A Reliable, Rack-mountable Soundcraft Mixer!

The Soundcraft GB2R16 is a new member of Soundcraft's successful rackmountable mixer series! Ideal as part of a portable PA system, or for smaller installations in churches and performance venues, the GB2R16 is also an excellent mixer for broadcast applications. With the Soundcraft GB2R16, you get 16 mono inputs to a stereo mix output, with six auxiliary sends, and eight busses. You'll enjoy Soundcraft's emphasis on operational simplicity with the GB2R16 - not only is its layout clear and intuitive, but it has a conveniently rotating cable connector section so you can reach your connections whether your Soundcraft GB2R16 is on a table or rack-mounted!

Soundcraft GB2R16 at a Glance:
  • Versatile, professional mixer
  • Well-designed cable connector section
  • Built to last

Versatile, professional mixer
The GB2R16 delivers professional sound with its GB30 mic pres and GB30 equalizer design - the very same EQs and pres featured on Soundcraft's acclaimed GB4 and GB8 mixers. You get 16 mono inputs to a stereo mix output with six convenient auxiliary sends, and eight busses that are excellent for smaller installations in your performance venue or church, but equally as ideal for portable PA and broadcast applications. You'll also enjoy pre/post switchable direct output on every input for recording or effects sends. Plus, the GB2R16 has an internal universal voltage PSU, so you don't need to worry about any bulky external power supply.

Well-designed cable connector section
You can use your GB2R16 on a table top, or rack-mounted in a 19" rack, but either way, Soundcraft has you covered for convenient cable access. The entire connector section is contained on a rotatable pod, allowing cable access from the top of the mixer if you have it on a table, or from the rear when it's rack-mounted!

Built to last
Soundcraft built their reputation on reliable consoles, and that's what you can expect with the GB2R16. Careful attention has been given to the GB2R16's mechanical construction: all input modules were constructed with individual vertically-mounted pcbs that were fitted to the steel chassis front panel with individually-nutted pentiometers for overall stronger, more rugged mixer design.

Soundcraft GB2R16 Features:
  • 19" rackmountable mixer
  • 16 mono inputs
  • Stereo mix and mono sum outputs
  • 6 aux outputs
  • Rotatable connector pod for top or rear cable entry
  • 8 busses
  • GB30 mic preamp and precision EQ
  • Switchable 48v phantom power on every mic input
  • 100Hz Hi-pass filter

Perfect Club Mixer!!!

This mixer has all the right features for my needs. For a 16-channel mixer, it has everything else in its price range beat by a longshot. The only feature I would like to see would be an 80Hz low pass switch on the mono output. With Sweetwater's extra year of warranty support and 18 months interest-free financing, this is a great deal!

One of the best mixers categorically

Five years ago I selected this mixer for my DAW-based recording and production studio specifically for it's direct outs. It offers very "clean circuitry", which is to say, it adds very little unwanted coloring. I am from the analog recording tradition but took up computer-based production back in 1983/84. The versatility of GB2R16 serves my purposes exceedingly well.

Great Analog Mixer.

Great mixer. Most output options and settings of anything out there. Looked at the mix wizard but went with this one due to the flexibility of the routing on direct out post and pre eq. Use in the studio mostly. Use this and an AH QU16.

Touchy gains and they seem to change without actually manipulating them. Now the power connector is flaking out causing the unit to drop power before a save is done on some recorded work. NOTHING makes me dislike a product more than having it throw work away. Says "don't open it up" but it's off warranty so I'll try. If I can fix the plug, I'll dump it and go looking for something else.
