Samson Launches SM4 4-Channel Mixer
Samson, a provider of professional audio products, announces the new SM4 half-rack, four-channel line mixer designed to easily integrate into installation and commercial sound systems. The SM4 features a balanced microphone channel with two-band EQ, voiceover priority ducking, stereo line level inputs, as well as Bluetooth and Samson Stage XPD wireless compatibility. The SM4 is the perfect solution for environments such as fitness clubs, gyms, restaurants, nightclubs, and schools that require a streamlined, versatile audio solution.
The SM4 allows users to mix up to four channels of crystal clear audio. The mixer's studio-grade mic channel features a two-band EQ (bass and treble) to adjust the mic's tone without affecting the music. The music channel includes rear panel RCA inputs, as well as front-mounted stereo 1/4" and 1/8" inputs for easily connecting mobile devices. Bluetooth connectivity lets the user wirelessly stream music, while a USB port allows users to integrate an optional Samson Stage XPD Series wireless system.
The voiceover feature enables the user to lower the music (up to 30dB of ducking) while talking through a mic or using the XPD Wireless port. The voiceover threshold knob lets the user adjusts the active ducking hold time from 0.5-3 seconds. This feature adds critical intelligibility for activities such as leading a group exercise class or making announcements at a restaurant.
For fixed installations, the SM4 can be fixed using the included rackmount kit. It can be mounted side by side with a Samson CR88, CR288, or CR99 wireless receiver. The mixer's rear-mounted master volume control allows users to set the overall output level of the mixer, and stopping them from playing the system too loud and destroying connected speakers. It also features stereo XLR and RCA outputs, and a mono/ stereo switch for use with a mono sound system.
Samson's SM4 four-channel mixer is now available for $179.99 at the following retailers in the US: AV Now, Supreme, Sweetwater, American Musical Supply, The Music People, and Sam Ash Music.
