LAB REVIEW

The MX-1 is Roland's revolutionary performance mixer loaded with effects options, linking and control possibilities. The 18 channel mixer boasts step-sequenced Beat FX (Filter, Side Chain, Slicer) with TR-style buttons as well as 6 Master FX (48 variations) that can be controlled with the large performance knob. Both types of effects can be applied to any or all inputs, while the Beat FX can be used per channel. Four AIRA USB ports allow the MX-1 to support audio, MIDI, and sync, as well as bus power for AIRA gear. When used in external mode, the MX-1 provides 18 channels from DAW through mixer and FX (all inputs direct to DAW), while Mix Mode offers six analog, one digital (stereo), four AIRA (stereo) , and two PC channels through mixer and FX. When used in Control Surface mode, the MX-1 provides full DAW control via MIDI. In addition to all the mixing options, the MX-1 also features DJ-style cue monitoring, quick mutes, six fader curves per channel, as well as multiple per-channel EQ's, filters and isolators. All this proves the MX-1 is a truly advanced performance mixer in a class of its own. Anyone with AIRA gear would benefit greatly from integrating it into their setup.
