Frequently Asked Questions



How can I use the Split Mix 6 as a splitter?

To use the Split Mix 6 to split a signal, simply disengage the Splitter/Mixer switch on the designated output channel. This will send the signal from the Main input, out the XLR or TRS output port for the designated channel. 

How can I use the Split Mix 6 as a mixer?

To use the Split Mix 6 as a mixer, simply engage the Splitter/Mixer switch on the designated channel. All input channels with the Splitter/Mixer switch engaged will be combined and sent to the Main Output. 


Can I use both split and mix functions simultaneously?

Yes, it is possible to use some channels for mixing and others for splitting, though each channel will need to be designated to a single function at a time. For instance, one may use the a few channels to split a music signal to several outputs  while using the remaining channels to mix together microphone signals from different locations to playback through the main output. 


Can I use the individual channel outputs when the channel is in mixer mode?

Yes, when a channel is set to mixer mode, the input will be routed back to it's output for a separate direct mono output. This will be post-level adjustments made with the channel level knob on the front.


Can the Split Mix 6 be mounted to a rack?

For secure mounting, use a universal rack shelf available from various rack manufacturers or your local musical instrument dealer. Split Mix 6 fits into a standard 19" (483 mm) rack. Please allow at least an additional 4" (102 mm) depth for the connectors on the rear panel. Be sure there is enough space around the unit for sufficient ventilation. Do not place Split Mix 6 on high temperature devices (such as power amplifiers) to avoid overheating.


Are the inputs and outputs of the Split Mix 6 balanced or unbalanced?
