Soundcraft LX7 console has received an upgrade to the LX7ii – both in terms of audio specification and cosmetics. The Soundcraft LX7ii is available in three different channel configurations (including 16, 24 and 32 input configurations). The Soundcraft LX7ii 16 features 16 input channels with 4 sub group outputs.
Electronically, the LX7ii has a Soundcraft mic preamp and EQ section, both designed by Soundcraft founder and electronics wizard Graham Blyth. The audio mixer’s 4-band EQ with swept mid sections is based on the highly acclaimed EQ in the MH3 and MH4 touring consoles.
The GB30 mic pre’s on the LX7ii Mixer possess much of the quality and precision of the mic pre’s used on Soundcraft’s biggest touring desk, while still being cost-sensitive.
The GB30 EQ gives a steeper than usual slope on the fixed LF and HF sections, removing unwanted mid-frequency ‘mush’ and delivering a clearer sound. It is a cost-effective design that brings high-end EQ into an affordable mixing console for the first time.
The LX7ii continues the tradition of the highly successful original LX7 in its applications in live performance PA, installed systems in churches, theaters and any similar application where a compact-sized console needs to provide a large number of inputs and maximum output capability. Both recording and live applications are easily satisfied.
