SWAMP 6 Channel Mixing Desk - 4 Mic Preamps - Graphic EQ - USB Recorder
SWAMP M206 Mixing Desk - 4 XLR Mic Preamp Inputs - 2x Stereo 1/4" Inputs
The M-series mixers from SWAMP boast a sleek, compact design in a durable lightweight housing at an affordable price. Featuring all the controls you'd expect from a modern mixing console, the M-series are a no nonsense workhorse suited perfectly for a gigging band, solo artist, function venue, or rehearsal studio.
7-Band Graphic Equalizer
A 7-band EQ enables the main output to be tweaked for particular rooms and venues. Graphic equalizers are the main backbone for good sound in a venue, providing a clear representation of the frequency spectrum. They allow the user to cut certain frequencies that are prone to feedback, and boost certain frequencies that may be lost due to the acoustics of the room.
19" Rack Mountable - Rack Rails Included
The M-series mixing desks are all 19" rack mountable, with the rack rails required included with every model. The rack rails simply attach to the side of the mixer with 3 screws already present on the mixer, then it is ready to be placed into any 19 inch rack case or frame.
AUX / FX Sends and Routing
Equipped with an auxiliary (AUX) send, that allows an additional "mix" of channels to be sent from the mixing console to foldback speakers or outboard effects. Ideal for creating foldback mixes for on stage performers. Each channel can be set to have the signal sent to the AUX send either PFL or AFL (Pre Fader Level, After Fader Level). The FX send channel can also be used as a 2nd AUX send.
The M Series mixers also includes a stereo sub group, allowing for an alternative output of selected channels via the Sub 1-2 Out XLR's. The sub-group can also be routed into the main mix, allowing for channels sent to the sub-group to be added to the mix via a single fader.
Monitor and Headphone Outputs
The monitor output enables the main mix to be sent to an alternative set of speakers, mixing desk, or recording interface. While the headphone output allows the user to solo channels by pressing the 'PFL' or 'AFL' buttons, and listen to the main mix without the confusion of room acoustics getting in the way.
Quality Mic Preamps
Critical to the performance of any decent audio mixer are the in-built microphone preamps. The M-series preamps offer undistorted, noise-free gain with plenty of headroom, usually reserved for more costly mixing consoles and outboard preamps units.
In-Built Delay Effect
Each channel has an FX control knob that will send the signal to the in-built 'delay' effect processor. There is a single 'reverb like' delay effect that is highly controllable via the FX, Del and Rep knobs. The FX knob controls the prominence of the delayed signal, while the delay time and fade out of the delay are controlled by the 'Del' and 'Rep' knobs respectively.
3 Band EQ Channel Strip
Each channel strip has a standard 3-band EQ with Bass, Mid and High controls. 15dB of level control each way gives the audio engineer plenty to work with.

review for SWAMP 6 Channel Mixing Desk21 November 2016I bought this mixer as a starter as i am gust starting out in the world of professional audio. Because I am only starting out i have a tight budget the swamp m206 is at an affordable price. most other 6 Chanel mixers are about $400 but the m206 is only $200. Over all this is a hight quality mixer for only half the price of other mixers of this quality.
M206By: Anonymous on 21 November 2016Purchased this unit for a home studio set up. Has all I need for recording into Garage Band and plenty of options for rehearsal. Takes inputs from guitar practice amp, metronome/click track, pc, mic's etc. The EQ is very versatile & 'warm'. It has great features that I thought I would have to pay more to get. Overall, this is a very nice unit & fits the application nicely at a very good price. Swamp have done well with these. Highly recommended.

By: Jeff Thompson on 27 December 2014This is a fantastic unit. The on board recording facilities and intuitive design makes this easy to use. Great for podcasting. I highly recommend this product.
