Item Description

Frequency response: 10Hz-20kHz (+/-1dB) Total Harmonic Distortion Main mix out: less than 0.03% Bus out: less than 0.015% Max. gain (Mic to main mix out): 90dB Channel to channel crosstalk (1kHz): -85dB Dimensions: 482W x 435D x 148H mm Weight: 8.7kg Power consumption: 46W "MPL" stands for "Microphone/Program/Line" and the name describes the broad range of signals which can be handled by this powerful console. In fact, the compact design of the MPL 2242 belies an extraordinary versatility. Add excellent sound quality to the equation, and you've got a product which is equally useful as a live performance mixer, a keyboard submixer, or even a main recording mixer (you'll find descriptions of each of these applications at the conclusion of this manual). Here are some of the MPL 2242's main features: 22 input channels, including 6 stereo channels. The 10 monophonic channels provide balanced inputs that can be used for microphone or line-level input, and the 6 stereo channels are ideal for line-level sources such as outboard signal processors; CD players; tape or cassette recorders; stereo drum machines; keyboards; and MIDI tone modules. 4 buss outputs and a balanced main stereo mix output (a "buss" is simply a pathway through which a signal can be routed). Busses 1 and 3 are normalled to the left mix output and busses 2 and 4 are normalled to the right mix output. This flexible design allows you to easily mute selected channels and/or to create submixes within your main mix. 6 auxiliary sends and 4 stereo auxiliary returns (which can be used as 8 monophonic returns). Aux 1 is pre-fader and pre-equalizer, making it ideal for use as a headphone or monitor cue mix; all other auxiliary sends are post-fader and post-equalizer. Each channel can route signal to up to four auxiliary sends simultaneously. Independent 4-band equalization for each channel, with 15 db of cut or boost for low (80 Hz) and high (12 kHz) frequencies, and 12 db of cut or boost for low mid (800 Hz) and high mid (2.5 kHz) frequencies. Constant level pan controls for placing each monophonic channel in the leftright stereo spectrum as well as balance controls for each stereo channel and aux return that allow you to blend the relative levels of stereo inputs. As an alternative to standard Pre Fade Listen (PFL) soloing for each channel, the MPL 2242 also provides true In Place Soloing (IPS). The IPS feature allows you to isolate a single channel, post-fader and post-EQ, in its proper stereo position and with all effects in place. PFL allows headphone monitoring of individual channels, pre-fader (but still post-EQ). Channel inserts are provided for each of the 10 monophonic input channels, enabling you to use outboard signal processors such as outboard equalizers, compressor/limiters, or noise gates in a standard "effect loop." The MPL 2242 can be mounted in any standard 19" rack (taking nine rack spaces) or effortlessly converted for tabletop use. When rack-mounted, its connector panel rotates to the rear for easy accessibility. The provision of 48v phantom power makes it possible to plug high-quality condenser microphones directly into the MPL 2242, without the need for expensive and cumbersome external power supplies. A flexible metering system allows you to view at a glance the levels of either of the two buss pairs, as well as phantom power and IPS or PFL status and level. • An independent front-panel headphone output with dedicated volume control and the ability to monitor either or both of the two buss pairs. Channels that are soloed in IPS or PFL mode are also routed directly to the headphone output. Input trims for each mono channel are continuously adjustable from +4 to -50 db (+4 to -30 db for stereo channels), making it possible to use the MPL 2242 with a wide variety of signal sources and outboard equipment. Center detents for all pan, balance, and EQ controls as well as detented 0 db fader points, making it easy to use the MPL 2242 even in low-light situations such as live performance. Peak input LEDs for each channel, showing you when an input signal is overloading or near overloading (these illuminate -5 db prior to distortion). • Custom hybrid circuitry that places each channel's mic preamp and fourband equalizer on the same circuit board. This "low capacitance" design results in less noise, reduced crosstalk, and extended frequency response— in other words, the MPL 2242's sound stacks up to that of some of the best mixers around!
