Thomann micromix1 usb - as a headphone monitor


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've been looking for a monitor mixer with eq that did not require a 0dB mixer output to work properly, and I recently found this:

It is designed to run from a USB port, so it can be powered by a USB charger or battery pack.

 

It has a balanced mic/line input, and a second mic/line input with less gain options, but a hi-z instrument input, and 2-band eq and pan on each channel.

 

I'm using it with a bracket to enable it to be belt mounted, and a usb battery pack that fits in a pocket.

 

My bass cable now has a T junction so this mixer can pick up the bass signal, and my tie-clip microphone on my bass strap picks up stage ambient sound, and I can set the mix to suit me. It would also take a line feed from the FOH mixer etc.

 

It worked well on the first outing other than my tendency to move the sliders while altering the channel volume, and my belt loop lash-up failing. My MK2 has a cover over the sliders and a better belt mount. 

 

In summary, it's slightly larger than a Behringer P1, or an LD HP1, but it's cheaper than either, and a lot more versatile, and it can be left on your rig, or attached to you without too much effort.

Reminds me of the old Behringer Xenyx 302USB but with a mic preamp on the 2nd channel rather than just a line in, looks very handy. Can it be configured to use the second channel for audio playback over USB?

I have one of the 302s as well in my practice rig. The EQ on the second channel can be used to drop out the bass on either the attached MP3 player or the USB feed from the PC. - best feature in my opinion.

 

On the Micromix USB1 , the PC feed is switched between main out or headphone out, via their level controls, but with no access to EQ.

 

They do however,  have a Micromix USB2 which appears to be a copy of the Behringer Xenyx 302.
