Must-have Pedal for Live Vocal Performances

When you put the Eventide Mixing Link preamp pedal at the front of your live vocal chain, outstanding sound is sure to follow. It starts with an amazing preamplifier with phantom power, tons of gain for low-output mics, and ultra-low noise performance. You've got an effects loop that accepts balanced and unbalanced signals, so you can add studio effects or guitar stompboxes to enhance your sound. Many Sweetwater employees are vocalists, and all can attest that the Mixing Link is a smart way to integrate effects into your vocal chain.

Eventide Mixing Link Preamp/FX Loop Pedal at a Glance:
  • A powerful tool for vocalists, guitarists, and bass players
  • More creative options with momentary FX loop switching
  • This is seriously a fantastic preamp
A powerful tool for vocalists, guitarists, and bass players

You'll notice an instrument input in addition to the microphone input on the Mixing Link. That's because it's a capable DI and FX loop pedal on top of being an awesome mic preamp. Singer-songwriters can use it to use one single reverb effect on both vocals and guitar. Bass players can send a split of their signal to the house PA, while also driving an amplifier on-stage. When you look at it as a pristine mic pre, a small-scale mixer, and a switchable effects loop, the Mixing Link is truly a multi-purpose tool.

More creative options with momentary FX loop switching

Sure, you can use the Mixing Link as a switchable effects loop, but you can also set its footswitch to momentary mode. That sends your voice or instrument through the FX loop only while you're holding the switch down, and it lets you create momentary effect "highlights" that help certain lines or musical phrases stand out. While you could never turn an entire chain of pedals on and off in a quarter beat with a typical setup, it's easy with the Mixing Link.

This is seriously a fantastic preamp

Just because it's not mounted in a rack doesn't mean the Eventide Mixing Link won't impress anyone in your studio - just the opposite. In fact, many rackmount preamps don't have the 70dB of gain that the Mixing Link has. And the excellent signal to noise ratio means that's a lot of clean, pristine gain, perfect for ribbon mics and other low-output mics. And there's even a -20dB pad so you can record loud sources without distortion.

Eventide Mixing Link Preamp/FX Loop Pedal Features:
  • Microphone preamplifier, FX loop, and DI pedal, for vocals and instruments
  • Perfect for attaining high-quality vocals live
  • Easy way to integrate studio effects and guitar stompboxes into your vocal chain
  • Versatile mix control with three different output options
  • FX Loop footswitch can be switched between on/off toggle and momentary operation
  • Aux input allows you to mix in external audio sources
  • Headphone output for easy monitoring
The Eventide Mixing Link is a live performer's must-have multi-tool!

Amazing for the price

I wanted a good solution for vocal and acoustic instrument effects and it does that no problem. Was shocked at how good the pre was for what you pay and what else you get. A real gem.

Must Have Tool

I'm always skeptical of "Swiss Army-knife" type solutions -- usually they do a bunch of things... poorly. After playing around with this for just a little while I've already made a permanent place for it in my gig kit. The pre-amp is better than the one in my Mackie board and the switching and routing options are marvelous. It will probably never get the recognition it deserves since it's hard to classify, but if you're a sound engineer or a gigging musician you must have at least one of these.

Dispointing . Hiss with eventide name on it

I would expect a much quiter preamp from such a company. Just plug a 58 straight to a live console and switch to the eventide and hear the hiss coming in. Nice size, nice possibilities but the noise make it good for the local bar jam session and nothing else

Too noisy for me

I purchased this unit for looping vocals. The first unit I tried was very noisy, not practical for my use. When I plugged the unit in and engaged effect, an audible hiss was always there. I actually sent the unit back, and tried another, because I thought that the unit might have been defective. Same thing. I tried to contact Eventide by phone, and they said to use the email contact. I never heard anything from Eventide. Maybe this unit works for some folks, but not for me.
