Signature 12 & 12MTK

Small-format mixers are now big business for podcasters and acoustic singer-songwriters. Go up in channel count, though, and you can start incorporating more of your analogue world into your digital. Andy Jones checks out the new Signature 12, which also doubles as a multi-channel USB interface…


We’ve seen a resurgence in the use of analogue mixers over recent years here at MusicTech.

Then there’s the increased popularity of analogue synths; not least the Eurorack/modular synth format.

The latter two have meant that small mixers in particular have become very popular again – indeed, I’ve recently looked at great models by Mackie, Yamaha and Allen & Heath.
