OVERVIEW

Optimized for the computer-based home studio!

The Soundcraft COMPACT 10 Mixer is perfectly suited to many applications requiring simple mix facilities, but it really comes into its own during computer-based recording. It's simple to route an input straight to the record output simply by selecting the Record button on the channel. The COMPACT 10 Mixing Console is equipped with 4 mic inputs with high-quality mic preamps and phantom power plus line inputs, and a DI input for instruments, plus stereo inputs for keyboards, CD/tape, or turntables (with RIAA equalization). The DI input matches the input impedance of the Soundcraft mixer to the output impedance of the instrument, ensuring optimum pro-quality audio capture. Zero-latency monitoring while recording is enhanced with a blend control that lets you balance playback with the track being recorded for ideal headphone output for artists and engineers.

FEATURES
  • 10 channels
  • XLR and 1/4" jack inputs
  • High-quality Class A mic preamps
  • 3-band EQ on all input channels
  • Insert points for additional processing
  • Pan and Balance controls
  • Switchable +48V phantom power and indicator
  • Direct Injection for basses, guitars, and keyboards
  • Switchable RIAA turntable equalization
  • Zero-latency monitoring

  • Balanced mix and monitor outputs
  • Intuitive monitoring system

Soundcraft Compact 10

By Naomi's Fancy

from Thurmond, NC

See all my reviews

I have owned 2 of these units and as the others reviewers have stated, Both have burnt out the power section within a year. I would not recommend this product at all due to reliability issues.

Great mixer for two years

By Matt-7H080

from Nebraska

I bought the mixer two years ago. I was so excited when we got it and we used it a ton running vocals or turntables and a few guitars. Until one day i came home to find it completely dead. The power supply burnt up and now i have no clue how to get a new one. Thanks for the mixer while it lasted .

Where's the Power Switch?

By DrRosenRosen

from Undisclosed

This mixer was a good little workhorse that acted as a hub for any gear that I needed to connect for demonstrations. But after only about two years, it inexplicably died due to the same issues as one of the previous reviewers. The lack of a power switch really hurts the quality of this unit, especially when it is a stationary mixer with many other things connected. I wouldn't buy it again.

Nice while it lasted

By Irm

from Albuquerque,NM

This was a nice little basic mixer while it lasted. The other day when I went to used it, I smelled burning electronics. Sure enough it had burned out. Smoke came out of the headphone jack when i unplugged it. I opened it up and the power transistor was totally fried along with a swollen capacitor. The lack of a power switch is a real oversight on this unit. I had it for two years which isn't very long. My Mackie 12VLZ last more than 10 years.

Power supply fried itself.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I've owned a Compact 10 for about 1.5 years. It was great. All the mic/instrument/turntable/RCA/TR/TRS inputs, plus the multiple busses and outputs were very handy to have in such a small package. BUT, just recently I found the mixer without power. I tested the wall wart to find mV instead of the voltage it called for... I got in touch with Soundcraft and they said "yeah, the power supply fried, and subsequently fried the wall wart because you left it on all the time." Sure, I left it plugged in all the time because THERE'S NO POWER SWITCH. The unit is powered on when its plugged in... no option to leave it plugged in with out the mixer powered up. So now my mixer is fried, and I'm not about to buy another one.

it's so darn thin

By w_L6mxmSr

from Incline Village, NV

first off, i would like to say that for this price, there is no better mixer you can buy, for live, or recording. it was obviously very carefully thought out (download the manual and you will see why i say this), and solidly constructed (i already dropped it once onto linoleum and it seems as good as ever). the sound quality is pretty damn amazing for being so cheap & small.major complaints:there is the tiniest amount of crossover from the 'playback in' back through the 'record out' in the right ear. this makes overdubbing low volume things as stereo tracks fairly problematic. i have no clue whether this is just a problem with my particular unit, or if it is just a small quality oversight. nonetheless, it is kind of a pain in the a** since it advertises itself as the perfect device for doing exactly that.minor complaints:when you route a channel to the record bus, it mutes it from the main mix, so you don't get feedback from mics etc. this makes perfect sense, but it would be nice to add a button that routes the record out to the mix, so one doesn't have to change to monitors when going from playing along to overdubbing when recording things like turntables or keyboards, which do not produce feedback.i really like the one knob control between rec/mixon the artist headphone output. i wish that there was a way to route what the artist is hearing to the monitor out, allowing you to impliment a headphone mixer or something while controlling it with that knob.weird things:the power cable is really hard to unplug from the mixer due to the fact that the hole is too small for your fingers.the mixer itself is powered with no ground line.the grounding peg it has on it for turntables is just a big post, so i had to attach an alligator clip to my wire so i could hook it up.on the meter, there is one light that is designated for 'low battery.' as far as i can tell, there is no way of even putting batteries in this unit. the manual doesn't mention any way to, and i don't really want to take the mixer apart to find out if you can.

This thing Rocks!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought this mixer for my small home studio, and I just ca not say enough about it it is the best, man. I've worked with Soundcraft before and their quality is awesome. If you are on the Market for a small Mixer to either play with or run Sound this Mixer makes very little noise in my studio I LOVE THIS THING!! I even have Recommended it to my boss for our Demo studio.

Great for recording!

By Mr. Ed-RgHBO

from Anchorage, Alaska

See all my reviews

This is a great little mixer. It works extremely well for recording but as already mentioned, sending something out to record will remove it from the mains. You can also select individually which channels go the to the monitors.My only complaint with this mixer only really becomes apparent when used for live situations where you want add effects to individual channels. The lack of any sort of aux send/return is painful.All that aside, I've had no problems with my mixer and use it regularly for recording to minidisc, my laptop, and tape. I have no problems with feed through as mentioned by others and find the channels extremely quiet.BTW, the battery light is for a battery pack that is an add-on for the unit (but may not be available yet).Again, great unit as long as you don't need aux send/returns or mind having channels drop from the mains when you send them out the record bus.BTW, seperate phantom power and insert points on the mono channels come in handy as does the ability to plug Hi-Z components directly into 2 of the channels.If you need more recording abilities look into multichannel recording units (like the Tascam 402) or the Mackie Onyx mixers (with firewire).

A Real Value

By Joeybear

from Pittsburgh, PA

See all my reviews

I purchased this mixer from Musician's Friend after my GLI bit the dust after 18 years. I'm using it alongside my Roland VS-2480. PROS: This is a VERY good mixer for the money. There's loads of features and options, the sound quality is very good (for analog), and it's all in a nice small package. It can be used anywhere a mixer is needed, and it's also perfect for those of you transferring vinyl to CD. The two stereo turntable channels even have toggle buttons for turning RIAA on and off. This is a great feature for those who do audio restoration from vinyl. The manual is clear and understandable, and even includes wiring diagrams. CONS: The ground post for turntables. It's rather odd, but it's not a big issue, once you get the post unscrewed. (The trick is to hold the lower half of the post stationary while loosening the top half of the post)The other negative is the mixer's packaging. It's poor, and I bet that companies hold their breath every time they have to pack one up for shipping. Luckily for me, Musician's Friend did a good job packing the unit.All things considered, this mixer is a great value for the price.
