In 1997, Soundcraft launched the Spirit FX16 which immediately became popular with its 16 direct outputs and built-in effects unit in wide-ranging applications. Ten years later, Soundcraft has given the FX16 an overhaul bringing it in line with the Soundcraft Professional range using the latest 24-bit, digital Lexicon effects processor and creating the Soundcraft FX16ii.

The Soundcraft FX16ii mixer uses the same AudioDNA processor featured in many of the Digitech and Lexicon outboard equipment including the highly respected Lexicon MX500 processor. With over 35 years of experience, the Lexicon name is among top creators of reverb and processing equipment in the business, ensuring the finest quality effects not usually found in a console at this price level.

The Soundcraft FX16ii offers a combination of powerful live and recording features; each channel has a Direct Output that is individually switch-able pre- or post-fader to enable use with 16-track recording systems. The Lexicon effects work just as well in the live as well as the recording environment with a tap tempo function, 3 parameter controls, user effects settings storability, effects clip LED, and 32 powerful and editable effects to choose from.

The use of the latest PCB surface-mount technology means that the Soundcraft FX16ii fits all of these features into a rugged, compact frame which can be optionally rack-mounted into a 10U space via Soundcraft FX16ii's rotating connector pod which allows cables to be connected conveniently behind the rack and save rack space.

  • Great mixer for live sound

    As reviewed by Ken on 6/1/2011

    I had a 16 channel mixer prior to getting this one. This mixer offers much more flexibility with channel inserts, 3 Aux sends and simple, straight forward controls which help to get a good sound and make it easy to mix. I have used this board with other live bands prior to my purchase and this really helped justify my purchase. This is a workhorse!
