8MX2 Joins JDK Family

Publish date:

JESSUP, MARYLAND - JUNE 2012: JDK continues to expand its product line with the addition of the powerful and versatile 8MX2 preamp/mixer.

Equipped with eight stellar microphone preamps, each channel contains a variable threshold peak limiter, 48v Phantom power switch, phase reverse, direct output and a path to the stereo mix bus. The included eight-into-two mixer receives signal from the mic pre or eight external line level inputs. With two 10-segment meters to monitor Input/Mix and Gain Reduction, headphone and speaker output monitor controls, and multi-unit cue and master capabilities, the slim 8MX2 packs a big punch in only 1u of rack space.

The 8MX2 was developed from technology used in the Paragon live mixing console. It evolved over the years into a stand-alone preamp/mixer and is especially popular in remote recording racks and sidecar-like applications. With hundreds in the field, the 8MX2 can be found in the live recording racks for artists such as Jimmy Buffet, Cher, Taylor Swift, NBC's 2012 London Olympics crew, Lilith Fair, and the Cowboy Junkies.

Engineer, mixer and producer Mark Linett of Music Mix Mobile West has been a fan of the 8MX2 for years. He's used the versatile units on projects for the Beach Boys, Eric Clapton, Brian Wilson, Crash Test Dummies, and David Lee Roth.

"We own a portable recording system that features six of the 8MX2 preamp/mixers," said Linett. "I have taken this system on remotes as far away as Anguilla and the combination of the great sounding pres and the built-in mixer makes it an exceptionally compact 48-track recording package."
The 8MX2 is comfortable working on either analog or digital projects, and ideal for in-home, remote or live recording.
"The 8MX2 is the perfect addition to the JDK line," said API's Managing Director Gordon Smart. "Like the rest of the JDK family, the 8MX2 has an amazing pedigree, represents outstanding value, and is of course built to API's exacting standards. We're excited to be expanding the JDK line, and we're by no means done yet."
