Developed by Mike Griffin, a leading designer in analog technology, the MixWizard4 12:2 features a quality preamp guaranteed to please even the most hardcore analog buffs. Low noise, smooth gain, and ample headroom are just some of the benefits that this high performance preamp affords you.

6 Aux sends

The Wizard

A long running firm favorite brand in mixers with clear sound and nice switchable EQ. This one I needed for live TV production so the right features and solid range on the pre amps was important. Reliability under pressure is everything in my world and that good old analogue workflow has a place when things get to be too much fun. The direct outs are perfect for recording for later remix and while I am not a fan of inbuilt effects these are actually pretty tasty - I can see some use down the track. Cables out the back panel and out of sight gives my clients confidence and there is enough tricks on the stereo returns to give plenty of flexibility and plenty of sends to get everything to the right place without clutter. As always the service at Sweetwater is a massive advantage. Love the personal service!
