The beautiful new desk is inspired by the highly successful and popular MH3 and MH4 touring sound consoles, and features a new frame, module ID graphics, and end-cheeks, making the LX7ii not only easy to operate but also a system that will be the envy of pros worldwide. The LX7ii features a new Soundcraft mic-preamp and EQ section, both of which were designed by Soundcraft founder and electronics genius Graham Blyth. The new GB30 Series designs mark Soundcraft's 30th anniversary, and the new 4-band EQ with swept mid portions is based on the acclaimed EQ found in the new MH3 and MH4 touring consoles.
"The GB30 EQ delivers a steeper than typical slope on the fixed LF and HF parts, reducing undesirable mid-frequency mush' and producing a crisper sound, thanks to the work we conducted on the new MH range. For the first time, we've created a unique, cost-effective design that incorporates high-end EQ into a cheap mixing console."
The LX7ii 16 16ch also has a frame size of 16 mono inputs and four stereo inputs/returns with four groups, a primary stereo output, and a separate mono output for centre clusters as standard features. The first 16 inputs provide direct outputs for multitrack recording, as well as six auxes for effects and foldback versatility. The LX7ii outputs seven subgroups in addition to the primary Left, Right, and Centre (Mono) mix outputs.
In its uses in live performance PA, installation systems in churches, theatres, and any other comparable application where a compact sized console needs to give a large number of inputs and maximum output capacity, the LX7ii follows in the footsteps of the highly popular original LX7. The LX7ii is well-suited to both recording and live applications.
