Top-end features in an affordable mixing console.
The stylish new desk gets its looks from the highly successful and popular MH3 and MH4 touring sound consoles, and includes a new frame, module ID graphics and end-cheeks, making the LX7ii not only easy to use but creating a system that will be the envy of professionals everywhere.
Electronically, the LX7ii gains a new Soundcraft mic-preamp and EQ section, both designed by Soundcraft founder and electronics wizard Graham Blyth. The new 4-band EQ with swept mid sections is based on the highly acclaimed EQ in the new MH3 and MH4 touring consoles.
The GB30 mic preamps on the LX7ii possess much of the quality and precision of the mic preamps used on Soundcraft's biggest touring desk, while still being cost sensitive.
The GB30 EQ gives a steeper than usual slope on the fixed LF and HF sections, removing unwanted mid-frequency "mush" and delivering a clearer sound. It is a cost-effective design that brings high-end equalization into an affordable mixing console for the first time.
Other standard features of the Soundcraft LX7ii include 24 inputs, 4 stereo inputs/returns with 4 groups, main stereo output and a dedicated mono output for center clusters. There are direct outputs on the first 16 inputs suitable for multitrack recording, and 6 auxes providing flexibility for effects and foldback. The LX7ii mixes to 7 outputs—4 subgroups, plus the main Left, Right and Center (Mono) mix outputs.
The music mixer continues the tradition of the highly successful original LX7 in its applications in live performance PA, installed systems in churches, theaters and any similar application where a compact-sized console needs to provide a large number of inputs and maximum output capability. Both recording and live applications are easily satisfied.
