Soundcraft / Spirit MH2 40 Channel Console - 40 Mono, 4 Stereo, 10 Aux, 8 Groups, 4 Matrix

The MH2 from Soundcraft was designed to give engineers and venues total flexibility and world-class sound quality at a very reasonable price tag. The MH2 is truly a dual-purpose mixer. It's been designed to be used as a front of house console, and as fully capable monitor mixer.

It comes with an internal power supply, and features an additional input for using an external power supply. The internal power supply will appeal to anyone who has ever arrived at a location to do sound, only to discover that their external power supply was not in the truck. The power supplies can be daisy-chained and will seamlessly switch without interruption in the event of a failure. The internal power supply was designed to be easily serviceable.

Packed with 10 auxiliary sends, 8 groups, and 4 matrix outputs, the MH2 features an arsenal of routing options. Buttons for grouping and options for the auxiliary mix are thoughtfully placed on every channel, making involved mixes easier to execute. Simplifying ease of use has always been important to the designers at Soundcraft, and they've had over 30 years to fine tune their ideas. Another tradition at Soundcraft is providing excellent sound quality, and a responsive and musical "British" EQ section.

The dedication to sound quality starts at the input stage. The preamps on the MH2 are the same ones found on the MH3 and MH4. The elegant circuitry provides 50dB of headroom with a -20dB pad on every channel. Peak LED lights are provided that alert you of any signals that may be overloading at the input stage or post EQ.

There are separate balanced XLR and 1/4" TRS line inputs on all 32 channels, as well as separate balanced 1/4" TRS jacks for sending and receiving inserts. This way the integrity of your signal stays balanced throughout the entire chain when inserting hardware to control dynamics, and not degrading on unbalanced y-cables.

From the solid input stage the signal is sent to a 4-band EQ section with sweeps on every band. This is the responsive and musical "British" EQ that made Soundcraft famous. On the four stereo channels there are 4-band EQs with no sweeps.

After the EQ section you have the option of sending the signal to 10 auxiliary sends for stage monitor mixes, recording, subwoofers, etc. You can switch between Pre and Post fader for the first four pairs of sends. Auxes 9 & 10 can be switched into a stereo pair to accommodate in-ear monitors. Each channel features dedicated mute and solo buttons. The solo button can be activated remotely when assigned to one of the console's 8 VCA groups.

The Soundcraft MH2 will provide you with years of excellent performance. It's the perfect mixer for any situation that demands the highest quality of sound, construction, and flexibility, while still maintaining a competitively reasonable price.
