Mix Multiple Digital Sources with Professional Quality!
Today's synthesizers, sound modules and recording gear often feature digital outputs, but musicians have never had a way to mix all these sources at once. That's where the M-1000 comes in. This 1U rackmount mixer can mix up to four stereo digital signals of varying sample rates—along with a stereo analog input and digital audio from a PC—with professional 24-bit/96kHz sound quality.

Take a look at the back panel, and you'll find four S/PDIF digital inputs and a stereo analog input with high-quality A/D converters. That's a total of 10 input channels that can be mixed—regardless of sample rate—using the front-panel knobs. The result can be output via coaxial and optical digital outputs or the M-1000's analog Master and Monitor outputs.

USB Port for PC-Based Recording
The M-1000 even lets you integrate your USB-equipped PC into the mix. Using a USB cable, you can route digital signals from a computer into the M-1000, where they can be mixed with other input channels. The results can then be sent back out to the computer for recording. The M-1000 supports sample rates up to 96kHz—even via USB*—so there's never been a better or easier solution for computer-based recording.

Flexible Sync Options and Expandable Design
With its Word Clock input and output, the M-1000 can be easily integrated into professional studios. The clock source itself is selectable among Internal, Word Clock, Digital In and USB* for maximum flexibility. And with its pro-quality specs—including pristine 24-bit/96kHz AD/DA converters and 56-bit internal processing—the M-1000 can be used in a range of applications from home studio setups to world-class recording and editing suites. Best of all, multiple M-1000s can be cascaded for situations when additional inputs are required.
