      Rane MLM 65 Rack Mic/Line Mixer (108088642)

Easily mix a variety of audio sources, from multiple mics to a keyboard or turntable, and get professional results.

The Rane MLM 65 Mic/Line Mixer is designed for easy manual mixing of up to 6 mic/line inputs and playback of one of several stereo audio sources, including modern USB audio and old-school vinyl. Simultaneous digital audio recording of the manual mix to S/PDIF, TOSLINK, and/or USB audio provides a formidable mixing ally in today's audio world. The MLM 65 features and topology are simple for non-technical operators, and it's dedicated USB Charge port supports todays MP3 players.

The MLM 65 provides 6 manually mixed mic/line XLR inputs each with a front panel Pan and Fader Level control, plus a window slot atop each input for installer-created labels. These inputs also have independent rear panel screwdriver Gain trims, Overload indicators, 12V Phantom Power, and Mic/Line switches.

One of six stereo Aux inputs is selectable on the front panel with a Level fader for the selected source being mixed. A single, large-window slot for installer-created Aux source labels makes operation simple for newbies. The stereo Aux inputs include five consumer RCA inputs each with screwdriver input gain trim. The Aux 1 input provides an additional 3.5mm stereo TRS jack and an adjacent dedicated USB Charge port for an iPod or other USB-powered audio device.

For audio sources requiring diamond needles drug through the spiral-grooved black lacquer discs of yore, the Aux 4 input's phono/line switch satisfies those addicted to the warm, even-order harmonic distortion of phono cartridges. A large phono ground post is nearby for added sheen.

The sixth Aux input enters via the USB Audio port. The MLM 65 registers as a standard USB audio device with either Windows or Apple operating systems, and both incoming and outgoing audio is stereo 16-bit, 48kHz PCM. This accommodates pristine, far-beyond-CD-quality playback of audio from dozens of instantly compatible laptop software programs.

The MLM 65's front panel has two headphone outputs (1/4" and 3.5m TRS) with a dedicated meter with peak hold, rotary Level control, and are fed audio from the selected/illuminated Cue button. Stereo headphone cueing of any mic, the selected Aux input, or the Main mix is supported.

The Main Level fader and meter with peak hold on the front affects only the Main stereo XLR Outputs which sport a Mono switch. The stereo Record RCA outputs with screwdriver adjustable attenuator provide a local analog output for recording to MP3 players or nearby camcorders.

The three digital audio outputs of the mix are 24-bit/ 48kHz S/PDIF and TOSLINK, and 16-bit/ 48kHz USB audio. The same laptop can simultaneously playback and record via USB
