Brand Name: DYNACORD

Model Number: CMS1000-3


The Compact Mixing System from Dynacord has seized pole position in this segment of the market by virtue of the quality of its sound, components and features. By integrating a high-quality mixer, two digital effects processors of studio grade, a graphic equalizer and also a professional digital interface to PC or Mac, the CMS mixers represent the ideal solution for a large number of demanding applications in the audio sector.

The mixing section starts with 16 lowest noise, discrete microphone preamps. 6 auxiliary busses, two of them switchable pre/post fader, allow high flexibility for monitoring. The two effects processors offer 100 factory presets, including the already legendary PowerMate-reverbs. A TAP key allows precise setting of delay times. Further, each preset can be edited and

stored to 20 User memories.

The built in uncompromising USB audio interface shares 4 playback and 4 recording channels simultaneously with a PC or Mac, following studio standard 24-bit / 96 kHz. An additional MIDI interface allows integration of instruments, such as keyboards. A license for

Steinbergs Cubase software is part of the package.

The 11 band stereo graphic equalizer can be routed flexible to master or monitor channels.

For dark environments an optional gooseneck light can be connected. All faders are dust protected and not least the balanced XLR outputs for master and monitor underline

the professional approach.

Optional a very robust cover lid with an integrated handle is available. A solution that offers optimal protection for the device as well as greater carrying comfort without the need of adding a large, heavy flight case.
