave it on all the time! The dude that came up with that one obviously doesn't use rack equipment. There are NO treble/bass adjustments. This unit is purely for an expansion unit only , but it sounds ok, and works good if you need to save spaces in your main board inputs and are not objective to self mixing. I like it overall, just disappointed in their lack of thinking it through in the design department. So if you want functionability for this reason go for it, otherwise look for one with all xlr/ts combo inputs. I think their next one up does have these attributes. close [-]
