ICM SE-4-ME Professional Audio Mixer with BT and USB Recorder
I'd bought one of the ICM-SE-8-ME mixers to use with my Alesis SR18 drum and bass machine, to work up a small, live, online live rig in 2020 (still rehearsing) and was impressed enough with the build quality of that to choose two ICM-SE-4-ME as 4 mic preamps for the line channels on my studio's Behringer FCA1616, rather than twice the price for a fibre optic mic expander, and I'm very happy with the results! The build quality is rugged, as well.
I knew the ICM-SE-4-ME had individual phantom and impedance selection, like the FCA's 4 mic preamps, but specs are nearly as good as the Midas preamps, too, and any difference is undetectable by ear. My home studio is now an 8 mic in rig, which means I can do a proper "room mic" of my drums or have some friends over to make noise as a live unit.
BTW, anybody wondering how I've set this up... ch 1 to 4 of the FCA, in-built mic inputs, ch 1 of ICM-SE-4 panned full left, left out to FCA ch 5, ch2 panned full right, right out to FCA ch 6, repeat on second mixer for channels 7 and 8 on the FCA.
