LIVEMIX MIX-16
LIVEMIX MIX-16
16 personal monitor mix distributor
MSRP $1299.99

The MIX-16 is the central mixer for the Livemix personal monitor system. The MIX-16 supplies mix streams as well as power to each of the connected personal mixers.

The MIX-16 will generally be placed near the personal mixers, likely in a rack near the stage. The MIX-16 receives input data over a network cable, either from the AD-24 (shielded) or a Dante network via the LM-DANTE-EXP Dante card.

Each port on the MIX-16 supports two discrete personal monitor mixes. Connect a single CS-DUO or up to two CS-SOLOs to each port with standard network cable. Maximum combined CAT5e cable (shielded or unshielded) distance is 100 meters.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

MIX16

With feedback from our end users and dealers, we are continually making Livemix better with firmware updates. These USB ports are used for updating the firmware.

We recommend placing the MIX-16 or MIX-32 near the stage. This will maximize the cable lengths for each personal mixer.

Livemix supports up to 24 input channels and provides 4 additional accessory channels (Ambient Mic, Intercom, Aux Input, and Metronome).

The MIX-16 supports 16 personal mixes but has up to 24 channels.

Livemix has a passcode feature for protecting certain settings. The passcode protects one or both of the Global Effects (channel EQ, Dynamics and HPF) and/or Global Configuration (all global features including Global Templates).

Livemix has a passcode feature for protecting certain settings. The passcode protects Global Effects (channel EQ, Dynamics and HPF) and/or Global Configuration (all Global features including Global Templates).

Livemix is able to choose up to 24 channels from all any of the available channels on the Dante network.

Livemix works with either analog or gigital (Dante) input. With the AD-24 analog input unit you can connect TRS or DB25 connectors from your console or recording interface. For a Digital connection with Dante, plug directly into a switch. For other digital formats (MADI), you may need a format converter.

Dante Controller is not needed for setting up Livemix on the Dante Network. However, you will need to use Dante Controller to set the Master Clock for the Dante Network. See the LM-DANTE User Guide pg. 8 for assigning Dante Channels.

AES67 is an interoperability protocol that promises the ability to share digital audio from non-compatible networks. As the AES67 standard is not fully implemented at this time, AES67 is not yet supported.

Livemix operated at 24-Bit digital mixing and processing.

The Livemix system latency is a maximum of 1.5 ms.

Each MIX-16/MIX-32 Control Surface port supports a maximum combined CAT5e (shielded recommended) cable distance of 100 meters.

The maximum supported CAT5e (shielded required) cable distance of 100 meters.

The maximum supported CAT5e (shielded required) cable distance of 100 meters.

Shielded cable is required for connecting both the AD-24 and the DA-816 to the MIX-16 or MIX-32. Shielded cable is not required for connecting a CS-SOLO or CS-DUO to the MIX-16/32 or connecting the LM-DANTE card to the Dante network. However, shielded is recommended.

We recommend to make the Master clock the console or Dante card in the console. NOTE: There are two ways this can be done. 1) Set the console’s internal clock as Master, then using Dante Controller, set the console’s Dante card as Master clock (for the Dante Network) and also check box “Sync to External”. This will allow the card to stay sync’d to the console’s master clock. 2) Set the console’s internal clock to be slave of the console’s Dante card. Using Dante controller, set the console’s Dante card as Master clock.

You will need to select Sync to External if your console’s clock is not set to slave. Or if you are using any other clock source. i.e Madi, AES50 etc.

48kHz has long been the standard for network audio, offering the combination of the most compatibility, fidelity and throughput.
