High-quality mic pres
When designing the MFXi 8, Soundcraft brought excellent components to a truly appealing price. It features the the GB30 mic preamp that Graham Blyth designed expressly for the company’s 30th anniversary — the GB30’s the same highly transparent mic pre used on Soundcraft’s larger LX7ii and GB series consoles.
Must-have routing and I/O
When choosing a mixer, the amount of routing possibilities and I/O configurations are essential deciding factors and the MFXi 8 asserts an impressive outfit for its price. it includes two configurable aux sends, two groups, XLR and 1/4″ metal jack connector sockets, RCA phono stereo playback inputs and record outputs, 3-band EQ on the two stereo inputs, TRS insert sockets, inserts on all mono outputs, ten-segment LED output metering, and a convenient headphone input. Inside, vertically mounted circuit boards and nutted pots give you premium performance and reliability. This mixer also includes a Kensington lock to keep it secure.
Premium Lexicon effects section
The MFXi 8’s set of 24-bit digital effects sets it apart from many mixers in its class. You get two stereo channels and an effects send on each channel — and a whopping 32 effects to choose from. The MFXi 8 uses the same AudioDNA processor featured in many of the Digitech and Lexicon outboard equipment including the highly respected Lexicon MX400. Enjoy reverb, chorus and delay — complete with tap tempo — for a sound that’s unmistakably Lexicon.
