In a consolidation of the Harman Mixer Group product portfolios, Soundcraft has released the classic BB100 console (formerly available from Amek) as one of its analog broadcast consoles, finalizing the restructuring of the broadcast offerings from Soundcraft and Studer.
The configurable desk is available in four frame sizes, and can be built with or without up to eight subgroups. Each model has a choice of mono and stereo inputs, with eight aux buses and up to five stereo returns (depending on module configuration).
Broadcasters can have up to four clean-feed outputs with talkback. These outputs can be changed (using internal jumpers) to an output matrix fed from the groups and main output. Also available is the Control Room Monitor section, which has external inputs and outputs for main and near-field speakers. One of the sources has a 4-input sub mixer for returns from video machines.
Other features of the BB100 include “soft” mute circuits, fader starts as standard, external mute control, stereo input channels with M-S (sum and difference) switches, direct outputs on all mono input channels and conductive plastic faders.
