Features of field mixers

While different makes and models of field mixers have different types of features, they tend to have some features in common. These include the gain and level controls, headphone monitoring, pan, low cut filters, limiters, and the tone generators. They will usually have a number of different types of outputs as well to accommodate different types of devices, such as microphones and a video camera.

How field mixers work

The field mixers are battery powered devices that will let you combine the signals from a number of different microphones, as well as other audio sources. You are then able to mix those signals into a mono or stereo output. You can plug the portable mixer into an audio recording device or the camera's audio inputs. In fact, you can hook the mixer up to both simultaneously if needed. The biggest benefit of the device is the ability to make fast adjustments when recording in the field. This can be helpful when recording a live broadcast, for example. These devices can be helpful to control the sound and levels, even when there is only a single source and nothing that actually needs mixing.

About field mixers

When you are recording in the field, whether you are recording at a mall, at the beach, on the street or elsewhere, you need to make sure that you are recording great audio. One of the most important pieces of your production kit is the field mixer. These are helpful for ensuring proper sound recording no matter the environment, and it serves a similar function to a traditional mixer that you might use in an editing studio.
