Small form, network capable live mix system, consisting of two main elements: a control surface, and a mix engine, which are connected via an ethernet connection. The surface shall have two banks of faders (8 and 4) and shall work in 4 layers. the surface will largely be 'dumb' and only handle operator input. The Mixrack shall be housed in a (TBC)U rack space, and have 32 XLR inputs, and 8 XLR outputs mounted on the front. the mixrack will house virtually all DSP operations.
