What you need to know:

  • Audio-Technica has launched its ATDM-0604a Digital SmartMixer, an update of its original ATDM-0604 SmartMixer, which is typically intended for use in meeting spaces, educational facilities and the like.
  • The new ATDM-0604a boasts improved echo and noise-cancellation performance; LED-based remote control of the company’s ES954 hanging microphone array via the GPO terminal; cascade connectivity for up to eight mixers sharing audio buses and SmartMix controls; and mic/line level support for input channels 1 to 6.

The ATDM-0604a automatic mixer is ideal for meetings, conferences, soft codec applications, courtroom proceedings, radio and TV broadcasts and other applications involving the use of multiple microphones or other media inputs. Audio-Technica’s SmartMixer technology allows channels to be mixed automatically in gate or gain sharing mode, ensuring consistent, high-quality audio output from all inputs in a setup, without the introduction of feedback, excessive ambient noise, or comb filtering.

Controls and LED indicators on the mixer’s front panel allow users to adjust input/output and gain levels; set and recall presets; turn on/off phantom power, low-cut filter, automatic mixing and acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) channel by channel; change IP configuration (Auto or Static); assign noise cancellation to any output channel and more.

Additionally, DSP is available for inputs and outputs. Input processing includes a four-band parametric EQ, compressor/de-esser. A total of eight 8-band feedback suppressors can be assigned to an input or output. Output processing includes a 12-band parametric EQ, compressor, and limiter. Control and monitoring tools are easy to access locally on the front panel or via the Web Remote interface. IP-based external remote control is also supported.

The mixer is fully equipped with six mic/line inputs and one unbalanced stereo input, along with two balanced (dual mono or stereo) and one unbalanced stereo output. A USB stereo input/output and network ports are also included, as are Audio-Technica Link ports that let users connect eight ATDM-0604a mixers via Cat5e cable for simultaneous use within an expanded setup.
