Whether your studio is a huge professional enterprise, a compact home project set up, or a full on mobile truck, your studio mixer is the central nervous system for the entire affair. Eventually you'll have to pack that puppy up and cart it off somewhere, be it into the tech for recapping or off to your new awesome location. Either way, you need to protect your mixer so it arrives at its destination in working condition - preferably with the same number of knobs it left with. You need a studio mixer case.
In many cases (pun intended), an off-the-shelf studio mixer case will do the job of protecting your gear at a fraction of the cost of a custom one. We carry many standard sizes made to accept mixers with common track counts and enough variance to allow for a bit of size variation. Trust us, your mixer isn't going to be sliding around in there. Our cases come with customizable foam inserts so you can slot your mixer in tightly and securely.
Your best option for ultimate protection is a fully ATA certified flight case. All units have built in, heavy duty handles and many of our larger formats come with integrated wheels. This is the same rugged case style that has been proven on tour after tour, setting the standard in equipment protection for years. You can trust this same tried and true case style for your studio gear.
More and more, we see project studio gear doubling as a mobile live recording set up. This is in large part to the increasing quality and versatility packed into smaller form factors. These days you can pack an incredible sounding studio into a few road cases. If your studio mixer is rack mountable, we have plenty of great options for carting it around while preserving your peace of mind. Many of our studio mixer cases are water and shock resistant.
If set-up speed is your main concern, consider cases designed to speed you along - once you arrive, undo the clasps and enjoy access to all of your inputs and outputs. These mixer cases are perfect for recording outdoor festivals where speedy set up and tear down is key.
The biggest concern most people have when picking the right case for their studio mixer is whether it will fit snugly. You don't want your poor mixer sliding around inside its case and neither do we. If you have any questions as to whether your mixer will fit properly into the type of case you're interested in, call us and we'll be happy to clear that help! Most cases can accept mixers within a specific size range by including a bit of modular padding for adjusting the internal measurement. Plus, our Sales Engineers can take your studio mixer dimensions and suggest a range of mixer case styles that will fit like a glove.
