MIXREMOTE APP

The MixRemote App enables complete and versatile control of the RCF M 18 Digital Mixer.

Developed for iOS first, 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.

MIXUPDATE APP

UPDATE AND BACKUP TOOL FOR THE RCF M18 DIGITAL MIXER
MixUpdate is a necessary application to update the M 18’s firmware. Follow carefully the instructions to perform the firmware update.

MixUpdate also features BACKUP and RESTORE functions. BACKUP allows saving all the Snapshots, Shows and Effects’ Patches from your mixer into a USB stick inserted in the M 18.

Then, the RESTORE command brings the contents back to the M 18, either the same or a different one.

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.
MULTI FX

A unique function that is available only in the M 18 digital mixer is the MultiFX effects chain. This powerful option can be applied to up to 4 channels:

  • A freely ordered chain of three effects – Pitch Shifter, Chorus/Flanger, Delay – can be inserted into channels 5 and 6 or, alternatively, 7 and 8
  • Channels 9 and 10, which also have a selectable Hi-Z input line, provide an insert effect chain of 5 simultaneous effects.

Two realistic amp modeling channels

Designed for musicians. Two line inputs can be switched to a Hi-Z mode and host several realistic amp modeling simulators. Guitar and bass players can count on as many as 11 simulators specifically created for them: Darkface ‘65 (US), JazzC (JP), Rock ‘64 (UK), Rock 800 (UK) Crunch, Rock 900 (UK) Lead, Top30 (UK), Modern (US), BassMate (US), BassAmp (DE), Markbass Little Mark III (IT), Markbass TTE 500 (IT). The new firmware version adds a further four Amp Simulators: Slo88 Crunch (US), Slo 88 Lead (US), Overange 120 (UK) and Heavy 51 (US). It is also possible to substitute one of the Amp Simulators with a versatile Acoustic Simulator. Combine each amp with many different cabinets and explore various sound possibilities, emulating three types of microphone and three distinct positions: Near on axis, Near off axis, and Far from cabinet (1 m). The wide range of integrated sound options will allow every musician to re-create his own personal familiar sound without the need to transport heavy and bulky amplifiers and cabinets.
