Soundcraft recently added three new models to its multipurpose mixer range: the FX16ii, EFX, and MFX. Each product features at least 32 Lexicon 24-bit digital effects. The new models use the same AudioDNA processor found in many Lexicon and DigiTech outboard products, including the Lexicon MX500. The consoles also offer a user settings store function, three parameter controls, tap tempo, and 32 effects presets. The FX16ii provides 26 inputs, 16 direct outputs, four stereo returns, and rotating connector pod. The EFX comes in a smaller frame size, available in eight- and 12-channel versions. According to the company, the MFX is the most versatile of the multipurpose range with two group busses, two aux sends, one FX send on each channel, and two stereo input channels — offered in three frame sizes (eight, 12, and 20 inputs). All models can be rack-mounted through optional rack kits. Price: N/A. For more information, contact Soundcraft at 818-920-3212 or at www.soundcraft.com.
