P-Mix Motorized Fader Automation System (optional extra)

Derived from the API Vision Automation System used extensively in the Vision and Legacy Plus consoles, API now offers an optional motorized fader automation system for the 1608 console called P-Mix. New console orders can be factory-fitted with P-Mix, and existing 1608 consoles can be ‘field retrofitted’ with new P-Mix automation systems.

Combining system reliability, user flexibility and operational simplicity, P-Mix offers a host of features found only in the most expensive and sophisticated console automation systems costing many times more.

The main features of the P-Mix Motorized Fader Automation Systems include:

  • Reliable, self-contained system requiring no external computer
  • Individual Switch Control on each fader
  • Global Control Panel in the console Center Section
  • Files are easily saved to standard SD memory cards
