OVERVIEW

Good quality, small console for solo or duo acts, or multimedia source mixing.

The ZEPHYR ZMX52 is a 5-channel mixer with all the essential inputs, outputs, and EQ for solo gigs and multimedia studios. It features one mono channel with a microphone input (with Phantom Power), balanced TRS input, and a two-band EQ and a stereo channel. It also delivers two stereo channels with two balanced TRS inputs each. There's even two-track inputs for things such as audio playback.

The ZMX52 is the perfect mixer for quick, easy setups with no hassle. Not only can you can plug dynamic, condenser, and wireless microphones into the first channel, but you also get two stereo channel inputs for keyboards, drum machines, and other instruments. What's more, you can easily plug in your MP3 player, CD players, or audio from a DVD player into the CD/TAPE input. But, you also have a dedicated stereo output to send to a recorder in addition to the main stereo outputs. Choose the ZMX52 as the audio central command for your live performances, home studio, or video suite.

All Alto Professional ZEPHYR ZMX mixers are designed with high headroom and ultra low-noise, discrete mic preamps so you always get the full dynamic range of your mix every time.

Sometimes venues are dark and it can be hard to see what you're working with. Alto Professional solves this problem by not only color coding each section of the mixer, but also by using brightly colored knobs so that you can easily find what you need to adjust before you ever lay a finger on the mixer. Our blue, red and white pots are instantly easy to identify in dim lighting. LED indicators for output level, peak, and phantom power also assist in making sure that you have multiple visual cues that compliment everything you're hearing.

FEATURES
  • Eight total inputs including an XLR jack with phantom power and EQ on channel one
  • 1/4" Main, Tape, Headphone and Aux outputs for flexible routing and monitoring
  • Compact design perfect for musicians looking for easy portage and quick set-up
  • One MIC input channel with gold plated XLR and balanced Line input
  • Two stereo input channels with balanced TRS jack
  • Extremely high headroom offering extra dynamic range
  • Ultra-low noise discrete mic pre-amps with +18V Phantom power

  • Warm, natural two-band EQ on mono channel

    Comments about Alto Zephyr Series ZMX52 5-Channel Compact Mixer:

    I was looking for the smallest mixer I could find to run my keyboard rig into for live performance use. This thing did the trick. I was even able to make it smaller by taking off the hefty side plastic rails. Not much flashyness to this little guy. Sounds clear and flat to me. This is my first Alto gear I've ever owned

        Preamp is a great feature to hook the keyboard up for special effects, you can really get massive attention getting volume with it.

            Got this delivered today, fast shipping. Works great for practicing in my basement by myself. Also bought a Kustom 10 inch powered monitor last week. Good sound out of the combination.

              I use this mixer to practice my vocals in my music room. It's perfect for me. I connect my Digitech trio to one of the channels, my mic in another channel, and the main output to a powered speaker. It ends up sounding like a mini concert. Did I mention that this was an open box? The item was like mint condition, and I saved money.

              Comments about Alto Zephyr Series ZMX52 5-Channel Compact Mixer:

              I recently bought this mixer and immediately found use in it for sound mixing and monitoring when making video. I have a Canon 600d which has a microphone output but no headphone jack. I connected the stereo mike to the stereo inputs and connected the output to the micophone jack on the camera.

              The product would be perfect (but more expensive) if you had 2 usb connections, one for power and the other for digital out. Overall, a great value system for small or low budget projects.
