The Soundcraft Signature 12 is a 12 channel analog mixer with built-in audio interface, 2 aux channels, switchable hi-Z inputs and effects. With the help of a DAW or recording software you record sound with your computer. After recording the sound, you digitally edit the audio with software plugins on your computer. Turn on the 48V phantom power and record sound with a condenser microphone. This way you can make sound recordings of high quality. Do you like to use hardware audio processors, such as a tape delay or compressor? You connect it to one of the 2 bus channels.
