A great first mixer for students, performers, or small home studios.

Designed by Greg Mackie over 35 years ago, many original Tapco mixers are still in use today. Now back and better than ever, the Mix Series marks the return of that legendary Tapco reliability and Mackie design expertise to home/project recording, professional video editing suites, sound education labs, and more. The competitively priced Tapco Mix.120 Ultra-Compact 12-Channel Mixer features four mono/mic line inputs, four stereo line inputs, one aux send and one tape input/output in a rugged metal chassis.

The ultra-compact Mix Series is the answer for budget-conscious folks who refuse to sacrifice sound quality or reliability just to save a dime. Four models suit a variety of needs from desktop recording stations to smaller live gigs--for beginners and seasoned professionals alike. All four feature high-quality sound, solid construction, and eye-catching cosmetics.

No skimping on sound

With the Mix Series, you no longer need to trade affordability for quality sound. The Tapco Mix.120 mixing console offers the best sounding preamps and EQ in their class, so you won't sound like an amateur, even if you're still learning your mixing chops.

Compact and portable

All that great sound potential is efficiently packed into a compact solid-steel chassis. It won't eat up your precious desktop space, and practically fits in a car's glove compartment for you sneaky types. And don't worry about taking it out on the road. The Mix Series is a durable performer you can trust for any small PA or remote recording assignment.

Intuitive design, comfortable to use

Small doesn't have to be cramped. Tapco made the most of the Mix.120 audio mixer by designing it to be comfortable to use by everybody--not just dwarves or kids under four years of age. The knobs and buttons are spaced intelligently, so if you don't have the slender fingers of a professional hand model, you wont have to use tweezers to do a tweak. And because they're Tapco, the controls are presented in a way that simply makes sense to beginners and pros alike.

Utility, utility, utility . . .

The Mix Series mixers are the perfect, cost-effective solution for applications ranging from home/project recording to professional video editing suites, to sound education labs and more. Giving you all of the essentials, the Tapco Mix.120 also offers conveniences like CD/tape I/O, super-accurate 4-segment main meters, phantom power for professional-level condenser microphones, Active Direct Boxes, and a Kensington security lock, making it perfect for schools, dorm rooms, small churches, and anywhere a no-nonsense, die-hard, quality sounding compact mixer is needed.

Killer Deal

By Mike-.DAzt

from West Maui

My last TAPCO was a 6100 waaay in the '70s. It was a great board and so is this one. I got it for my wife to use with her karaoke system. For the price I was expecting something merely adequate but I was pleasantly surprised. It's got a good EQ on the first four channels, plenty of flexibility to handle multiple mics and music sources, and plenty of outputs.

The Tapco Mix 120 is the best mixer I have used by far. I own the PVDJ Club Mix DJ mixer and this mixer blows it away. Mackies hand in designing this superior product makes it the best mixer for the value, performance, and reliability.


5 Stars for the price

I got this mixer because the behringer xenyx I was looking at was out of stock. I am very happy things turned out this way.I have zero latency, zero noise (except when a marshall pedal was part of the chain), and so far zero problems. There is no speaker pop when unplugging keyboards (which is nice since there's no off button but no need for one). I was also very happy to find separate controls for the monitors volume and the recording volume.I haven't used microphones, the eq, or the aux send, but I expect no issues with those.I'm not a professional, but this mixer is cheap and it does its job very well.


Best Mixer on the Worst Budget

I'm a very small time recording engineer who was putting together a home studio to record the various artists I know. This mixer caught my eye because it was designed by Greg Mackie and I heard about ones that were still in service after 30 years. Given that I had almost no money to spend this seemed like the perfect option. Although some of the channels don't have an EQ, and there are no effects, this is still the perfect mixer (after all, it's easy to EQ a track after mixing). I run an AKG D880 through a Presonus TubePre and then into the mixer, then out through and EMU box into Sonar LE. This mixer has an almost nonexistent signal to noise ratio; you have to turn everything up to 10 to hear any hiss at all. This is the best deal on the face of the planet.
