Soundcraft’s GB4 (pictured) is a dual-mode, 4-bus mixing console that uses the GB30 mic preamps and EQ designed by founder Graham Blyth for the company’s 30th anniversary in 2003, and will be on display at Harman Professional Group’s booth, #909. The desk was built for mid-sized fixed installations, such as clubs, theaters and houses of worship, as well as regional touring sound systems.
Available in 12 to 40 mono-channel frame sizes, each with two full-featured stereo channels, the desk’s dual-mode topology allows it to be used on front-of-house or monitor duties with fader control of group or aux outputs.
Unique mechanical features include a rugged steel chassis with a sloping rear connector panel, making it easier to configure from the front of the desk, while the integral power supply has a link option for an external backup PSU.
The console also features an output matrix with seven feeds to four outputs being fed from the group buses and main L/R/C (mono) outputs. All input modules were constructed with individual vertically mounted PCBs fitted to the steel chassis front panel with individually nutted potentiometers.
Additional features include direct outputs on every channel, two stereo returns, talkback facilities, 100mm faders, switchable +48-volt phantom power on every channel, eight aux sends (four being pre/post-switchable), 18dB/octave highpass filters and 12-segment LED metering.
