In a live or studio application a mixing console is designed to facilitate the combining, equalisation and level balancing of multiple audio signals resulting in a final “mixed” output that is pleasing to the ear.

In an installation application mixers are used for various tasks such as providing level control over various pre-mixed sources such as video or background music into multiple zones of a hotel, club or restaurant. They are also used to provide level control for paging and emergency alert tones.

There are many types of mixers with many facilities for many applications. Always think in advance when choosing a mixer, it is better to have a larger mixer with extra facilities for future expansion than not enough and the need to buy a new mixer.
