Sony DMX-P01 Portable 4 Ch Digital Eng Mixer - Used

With full 24-bit processing and 48/96kHz selectable sampling, the Sony DMX-P01 Portable Digital Mixer delivers studio-quality mixing of up to four microphone or line sources in an incredibly compact, go-anywhere package.

NOTE: This unit is ex-hire. The unit is in good working conditions with some signs of cosmetic wear. No power supply or batteries are included.

Brilliantly engineered with an intuitive control panel for fast, easy, accurate adjustment, the DMX-P01 packs a host of features for in-the-field use. On-board digital limiter/compressors assure stable levels when contending with real-life sound sources. Up to ten "scene memories" recall mixer settings for instant re-configuration in multiple shooting scenarios, and control settings can be locked against inadvertent adjustment.

Sound recordists and camera crews will also appreciate the convenience of video-friendly features like flexible meter scaling and simple matching of mixer output and camera audio return levels.


High sound quality with digital technology

In order to provide high sound quality for ENG and EFP applications, the DMX-P01 offers full digital audio processing - 24-bit A/D and D/A converters, 32-bit internal digital processing for maximum throughput and selectable sampling rate of either 48kHz or 96kHz

Full parameter controls on front panel

All of the controls are cleanly organized and logically placed on the front panel. Parameters that are used less frequently are stored internally and accessed only when needed. Using the front-panel controls and easy-to-read LCD allows full control of every parameter without the need to remove the unit from its carrying case. Backlight for low-light conditions, LCD Heating for low-temperature conditions.

Panel-Lock and Parameter-Lock Features

Safeguards against inadvertent operation. The Panel-lock feature, which can be applied to all of the controls, will not allow settings to be changed. In addition, the Parameter-Lock feature also avoids accidental parameter changes.

Camera-Audio Return-Level Check

The DMX-P01 enables the sound engineer to visually verify that mixer's audio levels match levels recorded to a camcorder tape, by using a camera return-level mode in the setup menu. The P01 simply sends a reference sine signal to the camcorder, and the level difference between the mixer output and camcorder return signal is displayed with a marker. Then, a quick adjustment to the L/R master of the P01 or REC level of the camcorder to place the marker beneath a CENTER MARKER indicated on the LCD, and the level adjustment is completed.

Flexible Meter Scales

Because the DMX-P01 is a digital mixer, the meter calibration can be easily changed without replacing the entire meter display. Six easy-to-change meter scale sheets are supplied, VU, PPM1 (BBC-type), PPM2 (DIN-type), PPM3 (NORDIC-type), PPM4 (IEC-type1), and dBFS. Simply insert the desired scale sheet and select the appropriate meter type from the setup menu. The DMX-P01 displays audio levels according to the scale selected.

Digital cascade

For applications requiring additional inputs, the DMX-P01 can be cascaded using a digital connection between mixers. A benefit of digital cascading is that a sound quality is not degraded.

Memory Function

Users can store and recall parameters from the setup menu. There are two memory functions: "Power-On Memory Recall", and "Scene Memory Recall" and "Power-On Memory Recal". : When the DMX-P01 is powered on, the system is capable of recalling parameters in three different ways (1) Default factory settings (2) The same settings as the last time the unit was used (Last memory) (3) The parameters of one specific scene memory (Scene No.0, 1, 2 etc.)

Scene Memory Recall. This feature allows users to recall up to ten user-defined parameter settings or the factory default settings. This is useful in situations where a single unit is required to serve multiple users or multiple shooting scenarios. The recallable parameters include: Level Meter Type, Low Cut Filter Frequency, Input Limiter, Output Compressor/Limiter-Link / M-S setup.

Digital Output

The DMX-P01 is equipped with digital outputs, which are used to send audio signal to digital equipment, such as DAT recorders. AES/EBU and S/PDIF coaxial interfaces are available.
