The Speck Electronics Xtramix X6 Line Mixer is a rack mounted analog line mixer that offers features and flexibility for use in the most serious recording applications.
It has been designed as a "quiet-transparent" platform that allows you to build a mixing system using the gear you already own. The X6 can be used to connect all your analog outboard gear regardless of the pedigree, interface to AD/DA converters, and, of course, virtually any synth or sampler. It is a fact that not all studios need a console style mixer with slide faders, so the X6 can often replace a studio desk style console and may be a good fit especially if space is at a premium.
The In's & Out's
Connect the X6 to any line level source: balanced, unbalanced, transformer, or transformer-less. The X6 has high headroom that will handle balanced signals up to +28dBu. All audio inputs and outputs are fully balanced and available on TRS connectors.

Amazing Mixer! I am so happy with it.Nov 19th 2021
I inquired about the updated Xtramix X6 before it was released and I am so glad I did. Once it was set up and dialed in, it just works so well. I have all my Synths patched in to the upper channel inputs. 4 Filterbanks on the 4 Aux send/returns, I can then route that to compressors and other processors on the group channels right from the aux return section, and I am even using the direct outputs from the compressor inserts to feed a separate line amplifier (DA-6) out to all my rack FX, which then all comes back to the Xtramix 6 lower channel inputs, and I have those routed to a group channel with a stereo EQ and compressor just for the FX! That was a run on sentence, but is there anything this mixer can't do? Probably, but it has handled everything I have thrown at it with ease. I am so happy that Vince took the time to update this mixer. No regrets here. 5 stars all the way.
