The Studiomaster Horizon 2012 12 Input 2000 Watt Powered Mixer offers a range of features that ensures everything runs smoothly. The team at Studiomaster have gained a reputation for building solid and reliable equipment that professionals love, and the Horizon 2012 Powered Mixer carries on this legacy - packing more than a few nifty features in for good measure.
Flexible Two-Channel Amplifier
The Horizon 2012 has a two-channel amplifier, which supplies up to 1000-Watts per channel. The mixer uses energy as efficiently as possible, running at a low voltage and introducing more power when required - with a fan on-hand to keep everything cool. The amp output can also be limited to 40 or 15 percent, which allows you to power smaller speakers with blowing them.
The amp operation is flexible to meet the changing requirements of a live sound engineer. Alongside normal stereo operation, there is a split mode - a mono mix is sent to the left output, and an aux or monitor feed is sent to the right output. Alternatively, the amp can be set to power the monitors only.
At your disposal are 12-inputs, with six mono mic/line channels plus three stereo inputs, which can also double as mono mic inputs — therefore, up to nine mics can be connected simultaneously. Three of the six mono mic/line input channels use Combi input connectors. For condenser mics, phantom power can be supplied separately to two banks of six channels (1-6 and 7-12).
Each channel is equipped with a gain pot, an 80Hz low-cut filter alongside a three-band EQ with swept mid (100Hz to 8kHz), Mute, Pre-Fade Listen (PFL), Aux controls, Pan, and smooth 60mm faders.
Built-in Dynamic Controls
Adapted from Studiomaster’s Voice Management System (VMS), the Horizon 2012 is home to an optical compressor on input channels to guarantee a smooth output for vocals – saving you time, money, and space. The VMS gently attenuates your output to ensure that loud signals are tempered, whilst softer passages are given a lift.
The built-in 9-band EQ section allows you to shape and control your output with incredible accuracy. The on-board effects section provides dual DSP-powered reverbs and delays, which are designed for live performances, delivering eight preset reverbs or a fully variable delay,
The Horizon 2012 is equipped with a USB 2.0 interface, enabling you to connect to your computer – as well as being able to connect via RCA phono connections – for recording and playback. So whether you’re at a gig, in the studio, or just jamming with friends, you can easily connect directly to your computer and DAW of choice to capture your next masterpiece.
The chassis is made using aluminium, which provides stability and strength whilst retaining a lightweight feel – something your back will appreciate when loading in and out when gigging. Each side panel is made using bamboo, adding a nice touch to the finish whilst also providing superb resilience.
The Studiomaster Horizon 2012 12 Input 2000 Watt Powered Mixer comes with a 12V goose-neck lamp so that you can easily see if dark venues. You also receive a 19-inch rack mount kit.
Whether you’re taking your first steps into the world of sound engineering, or are a seasoned pro, Studiomaster build high-quality, road-ready equipment, and their Horizon 2012 12 Input 2000 Watt Powered Mixer truly does them proud.
