Pros A solid digital mixer. At the front, there are four XLR balanced mic inputs with one button assigning phantom power to all or none, and each is paired with a balanced TRS line in socket. There’s also a Vocal Enhancer, which is effectively a four-band EQ designed to give the voice clarity. So far, so good, but it’s the mixing desk that leads to some head-scratching. The first four channel strips are familiar enough.

This extends to the Aux controls which are multi-function, too: Still, it would have been nice to have MIDI ports, though their inclusion would likely mean a higher price-point. Cons Takes a bit of effort to master. Sound-wise, the MDX is as clean as a whistle, and channel Edorol is flexible and transparent – no analogue colouration here.
Any changes show up in the backlit LCD, which switches to display whichever parameter you’re adjusting. A closer look reveals we’ve moved beyond analogue-type operation.
While some hanker for the character imbued by the circuitry of analogue desks, this machine edirrol it clean.
The first four channel strips are familiar ediro. It suffers a little from digital multifunction overload – enough to confuse at the outset – and an absence of MIDI ports and levels sliders also count against it. There are three Power Compressors available as inserts and they work really well with guitarsand vocals. Cursor, Utility, Value and Display buttons feature, as does a Scene button.
Combining Room Acoustic Control with Finalize creates a quick route to a powerful, eeirol master that should sound good on any system – provided you’ve got the basic arrangement and mix sorted in the first place. If you don’t mind 16rx learning curve, the MDX is an attractive option for project-studio audio control. Image 2 of 2 Audio interfacing is handled by a separate box.
There’s a Narration Enhancer which combines a de-esser and enhancer and does a tidy job with close-miked, spoken-word material. At the front, there are four XLR balanced mic inputs with one button assigning phantom power to all or none, and each is paired with a balanced TRS line in socket.
Edirol MDX review | MusicRadar
Pros A solid digital mixer. Each has a low-cut filter at 75Hz, three-band EQ, pan, solo and mute, but a couple of things make it eddirol that we’re dealing with a decidedly digital device here.
Further edrol, you’d expect to see level sliders, but they’re actually rotary pots with centre detents, which could be off-putting to many. There are also control room outs and a single quarter-inch headphone socket, plus the data-connection socket for hooking it to the audio module. Aux Return 1 has quarter-inch jack sockets.
In certain ways, this system enables you to control a computer-based mix in analogue style, although there are no transport controls on the mixer’s fascia. However, the signal-processing options are not only useful but sound great.
The mixer appears reasonably sturdy if lightweighttakes up edriol space and has a bonus pair of line ins.
Digital mixers can prove a headache for those who are used to traditional studio gear. Punch it in and you have to twiddle one knob to access one of the 32 frequency bands, and then use another to boost or cut, then move on to another frequency band with the first knob.
They’re designed to emulate vacuum tube amps and compressors, and operate on low, mid and high frequencies. So far, so good, but it’s the mixing desk that leads ediirol some head-scratching. While it can’t be used when the device is set to 96kHz and is hooked up ediro USB although it can be used at 96kHz in standalone modeprojects to which the effect is applied come alive. The Room Acoustic Control resides here too, as does a peculiar implementation of a band stereo EQ.
These are concerns that apply to Eirol latest bright idea: There’s also a Vocal Enhancer, which is effectively a four-band EQ designed to give the voice clarity.
Works well with a computer. You can save configurations for later recall. The EQ mid is sweepable and there’s also the facility to Q the frequency range, but rather than multiple or concentric rotaries, you’ve got multi-function rotaries at the right that adjust mids for the eight channels that have EQ controls. There are six effects available, each of which can be adjusted, and the Natural preset is great.
