SCC Audio, Milton Keynes, Bucks., UK., 22 September 2020. Studiomaster’s highly popular ClubXS compact mixer series has received an upgrade with the introduction of uprated 6-, 8-, 10- and 12-channel ‘XS+’ models.
The addition of a DSP on/off foot-switch socket comes with new black livery – matching the brand’s digiLiVE console series – and more ergonomic colour coding of channel rotary controls.
ClubXS has been a big seller for Studiomaster since its introduction in 2016. A dedicated compact design for small to medium entertainment installations or portable live sound, it offers a wealth of product-class leading features and specs for these applications at an amazing price point. The ClubXS+ refresh maintains the value for money proposition with 6-, 8-, 10- and 12-input channel models now equipped with the DSP on/off foot-switch capability, bringing them into line with the already existent ClubXS16+ model.
Input channel configurations on all models feature two stereo channels, and increasing +48V phantom power mic channel counts across the range, with; two on the ClubXS6+, four on the ClubXS8+, six on the ClubXS10+, eight on the ClubXS12+ 8, and 12 on the ClubXS16+.
Series’ specifications include balanced mic/line connectors, 3-band EQ, built-in variable independent input channel compression (non Stereo chs), 2 Aux channels, channel MUTE switch, 16 programmable DSP effects, and a versatile MP3/USB/SD card playback and recording system. This includes a Bluetooth playback capability that enables playback of audio from phones, laptops and other Bluetooth devices. High quality 60mm smooth faders and a robust, quiet internal switchmode power supply are also standard.
