Dynacord CMS-600 Mk 3 Mixer. The best mixer for Solo Performers / Duos
If you are a singer, dj or any other type of performer using active speakers, them this mixer should be on your list of must haves. All the features of the Powermate 600-3, but without the amplifier.
DYNACORD presents the latest member of its exclusive mixer family: CMS 600. It is versatile, lavishly equipped, and a no-compromise approach in its design and production quality. The CMS 600 is suitable for a variety of professional applications – live performances, recording studios, or fixed installations. The light (only 5.8 kilograms) and compact design makes it easy to carry.
The high-quality equipment of the CMS 600 includes ultra low-noise and low-hum, electronically balanced XLR microphone inputs (with an extremely low distortion factor, typically < 0.002%), a nine-band stereo equalizer in the master section, and switchable low-cut filters that intervene at 80 Hz. An integrated USB 2.0 digital interface of studio quality is suitable not only for live recordings but also the playback of recordings and interval music. In addition to the classic six mono and two stereo analogue inputs, the CMS offers two stereo digital inputs via USB. Each channel boasts three sends – FX (post-fader), AUX (switchable globally pre-/post-fader), and Monitor (pre-fader) – as well as a Balance/Pan control, a Mute and PFL switch, and a volume fader with Peak and Signal display.
The CMS 600 is equipped with two separately editable effects units with 2 x 100 factory presets optimized for live performance and 2 x 20 user presets covering the widest range of live and recording needs. The effects are switchable remotely (via MIDI or foot switch), while a large, contrast-rich OLED display allows user-friendly operation.
A rack-mount kit for integration into 19-inch racks is available as an option, as is a made-to-measure bag for safe and easy transport.
“We have equipped the CMS 600 exclusively with high-end components,” said Martin Traut, DYNACORD’s Senior Product Manager. “ALPS faders and potentiometers, low-noise and low-hum XLR inputs, and high-quality microphone preamps provide a foundation upon which the highest pro-audio standards are met. The result is a mixer suitable for many applications in which few channels but high audio quality are required – whether in live performance, recording, or fixed installation. For me, there isn’t a single mixer in this price category that can touch it for the quality of its feature set and the excellence of its sound.”
