Audio-Technica Introduces the ATDM-0604 Digital SmartMixer

Audio-Technica has debuted the ATDM-0604, a six-channel automatic mixer ideal for meetings, conferences, soft codec applications, courtroom proceedings, radio and TV broadcasts and other applications involving the use of multiple microphones or other media inputs.

Audio-Technica said its SmartMixer technology allows channels to be mixed automatically in gate or gain sharing mode — ensuring consistent, high-quality audio output from all inputs in a setup. It does this without the introduction of feedback, excessive ambient noise or comb filtering.

Controls and LED indicators on the mixer’s front panel allow users to easily adjust input/output and gain levels, set and recall presets, turn on/off phantom power, low-cut filter, automatic mixing and acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) and change IP configuration (Auto or Static).

A full complement of digital signal processing is available for inputs and outputs including parametric EQ, compressor, limiter and feedback control. Control and monitoring tools are accessible locally on the front panel or via the web remote interface, which allows users to handle the adjustments from a Mac, PC, iOS or Android device.

The mixer is equipped with four balanced microphone inputs, two balanced mic/line inputs and one unbalanced stereo input, along with two balanced and two unbalanced outputs. Network (Cat5e or better) and USB ports are also included, as are A/B Audio-Technica Link ports that let users connect six ATDM-0604 mixers via Cat5e cable for simultaneous use within an expanded setup.

The ATDM-0604 Digital SmartMixer will be available summer 2017 at $899.
