It features a total of 18 analog inputs, 8 mic preamps, up to 19 simultaneous studio-grade effects and a full suite of plug-in algorithms and professional internal effects, including a high-quality stereo reverb and classic emulations of guitar and bass amplifiers.

The input EQs (Standard, Vintage and Smooth) enable a wide range of sounds and a flexible sound-sculpting environment. A master processor on the main outputs allows a final fine-tuning of the overall sound.

A USB port for the internal two-track player and recorder, MIDI ports and footswitch input provide maximum flexibility.

M18 INPUTS & OUTPUTS

The six XLR and two Combo connectors that are present on the M 18’s rear panel provide 8 mic preamp inputs, which are designed to lay the foundations for a transparent, warm and dynamic sound. Line inputs have been developed with the same focus. The 10 TS jacks from 9 to 18 provide the line inputs of the M 18. Two of them, 9 and 10, are switchable to Hi-Z – High Impedance input (1M?) – and allow direct connection of passive or low-level instruments directly, without the need for an adapter. This is the ideal solution for acoustic or electric or bass guitars with passive pickups. The remote-controlled Mic Gain allows the user to control the Mic Preamps and Line input Gain even at high distance from the M 18 box. All the settings are stored in the snapshot memories and can be recalled according to the user’s needs. Six +22 dB balanced AUX Outputs are on hand to connect stage monitors or external effect processors, in case the M 18’s internal processing is not sufficient for the user’s needs. The +22 dB balanced MAIN MIX outputs are supported by a pair of male XLR.

 

M18 ANCILLARY CONNECTIONS

A headphones stereo output completes the M 18’s audio input and output suite. Using the Personal Mix function on the PHONES menu of MixRemote App it is possible to create a fully personalized stereo monitoring. The headphones’ output also offers MAIN MIX and, alternatively, PFL listening. MIDI IN and OUT ports are also present on the rear panel, allowing the connection of various types of MIDI controllers. The footswitch port allows connection of a single or double stage footswitch to recall effects’ presets or to mute effects’ returns, as well as providing several other control functions. A USB type-A port allows connection of USB devices, such as pen drives or hard disks, to create a complete stereo system for playback and audio recording: this supports all the most common audio file formats, both high-quality and compressed. The intuitive graphics of MixRemote App helps the user to manage song playlists also with the AUTO play function.

 

MIXREMOTE APP

The MixRemote App enables complete and versatile control of the RCF M 18 Digital Mixer. Developed for iOS and Android, the MixRemote App has been designed with musicians in mind and is very simple to use, thanks to its intuitive Graphic User Interface. Each page or channel functions can be reached with a couple of touches of a single hand – an essential convenience while playing.

 

INPUTS

MixRemote App has been developed to ensure a quick and intuitive interaction with the M 18 digital mixer. Special care has been taken to offer consistent navigation among pages. The screen area is divided into 5 different zones: click on the dots to discover them.

 

FX SEND

The main page presents three fader layers to control the FX sends. FX1-FX2-FX3 allows three internal FX feeds.

 

STUDIO GRADE EFFECTS - SEND

The M 18 digital mixer can provide up to 19 simultaneous effects. Three of them are defined as “SEND EFFECTS” and are fed by dedicated FX SENDS. FX1 is a particularly deep and transparent reverb, providing a realistic simulation of large ambients, such as halls, or rooms and plates. FX2 is a professional delay with a tap time up to 2500 ms and dedicated filters on the feedback signal, thus creating interesting sounds and complex tapping effects. FX3 is an assignable multi-effect with several choices: chorus, flanger, pitch shifter, among the others.
