At PLASA 06, Formula Sound will be unveiling its new FF-4000 4-channel model and will display this alongside the brand new AVC2D intelligent level control unit and the recently introduced PM-80R 8-channel mixer.
The 4-channel FF-4000 DJ mixer takes all the best features that have made the existing 6-channel FF-6000 so popular and offers them in a more compact, lower-priced unit. Customer feedback was an important influence on the creation of this flexible and user-friendly new mixer that is intended to deliver top-end audio quality for smaller applications.
The original FF-6000 mixer was designed in collaboration with both UK loudspeaker manufacturer Funktion – One and a panel of leading DJs and the features those DJs asked for are now also available on the FF– 4000. These include rugged construction, outstanding sound quality, the opportunity to switch between linear and rotary channel faders, and large control knobs on the most frequently used functions. To complete the picture both the original FF- 6000 and the new FF– 4000 are available with an optional PRO-X high performance scratch cross fader.
Formula Sound’s brand new AVC2D intelligent level control unit will also be shown at PLASA. The original version of this unit helped establish some of today’s industry standards for noise control, and the new AVC2D builds on this by incorporating the very latest technology and offering additional features
Designed to help venues comply with today’s strict music level regulations the AVC2D is a versatile and reliable automatic level control that can work with any type of audio system. It can accept a microphone as its audio source and offers optional twin-mono or single stereo modes, a new easy-to-read display and the prospect of future software upgrades to enhance performance.
The Formula Sound PM-80R marks the reappearance of a modular mixer concept that first made its mark 25 years ago. Although the original and legendary PM-80 mixer has been out of production for over 10 years, Formula Sound bowed to customer demand and reintroduced the concept that found success in countless venues around the world.
The PM-80R’s flexible 8-channel format also incorporates subtle design changes that reflect the ways today’s mixers are used. Its features include offers independent gain, treble, mid, bass and pan controls on each channel, and a master section which provides separate booth, auxiliary, monitor and zone controls plus an easily-readable L.E.D. output meter and a headphone socket.
