Soundcraft GB4-24 Mixing Console
The Soundcraft GB4 Mixer sets a new standard in affordable high-end mixing. This 24-channel mixer is laden with capabilities and quality features: GB30 mic preamps, reengineered circuit topology and EQ designs, rigid steel chassis, high-quality vertically mounted fiberglass PCB channel strips, individually nutted potentiometers, angled rear panel that allows patching from the front, and more--above all, the quality, engineering, and design for which Soundcraft is famous.
The GB4-24 is 24-channel, 4-bus mixing console designed and constructed to ensure rugged reliability under stressful tour conditions. All input modules have individual vertically-mounted PCB's fitted to the steel chassis.
This Soundcraft mixer is designed for performance venue installation or small touring system applications. The dual-mode topology allows it to to be used for FOH or monitor duties, with fader control of group or aux outputs.
Although largely conventional in layout, the Soundcraft GB4 Mixing Console does have some unique mechanical features. The rugged steel chassis has a sloping rear connector panel so that it is easier to configure from in front of the desk, while the integral power supply has a link option for an external backup PSU.
4 mute groups allow several channels to be muted simultaneously. Another unique feature on the Soundcraft GB4-24 Mixer is the limiter on a set of dedicated record outputs that makes it easier to create a stereo recording of the mix.
The Soundcraft console also features an output matrix with 7 feeds to 4 outputs, fed from the group buses and main L, R, and C (mono) outputs.
The GB4 offers a comprehensive set of functions in a small and cost-effective footprint, and delivers the high performance and reliability you expect from a Soundcraft mixer.
