Nowhere else will you find a USB 2 audio/MIDI interface that includes a programmable, 8x10 surround-capable digital mixer, DSP effects that work with or without a computer, and the ability to work as a control surface, for well below $600. The Keith McMillen Instruments K-Mix bowled us over for its versatility, features, build quality, and visual appeal. With its desktop-friendly size, great-sounding preamps, and 24-bit/96 kHz audio quality, the K-Mix fits the bill just as well in a pro-level recording system as it does in a live-performance P.A. system.
With its multicolored touch-controller, the K-Mix uses KMI’s trademark “opto-tactile” control surface and assigns multiple layers of functionality to almost every control, making highly efficient use of the rotaries, faders, and buttons. The K-Mix marks a significant breakthrough in technology and occupies a class all its own.
