Toft ATB16 16-Channel Mixer Details

The Toft ATB console, though a new design, is the culmination of over 40 years of Malcom Toft's design. Over the years, the Trident Series 80 console has heard its praises time and time again for its excellent quality, pristine accuracy, and most of all, its premium vintage equalizer. This powerful combination produced an enormous amount of hit records and is still revered as one of the best analog recording consoles made to date. With so much history behind the Trident name, Toft Audio Designs is proud to announce that the Series 80 boards have been redesigned by the original designer himself, Malcolm Toft. The end result is none other than the new Toft ATB Series Consoles.

Best EQ Money Can Buy

The Toft ATB Console packs the same powerful equalizer that was used on the Trident Series 80 boards. The ATB's EQ section is regarded as one of the best sounding Equalizers on the market today! The super musical four-band EQ on the Toft ATB unleashes all your creativity without any limits or boundaries. The Toft ATB equalizer is your ultimate tool in your arsenal.

Reinforced Metal Standoffs

"Snap-in clip" type potentiometers: This type of pot has a metal frame which solders to the PCB , thereby providing structural support for the terminals. Think of it like each pot having its own little suit of armor protecting it from all manner of vibration, torsions and undue pressure...this change evolved to make the board more rugged and able to take more abuse!

More Structural Support

The ATB chassis has received a lot of attention from the engineers at Toft Audio Designs and now boasts an interlocking brace system which provides precise vertical alignment for each channel card while mechanically decoupling them from stress on all axes. Think of this as a architectural retrofit that keeps the guts of the board more protected.

Multi Color Solo/Mute LED

One of the most requested upgrades is in regards to solo indication. So here it is! No more frantic fingers running up and down the board to find that one depressed solo switch. The mute indicator is now a tri-color LED, which provides a channel-specific visual cue of "mute", "solo" and "mute-solo" states.

Balanced Through and Through

You asked for it , you've got it! The new ATB consoles now feature balanced direct outs and monitor outs. Offering users the features they request, Toft Audio Designs insures that your projects get done with the quality and performance you expect out of a console descended from a long and successful heritage.

All Pro

There is nothing stopping you from tracking a platinum album with the ATB Series Consoles.
